01_pancakes_insta3

Nothing is more playful and healthier than mixing fresh veggie colors. In this recipe I wanted to make a happy and healthy meal, that is a perfect lunch or a dinner idea. Also I wanted to make it simple, by using basic salt and pepper flavor, that brings up a fresh taste of vegetables. Fully cooked chicken mixed with half cooked vegetables, keeps most of nutritional values in our plates.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 300g chicken breasts, skinless and boneless
  • 1 broccoli
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp oil

READY IN: 30min

Put a skillet on high heat, and wait until it is warm. Add 1 tbsp of olive oil. In my kitchen, during cooking, I prefer using as less oil as possible. It is much healthier consuming it in a fresh way, by pouring it on top of the already served meal.

Start with chicken meat, by adding it into a skillet. Let it cook fully on medium high heat. Season it with salt and pepper. You can also use a cover to cook it faster.

When meat is ready, lower the heat, and add veggies. Cook for couple more minutes, and leave broccoli, pepper and carrot half cooked.

Serve the meal with some herbs on top.

My 3 color choice was a RED pepper, a GREEN broccoli and an ORANGE carrot:

  • Pepper is a low calorie vegetable, full of vitamin A and C. In this recipe I prefer using a little bit chilly one.
  • Broccoli, full of vitamin C, with the combination of vitamins K and A, has a strong impact on our body’s detoxification system. Also, Calcium and the vitamin K are great for your bones.
  • Carrots are wonderful anti-aging food full of beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A. They are good for your skin, your eyes, and immune system. Also regular use of it can reduce cholesterol level, as well as lower the stress.
