PPP Recipe - Polynesian Chicken

Madre made this scrumptious meal last night for dinner and I had to share. It is loaded with nutrients and it tastes delicious! Thanks, cousin Heidi, for sharing this recipe!
Keep the healthy recipes coming, guys & gals.

{We had it with broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, and wild rice. Delicious combo}

Title: Polynesian Chicken

This was one of our family's favorites growing up. We like to double the sauce.

6 boneless chicken breasts
Flour with a little salt to coat chicken
Green pepper—cut into chunks
Mandarin oranges--drained
Sesame Seeds
Pineapple chunks--drained

½ c. orange juice
1 T. lemon juice
¼ c. brown sugar
2 t. corn starch
1 T. soy sauce

Coat chicken in flour/salt mixture and place in a greased baking dish. Bake at 350° for 40 minutes. In a saucepan combine brown sugar and corn starch, then add orange juice, lemon juice, & soy sauce. Stir and bring to a boil and cook until sauce thickens. Arrange pineapple, peppers & oranges over cooked chicken. Pour sauce over top & sprinkle with sesame seeds. Put back in oven for 5-10 more minutes.

Number Of Servings: 6

My nephew ate all of his! That's gotta count for something.

After dinner we went to Yogurt Stop for dessert! All of their frozen yogurt is low-fat and non-fat AND tastes delicious! Frozen yogurt is a nutritious alternative to ice cream and/or frozen custard, if you ever have that craving that you just can't get rid of without indulging (like me)!

My favorite combo is:
Fat-Free Cheesecake Frozen Yogurt + Organic Granola + Fresh Raspberries = YUM-alicious!

And again, the kids LOVE it!

Health tastes good,
I promise!

I would try to make that dinner but I have a feeling that the real thing couldn't do your pictures of it justice. The dinner looks amazing...and the frozen yogurt doesn't look so bad either...
