Wednesday’s Dinner: Chili Spiced Chicken Salad

Chili Spiced Chicken Salad 1Welcome back for a third easy and healthy dinner idea. This is the first meal I made from the Chisel & Hammer program and nutrition guide. For those who may not know, Chisel & Hammer is Beachbody’s newest fitness program. It comes with the dvd’s, portion control containers, and a clean eating plan. My hubby and I are currently on day three (out of 60) of this program and it is going really well. I can’t wait to try more of the recipes they have recommended for us because eating clean looks good, tastes great, and truly gives me the energy I need to keep going on a busy day. I hope you enjoy this meal as well. Notice that we omitted the pumpkin seeds and added chopped apple. Tune in tomorrow for a new recipe!

We used a red apple but a green apple would have been delicious with this.

  1. Combine yogurt, lime juice, chili powder, and honey in a small bowl; whisk to blend. Set aside; this will be your dressing.
  1. Combine chicken, onion, pumpkin seeds, and dressing; toss gently to blend. We also added chopped apple which really brought some needed sweetness to this dish.
  1. Top four serving plates each with two lettuce leaves. Top evenly with spinach and chicken salad; serve immediately.

Two lettuce leaves filled with the mixture was the perfect serving size for me.
