What makes this chicken stew so healthy?

Chicken, sweet potatoes, and black beans&hellip have I mentioned how HEALTHY and nutrient-packed these three ingredients are? Let&rsquos take a look:

    is an excellent source of lean protein, all of the B vitamins, and has a broad spectrum of vitamins and minerals. Did you know just a 4 oz. portion of chicken breast is 70% of your daily value in protein? There are also so many options- a skinless breast has the least amount of fat, but is pricier, whereas a skin-on thigh has the most, but is cheaper. are ridiculously high in vitamin A with 214% of your daily value per a 1-cup serving, which is great for bone growth, eyesight, reproductive health, and immune system health. Their orange color makes them high in vitamin C and beta-carotene, similarly to carrots, which is absorbed better when sweet potatoes are eaten simultaneously with fat (the olive oil in this recipe alone is enough for this benefit). And let&rsquos not forget- their sweetness and texture makes them absolutely DELICIOUS! are high in folate and fiber, and provide key support for your digestive health. They&rsquore also a high source of plant protein and iron, which makes them key in any plant-based diet. Plus, they&rsquore SO inexpensive!


Smoky Chicken Sweet Potato and Black Bean Casserole

Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and heat to 400 degrees F. Prepare a 9吉 inch baking dish by spraying lightly with olive or canola oil spray. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat until simmering. Add the sweet potatoes and cook until just heated through, about 5 minutes (they will not be cooked through). Transfer the sweet potatoes to a large bowl. Add the black beans, drained tomatoes, chicken, ¾ cup shredded cheese, smoked paprika, liquid smoke, cumin, chili powder, salt, and garlic. Stir to combine. Transfer to the baking dish and spread into an even layer. Sprinkle evenly with remaining ½ cup mozzarella cheese. Lightly spray a large sheet of aluminum foil with cooking spray. Place the foil oil-side down over the baking dish and cover tightly. Bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake until the sweet potatoes are tender and the cheese on top is browned in spots, about 30 minutes more. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.

Have you ever come up with a fabulous idea for a recipe and thought to yourself, I’m a frickin’ genius!, only to realize after Googling said idea that you’re millionth person to the party?

Always looking for a new way to use quinoa in my cooking, as it’s a food Ben and I can both agree on (unlike onions, fruit, cream cheese, eel, squash, bacon wrapped giblets, cool whip, chevre, eggs, peanut noodles, or mushrooms) and can’t be beat in the nutritional department, I thought –

What if – just WHAT IF – I paired quinoa with summer staples like grilled chicken & corn, then drizzled it with a cool dressing of sweet BBQ sauce and creamy Greek yogurt, and called it thebestthingeverrrr?!

Well, I can tell you why it’s a popular idea, because BBQ Chicken Quinoa Salad is seriously unreal!

Full of over-the-top flavors like smoky grilled corn and sassy BBQ sauce, and protein-packed ingredients like grilled chicken, creamy black beans, and fluffy quinoa, BBQ Chicken Quinoa Salad is pretty much a healthy and delicious party on a plate.

Shrimp and Avocado Taco Salad

Use leftover grilled chicken and corn from your last BBQ, or even rotisserie chicken and frozen corn, to get BBQ Chicken Quinoa Salad to your table even faster. No matter the method, the fresh and satisfying flavors will still shine through!

Start by rinsing 1 cup quinoa in a fine mesh sieve under cold, running water. Do not skip this step! Quinoa has a naturally bitter coating called saponin which will ruin the final dish if it’s not rinsed off.

After rinsing the quinoa, combine it with 2 cups chicken broth in a small saucepan, then bring it to a boil on the stovetop.

Place a lid on top, lower the heat to medium low, then cook the quinoa for 20 minutes or so, until it’s light, fluffy, and springy.

Meanwhile, grill 2 chicken breasts seasoned with salt and pepper, and 2 ears shucked corn, over medium-high heat. The chicken should take about 4-5 minutes a side, and the corn will take just as long. A match made in grilling heaven!

Let the chicken cool off the grill for a few minutes, then shred or chop it up, and toss with enough of your favorite BBQ sauce to coat.

Then slice the charred kernels off the corn cob.

To make the BBQ sauce drizzle that goes on top of the dish, simply stir together 1/4 cup each BBQ sauce and plain Greek yogurt.

Top the cooked quinoa with shredded BBQ chicken and grilled corn, then add black beans and shredded cheddar cheese. Pop the dish in the microwave for 20 seconds to melt the cheese (if you want) then drizzle with the BBQ sauce dressing, and top with chopped cilantro. Finally, face plant!


Chicken BLT with Sweet Smoky Aioli

Combine the ground chicken or turkey with salt, pepper, and 1/4 cup flour or panko.

Step 2

Blend together with your hands or a fork.

Step 3

Divide mixture into 4 equal portions.

Step 4

Flour a clean dry work surface with flour or panko and press each piece of ground poultry out into a thin disk flipping it over and adding more flour/panko as needed so it doesn’t stick.

Step 5

Heat a sauté pan with a small amount of olive or coconut oil.

Step 6

Place the flattened out disk into the hot pan and cook about 2-3 minutes per side being careful not to burn the breading.

Step 7

Remove from the pan and let cool enough to touch.

Step 8

Mix together all aioli ingredients until well combined.

Step 9

When the wrap has cooled, spread with mayo or aioli, fill it with bacon, lettuce, and tomatoes.

Step 10

Serve with additional sweet and smoky aioli as a dipping sauce and enjoy!

Note: This recipe can easily be quartered or halved to serve less. Or make all of the wraps at once and refrigerate or freeze for future use. Wraps can be eaten right out of the fridge or warmed. Leftover aioli can be placed in an airtight container and refrigerated.

Chicken and turkey are popular for being high in protein and low in saturated fats making a mealtime staple for athletes as well as in many healthy eating households. Falling back on the same old recipes starts to become mundane and a little too routine. Finding new ways to cook up the standard bird and keep it interesting (and keep your taste buds dancing) is time-consuming but in this series of recipes, I will highlight many different ways to prepare your poultry so your meal rotation is anything but boring. So whaddya say? Let’s play chicken!

Using thin pieces of ground cooked chicken in place of wraps or bread has revolutionized my thoughts on sandwiches and anything traditionally bready. When you press ground chicken or turkey thin and bread it like a schnitzel, the result is a thin piece of delicious protein that’s pliable yet sturdy enough to use as a wrap or taco shell to contain sandwich fillings. This method can be used in any sandwich application as a replacement for the bread increasing the protein punch and lowering the carb content.

A traditional BLT is revamped with a new “bread” for this recipe using a ground chicken-based wrap. This tasty and packable power lunch is great for days when you’re at the office or on the go. Try using a ground chicken wrap in any of your other favorite sandwiches!
