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 Sugar Snap Peas, Artichokes & Herbs...

So tonight's really yummy meal was good clean eating and Feingold friendly...it was so yummy I didn't even get a photo of it because everyone chowed down before I had a change to photography it, even my unexpected guest who showed up was amazed (single guy doesn't get many home cooked complete meals).

Chicken with Sugar Snap Peas, Artichokes & Herbs
Serves 4

  • 1 cup organic reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 2 teaspoons whole wheat flour
  • 1 pound chicken breast
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 8 ounces sugar snap peas, cut in half (I just threw them in, I didn't cut)
  • 1 14-ounce can quartered artichoke hearts, rinsed
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh herbs of choice (I use litehouse herbs)
  1. Whisk broth, mustard, salt, pepper and 2 teaspoons flour in a small bowl until smooth.
  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken in two batches, adjusting heat as necessary to prevent burning, until golden. Transfer the chicken to a plate; tent with foil to keep warm.
  3. Stir the broth mixture and add to the pan along with snap peas &, artichoke hearts. Bring to a simmer, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer and cook until the snap peas are tender-crisp, 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Return the chicken to the pan, nestling it into the vegetables, and simmer until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in herbs.

    VERDICT: yummy and so fresh.  I served this with homemade rice-a-roni and a green salad.  My poor bachelor friend didn't know what hit him.
