One thing I started doing in 2015 was getting rid of red meat and skins and fatty parts which is most probably the most delicious part in meat and started religiously eating chicken breasts so might as well try to make it pleasing to my taste buds. I looked up recipes that are healthy because it would be useless for me to eat chicken breast if I don't prepare it the healthy way and ended up wanting a Thai chicken but with a little modification of the recipe.

I spent the whole December reading about eating clean so I know what to add and not in my dishes. So here's my healthy recipe:

First we start we start with the marinade, so we are going to need:

1 chicken breast, cut in cubes
1 lemon, halved
1 medium tomato, diced
1 medium onion, diced
5 cloves of garlic, minced (the more, the better as it just not adds to the flavor but also is a potential anti hypertensive.
1 cup greek yogurt 
2 tsp turmeric powder or according to your preference. The more, the better, because turmeric is a very healthy spice, as it is a natural blood thinner, good for the circulation and dissolving clots in your blood vessels.
1 tsp coriander powder
Chili powder depends on your tolerance to spicy food, but this is also, the more the better! :)
Black pepper and Salt to taste, preferably TOO LITTLE SALT or No salt because the yoghurt and spices can give the flavor
1 thumb ginger

1. squeeze the lemon and massage on the chicken
2. add all the spices and massage on the chicken to the taste would stick to the chicken instead of the marinade
3. add the greek yogurt and the rest of the ingredients
4. leave the mixture in the ref for 10-20 minutes and preheat oven at the same time at 150degree Celsius.
5. after preheating, brush the oven tray with olive oil 
6. add the mixture on the tray
7. bake until chicken and veggies are cooked around 15-20 mins. you decide whether you want it saucy, semi saucy or dry. as for me I prefer it a bit dry 
8. before you take the thai chicken from the oven, add 1 sliced cucumber and let it be for 2 mins so as not to make the cucumber soggy as it is a water-based veggy.

after all that, you're ready to serve it. there's the actual photo above. :) It's very simple and fast to prepare and healthy eating wouldn't have to be that bad. Happy Eating!
