#bern200 – Good Eats: The 10 Minute Chicken Thighs / Spring Mix Lunch

lunch

Most people use time / cost / convenience as reasons to why they eat fast food. Eating healthy doesn’t have to be expensive, time consuming, or bad tasting. I’m very lazy in the kitchen but I still enjoy healthy and tasty meals on the daily. I posted a picture of my lunch of Chicken Thighs and Spring Mix salad on Instagram and someone asked me for the recipe, so I decided to share it with you. This meal isn’t very intricate at all, but it is simple, quick, and something you will enjoy.

Ingredients:

chicken
Two Servings (2) Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs
(Serving Size: 4 oz., Calories: 150, Fat: 8g, Carbs: 0g, Protein: 20g)

salad
1/2 Serving ReadyPac Organic Spring Mix
(Serving Size: 4 1/2 Cups., Calories: 15, Fat: 0g, Carbs: 3g, Protein: 2g)

dressing
1 Serving Girard’s Light Champagne Dressing
(Serving Size: 2 tbs., Calories: 60, Fat: 5g, Carbs: 2g, Protein: 0g)

Season To Taste: Mr’s Dash Extra Spicy Seasoning Blend
(Serving Size: 1/4 tsp., Calories: 0, Fat: 0g, Carbs: 0g, Protein: 0g)

Season chicken with the Mrs Dash. Cook on stove top over medium heat in non-stick covered pan for 10 minutes. If you don’t have a Happy Call Double Sided Non-Stick Pan, then you should invest in one. While the chicken is cooking, put the Spring Mix in a plastic bowl and mix with the dressing. Be sure to flip the chicken one time during cooking. That’s pretty much in.

The finished product:

This meal totals 290 calories and costs about $2.50 per serving. This is much more convenient than fast food, and is surely more healthy than the burger / fry combo that you’re used to. Trust me, if I can take the time to make this, ANYONE can. Try it out and let me know what you think!
