Braised Chicken Breast and Sauteed Bean Sprouts

It was a lazy yet healthy dinner we had last night. Since I've been pushing my husband for few days diet before EID (yes, very long holidays for us here in Middle East), he suggested to have sauteed bean sprouts for our last night's dinner. It is really a great recipe - easy to cook, healthy and affordable. However, because we were on a "No Rice Diet", my husband asked for a little favor. He wanted the sauteed bean sprouts with tofu, plus, just any meat for the main course. Well, OK then. I have chicken breast in my fridge and the easiest way to cook it is to have it braised. DONE, we had a our food within 30 minutes!
