Well, I fell into my problem of morning work outs and I had a poor mindset this morning. I knew I had a limited amount of time that I could squeeze one in after work so that is my plan (Dirty 30 Extreme).
That being said, I want to share another clean eating recipe… ranch chicken. Not only was this delicious and a large portion, but it also is just a one – pot meal.
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 pound of chicken – cute into bite sized pieces
1/2 red onion
2 peppers (I used one yellow and one orange)
1/2 can black beans drained and rinsed
1 bag of boil in a bag instant brown rice
1 can fire roasted diced tomatoes, undrained
1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
1 cup cheddar cheese
Ranch Seasoning (Mix the following in a bowl):
1 tsp of the following: dill, garlic powder, onion powder, dried minced onions
1 tbs: parsley
Salt & Pepper
- In a skillet, heat oil on medium high. Add diced chicken, diced onions, and ranch seasoning. Saute and stir often until most of the pink in the chicken is gone.
- Add bell peppers, zucchini, beans, tomatoes, rice, and chicken broth. Bring to a boil. Then simmer on low for 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked and rice is tender.
- Sprinkle cheese evenly over the skillet and let stand for 5 minutes or until the liquid is observed.
1 serving = 1/4 of the skillet (so 4 servings)
