  • 2-3 chicken breasts (skinless, boneless)
  • 2 small apples, cored and sliced (leave peels on)
  • 1 cup celery, sliced in 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 cup onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup black beans, rinsed (look for black soybeans)
  • 2 Tbsp. whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups chicken or vegetable broth (may also use miso broth)
  • 2 sweet potatoes, cooked, peeled and sliced into large chunks (cook in microwave or use left over from previous day or may use canned yams)
  • 10-15 prunes, pitted (cherry essense flavor is very nice)
  • parsley for garnish


  • Spray frying pan with non-stick cooking spray or use a small amount of olive oil.
  • Brown chicken well on both sides. Remove from pan.
  • Arrange apples, celery, onions, beans, in crock-pot. Sprinkle with flour. Pour broth over vegetables. Place browned chicken pieces over veggies. (I cut them into thick slices). Place sweet potatoes and prunes over chicken pieces.
  • Cover crockpot, cook on high for 4-5 hours.

Serve over whole wheat cous-cous (follow directions on the box - this takes about 5 minutes to prepare). Sprinkle with chopped parsley for garnish. Serve with whole grain bread, green salad and fresh fruit.

Easy, quick to throw together, yummy meal filled with cancer fighting ingredients.

Makes 4 generous servings.



In my book, I have included the names of several dozen cookbooks which feature recipes that are compatible with (or that can be modified to fit) the ultra-healthy diet I follow, including some resources which are free.

I am also collecting recipes to include in a future edition of my book as well as to be featured on "Menus and recipes".   I have asked readers to send me any recipes that they have found to be great-tasting and easy to prepare, and that emphasize the nutritional guidelines which are outlined in my book.  I will also consider taking people's favorite "normal" recipes and posting versions which are modified for maximal cancer prevention.

If you have a recipe you wish to submit for possible inclusion in either my book or on this web page, please send it to me.  If the recipe is from a cookbook or other printed source, please include the name, author, and publisher of the source so that I can ask for permission to reprint the recipe.  If it is a recipe you created, or a family favorite, please indicate that, also.
