Honey Mustard Chicken And Avocado Salad
My salad ending up being in a container verses on a pretty plate so we could eat these on the go. My daughter had an away game an hour away, so this is how my family rolls. There are no drive thru windows happening & I have to plan out our meals the week prior in order to nail my nutrition.
This dinner was a huge hit with my three children & husband. I am excited to share my recipe with you all because it's super simple! Marinade Ingredients: 1/3 cup honey (make sure there is no added sugar or chemicals) 3 tablespoons of whole grain mustard 2 tablespoons of dijon mustard 1 teaspoon of minced garlic a pinch of sea salt 2 tablespoons of garlic infused coconut oil 4 boneless chicken breast cut in half (fat removed) Salad: My children like romaine & I used lemon arugula for the adults 1 cup of cherry or grape tomatoes 2 whole avocados sliced (for 5 adult servings)
Instructions: I like the chicken to have a lot of flavor. So I put the marinade & chicken together the morning of our dinner or you can do this the night prior. I pour all the marinade ingredients into a large ziplock bag and shake vigorously. Then place the bag of chicken in the fridge. The salad can be divided and prepped ahead. I sliced the avocado as I cooked the chicken. The chicken can be cooked ahead if you are limited on time for dinner. You can grill the chicken or you may cook it on a skillet over medium heat with a teaspoon of coconut oil or olive oil. I cooked the chicken for ten minutes on each side. I tend to make my own dressings or use raw dressing or fresh squeezed lemon or limes over the lettuce depending on what I have remaining when following the 21 day fix nutrition plan. If you are following the 21 day fix this is what it counts as: 2 reds (I double the protein) 1 blue 2 greens 1 orange if I use dressing 1 tablespoon
I hope you enjoy this as much as my family & I did!
