This is Lally's healthy eat. The garlic chicken is somewhere on the left. Squint!

A couple of weeks ago, my friend Lally shared a healthy eat. She subsequently shared the recipes from allrecipes.com and I decided to try one of them! I’ve tweaked some of the ingredients to suit what was available in my kitchen. I also try my best not to cook with flour and butter to help myself remain true to being a healthy eater.

This serves two.

Ingredients:
2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup of fresh mushrooms, sliced
2 tablespoons olive oil
6 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon dried thyme

Rub salt and pepper on the chicken and leave for 15 minutes.

Heat the oil in a pan over medium high heat and saute the chicken until it is nicely browned on one side. Add the garlic. Turn the chicken breasts and scatter the mushrooms over them. Continue frying, shaking the skillet and stirring the mushrooms. Cook for about 3 minutes, then add the vinegar and thyme. Cover tightly and simmer over medium low heat for 10 minutes, turning occasionally.

Transfer the chicken, mushrooms and sauce on to a plate and it’s all ready to eat! Bon appetit!

Thanks for sharing, Lally, and please continue to send us your healthy eats. By the way, looove the new red carpet look :-D.
