Clean Eating Coconut Lime Chicken

My Family & I have been making a conscious decision to eat better. While we aren’t following a Specific diet plan, we are trying our best to eat as clean as we can. If you aren’t familiar with ” clean eating” I would define it as choosing to eliminate all processed foods and extra additives from your diet. Basically, you are choosing to eat whole, unrefined foods.

I find that on the days that I don’t “cheat” I feel SO good, have good energy, and have managed to drop a few pounds over the past few months.

So today I am sharing a recipe for a meal I made for my family that clean or not, is simply DELICIOUS! It includes one of my FAVORITE new ingredients

Coconut Silk

Coconut milk that DOESN’T come in a can!

 

So, I combined this new found ingredient with a natural partner- LIME. Let’s be honest coconut lime ANYTHING is Heaven in my book.

Clean Eating Coconut Lime Chicken

Say goodbye to bland, dry chicken with this flavorful Coconut Lime Baked Chicken Recipe. It’s so easy too, and can be ready from start to finish—prep + cook time— in less than 40 minutes. However, I have found that the longer you allow the chicken to marinade the BETTER it is! It’s the perfect weeknight main dish, as it can be prepped the night or morning before and popped in a preheated oven for only 30 minutes. Serve with a simple side salad and/or Fresh Vegetables (which also cooks in no time) for a complete and most satisfying meal.

  1. This looks delicious! I love clean eating. Flavors are better and variety is the spice of life. Pinned!

  2. Observers maintain the item displays a new coherent approach,
    one thing thus low in your culture, that it’s not necessarily realised
    by simply all. These pre-computed numbers, hold on in a very giant information bank for millions or URLs on the net.

    Is that suppose to be ginger?

  4. I have learn some just right stuff here. Certainly value bookmarking for revisiting.

    I surprise how so much effort you put to create such a wonderful informative site.

  5. Wonderful site you have here but I was curious if you knew of any
    community forums that cover the same topics talked about
    here? I’d really love to be a part of community where I
    can get feedback from other experienced people that share the same interest.
    If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Thanks a lot!

  6. what can I say? Man oh man, this was GOOD! the only things I changed were to use OJ instead of apple juice (I was out) and cut down the red pepper to 1/2 tsp. The flavor was fantastic. Can’t wait to make this for my DH when he returns…for him I will probably use all the red pepper, he likes spicy stuff.
