  • 1 T Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 lb. Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
  • 2 Carrots
  • 1 Onion
  • 2 C Brown Rice (you have to cook it separately)
  • 1 14 oz Can of Pineapple Chunks in Juice
  • 1 large green or red bell pepper
  • ¼ C BBQ Sauce ( organic is better)
  • 1 t Ground Ginger
  • 1 t Adobo Seasoning
  • ½ t Ground Cloves
  • 1 ½ t Garlic Powder
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


Diet tips:

Some of Adobo seasoning contains MSG, for example Goya's Adobo All Purpose Seasoning does contain MSG. So look for brand without MSG and any artificial ingredients. Same thing for BBQ sauce.

For this reason I can recommend Frontier Naturals Adobo Seasoning or Spicely Adobo Seasoning

Using a vegetable peeler, peel the carrots. Slice in quarters lengthwise and chop into small pieces.
