SparkRecipe Challenge

Monday, August 27, 2012

On my Walk It Out team, we were assigned the task of finding a SparkRecipe with at least 5 ingredients, preparing said recipe, taking a photo of the result and posting a blog.

In as much as I’d already made a quick stop at the store prior to learning we had this task, it was a true “make it work” moment finding a SparkRecipe that matched up with what I had on hand.

I decided to try Garlic Lime Chicken.
Going through a bit of a lime phase so have those on hand. ✔
Always have chicken in the freezer but currently they’re tenderloins not whole breasts but chicken is chicken. ✔
Heaven knows there is always garlic in my kitchen. ✔
So after making sure there was reduced sodium soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce and dry mustard in the pantry, I was good to go. ✔✔✔

1) chicken breasts
2) 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
3) 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
4) 1 T Worcestershire sauce
5) 2 cloves garlic, pushed through a press, or minced
and 6) 1/2 tsp. dry mustard

Mooshed a lime onto my juicer and it produced exactly ¼ cup. Whisked it together with the other marinade ingredients, put the chicken tenders into a ziplock, poured the marinade over and sealed.

Instructions were to chill for ½ hour to overnight. My little pieces of chicken rested for about 2 hours. After prepping the grill with non-stick spray and bringing the heat to medium, I placed the tenders on the grill.

After two minutes, flipped them and after another 5 minutes on the grill they were done.


It was easy-peasy, tasty and served with a cup of quinoa & wild rice and 2 cups watermelon chunks, it was a great 632 calorie dinner.
