What I Ate For Dinner Last Night

Hey There!

I hope you are doing great today!

We had a great workout this morning and we are hitting on all cylinders!

I wanted to share with you a recipe I devised last night.   I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to eat.  I had prepped for lettuce wrapped turkey bacon burgers, but I had a hankering for more vegetables.  And yet…I didn’t want a salad.  I didn’t want roasted veggies.  So, here’s what I ended up with just from ingredients I had on hand at home:

    This is the actual dish on my stove last night.

The ingredients:

  • 2 packages of cooked chicken
  • 2 red bell peppers, chopped
  • 2 stalks of asparagus, chopped
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 2 handfuls of grape tomatoes, halved
  • 2 medium yellow squash, chopped
  • 2 zucchini, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon of dried basil
  • 1 jar of basil pesto
  • Little salt and pepper to taste (every time I type the words “salt and pepper”, the song “Push It” goes through my head!)


In a large saute pan, pour a couple teaspoons of olive oil in the bottom of the pan and let it heat up.  Add all the veggies and saute for about 5 minutes.  Add the chicken and saute 5 – 10 more minutes.  Make sure everything is cooked through, but not too soft; keep the veggies with a little “crunch” to them.   Add the dried basil at the end and salt and pepper (there it goes again) to taste.

It was very delicious.  You can put a bit of this over a bed of brown rice, but I just ate it “as is” last night.

Grab this recipe and use it when you have a hankering for extra veggies!  You can keep it vegetarian style or you can add some shrimp instead of chicken.

I hope you are having the best Thursday ever!

My recipes are your recipes!
