Tropical Chicken Medley

This recipe is from the new Medifast Lean and Green Meal Cookbook for sale on Medifast's website. There are a lot of great recipes in this book and I highly recommend it even if you aren't on the plan. I just wish it had more recipes in the book. This recipe is very easy to make and most of the ingredients were already in my fridge. The end result of the dish had a mild lime flavor mixed with the slight crunchiness of the broccoli and peppers. Very tasty! 

Tropical Chicken Medley
Medifast Lean and Green Meal Cookbook

8 oz raw, boneless, skinless chicken strips ~ should yield 6 oz cooked (1 Leaner Lean)
1/2 cup raw broccoli, chopped (1 Green)
1/2 cup red bell pepper, chopped (1 Green)
1/2 cup yellow bell pepper, chopped (1 Green)
2 tbsp Newman's Own Lighten Up Light Lime Vinaigrette (1 Healthy Fat)
1/2 tsp onion powder (1 Condiment)
1/4 tsp garlic powder (1/2 Condiment)
1/2 tsp Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb Seasoning Blend (1 Condiment)
Non-stick Cooking Spray

Coat chicken strips with vinaigrette. Sprinkle Mrs. Dash seasoning, onion powder, and garlic powder on chicken strips. Let marinate for at least 1 to 2 hours.
Spray a pan with nonstick cooking spray for 5 to 10 seconds; saute peppers and broccoli until al dente (tender-crisp). While cooking peppers, frequently add a little water so they do not burn. Set aside. Add chicken to pan and cook until no longer pink. When chicken is done, combine with peppers and broccoli and mix well.

1 Serving with 1 Leaner Lean, 3 Greens, 2.5 Condiments and 1 Healthy Fat per Serving
