Prep Tips

Many recipes call for using thin chicken breasts. Most supermarkets sell packages of these. I bought mine at Trader Joe’s. Or make your own. To do this, pound chicken to ¼” thickness between 2 sheets of plastic wrap.

Serving Tips

Serve this chicken over zoodles or steamed broccoli slaw. You can steam either of them in the microwave for about 2 minutes. It would also be fantastic served over my recipe for Super Healthy, Garlic Sautéed Spinach   Or, serve over whole-grain pasta.
