I have another amazing 3 ingredient chicken dinner for you all…
1- Chicken breast
2. Trader Joe’s Multigrain Blend with Vegetables
3. Sliced almonds
Look if there is one thing I look for in a meal it’s that it’s made from routine ingredients. I know that these might not be routine ingredients for YOU, but …they should be. Everyone should have a freezer full of individually frozen chicken breasts. Yes, packaging takes about 9 minutes after you unload the groceries, but it’s so worth it when you are cooking during the work week. Take the 9 minutes.
There are some ingredients from Trader Joe’s that I will always buy when I go in, and one of them is this multigrain blend. It’s great on the side of a pork tenderloin or grilled chicken, but it also comes in handy as a makeshift stir fry.
Another must buy at TJ’s is their slivered almonds. I use these as a base of homemade trail mix, to top my Chobani, and to throw into dishes to bring them up a level.
To make this meal, cut one boneless skinless chicken breast into small bite sized pieces and cook them in an olive-oil sprayed skillet with salt and pepper (I sometimes throw in a sprinkle of Montreal Spicy Chicken seasoning). At the same time, dump the frozen multigrain blend out on a microwave safe plate and heat for 2 minutes-stir- them heat for another minute. By that time the chicken bits should be cooked all the way through. Add the mix to the chicken, stir, and add in 1/4 cup of sliced almonds. Turn off the heat and serve.
The grains in this mix already have a nutty flavor to them, so the almonds really bring it to the next level. I can’t describe how good this is. On paper- it shouldn’t be great, but it is and also very filling. There isn’t a ton of sauce but it really doesn’t need it. Trust me.
