As a foodie, I love to pore over the Wednesday Food section, looking for great recipes and inspiration for dinner. Healthy eating is so much easier when you have recipes that are the perfect balance of nutritious and delicious. Yesterday I hit the jackpot!
I came across this recipe for Lemon Chicken “Steaks” with Summer Salad and Tzatiki. (Apparently it ran in newspapers and websites nationwide). We tend to keep a lot of fresh vegetables and gourmet staples like kalamata olives on hand, so we had most of the ingredients we needed to make it for dinner last night. (I substituted a 1/4 cup of lite sour cream for the 2 cups of Greek yogurt for tzatziki to save myself a trip to the store.)
My husband and I did a little mindful chopping while sipping a glass of sauvignon blanc. He grilled up the chicken and we heated up a couple of Morning Star Chik Patties for our vegetarian daughter, and before long, our family dinner was on the table.
The beauty of this meal is that when it was over, I chopped up the leftover chicken and mixed it with the salad and tzatziki, and voila! Lunch today!
