Balsamic Chicken Veggie Saute
Get Your Weekday Healthy On!
One of my main food strategies is to shoot for a healthier eating style throughout the week. This approach helps offset the indulgences that tend to happen on the weekend. You know what I mean… the dinner out with friends, the DQ splurge and the late night snacks with the extra libation. So during the week, it’s amp up the veggies and dial down the non-complex carbohydrates (white bread and other starchy foods, sugars etc..) The one thing I won’t sacrifice is flavor.
Flavorful, Healthy and Flexible
This recipe delivers a nice pop of flavor with just a few ingredients, most of which you probably have on hand – balsamic vinegar, honey, purchased Italian dressing and a pinch of crushed red pepper. The vegetables called for in this recipe were asparagus, shredded carrot and halved cherry tomatoes, but you can use other veggies as well. In an earlier post, I mentioned my plan to grow jalapenos, to replenish my pickled jalapeno supply. It turns out I planted some other type of very mild pepper. So I threw some of those into the saute as well. Bottom line, use whatever you like or have on hand.
Reboot with Brown Rice
We had some leftovers after this meal, so I did a reboot by serving it over some steamed brown rice. You could also use cous cous, or another grain of choice, for a more hearty version of this easy meal.
So break out the saute pan and cook up a rainbow of veggies to delight your taste buds and build up the immune system!
