Ground Chicken Italiano

Lately I've had a lot of people asking me: what the heck do you eat? Mostly in relation to my eating paleo, but also some on how I eat to lose weight. I've shared the basics: meat and veggies, eggs, healthy fats, some fruit and nuts, a few seeds and a little bit of dairy (dairy is not strict paleo)...but that is sort of vague, they want to know more. 

In an attempt to better answer I've decided I'm going to try and share a recipe once a week here and also share more photos of my meals on instagram. You can find my instagram link in the sidebar if you're interested in my daily meals.

Today, a recipe! I threw this together the other night and it turned out so good I had to share.

Ground Chicken Italiano
Olive oil for pan
1 lb lean ground chicken
1 small yellow squash
2 small zucchini
1 small to medium sweet Vidalia onion
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 can stewed tomatoes (read your labels, the only brand I've found so far that is hfcs-free is Hunt's)

Drizzle a skillet heated to medium heat with olive oil and add ground chicken. Add seasonings and cook until done. While that is cooking chop squash, zucchini, and onion and add to the chicken when it is fully cooked. Cook those until tender. Add the can of stewed tomatoes at the end and cook just a few minutes until heated. 


If I was making this for my whole family I would double it. Hubby and I were home alone (can you believe it?!) Sunday night and for 2 people as a one dish meal (with a little left over) this was perfect.

Big thanks to my facebook friends for helping me name this. I always just throw things together and never know what to call them!

Let me know if you try it.
