Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or oil of choice

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into ½-inch-thick slices

  • 2 cups broccoli florets

  • 1 large zucchini cut into slices

  • 1 medium bell peppers cut into ½-inch-thick slices

  • 1 medium yellow onion halved and cut into ½-inch-thick slices

  • 3-4 cloves garlic minced or crushed

  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning or your favorite seasoning blend!

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in large skillet to medium, high heat. Add the chicken, veggies, garlic, and spices.

  2. Cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally until the veggies are soft and tender and the chicken is golden and cooked through.

  3. Serve with rice, pasta, toasted bread or eat as is for a low-carb meal!

You may want to add some more vegetables depending on your tastes—I like using garlic and ginger for added flavor. I also like to use rice because it cooks up so quickly!

You can get this recipe in 15 minutes. That's right, you'll have a healthy dinner on the table in less than half an hour!

The only thing you need to do is stir-fry some chicken breast and veggies. The rest is done for you by your slow cooker or skillet—no need to dirty another pan!

  • If you're feeling adventurous, try substituting tofu for the chicken breast and adding an eggplant or cauliflower side dish as well.

  • If making this meal as suggested seems too simple for your tastes but don't want all those extra calories from added oil and salt then add some chopped veggies like mushrooms or bell peppers along with whatever meatless protein option fits best with what else is being served alongside it—elements like garlic powder will enhance both flavors without overpowering them either way (plus they're good for digestion too).

With the right spices, this healthy meal will be a delight for your family. You can even turn it into a great weeknight dinner by adding some brown rice or quinoa!
