I work out, I run, and I try to eat well. And I look pretty good–I mean, nobody’s complaining. But, I see some other women while I’m running, and think, “I want a body like that.” And I hear the answer is ‘eating clean’. So, on Tuesday I picked up two eating clean books, and immediately started flipping through, wondering what I would make for dinner with the chicken that was defrosting. I found a recipe for Chicken with Mangoes, and I happened to have several mangoes in my fridge from various friends trees. Yes, I have friends with mango trees!
Chicken with Mangoes
Adapted from the Everything Eating Clean Cookbook
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes
3 mangoes, diced
Garlic powder, chili powder, black pepper to taste (I held back because I wanted the children to eat it)
Saute chicken until almost cooked through, add mango and sprinkle with spices
Serve with rice and broccoli
Feel proud of your first ‘clean’ meal.
