Creamy Peppered Chicken

1 container of sour cream, reduced fat or fat free
4 chicken breasts, seasoned per your preference.

Brown the chicken in an electric skillet. I just use PAM spray or a bit of organic butter. When the chicken is mostly cooked add sour cream and stir until you have a gravy.

Serve with potatoes, noodles or rice. Delicious and done in minutes.

  • 3 cloves of fresh garlic, peeled. minced, diced, pressed, however you like. toss on top of beans.
  • add olive oil. mix well so that the olive oil and garlic fully cover the garbanzo beans. add a little sea salt or not. serve.

these are ridiculously simple, and are always gone at parties and potlucks. I never have leftovers.

you can also add these to steamed vegetable bowls.

oh, forgot to add... you can also "CRUSH" the chopped/minced garlic before adding to the garbanzo beans and before olive oil. crushing the garlic makes it absolutely divine!

just lay the garlic on a tray and get a rolling pin, add the garbanzo beans, olive oil, and salt if you like. mix. then transfer to serving bowl.

it's a party favorite! ;)

Savory Kale

  • In a large frying pan or skillet, lightly sauté (in either water or olive oil) sliced/diced onions (maybe a quarter cup, or a very small handful) until translucent.
  • Add 1 to 3 minced/diced or pressed garlic cloves and sauté an additional minute.
  • Add as much freshly washed and chopped kale that can fit in the pan, pile it on high! It will shrink down (I remove the tough center & bottom from kale leaves, then I roll them up and cut them into thin slices. But do it however you like!) and sauté down until softly wilted.

Serve alone and garnish with salt & pepper, kimchi, red chile flake, or any other condiment you like. I like my kale cooked and savory.

You can also add those garlic garbanzo beans to this!
