Chicken and broccoli


Chicken and broccoli… That’s what I had in my fridge for dinner. I hadn’t been to the store yet this week. Not going to lie… I was not terribly excited about dinner. So I just started throwing things together and it turned out pretty spectacular if I do say myself. As with all things I throw together the measurements are not exactly precise… But that’s just when you Know you’re really cooking. Ha!


So I know that said it tastes good…didn’t necessarily say it was pretty. This is actually a picture of dinner reheated later that night when my husband ate dinner. Food is always prettier fresh.

Teriyaki Chicken

2 lbs chicken tenders

Marinate the chicken in:
– 1/3 c olive oil
– 1/4 c coconut aminos
– 1/2 – 1 tsp each: garlic, onion, ginger powders and salt
– 1 tbsp agave nectar

Let sit for about an hour. Get a sauté pan piping hot over med high heat. Cook chicken for 5-10 min per side. You don’t want to over cook them. You do want them to be done, so watch them.

Herby Broccoli

Cut the florets of broccoli off, rinse them in a strainer, and throw them Ina sauté pan with a lid. After a few minutes add a generous amount of olive oil. I then sprinkled herbs de Provence, salt, white pepper, and a little bit of Cajun seasonings. It took me two rounds of seasoning to get it to taste good to me. Then I cooked it until it was a bit toasty and it was sooooo good.

And that is one way to switch up chicken and broccoli blahs to chicken and broccoli wows!
