It’s Friday — recipe day.  I have a one-pot meal for you today that even this incompetent cook made successfully.  However, this incompetent photographer didn’t get a picture!

Steamed Vegetable and Chicken Medley for Two


  • 1 cup thinly sliced carrots
  • 2 cup chopped kale with the stems removed
  • 1 cup cubed zucchini
  • 1 onion, slicked thick
  • sliced chicken breast, 3/4 thick


 Bring lightly salted water to a boil in a steamer with a tight fitting lid.  Add onions and cover and steam for three minutes.  Add carrots and then chicken and cook for at least two minutes.  Add kale and zucchini and steam for another three minutes. Season with sea salt or Himalayan pink salt to taste.

This is the original recipe, but I gave it a few extra minutes between the chicken and the kale and zucchini because I have a fear of underdone chicken.  The time also depends on how much chicken you add.  I used two medium chicken breast tenderloins.

You can skip the chicken and just have a vegetable dish.  You can also add fish, cut 1 inch thick.

Since the chicken has a glycemic number of zero and the vegetables are close to zero, this is a very low glycemic meal — so enjoy with a clear conscience!
