This easy garlic chicken recipe with broccoli and mushrooms is one to add to your recipe collection. It's on the table in less than 20 minutes!

Boneless, skinless chicken breast is cut into bite-sized pieces before being pan-cooked in a little olive oil with garlic. (If you're a garlic lover, add more garlic!) Broccoli florets and mushrooms are added and cooked until crisp-tender. Season with a pinch of sea salt and the chicken dish is ready to be served. You could add red pepper, carrots, asparagus or your favorite vegetables to this recipe, too. 

If you're watching your carbs, serve the juicy chicken and vegetables for dinner or lunch as-in in a bowl. If you're not on a low-carb diet, you could serve it over brown rice or quinoa. This is a great meal-prep recipe, too.
