Healthier's about time!

So, now that baby #3 is here and I head back to work in a few weeks, I need to get back to my "fighting" weight as I call it. I will be pinning this recipe I found on It's a chili rubbed chicken with pineapple salsa...and OMG was it delightful. To be honest, I'm always kind of skeptical of these types of meals. In my cynical mind I'm thinking, (read this with as much as sarcasm as possible) 'sure its going to taste good...and just because you mix random low fat stuff together doesn't make it yummy.'
Well this one proved me wrong! The kick from the chili powder on the chicken contrasted perfectly with the sweetness of the pineapple in the salsa.
True to form, I modified it slightly. Mango chutney was nowhere to be found at Target and I wasn't about to go the homemade route tonight. I grabbed some orange marmalade and figured it was close enough. I also picked up a can of crushed pineapple (which I did not drain; just spooned in half the can into a bowl). I also omitted the cilantro because I think it's nasty. In its place I put in a dash of parsley and a 1/4 tsp of ground cumin. I prepared some brown rice as a base. For any other WW followers it was 9 points per serving and we have enough left over for lunch tomorrow.

Try this; you won't be disappointed!
