  • 4 medium carrot
  • 4 cup broccoli, florets
  • 2 pound chicken breast
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil

For the Herb Sauce

  • 2 1/2 teaspoon rosemary, fresh

  • 2 tablespoons mint, fresh
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper, ground

  • 1-2 lemons juice and zest

Serve With

  • 2 cup pineapple

  • Cut chicken into bite size pieces. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high. Add the olive oil, then the chicken and sauté until golden brown.
  • Add broccoli and carrots, continuing to sauté until veggies are crisp-tender and chicken is cooked through. (You may add a splash of water and cover the pan to help the veggies tenderize.)
