Sauteed Chicken

 

My Chiropractor is teaching me how to cook!

After almost two years of back problems, I broke down and went to a chiropractor.

It turned out that he also practices nutrition as well.

He told me I am addicted to sugar.

The next visit he suspected I may have an allergy to wheat and corn.

After whining how my entire diet revolves around wheat and I have already made huge changes in my eating habits, I surmised that I now have to learn to cook in a  completely new way.

I let him know I was already steaming my veggies. But then I realized I was using a plastic steamer appliance.

(I am on the journey to rid my home of as much unhealthy stuff as I can: including teflon and plastics in the kitchen. Note I said journey and still used a non-stick skillet here. UPDATE: I now use a ceramic coated skillet.)

He responded by giving me healthy recipes and explaining to me how to steam veggies with chicken!

I adapted his recipe somewhat to come up with this version.

I always MAKE IT MY OWN!

It is very simple and delicious!

Sautéed Chicken

  • In a large skillet, pour in a few tablespoonfuls of Chicken Broth/Stock (read label for no MSG).
  • Heat it till it begins to simmer.
  • Place into skillet your sliced boneless Chicken Breasts ( try to use antibiotic/hormone free and free-range).
  • Sauté the chicken pieces for about 2 minutes.
  • Turn chicken.
  • Add to skillet: Crimini Mushrooms and veggies. (I used leftover mixed veggies and green beans.)
  • Cover skillet and steam for about 3 minutes.
  • Uncover. Stir and sauté for about 4 more minutes.

There you go, a healthy alternative to stir frying with oil!

In under 10 minutes!

What veggies do you want to steam/sauté with your chicken?

    I forgot to tell you a few things. First, I added a bit of soy sauce to the broth here to compliment the mushroom flavor. And also to not get turned off by the mushrooms! If mushrooms aren’t your thing, no worries. The first time I made sautéed chicken, I used broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots. The broth gave them a delicious flavor! So, MAKE IT YOUR OWN. Use veggies that you like! 🙂
