Girl Talk Goes Virtual

Ages 8 to 13 is such a special time for young girls. It’s a season full of new adventures and growth, but some big changes happen as well. If you are a guardian of a girl in her early teens, you may be ready to discuss puberty. While the topic may initially seem challenging, we are here to help! Forrest General Hospital’s Spirit of Women has developed a short “Girl Talk” video that will discuss important topics such as puberty, hormonal changes, menstrual cycles, and more.

One Pot Chicken Fajita Whole Wheat Pasta Recipe

Nutrition Facts: Calories: 466, Total Fat: 10g, Saturated Fat: 2g, Trans Fat: 0g, Unsaturated Fat: 7g, Cholesterol: 46mg,
Sodium: 551mg, Carbohydrates: 68g, Fiber: 10g, Sugar: 13g, Protein: 29g
For the skillet:
2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into chunks
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 medium red onion, sliced
1 medium red bell pepper, sliced
1 medium yellow bell pepper, sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoons cumin
3/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or to taste)
1 (14.5 ounces) can diced fire-roasted tomatoes
1 3/4 cups low sodium vegetable or chicken broth
8 ounces uncooked whole-wheat fusilli pasta*
1/2 cup unsweetened plain almond milk (or milk of choice)
Juice of 1/2 a lime
For garnish:
Chopped fresh cilantro
Thinly sliced green onions


Season the chicken pieces with some salt and pepper. Set a large nonstick skillet (that has a lid) over medium heat. Add in 1 tablespoon of olive oil. When hot, add the chicken to the pan. Toss to coat and cook for about 5 to 7 minutes, until cooked through and starting to brown. With a slotted spoon, remove the chicken pieces from the pan to a medium bowl and set aside. Set the skillet back over medium heat and add in the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. When hot, add in the onion, peppers and jalapeno. Cook for about 5 to 7 minutes, until tender. Stir in the garlic, cumin, paprika, salt and cayenne and cook for about 30 seconds, until fragrant. Remove the veggies from the pan to the bowl with the chicken and set aside. Add the tomatoes, broth and pasta to the skillet. Bring the liquid just to a boil, then cover, reduce the heat and simmer fairly vigorously for about 11 to 14 minutes, stirring occasionally (and more frequently toward the end of the cooking time), or until the pasta is tender and the liquid is absorbed. Turn off the heat. Stir in the milk, lime juice and the chicken/veggies. Allow the pasta to rest for about 5 minutes before serving. Taste and season with additional salt/cayenne as needed. Garnish with the cilantro and green onions.
