Bamboo Skewers soaked in water for 30 min

4 Skinless Boneless Chicken Breast or thighs

1/2 cup Thai Sweet Chili Sauce

2 Tbsp Finely Grated Fresh Ginger

Zest & Juice of a Whole Lime

1 tsp Paprika

1 tsp Ground Turmeric

1 tsp Mrs. Dash Chicken Spice

1 Tbsp Mayonnaise

1 Red Bell Pepper cut into 1″ squares

1 Sweet Onion cut into 1″ pieces


Cut each chicken breast into 6 pieces (should about 1-1/2″ each) set aside into a bowl. Meanwhile make the sweet chili marinade. Combine all the ingredients from Thai Sweet Chili sauce to the mayo. Whisk until smooth. Pour 3/4 of the marinade onto the chicken so each piece is coated.

Refrigerate for 15-30 min. Then assemble the skewers first goes the onion then pepper then a piece of chicken. Repeat. Place on a baking sheet lined with foil greased lightly with cooking spray. Broil on high for 7 min then baste the skewers with the rest of the marinade, turn over, baste again and broil for an additional 3-4 min.

Turn off the broiler and put them into the hot oven for about 7 min. ( this is assuming that your broiler and oven is in one appliance). Then cover the skewers with foil and let them steam for 5 min on top of the stove grills without the heat on. Enjoy! These skewers will go well with any side dish. I served them with steamed black mahogany rice.

1 package- Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
1/2 cup -Dijon mustard
1/4 cup- Maple syrup
1 Tablespoon – Rice wine vinegar

Preheat your oven to 400ºF.

Then, mix together 1/2 cup of dijon mustard, 1/4 cup of maple syrup, and 1 tablespoon of rice wine vinegar.
Put a package of chicken into an oven-proof baking dish. Pour your maple mustard mixture over them, turning the breasts in the mixture so they are fully coated. Sprinkle with paprika.
Put the chicken into the oven, and let them bake for 30 minutes. Baste the tops of the chicken with more sauce half way through. Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes before serving. Plate the chicken, making sure to spoon some extra sauce over the top. Sprinkle over some fresh rosemary. If there is ever a time to use fresh herbs, THIS IS IT! The flavors are just so good together. Enjoy the savory goodness of this meal!

Turkey Sloppy Joe

January 5th, 2012 | Posted by Milana in Lunch/Dinner - (0 Comments)

This a kid-friendly, fast, easy not- to- mention TASTY recipe! I fooled a couple of my guy friends who thought these were made with ground beef after they devoured them. They weren’t able to tell the difference after I had mentioned that I used lean ground turkey.If you love traditional Sloppy Joe’s and want to try a healthier version with the same great taste, this would be your ideal match!

*original recipe was found on





  • 1 pound ground turkey breast
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup organic ketchup
  • 3 tablespoons barbecue sauce (I use Bulls Eye Original)
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 whole wheat hamburger buns, split


In a nonstick skillet, cook the turkey and onion for 5 minutes or until turkey is no longer pink. Add the next seven ingredients; simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve on buns with a side of steamed green beans or asparagus!
