Chicken Breast with Pineapple Salsa

  • 4 chicken breasts

  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 pineapple (diced – approximately 2 cups)

  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • Black pepper (to taste)

What to serve this with:

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Place marinate ingredients into a covered bowl (chicken, lime juice of 3 limes,  pepper, coriander). Leave for 1 – 2 hours if you can.
  2. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees (if you prefer grill cook in a pan you can, however use as little oil as possible)
  3. Place chicken into a baking tray and put into the oven for 18-25 minutes (test the chicken to ensure no pink inside)
  4. While the chicken is baking, prepare the salsa
  5. Salsa:  Pineapple, honey, avocado, red onion, juice of 1 lime, vinegar, coriander, pepper.
  6. Make sure the rice or cous cous (whatever you choose) is also prepared while the chicken is baking

How to serve:

The portions on the plate should look similar to the photo below.

  • 1/2 the plate with green leafy vegetables (or fruit) (in this case salsa)
  • 1/4 wholegrains (about the size of your clenched fist)
  • 1/4 lean protein (in this case chicken – about the size of your palm)

    This is how your plate should  look - 1/2 vegetables/fruit; 1/4 wholegrain; 1/4 lean protein

    This is how your plate should look – 1/2 vegetables/fruit; 1/4 wholegrain; 1/4 lean protein
