During finals week at school, it seems like there’s never enough time to get everything done, especially when it comes to cooking healthy meals. This dinner only takes 15 minutes minutes and is a delicious, healthy meal that better yet, always yields lots of leftovers for lunch the next day!
First, I found the asparagus risotto in the frozen section at Trader Joe’s. It’s one of my absolute favorite sides when I’m craving something really hearty and satisfying, and at only $2.99 it tastes so decadent. On average, one bag will yield about three servings (you don’t need much because it’s so rich!), and takes about 10 minutes to cook on your stovetop.
While the risotto is heating up, I throw one package of boneless, skinless chicken breast tenders into a sautee pan with two tablespoons of olive oil and two garlic cloves, finely chopping. As the chicken is cooking, I add about 1-2 tablespoons of oregano and the juice of two lemons, leaving about 3 tablespoons of lemon juice to add to the risotto (I love a lot of lemon, but feel free to use just one instead!).
Plate and serve with a simple salad and a lemon wedge for garnish, and you have a quick, delicious meal ready in a snap!
