Weight Loss Motivation Comes with a Healthy Choice Recipe

RECAP: The Colic Calm Mom Reveals Her Weight Loss Motivation and Shares a Healthy Choice Recipe

Here's what Colic Calm mom Jacqueline Lawrence does when it comes to grilling – Yummy and delicious, vegetable-filled Coconut Chicken Kebabs (or Kebobs, if you wish)

Coconut Chicken Kebabs Recipe

Use Organic Ingredients to rip the benefits of all Vitamins and Minerals

1 1⁄4 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (use organic free-range chickens)
1⁄2 lb. fresh pineapple
1 large green bell pepper
1can light coconut milk (14 oz.)
1⁄2 cup sugar
1 jalepeƱo, seeded and diced (or less if your kids don't like spicy)
1 tsp. kosher salt
Juice of 1 lime

Preheat grill to medium-high.

Prepare chicken, pineapple, and bell pepper, cutting each into 2-inch chunks (you'll need 12 pieces of chicken and 8 pieces each of pineapple and bell pepper). Place chunks in a large resealable plastic bag.

Combine coconut milk, sugar, jalapeƱos, salt, and lime juice for the marinade in a glass measuring cup with a pour spout. Add half the marinade to the bag and let stand for 15 minutes; reserve remaining marinade for basting the kebabs.

Alternately thread 3 pieces of chicken and 2 pieces each of pineapple and bell pepper onto  soaked wooden skewers, starting and ending with chunks of chicken. Repeat with remaining chicken, pineapple, and bell pepper to make 4 kebabs.

Grill kebabs, covered, until chicken is cooked through, 8–10 minutes per side, basting with reserved marinade every 3 minutes.
