Grilled Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken and roasted veggies

 Today was a great Monday! Everyone is back in the swing of things.  Boot camp was AWESOME today; full of focused and sweaty people working their booties off.
On top of that, I have been very pleased and impressed with the body fat testing results I saw today from the members. Everyone is staying focused and getting results!!! Funny how focus, dedication, and hard work provides results… Who’d a thought??
Here’s another great simple, healthy recipe to throw together for the family! 

Feeds 3
15- 20 minutes cook time.


1lb Chicken Breast
1 tablespoon Spicy Garlic Sauce
½ cup lime juice
1 tsp Cajun spice
1 Avocado
1 small bundle of Asparagus
1 small bunch of broccoli crowns
1 tbsp Coconut oil (or olive oil, I prefer coconut. It tastes better!)
Red pepper flakes (if desired)

Step 1
I like to marinate my chicken for awhile before I grill it. So I suggest prepping it about an hour before you're ready to cook it. Place your chicken breast in a baking dish and cover it with the lime juice. Sprinkle desired amount of Cajun spice over it. Then add the spicy garlic sauce generously over the chicken.
Step 2
While the chicken is marinating, I like to prep my veggies as well. Cut your broccoli crown and bunch of asparagus into bite size chunks for sauteing. Set in the refrigerator until you're ready to cook the dinner.
Step 3
After the chicken is done marinating, preheat your grill. Meanwhile, heat coconut oil (or olive oil) in a skillet over medium and stir in the cut up broccoli and asparagus chunks. 
Step 4
Place your chicken on the grill, flipping every 6-8 minutes. Chicken should be done within about 15 minutes (no pink but nice and juicy!). While your chicken is cooking, sprinkle the veggie mix with the desired amount of pepper. I also tossed in a little bit of red pepper flakes. Cook veggies 
until bright green, it should have a nice crunch to them!

** As you can see, I added a couple slices of avocado to the top of my chicken. Because, let's face it.... a little avocado never hurt anyone, right? When I say a little, I mean NOT the whole avocado!! :)

I hope you enjoy this light, easy meal! Add your own healthy twist and let me know how it turns out!
