Italian White Bean Chicken Recipe

Getting a healthy homemade meal onto the dinner table during the week is challenging at best for most parents. It is certainly something that I personally struggle with. I’m always up for a challenge, so when Whole Foods Market asked me to participate in the Cook More, Save More Blogger challenge I simply had to say yes. To participate in the challenge I needed to create a unique recipe, where each serving is under $4. Several members of my family are doing a low-carb diet at the moment, so even our holiday meals will be a little tricky this year. I tend to overdue it on the carbs most of the time, so maybe their diet will rub off on me a little. For my participation in the challenge, I made a creative and healthy weeknight dinner of Italian White Bean Chicken.

Italian White Bean Chicken Recipe

I absolutely love Italian food, but for me that usually means a bowl of pasta dripping in melted cheeses. I am so glad to say that this healthier Italian meal was just as, if not more, delicious and satisfying as that bowl of pasta. Making it even more appealing, this Italian White Bean Chicken recipe is a one pot meal!

ingredients:

2 clove garlic, sliced
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
4 zucchinis, sliced
2 (15.5 ounce) cans white beans, drained
2 roma tomatoes, chopped
10 fresh basil leaves
salt and pepper to taste

directions:

Prepare a skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Cook the garlic in the skillet until browned. Add the chicken and cook until slightly browned, about 3 minutes per side.

Stir in the zucchini and white beans into the skillet; cover and cook about 5 minutes. Scatter the chopped tomato over the dish; cover again and cook another 2 minutes. Add the basil leaves and cook 1 minute more.

Season with salt and pepper to serve.

While we all hope our home-cooked meals resemble the beautiful images sprinkled throughout Pinterest, reality doesn’t always match the fantasy. More often than not, busy weeknights and stretched budgets interfere, particularly as we head into the holiday season. But cooking at home doesn’t have to be stressful. Whole Foods Market is committed to providing an affordable mix of products and ingredients, along with helpful tools and in-store service to make grocery shopping and cooking more enjoyable.

Thank you to Whole Foods Market for providing me with a gift card to participate in the challenge. Whole Foods Market has a ton of in-store resources to help busy families make healthy and delicious meals, from value experts to online value guides to assist in menu planning.

One lucky About a Mom reader will win a $100 Whole Foods Market Gift Card! Giveaway is open to U.S. readers and ends on January , 2014 at 11:59pm EST.

  223. Cheating Spaghetti – cheating because it is so easy and because it is so healthy. Saute a pound of ground bison in a little olive oil with a can of drained straw mushrooms. Add Trader Joe’s marinara and whatever herbs and spices you feel like that day. Pour over Dreamfields thin spaghetti and top with parmesan. Add a side of pineapple tidbits and canned mandarin oranges, and you are good to go. The Dreamfields pasta makes it okay for a diabetic to have pasta as a main dish, and tastes great.By using short-cut ingredients, you can get this to the table in 30 minutes flat.While I prefer to cook with fresh ingredients, it is nice to have “pantry meal” options. The bison can be kept in the freezer, and everything else is shelf-stable, so this can be a life-saver when you can’t get to the store.
