Like I stated yesterday, Matt and I are trying to be a little more healthy. We’re eating more fruit and veggies and way less breads and sugars. So far we have more energy and feel better through out the day. Also, this may come as a shock to some but I am trying to cut down on my Diet Pepsi intake. I drink so much more water, I try for a gallon a day. My skin is clearing up and again I have a lot more energy. I thought I was drinking the caffeine for the energy, not to kill it. Also, I crave way less sugar. Anyways, here is an easy healthy dinner idea that didn’t take long to put together and was delicious and different. Matt helped me put this together and it was light and healthy.
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut in half lengthwise
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1/3 cup chopped yellow onion
1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon brown sugar
3 garlic cloves, diced
1 teaspoon sesame seeds
3 thinly sliced scallions, white and green parts
1. Place the chicken breasts in a Ziploc bag. In a medium bowl combine soy sauce, onion, apple sauce, sesame oil, ginger, brown sugar, and garlic. Whisk together. Save 1/4 cup marinade for basting later. Dump the marinade in the Ziploc bag with the chicken. Refrigerate and marinate for at least an hour.
2. Over medium high heat, grill the chicken for 2 to 3 minutes or until it no longer sticks to the grill. Turn the chicken over, spoon saved marinade over each piece of chicken, grill for an additional 3 minutes.
3. Serve with rice and/or vegetables!
Stick to those Resolutions!
