Weightloss Recipe: Jamaican Jerk Chicken Salad

The 4th of July is coming up quick, and that means we have to navigate a family get together, or BBQ and still try to reach our goals. Believe it or not, it is NOT impossible, especially with this amazing chicken salad recipe.

Jerk Chicken is the universe's way of letting us know that chicken doesn't have to be boring. Combined with fresh pineapple and fire-roasted red peppers, this spicy, tangy, and sweet chicken salad will have you dreaming of the Caribbean.

Now, when you're family asks you to bring a dish to a BBQ, this can be your go-to!

Note that the macros for this recipe were calculated for the chicken salad only, so if you pile it on top of some fresh bread, make sure to count those macros.

Calories: 193, Protein: 27 g, Carbs: 10 g, Fat: 4 g

Igredients:

  • 90 g cooked chicken breast, cubed or shredded
  • 15 g light mayo
  • 15 g 2% Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 8 g jerk chicken marinade (the macros for this recipe were calculated using Auntie Bev's All Natural Jerk BBQ Marinade Sauce)*
  • 30 g fresh pineapple, diced
  • 30 g fire-roasted red peppers, diced (find them in the jarred foods section)
  • 5 g green onion, thinly sliced
  • Small handful of arugula, if desired

Directions

  • Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and toss until fully mixed. Adjust the seasoning to your taste and serve on fresh bread, in a wrap or over salad greens

A liquid marinade creates a more flavorful sauce, but if you can't find a jerk chicken marinade, look for a jerk chicken spice blend. Also, jerk marinades can be deceptively spicy, so give it a taste before you dump it into the bowl.
