Chicken is a protein powerhouse (a half-breast hauls in 27 grams!) that probably makes an appearance on your dinner menu at least two or three times a week, maybe more. Baked with lemon juice, chopped and sprinkled over salad—your usual prep methods get dinner on the plate, but your palate is pleading for more. Think outside ordinary marinades and cooking methods with this refreshing fruit-topped dish. Fresh spinach and basil add extra nutrition, while a drizzle of dark balsamic vinegar gives every bite the excitement your taste buds crave.
