Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

Standard

WW chix dinIf you’re like me you’re always looking for a new way to prepare chicken. Let’s face it, chicken is a great lean protein, but after a while it can get really boring to eat. As a matter of fact I went through a period of almost 5 years where I didn’t eat chicken at all! I was that sick and tired of eating it. So earlier this week I was trying to decide what to prepare for dinner. I had some chicken breast tenders in the fridge (Nature’s Promise tenders were on sale when we were shopping). I started looking through my cabinets and decided to concoct a one pan meal made with the chicken, artichoke hearts, sliced black olives and diced tomatoes.

Well, it turned out delicious! Luckily there was some leftover and believe it or not I ate it for breakfast…..yum! I decided to go with a more Mexican flavor and used Adobo in place of typical Italian herbs. This is an easy, quick, one pan meal, here’s how I did it.

WW Chicken Dinner

1 lb. chicken tenders (or diced chicken)
1 can quartered artichoke hearts, drained
1 small can sliced jalapeno infused black olives, drained
2 cans of diced tomatoes (I prefer Hunt’s no salt added)
Adobo seasoning
salt and pepper to taste

Salt and pepper the chicken breasts and sauté in a pan with coconut oil (or olive oil). Add the rest of the ingredients, stir, and simmer until hot. Adjust seasoning to taste.

I ate this with a side of smashed cauliflower and it was delicious! Let me know if you like it. What’s for dinner at your house?
