One Skillet Meals--Chicken and Veggies



One Skillet Meals--Chicken and Veggies


I am trying to lose weight and cutting carbs and amping up protein, fruits and veggies in place of simple starches so much.  I am a big fan of vegetables, but my spouse is not.  I am also a big believer in work smarter, not harder.  I love one skillet creations as does most of my family.
This is one I threw together on a whim and it was delish!

Ingredients:
1 stalk celery washed and sliced
1 small yellow squash sliced
1 medium onion sliced
1 medium head of fresh broccoli washed and divided into florets
1 tsp minced fresh garlic
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 pint of sliced mushrooms
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into cubes
3 Roma tomatoes washed and chopped
1/4 cup Sun dried tomato pesto
Shredded parmesan cheese

3 Tbsp olive oil

Directions: 

In large non stick skillet place olive oil and brown chicken cubes and mushrooms
add in all the rest of the veggies and sautee them for 10 min on med. high heat.
Add in seasons with veggies including the 1/4 cup of Sun dried tomato pesto.
Cover and steam for 5 more minutes until broccoli is tender but not mushy.


Once veggies are tender but not mushy remove from heat.

Garnish with shredded parmesan cheese for flavor.
