STEWED CHICKEN WITH FRESH VEGGIES-A Healthy fatfree Dinner!

I recently read somewhere-"The birth of my blog has been the death of my figure"!,how true is it?,I mean you cook and bake and...taste and taste...(just checking the salt mind you!) and before you even realize it, somewhere around 500 calories are consumed!!, I am on a health spree these days, go for an hours walk and try and eat as healthy as I possibly can.So for today's dinner I made this really fresh, comforting,easy and almost fat free stewed chicken with a zesty mustard sauce, note there is not a drop of oil or butter in the recipe, the chicken and vegetables cook in their own flavorful juices, hmmm no butter chicken for a few weeks I think:(


Here's the recipe...



  • Fresh chicken -1

  • Assorted fresh veggies-250 gms (I used beans, broccoli,carrots,peas,cauliflower..)

  • Mustard powder-1 tsp

  • Milk-1 tbsp

  • Toasted bread-acc. to preference

  • Fresh herbs-acc. to preference

  • Seasoning- salt and fresh black pepper


Method-Combine milk and mustard powder and leave to "mature" for about half an hour.Heat about 2 cups water in a heavy bottom pan, add cleaned chicken once the water reaches a boil.Chop veggies lengthwise add to the boiling chicken, cook for 15-20 mnutes till done and water dries up, add herbs and seasoning of choice.Top with mustard sauce and serve with toasted bread preferably wholewheat(notice it is not buttered), heyyy! indulge, it's fat free and really healthy!!
