Every now and then life gets a little out of control. With everything else we have to get done, we often put the time in a kitchen as the last priority. I get days, and sometimes weeks, like that, but I have learned that for me, it is best to prepare ahead of these busy times, and be prepared! In the weeks that seems to fly by with busy schedules, I have in my freezer marinated, individually vacuum packed, chicken breasts and boneless pork chops. I also have several different kinds of mixes of bagged vegetables in the freezer. From these ingredients, it is easy, and rather effortless to make something tasty, fast, and healthy for the warm meals, even when the life gets so hectic, that you have only a few minutes on your hands.
Here's the chili marinated, sliced chicken breast, and the veggies, was sautéing in the pan, while I prepared the couscous in a vegetable stock, and after all the vegetable stock was absorbed, I added cinnamon to it. That cinnamon gives a great kick to it, and with the chili marinated chicken and vegetables, that had just salt and pepper, I have to say, I loved the combinations of the flavors, and this 'fast-food', while taking only minutes to prepare, was healthy, tasty, and made me feel, that even during the most frenzied times, I was still taking care of the important things in my life, like nutrition. I hope you enjoy it, as well. Now, have a relaxing weekend y'all ~ Cheers!
