Healthy Doesn’t Have To Be Boring Chicken Dinner

I have been back on my super healthy kick and have been eating this dinner almost nightly.  It is super easy and my fall back recipe that I know is healthy, filling and low fat.  I always keep a bag of frozen veggies from Costco and a bag of frozen chicken breasts.

Serves 2


  • 2 frozen (thawed) or fresh chicken breasts
  • 2 cups frozen veggies (mixture of broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots), cooked according to package instructions
  • 1 package fresh white button mushrooms, cleaned and quartered
  • olive oil nonstick cooking spray
  • garlic powder
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons teriyaki sauce (low cal) or 1/4 cup soy sauce mixed with 1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice


Season chicken breasts with salt, pepper and garlic powder.  Spray a pan with nonstick cooking spray and cook chicken breasts until cooked through about 4-6 minutes on each side.  These can also be done on the grill or in a grill pan, however you prefer. Remove to a plate and set aside.

Spray pan again with nonstick cooking spray and add mushrooms. Season with salt, pepper and garlic powder and cook until tender for 3-4 minutes.  Pour mushrooms into plate with chicken.  Slice chicken into strips.  Place 1/2 cup rice on a plate, top with veggies, and chicken breast slices. Drizzle sauce choice over top of plate.
