Hey guys! I’ve mentioned in the past that I am a huge askhole i.e. someone who constantly asks for advice yet does the complete opposite of what they are told. Apparently the same applies with cooking. I spend ages searching for a recipe using a certain ingredient, yet rarely ever follow it. After spending some time Googling & searching the Whole Foods app for a chicken-based recipe on Sunday, I narrowed down a few:
Despite them all sounding delish, I ended up repeating my dinner from the night before because it was such a hit.
As I freestyled my way through, unfortunately I don’t have a recipe to share with exact quantities. I think this is one of the reasons why I tend to cook more than I bake. The former leaves room for creativity, whereas baking projects usually require careful measurement and exact technique. With that being said, here is a “non-precise, feel-free-to-play-around” gist of this chicken stir-fry:
Feta & Almond Chicken Stir-Fry
- Chicken breast, cubed
- Zucchini, sliced
- Mushrooms, sliced
- Green beans, cut into 2-inch lengths
- Onions, sliced
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Lemon juice
- Salt to taste
- Feta cheese, crumbled
- Almond flakes, toasted
- Over medium heat, pan-fry cubes of chicken breast until cooked through and set aside.
- Re-heat skillet and sauté zucchini, green beans, mushrooms and onions until the vegetables are tender. Add in the chicken, salt & squeeze of lemon juice and cook for a further minute.
- Turn off heat, toss chicken & vegetables in olive oil. Mix in almond flakes & feta crumbles and serve.
Gotta love those healthy fats! Taste aside, I know my hair and skin appreciated the extra dose. And before it looks like I’m low-carbing, I’ll leave you with a picture of the delicious oatmeal raisin cookie I enjoyed earlier on that evening:
You guys know I love my chocolate but if we’re talking Starbucks cookies, oatmeal raisin wins hands-down!
Cookies with chocolate chips or raisins?
Do you prefer to bake or cook?
