Garlicky Chicken Breasts

Things I Love to Eat...



Green Onions

Put them all together, and you've got Garlicky Chicken!

Do you want a fast, easy, yummy meal?  Try this.  Usually, I cook the chicken in smaller chunks and put it on a pizza, piled high with mozzarella.  But it's just as good sauteed in a nonstick pan (and probably a little better for maintaining a little waistline).

Garlicky Chicken Marinade
1 lb. chicken breasts (whole or cut into chunks)
2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 Tbsp. white vinegar
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
2 Tbsp. chopped green onions
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

Mix marinade ingredients and pour over chicken.  Refrigerate for at least one hour.  Then sautee, with marinade sauce, over medium to medium-high heat in a nonstick skillet until done.

I served this with a simple green salad: organic romaine hearts with celery leaves.  The celery leaves added an interesting peppery bite.  To add a little protein and extra flavor, I topped it with pumpkin and sunflower seeds, a little fresh grated parmesan, and an olive oil salad dressing.
