Apricot/Lemon Chicken w/ Sweet Lemon Mint Pear Salad

This recipe is so easy and so tasty, plus it's healthy too. The Chicken has just 245 Cal per serving, and the Salad has 72 Cal per serving!!! Sweet!!

Apricot/Lemon Chicken
(4 servings)
  1 tsp Curry Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Pepper
4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast (remove fat)
2/3 C Apricot Preserve 
1/4 C Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
1/4 C Water
1 TBL 1tsp Lemon Rind 

Combine the spices and rub over the chicken breast. 

Oil a Large Skillet. Cook Chicken on medium high heat until done (about 7 minutes per side depending on the thickness of the breast). Remove from pan and keep warm.
Combine Apricot Preserve, Lemon Juice, and Water in a bowl. Add to skillet and stir until smooth. Cook over medium heat about 1-2 minutes. 

Spoon over chicken and sprinkle with lemon rind. 

Now on to the Salad (my favorite part, it's sooo yummy.) The flavors may sound weird, but the work soooo well together.


Sweet Lemon Mint Pear Salad

1 TBL Sugar
3 TBL Lemon Juice
2 tsp Canola Oil
4 Cups Spinach
1 Pear (thinly sliced)
1/2 C Red Onion (sliced)
1/4 C Chopped Mint Leaves (you can leave this out if you don't like mint, and it's still good)

In your bowl, whisk together Sugar, Lemon Juice, and Oil. 
Mix in the remaining ingredients and toss well. 

And that is it my friends simple, healthy, and oh so good!!!
