IG Live Quarantine Cooking: Mac and Chicken

Ingredients for 6 servings

  • 6oz dry macaroni (I used chickpea macaroni which boosts protein)
  • spray olive oil
  • 1 1/4 lb chicken breast, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • pinch of sea salt & pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2/3 cup diced onion
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon garlic, fresh
  • 2 tablespoons The Fit Cook Land seasoning (or 1 1/2 tablespoons Italian seasoning)
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk (or lite coconut milk or skim milk)
  • 1 3/4 cups parmesan, grated
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot mixed with 2 tablespoons warm water
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes, drained
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • sea salt & pepper to taste


Step 1

Cook macaroni according to instructions given, then set aside. Using chickpea pasta added over 70g protein.

Step 2

Season chicken pieces with sea salt & pepper.

Step 3

Set a skillet on high heat, and once hot spray with oil then add the chicken. Cook for 3 – 5 minutes until the outside is seared, and then remove from the skillet.

Step 4

Reduce the heat in the skillet to medium, then add olive oil and garlic. Cook the onions until they turn brown and be careful not to burn the garlic, about 2 minutes.

Step 5

Add the seasonings and cook for 1 minute.

Step 6

Then pour in almond milk and add HALF of the cheese. Immediately begin to stir so the cheese doesn’t clump and melts evenly. NOTE: if the sauce is too thin, add 1 tablespoon of arrowroot mixed with water. Stir quickly so the starch doesn’t clump. The sauce should thicken.

Step 7

Fold in the tomato, pasta and chicken and reduce the heat to medium-low. Once mixed add raw spinach and continue gently folding until the spinach wilts. To help the spinach wilt, cover the skillet on LOW for 3 minutes.

Step 8

Season to taste with sea salt & pepper, then sprinkle remaining cheese on top. Cover and allow the heat to melt the cheese on top.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget.
