With all the different kinds of foods that we consume, at times you just feel that your tummy needs a break. You feel you need more veggies, less oil, fewer carbs, in all just a healthy meal. But, the problem that people like me face is that we also need something that tastes scrumptious and good along with all the health benefits.
Specially, if you have children as demanding as mine, you basically fight a battle. When the demand is to make veggies look more appealing and to make their protein go leaner without them noticing. That’s when dishes like this are invented.
Eating Green or eating more greens is always good and if you manage to make recipes that makes your kids consume more greens. This Chicken cooked with Broccoli is one such recipe. I serve it with boiled white Rice, but you can always serve it with Brown Rice, Quinoa or even Barley.
I like to mix and match veggies and I feel Broccoli, onions go really well with Chicken. Add little Olive oil to a pan, followed by chopped Garlic. Once the garlic changes color, add the boneless pieces of Chicken followed by chopped onions. Further season with Red chili flakes, Black pepper powder, Garlic powder, Onion powder, salt, cumin powder and paprika. Once the Chicken is cooked, add the chopped Broccoli and stir fry for 5-7 minutes and its ready to serve. Serve with cucumbers and Avocado on the side and boiled Rice. You can always choose to serve it with any other grain of your choice.
My purpose for introducing these meals on my website is to just make more people aware of the fact that eating healthy does not mean eating tasteless. You can always incorporate more vegetables in your diet with excellent flavors. I hope you enjoy this quick meal which is not only nutritious but also filling and delcious.
