This is pretty darn healthy, and simple! I just threw this on my pan and it tasted surprisingly tasty, and pink!

Directions

  • Mix the ginger into the diced chicken until thoroughly combined; set aside. Pour half of the liquid from the can of beets into a large skillet. Bring to a boil over high heat, then stir in the chicken. Cook and stir until the liquid evaporates, about 5 minutes. Pour the beets and the remaining liquid into the pan along with the mushrooms and onion. Continue cooking and stirring until the liquid has evaporated once again, about 5 minutes more.

We love beets and at only 167 calories per serving I couldn't pass this up. I added garlic salt and pepper but it still could have used some more flavor. Also the presentation is sort of strange. Everything is pink that's for sure. And since the chicken is cut up into pieces I actually couldn't tell the difference between the chicken and the mushrooms on my plate. Next time I make this (and I will make it again for sure) I'll leave the chicken breasts whole and saute the chicken mushrooms and onions with the spices before adding the beets and maybe skip the juice. Overall tasty recipe! Four stars for creativeness and taste three stars for presentation. Read More

This was an awesome recipe. I also didn't cut the chicken up small. I cut the chicken in chunks and added the beets last so the entire dish did not go pink. For more flavor I added ginger dill basil a bit of coconut powder and a can of cream of mushroom soup for a more saucier dish (to serve with rice). It was a big hit. Read More

Quite tasty but needed a little more kick. I added 2 tbsp. of minced garlic and some black pepper. I also threw in some extra veggies (carrots snow peas). Read More

I would give this a 3.5 if I could. It is very healthy but needs more flavor. I have made this twice but haven't quite decided the flavor it needs-I like beets so I still enjoyed it and so did the rest of the family-I added garlic salt and pepper. Read More
