Does a New Year = A Healthier You? In my world I am all about moderation. I try to make sure 80-85% of my meals are on the healthier end with a small percentage being a little more indulgent. It seems to work for me.
The good news about this meal is it seems quite indulgent but it really is quite healthy….now thats a win!
It’s just so pretty
I love it when food comes out looking pretty, I really do think it makes it taste better. Have you ever thought about it? If something looks good…it just seems to taste good (unless it has bananas in it). For this dish the pretty not only comes from the salsa on top but also the browned chicken…it really gets some great color on it as it bakes.
The salsa is just so pretty and it comes togethers so quick I use it on almost anything. I have made this salsa for parties to serve with chips, served it with enchilada soup or over salmon. I make it year round.
It is quick & easy
Some chicken dishes require time to marinade…not this one. The flavors get baked right into the chicken. The honey, soy sauce, garlic, lime juice…etc all come together to make a delicious sauce for the chicken to cook in. It is a little sweet and a little tangy with a perfect hint of sour making it a perfect bite each and every time.
Even better it only needs about 20 minutes total in the oven. I normally use boneless, skinless breasts but you could use thighs if you wanted, just adjust cooking time as needed.
Bring on the healthy
A fun, light and super flavorful chicken that is a perfect summer dinner...and don't worry it is on the table in less than a hour (more like 45 minutes at most)

Change it up a bit
If you don’t feel like grilling the corn, just used can. If cherry tomatoes not in your fridge use a big one or replace with asparagus or green beans. Want to add more kick throw in some cayenne pepper or extra chili powder to the chicken and the salsa.
Not feeling chicken? You can use this same cooking method with salmon, tilapia or pork chops. The possibilities are endless.
Trust me the healthier you will love this dish and so will everyone else.
