Here is a great idea for a healthy meal that your whole family will enjoy!


2 (8-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided

2 broccoli stems

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

3 cups thinly sliced Brussels sprouts (from 12 medium)

2 celery stalks, thinly sliced

1/4 cup toasted walnuts or pecans

1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, coarsely chopped



Place chicken and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a small saucepan and cover with water; bring to a boil. Immediately remove from heat, cover, and let stand 15 minutes. Drain chicken and run under cold water. Cool completely; set aside. Using 2 forks, shred into bite-size pieces; reserve.

Meanwhile, use a vegetable peeler to remove outer layer of broccoli stems; discard. Continue peeling stems into long strips. In a large bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Add broccoli strips, Brussels sprouts, celery, nuts, parsley, and reserved chicken to bowl with dressing; toss. Divide among 4 shallow bowls.
