Hawaiian Chicken

I really enjoy roaming Pinterest!  It gives me motivation and inspiration for all sorts of things – especially new recipes!  It’s actually one of the reasons I made this blog – to pay it forward to other Mamas out there like myself.  Moms who want to eat healthy but don’t want elaborate meals.  Can I get an Amen?!

This past Sunday after our kids went to bed my husband was watching sports and I got on my phone.  I start scrolling Pinterest for meal ideas for the week.  I found a recipe for Sheet Pan Hawaiian Chicken that was Whole 30 approved.  I thought, that sounds fun and differeneasy dinner, mom of 3, dance class, Hawaiian chicken, whole 30, eat clean, clean eating, 21 day fix, t!

Think of kabobs off the stick and no grill required!

I tweaked it a little to make it a tad cleaner with less sugars/carbs.  I was able to prep the dinner before dance class and just have my husband put it in the oven when he got home so it was ready when I got home will all 3 kids.  Served it with cauliflower rice and avocado!  Viola!

Ingredients:

1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into bite sized pieces

2 cups cubed fresh pineapple

1 red bell pepper cut into bite sized pieces

1/4 of a large red onion cut into bite sized pieces

2 medium sweet potatoes pealed and cut into bite sized pieces

1 Tablespoon olive or coconut oil

Salt and pepper to taste

1 Tablespoon unsweetened shredded coconut

1 lime quartered for garnish/juice to taste over top dish

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cut up all veggies, fruit and meat into bite sized pieces if you haven’t already done so or bought this way.
  3. Take a 9X13 inch baking pan with sides and add oil.  Add all veggies, fruit and meat.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  With a spoon or your hands toss to coat all ingredients with oil.
  4. Place in oven and roast for 15 minutes. Stir and then turn up the oven to 400 degrees.  Return pan to oven and bake for another 15-25 minutes until everything is lightly browned and potatoes are done.  (Note – there will be some sauce at the bottom of the pan, this is the drippings of the meat and water from the veggies/fruit.  You can use this to put on top of the dish or discard.)
  5. Dish out Hawaiian Chicken onto plates and sprinkle with desired shredded coconut and lime juice just before serving.  I served this dish with coconut rice and sliced avocado. Hawaii, Hawaiian chicken, whole 30, eat clean, healthy dinner, dance class, dance mom, husband, 21 day fix, macros, flexible dieting, one pot dish, one pan meal, my fitness pal
