Any healthier grill chicken breasts? from Stuart Barnett
Hello everyone, my name is Leo, and I’m 22 years old. And I’m here again to ask you about healthy food. Hope you won’t ignore my annoying questions.
You know, I have recently started eating healthy food, and I’m still looking for tasty meals. I like eating meat, especially chicken, it’s one of my favourite meals.
Do you know healthy grilled chicken recipes? I want to cook it for dinner today, so I will be pleased if you share some recipes with me. I’m waiting for your answers, thank you a lot.
Also, I would like to add that I swim three times per week. Though I do not do it professionally, (recreationally instead) I am keen on this beautiful sport which is excellent to stay fit.
As far as I know, swimmers should consume a significant number of carbohydrates for energy, but proteins are also essential as a part of their diet.
Chicken is an excellent source of protein, and also one of my favourites. I particularly like the grilled chicken breast accompanied by some substantial garnish, but which should be the best way to cook it? Are there any healthy garnishes to match? Are there any top recipes? Any suggestion will be welcome. Thanks!
Hi Leo! Every way to grill the chicken is ok, but the most usual is by filleting it (before grilling). If you do that, please remember that chicken breast is low in fat, and because of this, it might be sort of dry when cooked.
However, if you grill it correctly, and add a little bit of olive oil, or a fresh sauce, or lemon, or you can even add the marinade of your choice. Regarding recipes, I can personally recommend you this one. I do it myself, and apart from being delicious, it is healthy and provides some calories ideal for swimmers! Chicken with fruit sauce.
You will need Chicken breasts, mango, pineapple, oranges, kiwifruit, red onion, cumin, cilantro, salt and pepper. You can also experiment using other different sorts of fruits at your will. For the sauce, you can use lemon, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger.
First, prepare the chicken breasts by combining the lemon juice, soy sauce the garlic and ginger in a small pan. Put the chicken in the pan, cover it and put in the refrigerator for about an hour.
Secondly, prepare the grill and remove the marinade from the chicken. Grill the chicken until it is ready. The cooking time will depend on the way you grill the chicken (i.e., electric grill, oven, and so on). Just be careful not to overcook it. For the sauce combine the fruit and serve together. Enjoy!
