Okay, so when it comes to eating healthy, I seriously just throw random things together. I am no gourmet chef by any means (and I have been told this on many occasions). But, occasionally my random recipes lead to amazing things. This recipe tastes phenomenal, is low on fat, loaded with healthy, complex carbohydrates, and filled with the protein we need to build those guns up. With all that said, let's get started.
I guess we should start with a name...too bad I have NO idea what to call this! Someone else do me a favor and name it for me. But I can go over the ingredients with you.
They are as follows:
32. oz chicken
1 package of 5 min. couscous
1 cup of kale
1 cup of spinach
1/2 green bell pepper
1/2 red bell pepper
1 tbsp. olive oil
a small handful of crumbled goat cheese
salt & pepper
Alright, I know that is a lot of ingredients for a simple, quick recipe. But I kid you not, this took me 25 minutes to make!
To the left is the couscous I use for this recipe. You can find this at Aldi, but I am sure there are similar brands at Walmart. So the first thing I do is prepare the couscous. Bring some water to a boil, remove from heat, pour in your couscous, and cover it for five minutes. And BOOM you're done.
That was so easy Connor Blackmon could do it...
While the water is coming to a boil, go ahead and put a pan over the stove with 1tbsp. of olive oil on
medium heat. Chop up your bell peppers and zucchini. Once the pan is hot, add on your vegetables to saute them. Season with salt and pepper.
After about 6 minutes, add chicken into the same pan and add a dash more of salt and pepper.
Don't forget to season your couscous before it gets too dry.
Now, take your dish and put in your spinach and kale
Put your couscous on over the leaves, then your chicken and vegetables! Now, all that's left to do is top it off with some crumbled goat cheese and by squeezing half of a lime over it. Mix it all together and you have yourself 6-8 servings of one amazing dish!
