Weekday lunches can often be a bit of a challenge sometimes, but this recipe has become my go to for a quick, yet delicious concoction for a box lunch. It’s so simple that I often whip it up Monday morning before work if I ran out of time on Sunday. The ingredients fall into an extremely short list of chicken breasts (protein), sweet potatoes (carbs), broccoli (vegetables).
Easter brunch with our good friend Angela, who introduced my partner, Malcolm and I, has become a bit of a tradition. It’s lovely to see her walk through the front door with some type of rabbit ears or a bonnet on, each year something different. But tried and true, we always eat something spectacular and I knew exactly what I wanted to make. The hard part was getting it all completed by the time our guests arrived.
Now for those of you that may know me personally, you might be aware of one of my I obsessions…grocery shopping! I totally love it and drive from the city into the suburbs just to stock up. While I had a few jobs as a kid, one of the longest that I started in high school and even picked up some shifts while in college, was at a grocery store. To me, grocery shopping is like placing a kid in a candy store; I see so many opportunities to create so many spectacular dishes.
If you haven’t noticed, it’s cold outside…at times below freezing depending on where you live. But for some of us on the east coast, who normally see temperatures in the 50o’s Fahrenheit as an average, it is currently 21o’s F outside. What better way to warm up than with a nice big bowl of chili? The best part about this recipe is that it takes the beans out of the equation. While I won’t barraged you with why beans are not paleo or the reasoning’s behind why you should not eat them. You can Google that yourself, but honestly, beans are not friendly to your gut but this chili is!
