GRILLED TACO CHICKEN AND MANGO SALSA

I don’t know about you but we love some tacos. Really anything with a Mexican flair. While I like to pair these two together, I will be giving you the recipes and the nutrition break down separately. This chicken recipe is best marinated for a few hours or overnight. We love to grill it but you can cook it stove top or baked as well. The taco chicken is so versatile, you can serve it with the mango salsa, peppers and onions and some rice on the side or shred it for easy tacos or quesadillas, add to soups, salads and more.


Step 1

Estimated Time:

Place the chicken in a gallon sized zip lock back and pound with a smooth sided meat mallet until the breasts are even thickness.

    Hot Dog Chili

    Who doesn't love a hot dog? Especially in the summer! I have been making this for years and it's always a crowd pleaser.  Pair this with an all beef or Turkey dog and you can easily stay on track for your goals. This is another freezer friendly recipe as well.  I make a double batch when feeding a crowd and their is rarely any left!

    Protein Pancakes

    One of my favorite breakfast foods are pancakes. This recipe does have quite a few ingredients and just like any other pancake recipe it's a bit of a process. One of the good things about it though is you can double the batch and freeze them for a quick fix later. Just pop one or two out of the freezer and stick them in the toaster.  I like mine with a fruit compote instead of syrup. That recipe is on the website as well.  Each pancake is a serving for the macros listed but you can easily enjoy two or three as a meal depending on your nutritional needs. This recipe does call for Protein powder and I prefer PeScience's Cake pop flavor for this recipe but any brand that you choose is fine.  Not a paid promotion by the way I'm just a fan of their products.

    Homemade Turkey Italian Sausage

    I absolutely love any kind of sausage. Traditional sausage is typically high in fat and sodium though. This recipe is great in pasta dishes like lasagna or spaghetti, casseroles, crumbled up on pizza and so much more. If you like it spicy add a teaspoon of red pepper flakes for a little something extra.

    Cheesesteak Style Stuffed Peppers

    I absolutely love a good Cheesesteak sandwich and this recipe is a great low carb option to satisfy a craving. I make these with ground turkey but you can sub out steak or even chicken. Just remember that substitutions change the macros. Try it my way, I promise they are fantastic! I like to pair these with baked sweet potato fries ( not counted in the macros for this recipe).

They are so delicious and ridiculously easy to make.

    Mini Bell Pepper Nachos

    This a great recipe for dinner, meal prep or even a potluck. It's easy to double and make extra for a crowd. I use the slow cooker taco chicken recipe for this and you can add additional toppings like corn, beans, salsa and sour cream or Greek Yogurt. Top with what ever you like, but keep in mind that additional toppings change the calorie and macro counts.

    Turkey Breakfast Sausage

    This recipe is a staple in our home.  It's that healthy comfort food fix that is super easy to prep and have on hand. I grew up making pork sausage from scratch on my grandparents farm. This is a great recipe to get my sausage fix without all the excess calories.  Here I explain how to make the sausage as patties but you can also cook this as crumbles for adding to breakfast casseroles, eggs, gravy and more. I double this recipe and make a huge batch to make sure we have plenty.  This recipe is also very freezer friendly too! Side note: when tracking this recipe for macros you can also just weight the number of patties or amount you want to eat (or what fits your need) and count it as just Turkey. The spices are minimal calorie wise.  So unless you really need to track the sodium you can use this option to make tracking a bit easier.

    PIZZA KABOBS

    Some version of Pizza is asked for in my home every single week! This is a fun take on pizza that we enjoy especially in the summer time when we run the grill more often. Be sure if you are using wooden skewers that you soak them before hand in water so they don’t burn. Once cooked you can eat as is with some pizza sauce or pop off the skewer and throw everything over a salad. You can also change up the veggies a bit if you like.

    CHICKEN PICCATA WITH ORZO

    We all know that calories can add up in some of our favorite Italian dishes, especially if the chicken is breaded, fried and served over pasta. Skip that with this flavorful dish and serve with orzo on the side. The lemon zest gives the orzo a nice light citrus note. This is such a bright and flavorful dish, enjoy!

    GREEK CHICKEN SALAD WITH ZOODLES

    In the summer months when it's hot and you want something light and refreshing this is a great salad option. It’s also fantastic to make as part or meal prep to have for later. The longer it sits the better it tastes and there is no need to reheat the chicken. I’m all about easy and this is simple and easy even on the go! Tip: make a day ahead so the flavors can marinate overnight! Note: Varying factors such as product types or brands can change the nutritional information in any given recipe. Different online calculators provide different results.
