What started off as a healthy year ended up as a fatty 2008. And so we start again this year! Hopefully we won't have any moves or anything like that to throw us off.

I've been craving veggies lately and broccoli is always my favorite. I wanted to share with you the wonderful-ness of bottled Italian dressing. I don't care for it on salads - but it is great for seasoning and marinating. Here are the steps for my healthy Italian-style stir fry.


Chicken breasts, cut into bite size pieces
Italian dressing
Broccoli florets (I prefer fresh, but frozen will work)
Seasonings (Salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder)
Angel hair pasta (I use whole wheat)


Prepare pasta according to package directions. :) Toss lightly with EVOO, cover, and set aside.

Marinate the chicken for at least 30 minutes in Italian dressing. Saute in skillet (with dressing) until cooked through.

Turn heat to low and add broccoli. Season as desired and toss with chicken. Let it steam, covered, on low heat for 3-5 minutes, until broccoli is as tender as you like it.

Serve chicken and broccoli over the pasta. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese if desired.
