This is a quick weeknight supper that can be made in 30 minutes. It’s delicious, super healthy, and quick to prepare. This is a triple threat dinner!

I love the health benefits of chicken. It is high in protein and beneficial B vitamins. Also, when choosing pasture-raised chicken, you are getting higher levels of omega 3 and vitamin E which is important to reduce your risk of high blood pressure and cancer.

If you want to add more carbohydrate to this meal, for those high-performance athletes, serve this dish alongside brown or wild rice, or quinoa.
