We, well my husband and I, love this recipe. My daughter, who is 4 and pretty picky, not so much!


You Need:

2 teaspoons olive oil

1 onion, chopped

2 carrots or about 8-10 baby carrots, chopped

4 celery stalks, sliced

1 pound skinless/boneless chicken breast tenderloin, cut into strips trimming all visible fat

14.5 ounce can of diced tomatoes

1 teaspoon dried basil

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper


Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the vegetables; cook, stirring occasionally, until the begin to soften, about 10-12 minutes. Add the chicken and cook for about 5-8 minutes, the chicken at this point should look like the outside is cooked, but will not be cooked all the way through. Stir in the tomatoes and seasonings. Reduce the heat to low-medium and simmer, stirring occasionally, for an additional 10-15 minutes,  allowing  the flavors to blend and the chicken to cook completely.

You can eat this as is, or serve it over pasta or rice.
