How to cook a healthy family dinner even your kids will love!

See how easy it is to cook a healthy family meal that won't break your food budget.   This is a healthy meal your family will actually enjoy and you won't spend a lot of time in the kitchen.

 

CREAMY CHICKEN OVER ANGEL HAIL PASTA

1-1/2 lbs. boneless chicken breast, cut into strips
2 Tbsp. flour
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. Italian seasoning, divided
1/2 tsp. salt, divided
2 Tbsp. canola oil
1 small onion, diced
1 large red pepper, diced
4 cloves garlic, diced
1-1/2 cups fat free chicken broth, divided
3 cups fresh spinach, chopped
1 (12 oz.) can evaporated milk
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese

1 Tbsp. cornstarch
1 Tbsp. chicken broth


Wash chicken and pat dry with paper towel. In a large reseable bag, combine flour, garlic powder, 1 tsp. Italian seasoning, and 1/4 tsp. salt. Coat chicken with the flour mixture. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add 1 Tbsp. canola oil and brown chicken on both sides, about 6 minutes total; transfer chicken to a plate.

Reduce heat to medium. Add 1 Tbsp. canola oil, onions, red pepper, garlic, and sauté until soft, about 8 minutes. Add 1/2 cup chicken broth to the skillet and bring to a light simmer. Add spinach and stir until spinach wilts. Add evaporated milk, 1 cup chicken broth, parmesan cheese, 1 tsp. Italian seasoning, 1/4 tsp. salt.  Stir through to combine.  Bring to a light simmer and add chicken.  Simmer for 15 minutes uncovered.

In a small cup, mix cornstarch with 1 Tbsp. chicken broth and stir well.  Add to the simmering sauce to thicken.  


DID YOU KNOW?   That 1/4 lb  raw red pepper provides more than twice the recommended daily amount of vitamin C.
