Looking for an engaging way to get employees interested in healthy eating? Try a cooking demo!

Posted on May 1, 2013 by Commonhealth Nutrition

Commonhealth Nutrition owner/co-founder, Val, setting up a healthy meal cooking demonstration at the Federal Building in Richmond on 4/18/13.

This cooking demo for employees at the Federal Building in downtown Richmond was a huge success.

If you’re wondering what’s cookin’,  here’s the recipe…

· 1 ¾ to 2 lbs. chicken breasts, trimmed of fat and cut into ½ inch strips

· Couple of splashes of reduced- sodium soy sauce during cooking

· 1 green, 1 red and 1 yellow bell pepper, sliced into ¼ inch strips

· 1 medium onion, sliced into ¼ inch rings

· Fixings of choice: non-fat greek yogurt, reduced fat cheese, guacamole, and/or salsa

1. In a large (1-gallon) zip lock bag, combine orange juice, olive oil, lime juice, lime zest, brown sugar, oregano, chili powder and garlic. Add chicken, seal bag and marinate in refrigerator. For maximum flavor, it’s recommended that you marinate for 4+ hours.

2. When ready to cook, heat a large grill pan on medium-high heat. Drizzle ~ 1 tablespoon olive oil in pan, add bell peppers and onion slices and cook until browned, about 6 minutes. Add a splash of reduced – sodium soy sauce during cooking. Remove from pan and keep warm.

3. Wipe grill with paper towel, add another drizzle of oil and carefully add chicken pieces (not the marinade) in a single layer. As the chicken cooks, add two splashes of reduced- sodium soy sauce. Cook chicken 7-8 minutes or until browned and cooked through, turning once. Add onions and bell peppers back to the pan. Serve on warm flour tortillas with all the fixings.
