Chicken has really been boring the life out of me lately... I find myself eating more shrimp, fish, and other forms of protein. But, at the end of the day, organic chicken is easy and a great source of protein. Last night, I decided to wing it and put together a sauce that I thought might work - and did!
For the chicken, need:
- 1 Tbs or so of Organic Mayo
- 2 Tbs or so of Whole Grain Mustard
- 1 tbs or so of Honey
- Just mix together in a bowl
- Cover the organic chicken tenderloins with the sauce and put on a parchment-lined baking sheet
What about the asparagus, parsnips, & carrots?
Asparagus: Drizzle with extra virgin and season with salt/pepper
Carrots/Parsnips: Toss with extra virgin and season with salt/pepper & rosemary
Put in a 425 degree oven for 15-17 minutes and all of it will be done.
Side note: I like the carrots and parsnips a little more crunchy - so I let them stay in for another 5 while I covered the chicken and asparagus on my plate to keep them warm. You could also start cooking them first, but, I didn't have time for that last night.
The sauce came out great! I think it would be even better on wings... makes sense seeing that it IS a honey-mustard sauce.
The entire meal delivers tons of protein, cancer-fighting antioxidants, and lots of vitamins!
Here's the breakdown:
Parsnips: Folate, Potassium, Vitamins C & E
Asparagus: Vitamins K, A, B1 & C, folate and has anti-oxidant & anti-inflammatory properties
Carrots: A, K, & Fiber
Organic Chicken: Protein, B3, B6, Selenium
Happy Tuesday! xo
