Check it out....I'm posting Salubrious Sunday actually ON a Sunday!
I know...this is a first, huh!
Well, I have a slight change in my agenda. You see, with the fall weather in the near future (hopefully, although with this weeks forecast of over 100', it's looking doubtful) and the need for those warm, wonderful comfort foods, I needed to switch things around a little. Comfort foods will have to be my weekend meals (you just can't start making lasagna or chicken & dumplings at 7pm, right?) and I'll have to make a salubrious meal during the week.
Thus giving me the opportunity to post Salubrious Sunday...on Sunday.
This dish is perfect for during the week. It's simple, it's quick and it's tasty. Another Cooking Light Chicken recipe that I've made several times. A great go-to recipe that doesn't require any "unusual" ingredients.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme (I used basil)
8 oz sliced mushrooms
3/4 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces (I used 2 chicken breasts and didn't weigh them)
1/2 cup dry white wine (I've used just chicken broth when I was out)
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 cup uncooked instant rice
1 cup chicken broth, fat-free, less-sodium
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute the onion, thyme, and mushroom until onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Towards the end, add the garlic.
Toss in your chunks of chicken and saute until chicken is lightly browned...should take a few minutes...
Pour the wine in. Season with salt and pepper and cook until the liquid has almost evaporated...about 3 minutes.
Stir in the rice and broth....
Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat and simmer for about 5 minutes or until the liquid has been absorbed. Stir in the cheese and chopped parsley......
And serve! (yields 4 servings) Maybe with a nice side of green beans or asparagus...or broccoli. mmmm

Basically its the same recipe as a Melon Berry Twist only I used peaches and bananas with a shot or so of coconut rum. Good stuff!!
