Italian Chicken

My children, like most, can sometimes be a bit picky about what they eat. Chicken falls into the category of food that they aren’t usually enthusiastic about. That’s probably because I enjoy cooking a lot of Asian-inspired chicken meals. Those meals tend to have a lot of bold flavors that the kids don’t always love. This Italian Chicken, however is still full of flavor, but it’s not quite as bold as some of my other chicken meals. It is a hit with the kids, and super simple to prepare.

Garlic Tomatoes

These garlic tomatoes are so easy to prepare, and are extremely versatile. I use them with chicken, tilapia, and even as sauce on my paleo pizza sometimes. The trick to making these is to heat the oil (I like avocado oil), then add the garlic, let it simmer for a few minutes, then the Italian seasoning, let that simmer for a few minutes, and finally add the tomatoes. This allows the flavors of the garlic and the season to really open up.

Putting the Italian Chicken with Garlic Tomatoes all Together

There are a few different ways to cook this dish. The chicken can be baked in the oven or pan fried. You can then serve it over rice, cauliflower rice, or even pasta if you eat it. BJ’s Wholesale Club sells frozen cauliflower rice with no extra junk in it for a really reasonable price, or you can make your own using this recipe.

  • Apparently purple bell peppers exist! I was excited when my husband found this plant at @homedepot, and I’m even more excited that I haven’t killed it yet! 🎉 This will be a great way to help us eat the rainbow!
  • “I want to be strong like my mom.” That’s what my oldest told her gymnastics coach on the first day of lessons. Working out is as much for them as it for me. It makes me stronger, healthier, more patient, more energetic. It sets the right example for them. They see what a body is capable of. They see that women are strong. They see what hard work looks like. Yes, I do it for me, but I do it for them, too, and apparently, they are getting it. 🏋🏼‍♀️🤸‍♂️
  • I wanted salad for dinner tonight, so I made salmon burgers, topped with a mango salsa. I had mine on a pile of arugula and spinach and the rest of the family had theirs on buns. 😉Win-win
  • Woo-hoo!
  • Props to all of those ladies that can workout and still look cute. I am not one of them. 😂🤣Also, @erinoprea might be trying to kill me with her do anywhere workouts. 😂🤣😂🤣You should give them a try.
  • Finally some sunshine 🌞
  • Healthy doesn’t have to be complicated. Chicken sausage, sweet potatoes, bell peppers and broccoli (the peppers and broccoli I cut up yesterday for the kid’s veggie tray) on a sheet pan. Drizzle with avocado oil, sprinkle with salt, pepper, oregano, and some basil. Cook at 400 degrees for 20 minutes and you’re good to go.
  • Easy chicken stir fry for dinner tonight! I used chicken, veggies that I prepped earlier in the week for the kids’ veggie tray and the Stir Fry Sauce from @nomnompaleo. I can’t use orange just though, because it’s bad for my interstitial cystitis, so I used the juice from one of my kid’s juice boxes.... adapt and overcome, right?
  • Yesterday was a struggle with my health. I wanted to work out, but I knew that my body needed rest. It’s okay to rest. It’s okay to recover.
  • My three year old made me this crown and insists that I wear it all the time. She says it’s because I’m the Queen. 👸🏼👸🏼💁🏼‍♀️Clearly, she gets it.... 😂🤣
  • This week has been a rough one. The negative nancies were out in full force, but at the end of the day, their negativity has nothing to do with me, and everything to do with their own struggles. All I can do is offer kindness is return and keep doing what works for me. 🤷🏼‍♀️
  • There’s a 💯 percent chance that I would have completely forgotten that today was cinco de Mayo had I not gotten an email from @nomnompaleo today linking me to this recipe for Instant Pot Carnitas. So, clearly, I had to make it, and it’s SOOOOOO yummy! 😉
