Today I was wanting to make something good for lunch, so I opened my fridge and went to work. I had my chicken cooked for the week so I wanted to make a chicken dish. I looked around and saw the usual: onions, peppers, and when I saw the marinara sauce leftover from my last meal, my mind started racing. I wanted to make a chicken marinara without the oils or the cheeses that most restaurants serve with this dish. And off I went. I started by cutting up a fourth of an onion, one red pepper and one orange pepper. I cooked them in a pan with not tsp coconut oil until they were soft. Next I added my cooked chicken (cubed) and my marinara sauce. A sidenote about marinara sauce is that when you are looking for a good sauce be sure to read every label. Most sauces are full or genetically modified sugars and oils, all kinds of dyes and preservatives. You want a sauce that has tomatoes and spices. Marinara does not need 100 different ingredients. My favorite sauce I have found is the Classico brand of sauce.
It ahs bold flavors without added poisons. I added some veggies and let my mixture simmer for about ten minutes and served it over a large bed of spinach. It was filling and delicious. It is a quick and easy gourmet meal that could easily feed one of five. Enjoy!!
