Mix together soy sauce, pineapple juice, ketchup, sugar & garlic together in a small bowl until sugar is dissolved. Reserve 2 teaspoons of marinade in a small bowl and set aside for basting later. Season both sides of chicken with fresh ground pepper and place chicken, red pepper & onion in zip lock bag. Pour remaining marinade into bag, turn to coat and then refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

Preheat grill to medium-high heat and grill chicken 6-8 minutes per side or until cooked through depending on breast thickness basting occasionally with remaining marinade. I added the red pepper to the grill at the same time as the chicken and then I added the onion/pineapple to the grill after I flipped the chicken. Serve on a whole wheat sandwich round with a few pieces of spinach!

Quick & Simple Pesto Chicken Roll-ups with a Parmesan & Garlic Roasted Tomato – only 335 calories with 33 grams of protein!

Ingredients:

5oz raw chicken (I used two large breast tenders)

1.5tbsp jarred pesto

1 medium tomato

1tbsp panko crumbs

5grams grated parmesan cheese

1/2tsp olive oil

1/2tsp oregano

1/2tsp parsley

1/8tsp minced garlic

Fresh ground pepper

 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Wash & dry the chicken tenders. Place them between to pieces of plastic wrap and carefully flatten them with a mallet until they are an even thickness. Season both sides with pepper.

In a small bowl mix together the panko, parmesan, oregano, parsley, garlic and olive oil. Halve the tomato and split the panko mixture between each tomato. Bake on a foiled lined baking sheet for 20 minutes (note: the chicken will cook on the same baking sheet at the same time). Once the tomatoes go in the oven set one time for 20 minutes and another for 7 minutes. The chicken will go in the oven after the 7 minute timer goes off. Place half of the pesto mix on one piece of chicken and roll up, securing with 1 or 2 tooth picks. Repeat with the other piece of chicken. When the 7 minute timer goes off place the chicken on the baking sheet with the tomatoes and continue baking another 13 minutes or until chicken is cooked through, depending on breast thickness.
