Chicken is usually something that is on our weekly menu at least 2 to 3 times a week. If I am not careful, plain chicken can get boring real quick and leave my family running from the dinner table. My new Grilled Lime Chicken Breasts with Mango Pineapple Salsa is sure to save you for from the same boring chicken dinner.

This recipe is both savory and sweet and serves as the perfect light summertime lunch or dinner. Not only does this salsa pair nicely with chicken, but it is also great with pork chops, steaks and even plantain or tortilla chips.

In addition, I have been know to grab a spoon and sit down and eat it like a meal….It’s that addicting and yummy. But the possibilities really are endless with this salsa. Pop it on protein, top it on salads, or eat it with a spoon, you can’t go wrong.

Like I mentioned earlier, plain chicken can get really boring and can lack flavor. I like to shake things up by marinating my chicken in different marinades overnight that infuses the meat with a ton of great flavor. Not only does the marinade add flavor, but it also allows the chicken to be super tender and juicy after cooking.

The marinade I used for Grilled Lime Chicken Breasts with Mango Pineapple Salsa is super simple, yet powerful in flavor. I combined olive oil, a whole lime, juiced, Tajin seasoning and a couple of garlic cloves.

How long will this last in the fridge?

Storing the salsa and chicken separately will allow this recipe to be enjoyed longer. For the salsa, I would say store no longer than 4 days and no longer than 7 days for the chicken. This recipe would actually serve as a yummy grab and go lunch to enjoy throughout the week.

Is it necessary to marinate the chicken overnight?

This is where all the flavor comes from. Giving the meat time to soak up flavorful liquid allows it to be more tender and juicy once cooked.

In my opinion through experience, using a marinade can add a lot of flavor to any protein, especially chicken. In this case I’m using the marinade mainly for flavor. I’d recommend marinating the chicken for 6 to 12 hours or overnight for optimal flavor and taste.

(AD) With the back-to-school season right around the corner, life can get pretty busy. I'm here to help with a quick and easy lunchbox idea featuring @StarKistCharlie Hot Buffalo Style Tuna Creation Pouch. If you are not a fan of spicy, don't fear, these little pouches come in 23+ varieties and you can find them in the tuna aisle in the grocery store or online. Most of the pouches have 10g+ lean protein per single-serve pouch and 110 calories or less. I love serving these with my favorite fruits and veggies to make them a complete lunch or snack. These pouches are also great for a post-workout protein-filled snack. Just tear it open and eat straight from the pouch. #EverydayGoals

Every year I let the girls pick out a theme for their birthday cakes and I try to make it magical. This year Eloise wanted a chocolate cake with watercolor buttercream along with pink and teal macarons. It turned out better than I imagined and Eloise absolutely love it!!!

🧁For the buttercream, I used my recipe that is located on my site. You can also find it in my profile

🍰As for the cake, I  used my box cake mix hack. This is seriously my favorite way to make a cake because it tastes straight from the bakery. See the hack below

✨Follow the box cake mix instructions but with these changes 
Tip 1 Add one more egg (or add 2 if you want it to be very rich)
Tip 2 Use melted butter instead of oil and double the amount
Tip 3 Use milk instead of water
Tip 4 if using for cupcakes fill 3/4 of cupcake liners with the mix.
✨Bake according to the box and remove it two minutes early and let them sit for a couple of minutes in the tin. ✨Remove and allow them to cool

🍓I used Bonne Maman Strawberry Jam for the middle
