COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update Learn More

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

CentraCare care givers have been working around the clock for more than 20 months to care for you, your families and friends during COVID. We are committed to caring for every Minnesotan who needs us, and nothing will prevent us from doing so – even during these never-seen-before times.

The challenge of providing this level of care is that our hospital beds are often full. ERs in all of our hospitals are packed. And our clinical teams are exhausted. Early in the pandemic, our community stepped up in amazing ways to help us. We ask that you again join us in fighting this pandemic together.

How can you help?

  • Please get your COVID vaccines and booster shots. They are proven safe and effective in reducing COVID illness, keeping people out of the hospital, and preventing death.
  • If your situation is not an emergency, please use other care options, including:
  • If this is a medical emergency, call 9-1-1, or visit the ER.

Together, we can do this. Thank you for your support.

Ken Holmen, MD

CentraCare Health Weight Management Recipe

Adapted from The Iron You


  • 1 lb. chicken breast, sliced into thin strips
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped cilantro (or parsley)
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. sweet paprika
  • ½ tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • Juice of half a lime
  • 2 bell peppers, thinly sliced
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced


  1. In a large bowl combine chicken, cilantro, oregano, chili powder, sweet paprika, cumin, garlic, and salt. Toss until chicken is coated and set aside.
  2. Heat 1 Tbsp. of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Add the peppers in a single layer. Once the peppers have started to brown, add sliced onion and ½ tsp salt.
  4. When peppers are charred in spots and onions have softened and sweetened, scrape mixture onto a plate or bowl to clear the skillet.
  5. Return skillet to the burner and heat remaining 1 Tbsp of olive oil.
  6. When sizzling, add the strips of chicken. Sauté strips until cooked through — about 6 minutes.
  7. Add pepper mixture to the skillet along with the lime juice.
  8. Heat again until everything is sizzling and serve.
