Chicken and Veggies

Chicken and veggies are SO BORING, and so of course I’m always trying to find other ways to get my protein and veggies without sacrificing health and flavor. So this week, I tried a little recipe I found over at Paleo Plan. The very straightforward name is Garlic Chicken, Red Peppers, and Mushroom Sauce… and I have to admit, it wasn’t fabulous. It was only slightly more exciting than regular chicken and veggies. And it really didn’t make for very good photos, other than some good prep shots.DSC_0039

The recipe calls for just a little bit of coconut milk, which I guess I expected to create a sauce with a hint of coconut…but while it added some moisture, it really did not create a sauce. And I never tasted coconut. So that might just be me not knowing what coconut milk is really like.

I also chose to keep my chicken tenders in whole pieces rather than chopping them up. Just a personal preference. Still, I don’t think the flavors from the “marinade” really came through. DSC_0051

Regardless, it was fun to take the time to chop veggies and follow a new recipe – something I haven’t made time for in a while. Feel free to test this recipe out and let me know if you find a way to make it a little better. DSC_0047
