Southern Zesty Chicken with Black-Eyed Peas

Bring some healthy soul food to your table with this delicious entree. Featuring lean chicken and black-eyed peas, this dish is full of fiber and protein. Hot sauce and mustard seed add zesty spice to this southern staple. And some studies show that a diet rich in whole grains, like the brown rice here, and legumes help reduce your risk of colorectal and other cancers


1 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp. celery salt
1/4 tsp. mustard seed
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. ginger
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, 1 lb. total (preferably organic free-range chicken)
2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil, divided
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 large onion, chopped
1 tsp. hot sauce
1 cup brown basmati rice, cooked per package directions
1 (15 oz.) can unsalted black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup green onions, sliced

(As always, choose organic content as much as possible for the healthiest recipe.)


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. In a small bowl, combine paprika, red pepper, celery salt, mustard seed, cinnamon and ginger. Sprinkle the spice rub over chicken.

3. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in large ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add chicken to skillet and cook 2 minutes on each side. Place skillet in oven and bake for 10-15 minutes or until chicken is cooked. Remove from oven, cover and keep warm.

3. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add garlic and onion and sautŽ 3 minutes. Stir in hot sauce, cooked rice and black-eyed peas. Cook approximately 3 minutes, stirring often until thoroughly heated.
