Have you ever looked at what is in foods these days? Have you ever wondered why life has gotten so crazy that we all rely on processed "quick" foods and fast foods? Well I have had my eyes opened recently when we started to realize our oldest child could be ADD. I decided to clean up our diets and turn out lives around. I am a woman, married to a wonderful man who supports everything I do. We have 3 wonderful children who keep us on our toes and every day when I pick them up from school the first things out of their mouths is "mommy what's for dinner" so here it is...

Chicken with Fruit Chutney on a bed of Spaghetti Squash

So this pretty meal is absolutely refreshing and yummy.  Tonight we had a nice chicken breast with a fruit chutney served on a bed of spaghetti squash...The combo of apples, pears, cherries and nuts was a nice change for this family.

Chicken w/Fruit & Nut Chutney

Serves 4

4 chicken breast
salt & pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup dried cherries
2 apples, cored and sliced
1 pear, cored and sliced
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
4 tsp of brown sugar
1 cup water
3 tbsp cider vinegar
1/2 tsp ground ginger

1) Lightly sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.

2) In a large skillet, heat oil and cook chicken over medium heat until cooked through about 12 minutes, turning once. Transfer to a serving platter; cover, keep warm.

3) Add fruit and nuts to skillet; cook, stirring frequently, 2 minutes. For sauce, in a small bowl, stir together brown sugar, water, vinegar, and ginger. Add to the fruit in the skillet; cook and stir 2 minutes until slightly thickened. Serve chicken with sauce on top.

VERDICT: Yum...it may not be 100% clean but it's yummy and different.  Next time I will add a little corn starch to thicken up the sauce a little bit.  The kids loved the fruit.
