This meal came about from vegetables I needed to use before they spoiled. I have been trying to eat a bit healthier & this is the dish I came up with. They say you eat with your eyes, & this healthy dish is very tasty & colorful, I did not add salt & pepper to the veggies but you can if you so desire.

After completing this dish my husband and I could hardly wait to dig in. I calculated the nutritional value using MY FITNESS PAL Only 204 calories per serving. You can cut the chicken Breast into strips to equally distribute the chicken throughout the dish, or leave them whole as I did.

  4. Once carrots are somewhat tender, add in the remaining vegetables & optional chia seed if desired. Cook just until crisp tender. Stirring to prevent them from sticking or burning. Then remove cooked veggies to a medium size bowl or platter.
  5. Now add the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, and seasoned chicken Breast as desired. Cook over medium high heat until browned about 7 or more minutes, then flip to other side and cook until chicken breast is fully cooked and no pink remains.
