Easy Pineapple Chicken

 
Happy Monday Everyone! I have one of my absolute FAVORITE recipes to share with you today, but first -- How was your weekend? The highlight of my weekend was going to our church Christmas party on Saturday morning where we took Baby Galax to meet Santa for the first time!
But by the time we got there he was all tuckered out from the excitement and fell asleep right beforehand in Daddy's arms. 

 

So he didn't get a chance to tell Santa what he wants for Christmas, but that's okay because I'm pretty sure he would ask for more milk, fresh diapers or a bath. 
 

Galax has recently discovered his hands as his new favorite thing to chew on. Instead of just staring off into space, this is what he spends his time doing now :) 

As I mentioned, I have been dying to share this recipe with you guys, cause it is one of my FAVORITES ! This is my Pineapple Chicken recipe! It's super easy to make and all you'll need are 5 ingredients. This recipe is perfect for meal prepping because you can cook it in advance and it is low in calories and high in protein. It's also delicious!!!

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 

Ingredients: 

• Boneless chicken breast (I prefer the brand Tenderbird)

• 1 can drained of pineapple chunks

• Olive Oil 

• Onion Salt

• Garlic Powder

Directions:
• Put your frozen chicken on a pan, drizzle olive oil on top and sprinkle onion salt and garlic powder on top of the chicken.
• Then drain your can of pineapple chunks and dump the pineapple chunks on top of the chicken.You can also add cherry tomatoes on top of the chicken as well.
• Put it in the oven for 30 minutes (sometimes 45 minutes if you think it hasn't cooked all the way through). However be careful not to dry out the chicken too much in the oven, because you want it to be tender and juicy not dry and tough. Cut the chicken to see if it has cooked all the way through, it should be white, not a clear pink. 
• And enjoy!

Strawberry Shortcake Muffins

muffins

Hello muffins!!! I've always tried to stay away from muffins (even supposed "healthy" ones) because they are typically super high in calories, full of sugar and totally fattening. And even if they're deemed "healthy" they're usually still high in calories and not worth the expense on my waistline. But lo and behold, not these ones!! I finally found this perfect muffin recipe on DashingDish.com which is an AWESOMEly nutritious and low-calorie recipe for Strawberry Shortcake Muffins!! I tried this recipe out today and WOW wow WoW!! It's definitely a winner in my book which is why I'm sharing it with you. This recipe uses whole & clean ingredients, and the baking process is easy (just mix everything in the blender, then bake!) AND they're only about 100 calories each!!! And trust me they'll fill you up and satisfy your muffin craving too. 

Here are the ingredients and directions taken from DashingDish
Oats - 2 1/2 cup (old fashioned kind, not quick cooking)
Plain low fat greek yogurt - 1 cup 
Eggs - 2
Sweetener of choice, 3/4 cup (that measures the same as sugar) or 1/4 cup baking stevia
Baking powder 1 1/2 tsp 
Baking soda 1/2 tsp 
Strawberries, 1 1/2 cup diced, and patted dry + (optional 1/2 cup strawberries, diced to place on top of muffins)
Optional 1 tsp lemon juice

*Note: Don't use paper liners. Instead use foil liners and spray with non-stick spray, or use silicone liners. 

Step 1: 
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line 12 muffin tins with silicone or foil liners, (or just use a silicone muffin pan).


Step 2: 
Place all of the ingredients (except the strawberries) in a blender or food processor, and blend until oats are smooth. Pour mixture into a medium sized bowl, and stir in strawberries. Divide remaining 1/2 cup diced strawberries over the top of each muffin. (This step is optional, but it really makes the strawberries burst with color and flavor on top of each muffin!)

Step 3: 
Divide batter among cupcake liners, and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
(
I took mine out of the oven just a few minutes early because I like to have my muffins soft, moist and slightly mushy inside. )
The estimated total time to make this recipe is about 30-35 minutes.
Yum! and here is my little muffin I had for myself afterwards! It was sooooo SCCCRUMPtious!!!!
