Grilled chicken is one easy meal that I make over and over again but this grilled maple mustard chicken just might be my favorite version. I usually bake my maple mustard chicken but grilling it sends it over the top good.
Having some grilled chicken on hand during the week makes meal prepping a lot easier. This grilled maple mustard chicken is full of flavor that can be paired with many different sides or even re-purposed and used in a different meal. If you’re looking for a really delicious and savory recipe that is similar to this one but is paleo, try this Paleo Honey Mustard Chicken that Sheena from Noshtastic came up with!
Today I paired my chicken with a Eat Smart Wild Greens and Quinoa Salad Kit, which is one of 7 salads in the Eat Smart Gourmet Vegetable Salad Kits line. This salad is made up of kale, beet greens, julienned broccoli, carrots, red cabbage, quinoa and almonds AND comes with an avocado herb dressing. It tasted so good with my grilled chicken!
FYI- I made some bangin’ quesadillas with some of the leftover chicken. I sliced up the chicken and topped it with pepper jack cheese and fresh sliced jalapeños then smothered them in ALLTHESALSA ♥. Told you this chicken was versatile!
The other salads in the chef-inspired Eat Smart Gourmet Vegetable Salad Kits line are the Eat Smart Southwest Salad Kit, Eat Smart Sweet Kale Salad Kit (my personal favorite!), Eat Smart Beets and Greens Salad Kit, Eat Smart Roasted Yam Salad Kit, Eat Smart Ginger Bok Choy Salad Kit, and the new Eat Smart Asian Sesame Vegetable Salad Kit. So many flavors to choose from.
Bonus, each kit includes 5 or more superfoods — BOOM, you are now on the nutrition train headed straight to Nutritiousville.
But seriously, did you know that March is National Nutrition Month?
