Happy New Year!!

2017 is going to be a fabulous year… I can just feel it.

As promised, while I was throwing holiday cookie recipes at you left and right, this January I have lots of light low carb dinners to share with you.


Now is the time for us to clean up our act and our eating habits.

I have a few unwanted holiday pounds to shed over the next couple months and was hoping you would take the journey with me.

Will you? Pretty please?

I know we can do this! And we can even enjoy our meals while we do it.

The worst thing in the whole wide world is to make a commitment to eat healthy, then find yourself chewing on celery sticks for days on end, because we don’t know what else to make and eat.

Let’s be honest… The celery stick chewing lasts for about 15 minutes before we starting rummaging through the pantry for a that last box of crackers we forgot to throw out.

No more.

How to Make Low Carb Market Chicken Skillet #healthy

Today we’re starting with a bold colorful dinner idea I call my Low Carb Market Chicken Skillet. It’s a low fat, low carb, veggie-heavy dish that takes only minutes to make.

I seared small chicken pieces in a large skillet along with fennel, bell pepper, zucchini, kale, tomatoes, and corn. Then seasoned it with garlic, herbs, and golden balsamic vinegar.

The zesty garlic and herbs, and bit of tang from the vinegar, helps showcase the fresh produce and enhance its appeal.

You can easily remove the corn from this Low Carb Market Chicken Skillet recipe to make it a paleo recipe. You can also substitute any vegetable you like!

Just make sure to lightly cook all the veggies, so they are crisp and sweet, not overcooked and mushy.

Low Carb Market Chicken Skillet is a great way to kick off a year of good choices in 2017!

    Yummmmmy! I can’t wait to try this skillet! I love ‘one pan wonders’ — and a low carb one, too! I started the Alternate Day Fasting “diet” this week — and on my ‘feast’ days, I’m eating low carb. You’re line up is making this seem MUCH easier! Thanks, Sommer!

    I made this last night and it is delicious!! I omitted the orange pepper, because it doesn’t agree with me but added carrot.  And I only used 1/2 the Italian seasoning, but added a bunch of fresh basil at the end. Any combination of vegetables will work. This is going to be one of my go to favorites!
