Easy and healthy grilled chicken recipe, just in time for the grilling season and hot weather! Meaty chicken thighs marinated in sweet zesty marinade of coconut milk, lime juice and fresh cilantro. Jalapeno pepper adds a tiny spicy kick to the chicken that is still kid friendly. Feel free to add more jalapenos for a spicier version. The recipe is so easy, you can marinate the chicken the day before and grill it on a weeknight after work.

Healthy stir fry is a no brainer. Just combine some protein, vegetables and healthy noodles, and you are good to go. Soba noodles are quick to cook, usually made of a whole grain like buckwheat, which means they provide more fiber than wheat or rice noodles. Stir frying these noodles with a bunch of kale and other vegetables is a huge benefit. Also if you can find organic soba noodles like I did that would be great. I paid only $0.80 per package.
Ah…Braised chicken breasts with fresh asparagus, herbs and white wine vinegar sauce. Serve it on top of Skinny Orange Brown Rice for a quick spring dinner. Only 182 calories & 4 WW points+ for a decent size portion. Braising is one of my favourite ways to cook meat as it’s fast and is done all in one place – stovetop.
