Hands down this is one of my favorite meals! Penny-pinching or not, this meal should be a part of your regular diet. You’ll likely never approach eating chicken & rice the same.
● 5oz chicken breast
● 1 tbsp mustard
● ½ cup instant Basmati rice
● ½ cup diced pineapple (freshly cut)
● ½ cup diced bell peppers
● Seasonings to taste: 1 tsp cumin, sea salt (pinch), pepper
1. Cut the chicken breast into small pieces.
2. Rub 1 tbsp mustard on the pieces of chicken breast and then add seasonings.
3. Dice your bell peppers and your fresh pineapple.
4. Set skillet on medium heat and lightly spray with coconut oil.
5. Add chicken to the skillet and cook on all sides. When the chicken is almost finished cooking, increase the heat to high heat and toss in pieces of pineapple and bell peppers. Careful not to let too much water from pineapple into the skillet.
6. Stir quickly with a spatula while allowing the sides of the pineapple and bell peppers to grill and brown. This should take about 3 to 5 minutes, careful not to overcook the chicken breast.
7. Serve over rice and enjoy. If you have it, add a drop or two of Bragg’s Liquid Aminos for a flavor overload!

About the Author
Kevin is a fitness enthusiast out of Dallas, TX. When he saw himself in his friend’s Facebook photo he knew it was time to make a change. He was overweight, felt sluggish and had steadily rising blood pressure. So, he did what many people try to do – he started exercising to try to “out train” a poor diet. He quickly learned through periods of weight cycling that if he was going to accomplish his fitness goals, it would have to be through a steady, healthy diet, complemented by hard work in the gym.
He started studying nutrition and got started cooking! In 2012 Kevin started a small blog to share his meals online in order to build a community around healthy food ideas.
The blog was called Fit Men Cook and it had a simple message and belief system – “Our bodies are built in the kitchen, Sculpted in the gym.”
Kevin firmly believes that healthier food options do not have to be boring. Ever. In fact, they are pretty tasty!
Fit (Wo)Men Cook is the “fit” story of all of us. It is taking your individual success stories and things (in nutrition & fitness) that have worked for you, and sharing those ideas with the masses so we can all grow, improve together. Just everyday people – no matter the fitness level or athletic ability – aiming to live the best life possible through fitness and healthy eating. Are you a Fit (Wo)Men Cook?
