Want to know how to make some of my yummy–and healthy-minded–fangating fare?  Here are the recipes!

Ingredients:

  • 4 burger buns (I prefer whole wheat)

  • 4 skinless chicken breast fillets

  • 2 cups baby spinach

  • 1-2 sprigs of rosemary, finely chopped

  • 1 cup of 2% reduced fat Greek yogurt

  • 3 peaches, sliced long, wide, and thin (1/4 inch)

  • Lawry’s Seasoned Salt

  • Sea salt

  • Black Pepper

  • Lemon Juice

  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Directions:

  1. In a bowl, mix the Greek yogurt with the rosemary, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, a pinch of the sea salt, and a pinch of black pepper.

  2. Put aside.

  3. Season both sides of each chicken fillet with a pinch (what fits between your thumb and pointer fingertips) of Lawry’s and black pepper Sprinkle with lemon juice (to taste–you can always add more lemon juice while the chicken cooks).

  4. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.

  5. Add in the chicken fillets and cook until about 2/3 of the way done.

  6. Then move the chicken fillets to the grill/stovetop grill pan to finish cooking and to give the chicken the classic grill markings. (Cook until golden brown and there are dark [but not burned] grill marks).

  7. Now it’s time to build your burger. Spread the Greek yogurt aioli on a bun, top with the chicken, peach slices, and baby spinach. (You can also add a soft, white cheese if you’d like).

  8. Top with the other half of the bun and serve!
