Mango and Red Pepper Chicken recipe – 141 calories

Ingredients:
2 pieces of thinly sliced chicken
1 mango, diced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 red pepper
1-2 teaspoons olive oil
1 tablespoon rum
2 teaspoons basil (for the chicken)
2 teaspoons chili powder (for the chicken)
1 teaspoon cinnamon or 1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon hot sauce or 1 teaspoon chili powder (for the sauce)
salt and pepper, to taste


Preparation:
1. Mix 2 teaspoons of basil with 2 teaspoons of chili powder, dip the raw chicken in this mixture.
2. Saute the minced garlic in olive oil over medium heat.
3. Add the chicken and saute for about 5-7 minutes (until cooked). Place the chicken in the oven or microwave to keep warm.
4. Deglaze the same pan with the rum. Slice the red pepper length-wise and saute in the pan, adding a little more olive oil if necessary.
5. Turn down the heat to medium-low. When the red pepper is still slightly crunchy, add the mango, cinnamon or brown sugar, and hot sauce or chili powder.
6. Cook for only a few minutes, until the mango is warm and slightly mushy.
7. Add the chicken to the sauce in the pan for about a minute to rewarm.
8. Serve over white rice.

  2. hmm, great recipe

  3. This is not a kind of whole food. Do you know what are whole foods? These are foods in their most natural form. Whole foods are unprocessed or very minimally processed foods i.e. they have “nothing taken away or added”, including chemicals. Whole foods include whole grains but not refined grains, and vegetables and fruits that provide vitamins and minerals but not supplements. A baked potato chopped with fresh onions and sour cream is an example of a whole food recipe. Fresh berries taken with breakfast as an alternative to toast pastries makes up a great whole food addition to your breakfast. These are just a few options available in a healthy diet plan with whole foods.
