Sweet and Spicy Grilled Chicken Breast


Sweet and Spicy Grilled Chicken Breast

Let me tell you this dish is really good.  The combination of the chipotle chili’s and the honey really works to mellow out the spice.  The only reason I used the chili’s is I had some left over from making empanadas.  I will be using more of these in the future.  Just make sure you don’t overcook the chicken so it stays nice and moist.

Ingredients:

4 chicken breast, skinless and boneless

Salt and pepper

3 chipotle chili’s in adobe sauce (spicy), chopped

1/8 cup honey

1 cup frozen peas

Directions:

Mix the honey and chili’s together for the glaze.

Season the chicken with the salt and pepper and put on a hot grill.  Turn the chicken after about 10 minutes and brush the chicken with the glaze.  Turn after cooking for another five minutes and brush the other side with the glaze.  Turn chicken again and cook for a couple of minutes.  Remove to a serving plate to rest.  Slice the chicken in ½” pieces and serve.


These are the perfect mid morning pick me up and they are so easy to make.

I stumbled across this awesome recipe a few weeks ago that I thought I would share. These little energy bites are so awesome, and they are healthy so eating one or two or three leaves me feeling not too guilty.

The really nice thing about these energy bites? They are so versatile you can put whatever you want in them. Next time I make these I plan on adding some mini chocolate chips. Yum!

Grilled Sandwich


Yesterday being Friday meant that I was again too tired to cook.  Not wanting pizza or other fast food take out, I looked in the refrigerator and realized I had a lot of leftovers from the week.  I had some ham, roasted pork and pulled chicken.  What to do with all that food and be easy.  Break out the old George Foreman Grill and make grilled sandwiches.

I had two slices of honey wheat bread with a slice of swiss and provolone cheese with a big slice of roasted pork, sliced red onion, sliced avocado, two kosher pickle slices, stone ground mustard and grilled them in the George Foreman.  It took about two minutes and by the time I realized I did not take a photo, it was all gone.

Great way to do away with the left overs we end up with at the end of our weeks.
