Grilled Chicken, Broccoli Salad, Baked Sweet Potato

CHICKEN (200 calories per breast)

2 six oz chicken breasts-we got a packet of knorr pesto mix and brushed some of the prepared pesto onto the chicken. Grill on the BBQ for 4 minutes per side. It was delicious!

BROCCOLI SALAD (about 120 calories per serving):
(this makes enough for 2 servings)

3 cups of chopped broccoli (raw)
2 Tbsp diced red onion (more if you like more)
8 grape tomatoes cut in half each
1.5 TBSP dry roasted sunflower seeds
3 TBPS Kraft Miracle Whip Light dressing

Mix all the above ingredients and serve cold. This is a nice summery salad to have and really healthy for you. The original version of this had bacon which adds a nice flavor but I omitted it to save calories.

BAKED SWEET POTATO (about 80 calories per 1/2 potato)

1 sweet potato (I got the kind wrapped in plastic and ready to go in the microwave). Microwave for 7 minutes. Kristi and I split one potato between the two of us. Added a tiny bit of butter and salt and it was good to go!


Rating: This was an awesome healthy meal that we decided we would have OFTEN! We really liked the tastiness of othe chicken, the freshness of the broccoli salad, and the sily sweetness of the potato!
