The marinade works so fast because of the acid in the pineapple juice & apple cider vinegar, so it’s my “I didn’t plan anything for dinner, and I need something quick & healthy that will also be good leftover later in the week” meal 🙌Just add a little rice or potatoes and some frozen veggies!

It’s also one of my favorites out of all the 50+ pages of family-friendly recipes I give to my health coaching clients. They’ve all been tasted and approved by my family first, no Pinterest fails allowed 😂🚫🙌

Does anyone else prefer pineapple grilled vs. raw?! It doesn’t leave that funky aftertaste in your mouth!! 🍍

Fast & Flavorful Marinated Chicken

Fast & Flavorful CLEAN EATING Marinated Chicken!

I used to think I needed special seasoning packets or bottled blends to actually get some FLAVOR when I marinated meat.

But those pre-packaged marinades usually are full of sodium, sugar and not-so-healthy additives, so when I started eating cleaner to relieve my thyroid symptoms (low energy & metabolism, brain fog, etc.) I needed a way to spice up our meat WITHOUT relying on those seasoning packets! 

This easy marinade has been a life saver!! It’s super quick and the meat ends up really moist (dry chicken is the WORST right?). You can pair your chicken with brown rice or sweet potato and veggies, or use it on salads, wraps, etc.
