This is a quick and easy version of a super satisfying “comfort food” that won't sacrifice your Advocare healthy eating plan.

PAM Olive Oil Spray

1 tablespoon Olive Oil

1 pound lean ground chicken

1 large sweet onion

3 tablespoons minced garlic

1 red pepper, cut in approx 1/2″ pieces

1 yellow or orange pepper, cut in approx 1/2″ pieces

1 medium eggplant, peeled, and cut in 1/2″ pieces

1 zucchini, quartered and sliced

1 summer squash, quartered and sliced

12 oz. white mushrooms, sliced

1 large can tomato puree

salt, pepper

3 tablespoons dried basil, crushed

garlic powder

4 packets Splenda

Use large nonstick pan, spray well with PAM.  Add minced garlic and onion.  After 3 minutes add the peppers, olive oil, stir frequently.  After 3 minutes add the eggplant.  Cook for 5 minutes then add the mushrooms, zucchini, and squash.  Cook for 5 minutes

In separate pan, spray PAM.  Add the ground chicken and season with salt, garlic powder and pepper.  Cook until done.  Add the chicken to the veggies, then the tomato puree.

Add the Splenda, salt, pepper, basil, and very generous amounts of garlic powder.  Mix well and bring to boil.  Reduce heat and cook on low for 15 minutes (or more).

Good by itself, or you can serve with brown rice.  This reheats very well.

Serves 4.

    Please investigate Splenda. It’s just as damaging as other neurotoxin artificial sweeteners! Stevia is a much healthier choice.

      @ Mary,
      Are you making this with fresh tomatoes? Canned tomatoes can have alot of sodium and sugar added.

    I can not find ground chicken. Do you think chicken breast cut into to small pieces would be ok.

      @ Teresa,
      You can use ground turkey or cut a grilled chicken breast into the ratatouille.

    Are mushrooms okay? I read in one plan to avoid them since they are a mold?

    Do you have to use the splenda??? I thought you can’t use sugar?

      You do not have to use it. Sugar is out. Very limited splenda is fine.

      @Kelly Yes, but be sure there is no added sugar and that the sodium content is low.

    Is this recipe for one person or more than one serving? Also, this works for the 10-day cleanse or the latter part of the program? Thanks 🙂

    The list of ingredients doesn’t appear to include tomatoes or tomato puree. Where does the tomato puree come from and how much should be used in this recipe?

      Sorry Josh – recipe is updated. I buy the tomato puree that has the lowest sodium and carb count.
