Fresh vegetables and herbs wed blissfully to tender chicken breasts in
a dish that will please nearly everyone. Colorful, delicious, and packed with
Cook chicken in hot oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat 4 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove chicken from skillet.
Add mushrooms and bell pepper to skillet; sauté 3 minutes. Add tomato, garlic, and salt; return chicken to skillet. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Stir in basil, oregano, and remaining 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.

For your gourmet salad greens mix in this recipe, you might consider Mesclun. It's
a combination of young greens such as arugla, dandelion, frisee, mizuna, oak leaf,
mache, radicchio and sorrel.|
Tenderloin steak may be substituted for top sirloin.
Season steak with salt, as desired. Drizzle with lemon juice. Carve steak crosswise into thin slices.

For even more Italian flavor, marinate steaks in Italian dressing for
20 minutes before coating with seasonings.
And for more variety and color, stir-fry other low carb vegetables like eggplant and yellow squash with the zucchini.
Add zucchini; cook and stir 3 minutes. Add tomatoes; cook and stir 1 minute. Remove vegetables to platter; sprinkle with cheese and keep warm.
Increase heat to medium-high. Place 2 steaks in same skillet; cook 3 to 4 minutes, turning once. Repeat with remaining 2 steaks.
Season steaks with salt if desired, serve with warm vegetables.

One small green apple, chopped (about 3/4 cup raw volume chopped)
nets approximately 11 grams carbohydrate after fiber. This means that apples,
while usually too high in carbs to eat as regular snacks can still be terrific
to use in recipes. This cheesecake uses DaVinci's newly debuted Sugar Free
Green Apple Syrup.
