Recipe: Pineapple Chicken with Red Skin Potato and Yogurt

by


Reminiscent of comfort food, this recipe is extremely flavorful and under 550 calories! Since the pineapples are marinated in a little honey and vinegar before being added to the chicken, the juices of the pineapple are pulled out beautifully to blend with the seasonings of a little salt and cilantro. And, as I mentioned in this article, I love substituting greek yogurt for anything that calls for sour cream. A red skin potato brushed lightly with olive oil and served with fresh ground pepper and a dollop of greek yogurt is an excellent, low calorie, filling side dish.

Ingredients (Makes 2 Servings):

Pineapple Topping

2 cups fresh pineapple, chopped
1 tsp raw honey
1 tbsp cilantro. chopped
1 tbsp balsamic

Chicken

2 5-7 oz. organic chicken breast
1 clove minced garlic
1/4 cup diced white onion

Potatoes

1 red skin potato per serving
olive oil
2 oz. greek yogurt

Broccolini

1 clove minced garlic
olive oil to taste

Directions:

Cut fresh pineapple into medium sized chunks. Sprinkle with salt (to taste) and stir in honey. Stir in balsamic and cilantro. Set aside.

In a large sauté pan, warm minced garlic and a teaspoon of olive over medium heat. Add broccolini and cover. Stir occasionally while rest of dinner is cooking (you may need to add a touch more olive oil if drying occurs). Cook until broccolini is as soft as you’d like.

In separate large sauté pan, warm minced garlic and a teaspoon of olive oil over medium heat. Increase heat to medium-high, add chicken breasts and cook until golden on both sides. Add onions.  Let simmer for 5 minutes then add pineapple mixture. Reduce heat to medium and cover. Stir occasionally.

While chicken and pineapple mixture is cooking down, wash red skin potatoes and poke several times with a fork. Microwave on high for 6 minutes. When potatoes are soft, brush with olive oil, cut into quarters and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Use greek yogurt instead of sour cream for some added protein with fewer calories.

Serve chicken breast with a cup of pineapple mixture, four stalks of broccolini and one redskin potato for a total of 543 nutrient dense calories. Enjoy!
