Easy-NatureRaisedFarms® Chicken With Tomatoes and Mangoes @RunninSrilankan

Seasonal colds and coughs are bad – but, what seem to hit worse (at least in our household) are those colds and coughs that creep in while we happen to be stressed.

Last weekend, my daughter was super stressed. She was stressed about the unknown – you see, last weekend she started training at her very first job (making me realize that she is growing up faster than I ever expected). She was stressed before her first day (even though she found out later, that it would be a walk in the park, and that she would come to like what she did and she would like her co-workers); but, that moment of stress had left her susceptible, and, come Monday, she could barely talk without coughing.


At times like these, I turn to the healing and comforting powers of foods, first. Most times, when either of us catch a cold or cough or both, I make sure I have plenty of broccoli sautéed with onions, garlic, ginger and turmeric root on our plates along with either some chicken soup or some sort of jazzed up chicken dish.

Easy Nature Raised Farms® Chicken with Mushrooms and Mangoes-@RunninSrilankan

This past week, I headed to Sam’s Club to buy a 4 lb bag of NatureRaised Farms® Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast Portions from the freezer section as I knew a lot of chicken was going to be consumed in Operation-Cough-Extermination! I picked NatureRaised Farms® Chicken as they are 100% natural* and free of antibiotics, with no added hormones or steroids**.

NatureRaised Farms depends on independent family farmers to raise their all-natural* chickens. These chickens are raised in modern, open barns with great ventilation and a safe place to go when there is inclement weather, they are fed a 100% vegetarian diet, and are bred through natural selection vs genetic modification. NatureRaised Farms chicken has been certified either by USDA Agriculture Marketing Service, or, by the Global Animal Partnership.


I decided to pair up chicken with mangoes and tomatoes (for an extra boost of vitamin C) in this super simple and easy dish. All you need is one pan and one cutting board, which means more time to “oooh” and “aaaah” over each forkful of this tender chicken. There is no butter used, nor is there any cream – just mango, tomato, chicken, mushrooms, onions and good ol’ garlic! This chicken goes from cutting board to dinner plate in less than 40 minutes and is a must try – what do you say?
