The only hard part of this recipe is deciding which type of sauce to top it off with. The good news is that there’s no bad answer. Do yourself a favor and cook the broccoli and cauliflower in the same pan the chicken cooked in. Saves you one dish to clean and the veggies soak up that meaty flavor.
This classic combo is as easy to make as it is healthy to eat.
Feeling like classing it up a bit without, you know, actually being classy? Then this is the recipe for you. Elegant and understated, yet full of flavor. Healthy and easy to make, to boot!
View this recipe as more of a base and then add whatever spices and sauces you’re in the mood for. Keep it classic with some Italian spices and olive oil? Maybe some garlic tomato sauce? Or get a real wild and give it an Asian or Mexican kick? Go experiment and see what you like.
Cooking for one can seem like a fool's errand - so much time and effort to feed just one person. The trick is to minimize your effort while maximizing your output, or in cooking terms, do as little prep work as possible to produce a lot of food (all while keeping costs down, of course). Here are some tips to make cooking for one easy and productive:
Most grocery stores have the same layout, with fresh foods (produce, meat, and dairy) on the perimeter of the store, and processed foods (with longer shelf lives) on the aisles in the middle of the store. Since we try to primarily eat whole, unprocessed foods, we tend to stick to the edges of the store as much as possible.
When comparing our options in the grocery store, we look at the ingredient list and ask ourselves a few key questions. How many ingredients do this have? Do I know what these ingredients are? Is sugar one of the first few ingredients? There’s no hard and fast rule, but generally the fewer ingredients, the better. The more easily pronounced ingredients, the better. The farther down sugar occurs on the ingredient list, the better (if it appears at all).
