Through the lips but not on the hips!

I started my day at Barre Bee Fit where Michelle worked me to the core, no pun intended. BBF recently got  new resistance bands which are a great added bonus to the workout. This morning, Michelle had us loop the resistance band around our thighs while in a plank. 

Love it!
Breakfast: Ginger snap larabar w/ my coffee
Last night’s dinner:Chicken Cacciatore boneless, skinless chicken breasts, peppers, onions, and seasoningsSo easy & so healthy!
Brittany’s Cesar Salad with her homemade, non creamy dressing… SO good!!!!
Brittany and I wanted to cook dinner together and since she is getting married in less than 6 months she wanted to stick with something on the lighter side. We worked together to come up with this Chicken Cacciatore recipe that is the perfect healthy comfort meal. 
L & B’s Bridal Chicken Cacciatore

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 red pepper sliced
  • 1 yellow pepper sliced
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 can of organic fire roasted tomatoes
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 1/2 tsp of pepper
  • 1/2 cup of low sodium chicken stock
  • 1 tsp of garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp of dried oregano
  • Non stick cooking spray
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil

Spray a cast iron skillet with non-stick cooking spray and 1 tbsp of olive oil. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Brown chicken on medium to high heat for 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown on each side. Remove from pan and set aside. 
Add 1 tbsp of olive oil and add peppers and onions to skillet until tender. Add salt, pepper, tomatoes, chicken stock, garlic powder, and oregano. 

Place cooked veggies and chicken in a baking dish and bake at 400 degrees for 23 minutes. Check the half way through cooking, if the veggies look dry, add more chicken stock to make a “sauce like” consistency.

This meal was saucy, spicy, flavorful, and delicious. Pairs perfectly with some red wine :-)
Serve and enjoy!
What is your favorite healthy comfort meal?


  1. This is exactly what I try to make whenever I cook, but the chicken stock is a great addition!

    Also, if I'm craving carbs (like I often do), I'll throw it into a tortilla and grill it up like a quesadilla with a tiny amount of cheese.
