WOW!!!! I found inspiration for this recipe online at Delightful Taste Buds. I added jalapeno for more flavor, but the lime and chipotle seasoning made me think “I should add jalapeno to this!!” I was not sure how the apple would work with the jalapeno, but it turned out delicious!!! Day 2 of a 21 “clean eating challenge and this hit the spot after a tough workout. Plus, it was a super quick meal to make. I added some steamed broccoli and fresh fruit to make it a complete meal!

Apple Jalapeno Chicken

Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts, diced into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ red onion, minced
  • 1-2 jalapenos, minced
  • 1 Fuji apple, diced into ½ inch pieces
  • 3 tbsp natural, unsweetened applesauce
  • Chipotle seasoning
  • 1 lime, juiced

Directions

Season chicken with desired spices. Heat oil over medium heat in skillet and add chicken, cooking until browned. While the chicken is cooking, mince garlic, onion, and jalapeno and dice up the apple. In a separate pan, sauté garlic, onion, and jalapeno until fragrant. Add diced apples and onion mixture to chicken.  Mix together applesauce, lime juice, chipotle seasoning. Add to chicken and cook for additional 5 minutes, stirring frequently until apples are softened and flavors mixed well.
