Grilled Chicken Cutlets With Summer Succotash
This chicken recipe serves up a heaping dose of protein from the chicken, which keeps you satisfied and helps you build more muscle. The summer succotash on the side is made with lima beans, which are rich in fiber in addition to protein.
Ingredients: Chicken cutlets, salt, pepper, olive oil, frozen baby lima beans, corn, grape tomatoes, grated Parmesan, fresh basil, lemon wedges
Directions: Place a grill pan over high heat. Season 4 thin chicken cutlets (about 1 pound total) with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Grill until cooked through (about 3-4 minutes), turning once. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high.
Add in 1 cup frozen baby lima beans, thawed; 1/2 cup corn; and 1 pint grape tomatoes. Cook, tossing occasionally, until tomatoes burst (about 3-4 minutes). Stir in 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan and 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, torn. Pair each portion with lemon wedges and a 100-calorie whole-wheat roll.
