Critique: Steamed chicken, broccoli, carrots and mushrooms!

Great recipes are also simple recipes, at least in my book. In order to qualify they have to use only a few ingredients, be easy to make, yet be nutritious and economical. When you find one that fills that bill, please make it often and enjoy!


1chicken breast (112 grams), cut into small chunks
1 stalk (25 grams) of broccoli, sectioned
4-6 large fresh mushrooms (45 grams), whole
1/4 cup baby carrots (25 grams)
1/4 cup cauliflower Note: the veggies were purchased as a mix)
Salt and pepper to taste

Using a steamer, place the carrots in first and steam for about 2 minutes. Next, I added in the rest of the ingredients and steamed them for about 12 minutes.
After checking the veggies for doneness, I removed them to a serving dish and seasoned to taste. See! A very easy greasy sort of recipe! Serves 2.

STATS: The cost breakout for this meal was .90 for the chicken, $1.50 for the mushrooms, and $1.00 for the broccoli, carrot and cauliflower mix.. Therefore the cost per serving was $3.40 divided by 2 = $1.70. Not bad! The calories per serving were also pretty good at about 350.

And the taste? Well, the meat tasted like chicken with the veggies tasting like veggies! Duh. (Sorry, I get flippant from time to time). The taste was great! This meal scored a solid 8 on a scale of 10.
