The sweet and sour taste of kiwi fruit livens up skinless chicken breast in our Health-e-Recipe for Sautéed Chicken and Kiwi over Wild Rice. Lime basil and lemon peel make this recipe even more tantalizing.
Kiwi may look odd with its fuzzy, green skin, but the bright green fruit inside is loaded with vitamins C and K, along with lutein and chlorophyll (responsible for its green color and also found in spinach) plus beta-carotene. Kiwis are also a good source of fiber and potassium. A crunchy contrast comes from the celery and carrots, also high in the antioxidant beta-carotene.
Lime basil (or regular fresh basil) and a little grated lemon zest – the outer bright yellow layer of the peel – round out the flavor that soaks into the whole-grain wild rice and the chicken. By emphasizing good taste, this dish satisfies you while keeping portions of animal protein reasonable for good health and cancer prevention.
