Chicken Piccata with steamed Asparagus

There is a pattern here, I found this recipe in a Fat Burning Food Guide book from Chalean Extreme workout program. This recipe was also amazing.

4 oz. boneless chicken breat, butterflied
1/4 cup white wine
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp capers

12 asparagus spears, steamed
Mrs. Dash Italian seasoning to taste
Salt and Pepper to taste

Season chicken breast with Mrs. Dash. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat and add olive oil. Cook chicken breast for about 2 to 3 minutes on each side, until golder brown. Then add white wine, lemon juice, and capers and simmer until chicken is cooked through. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve with asparagus spears.

Home Fries (Eat Clean Diet recipe)

This was one of the first recipes I had to make cause it was like making fried potatoes (in which I can't seem to make). This recipe is a definite winner.

Home Fries

3 potatoes, boiled till soft but firm, and sliced
1 green bell pepper, sliced
1 cooking onion, sliced thinly
2 tbsp olive oil, seperated
2 tsp mustard seeds
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.

I started with putting the potatoes in the microwave in fold over sandwich baggies for 3 minutes. Let them cool then slice.
Heat 1 tbsp oil over medium heat in a large skillet.
Cook onions for 1-2 minutes. Add green peppers and continue to cook, stirring for about 4 minutes. Set aside in a bowl.
Add the rest of the oil to the skillet. Allow to heat. Set potato slices in single layer. Let brown, then flip. Brown the potatoes for 2 minutes, then add onions and peppers. Stir together. Add mustard seeds, salt and pepper, and serve.

One skillet meal (ground hamburger/turkey/bison)

So it has been a super long time since I have gotten on here to post a recipe. I have been cooking but it has been a little different. We started eating a Clean Diet (recently) and trying to find recipes is a little harder.

Tonights menu was totally just thrown together. I had 1 lb. of ground bison in the fridge and had to come up with something; so I did.

Ingredients included:
2 tbsp olive oil
1 lb. ground bison
1 bell pepper; diced
1 onion; diced
2 cloves garlic; minced
2 can diced tomatoes with chilies
2 cups cooked brown rice

I first started with olive oil and saute garlic for about 2 minutes on med. heat. Add your ground bison, turkey or even hamburger. Once that is almost cooked all the way thru, add chopped bell peppers and onions. Cook till those are tender and then add your 2 cans of chopped tomatoes with chilies. The tomatoes and chilies add the spice. Then you will add the cooked rice, stir and heat thru for about 5 minutes. Then pepper and salt to taste.

I thought this was really good. Reminded me of like unstuffed peppers or like dirty rice. I am so glad there were left overs so I can have it for lunch tomorrow.

More recipes to come....I promise :)
