Happy Wednesday, UFG'ers! The week is half way done and it's the first day of May! That means Monday starts a new month of UFG Bridal Boot Camp.
This month's boot camp features weights and an exercise ball. Double the core workout! You're going to do 5 reps of the following: 15 chest presses, 10 skull crushers, 15 hip raises and 10 leg raises. All on the exercise ball, twice a day. Here's the download (with pictures!)
On to today's recipe. This was enthusiastically Mailman approved. It. Was. Amazing. I searched high and low for unsweetened coconut that wasn't crazy expensive (I'm lookin' at you, rip off natural food stores...). FINALLY I found it at Giant! This stuff is dehydrated shredded coconut - and because it's dehydrated (meaning all the coconut milk is sucked out) it's 40% less fat on top of being unsweetened! It's a UFG win!
Next up for me is definitely coconut shrimp - so stay tuned! Recipe after the jump....
1.5 lbs Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast, cut into strips
2 tbsp Coconut Oil (1 per batch)
3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup + few tbsp Fat Free yogurt (read your labels! It should only have 3 ingredients!)
Pepper to taste
Place the strips on a wire rack on a baking sheet. Cook at 300 degrees for about 20 mins.
2 small mangos, diced (any kind will do - just not green ones, make sure they are ripe and sweet!)
2 oz raisins
1 medium onion, diced
1 inch fresh ginger, grated
1 packet of stevia
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar (get the good stuff - unfiltered! it's worth it)
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
pepper to taste
pumpkin pie spice to taste (taste throughout and add more when needed)
Add all ingredients to a small sauce pot and simmer away! Taste as you go to determine seasoning - I didn't add salt, but some people may need it. (If you're going to use salt - use sea salt rather than table salt and thank yourself later! I always keep good gray and pink sea salt on hand for when I think I need a bit more flavor.) You're going to let it simmer for around 20 mins, you want it to thicken and and soften.
Serve 3 pieces of chicken with as much chutney as you'd like (ain't nothing bad for you in there!)
