CHICKEN WITH BROCCOLI

Tomatoes, like all red vegetables, support the Heart function. When paired with broccoli rabe, a bitter food, your heart is given an extra boost. Broccoli rabe also benefits your Liver. The mushrooms add flavor and dimension to this dish while providing many cleansing properties. Chicken boosts your Kidney yang energy, but without the chicken, this recipe would be just as delicious.
