Nutrition: Yummy, freezable Organic Chicken Breast Recipe

What you will need: (you can purchase all items at Costco or Trader Joes)

1 package organic, boneless skinless chicken breast
Marinade: I like to use jalepeno mustard and rosemary; you can use any low sugar marinade that you like, and you can water it down with organic chicken broth.

Filet the chicken breasts
Cover and Marinate4 to 5 hours or overnight.
Cook, covered in 350 degree oven for 40 minutes.
Put serving sizes of chicken in Ziploc Freezer bags and store in freezer and fridge.
I like to make mini frozen meals with the chicken; take 1/2 cup cooked brown rice or whole wheat pasta and steamed veggies of your choices, place sliced chicken on top with 1/4 cup of the cooking sauce, and freeze. When you are ready to eat cook on medium power for approx. 4 minutes. This is great when I come home from work starving and wanting a comforting meal in a few minutes. You can also skip the starch and make it low carb with just the meat and veggies and sauce. Yum Yum!
