This healthy chicken dish is so flavorful and delicious. I love how all of the aromatic spices on the chicken go so perfectly with the sweet and tangy tomato chutney. Your 21 Day Fix never tasted so good!
Ever find a recipe that you want to try, but maybe you’re on the fence about whether or not you or your family will like it and you let it sit and sit and sit and never make it? Well, this is actually a common problem for me. I have two ENORMOUS binders full of meals that I may or may not ever make. I’m a hoarder. A recipe hoarder to be precise. Things could be worse, right?
Here is one such meal that, after DEVOURING it, I couldn’t believe that I had let it sit in my big, blue binder so long without making it. These are flavors that always make me happy, I honestly don’t know what I was thinking. Not only was this chicken delicious, it was pretty quick and really easy, too.
The original version of this recipe was from Cooking Light Magazine… from 2006. I know, I know! I changed a few things up to make it more Fix-friendly, of course and I also removed some chopped serrano pepper from the chutney (though I’m sure it would be really great!) so that my kids would eat it. Maybe next time I’ll do half and half. Oh well, that’s for another day.
If you’re wondering, my oldest did eat it and love it, but my three-year-old is currently in the “I don’t like dinner!” stage – yes, she literally says that almost every night before she even has any idea what’s for dinner – and we barely got her to eat some plain roasted chicken and some broccoli. Sigh. Sometimes you just have to be grateful for the little victories. Anyway, I think most kids would like this one, the chicken is SUPER-flavorful, but not spicy and the chutney is slightly sweet. If you’d like to crank up the heat, you can add some chopped serrano or jalapeno peppers to the shallots. 🙂
