Italian food is a favorite in my household, and when cooked WITHOUT all the cream and cheese added to it, it makes a very healthy and filling meal. I have seen different versions of this recipe, but I like the contrast of the warm mushrooms and the cold tomatoes in this one. You can add a tiny splash of balsamic vinegar to the tomato mix in the "beyond" part of the 30 days to healthy living.
4 chicken breasts
16oz of mushrooms ( I used crimini)
Fresh basil or basil cubes (2 or 3)
Garlic al gusto
4 Tbsps of olive oil
Paso a paso:
1) Add 2 Tbsps of olive oil to a large frying pan and cook chicken breast until golden on both sides.
2) Add chopped mushrooms, basil and S&P al gusto. Lower heat and cover. Cook for 4 or 5 minutes. Turn chicken and stir mushrooms. Cook for another 3 minutes.
3) While chicken is cooking, dice tomatoes and mix in with olive oil, garlic and a little more S&P. This goes on top of the chicken when serving.
4) Serve chicken and tomato mix on a salad or with brown rice/quinoa pasta. Mangia, mangia!
