Kitchen Detox

I don’t like it when people use the word “toxic” in referring to extremely hectic days. I don’t understand why they can’t just use words like busy or frantic, until today. Exhausting and frustrating are just not enough to describe the work day that was. It was so TOXIC that I so desperately needed to DETOX with some alone time one the road, running.

Successful with my run, I got home and craved for a nice, light dinner.  I also found a bit of respite in quietly and slowly assembling my meal.

My version of chicken fajitas

Hoping for a more positive tomorrow.

Chicken Fajitas

For the salsa:

  • 1 can corn kernels
  • 2 small red onions
  • 1/4 of a cabbage chopped
  • 2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • 1 tbsp. lemon or lime
  • salt and pepper
  • flat leaf parsley

Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Set aside.

For the chicken:

  • 1/4 kilo chicken breast fillet, diced
  • 1 can baked beans, drained
  • 1 tsp. turmeric
  • 1 tsp. cayenne

Marinate chicken with spices for a few minutes. On a hot non-stick pan, cook chicken for about 8 minutes. Add beans.
