Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes

Marinate: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

1 1/2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar

1/2 tbsp. honey

One 4.5-oz. raw boneless skinless chicken breast cutlet

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

1/4 tsp. onion powder

Dash each salt and black pepper

1 cup high-fiber veggies (like sugar snap peas, red bell pepper, and/or carrots)

1/4 tsp. salt-free seasoning mix (like Dash)

1/2 cup sliced onion

1/4 cup chopped mango

1/2 tsp. chopped garlic

1 oz. (about 2 tbsp.) chopped avocado

Directions:

In a small bowl, combine vinegar, honey, and 1 tbsp. water. Mix until uniform. Transfer to a large sealable bag.

Season chicken with garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Add to the bag and seal, removing as much air as possible. Marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes.

In a medium microwave-safe bowl, combine high-fiber veggies with 2 tbsp. water. Microwave for 3 minutes, or until softened. Drain excess water, and sprinkle with salt-free seasoning. Cover to keep warm.

Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Add chicken, and discard excess marinade. Cook for 5 minutes. Flip chicken, and add onion. Stirring onion occasionally, cook for about 5 more minutes, until chicken is cooked through and blackened and onion has softened.

Add mango and garlic, and cook and stir until hot and fragrant, about 1 minute.

Serve topped with avocado and alongside steamed veggies.
