You know that whole “everything but the kitchen sink” line that cooks/chefs use when they put a little bit of everything into a dish? Well, this recipe could very well be one of those. One day, burned out with my usual chicken and veggies routine, I decided to mix things up. I grabbed a jar of Trader Joe’s Roasted Red Pepper & Artichoke Tapenade (which I had never tried before but fell in love with!), some veggies, chicken and giant white beans and created this! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
1lb organic chicken
1 jar Trader Joe’s Roasted Red Pepper & Artichoke Tapenade
1 jar giant white beans (also at TJ’s in a tomato sauce, or grab a container at any olive bar)
1/2 package frozen artichoke hearts
1 c organic, fresh spinach
1 package of organic stir-fry veggies (I get them fresh from TJ’s, but frozen will work as well)
In a separate bowl, pour tapenade over chicken. Let sit in fridge for 30 min-1 hour. Then, place chicken and tapenade in skillet and cook on medium high heat. In separate skillet, saute veggies (not avocado) and white beans. Once chicken is fully cooked through, cut up into bite size pieces. Pour veggie and bean mix in with the chicken, cook on low until all mixed together. Voila! Makes 4 servings. Top with sliced avocado for an added creamy kick. Lightly season with sea salt.
