Island Chicken

Well, if you are a frequent blog visitor you know that pretty much all that our diet consists of is CHICKEN. This is actually a recipe for pork tenderloin, I just subbed the chicken in to make it more husband-friendly. Talk about a moist, uber-flavorful chicken breast...here you go. Not to mention a 3 minute prep! Got to love that! As we were eating it we kept saying how good this chicken would be on a salad, in a burrito, with rice, with pretty much anything. The next time that I make my Cafe Rio Burritos I may offer this as an alternative to the pork that is usually served! Not to mention that this is P90X friendly...I love healthy, filling meals! (P.S. you might think that this is spicy, but don't be afraid! The brown sugar balances it out and it is perfectly mild!)

Adapted From: P90X

16 ounces chicken breasts (or pork tenderloin)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. chile powder
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 Tbs. garlic, chopped
1/2 Tbs. tabasco sauce(I omitted this)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir together all ingredients and dredge each side of chicken. Place chicken in a roasting pan and bake in the oven for 20 minutes. 

Serves 4.

That looks really tasty.
How any does this serve? I'm going to have to make it...

So, I thought this looked really good, so I made it for dinner tonight. And I'm sorry to say my husband and I both don't feel well, not in a bad-food-consumption way but a whoah-what-just-happened-to-my-stomach way. I think it's the combination of brown sugar with Mexican spices that does not go over well, and my husband loves hot/spicy food.

So, just wanted to warn people that the flavor combo is definitely not for everybody, even if it does look good.

Lots of other good-looking recipes on here! I was just really disappointed with this one. Sorry. :/

Kacie-I'm so sorry that you didn't like this meal! It definitely has a lot of spices going on...we enjoy it but I can see why it wouldn't be for everyone. Please try a few other of my dishes...they aren't all this wild:) Thanks for stopping by!
