Quick (and Healthy) Super Bowl or NBA Finals Grub

You role you eyes upon hearing that your home has been drafted to watch the Super Bowl or the much anticipated final game in the NBA Finals – and food is your biggest issue. Either you’re a woman that refuses to let one get together gain back what you worked the last two weeks to lose. Or you’re a man that refuses to let the guys find out that you’re currently working on ‘getting your sexy back’. No fear, you can satisfy your company’s appetite and still eat healthy at the same time. Here is a great recipe for a Grilled Chicken and Pineapple Sandwich provided by Women’s Health Magazine.

Grilled Chicken and Pineapple Sandwich


Makes 4 servings; Per serving: 387 calories, 13g fat, 29g carbs, 703mgsodium, 3g fiber, 36g protein

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (4 to 6 oz each)

4 pineapple slices (1/2-inch thick)

¼ cup pickled jalapeno slices, or 1 fresh jalapeno, thinly sliced

Teriyaki sauce

4 slices Swiss cheese

4 whole-wheat Kaiser Rolls

½ medium red onion, thinly sliced

  1. In a small bowl, drench and coat chicken in teriyaki sauce, seal in Ziploc plastic bag. Refrigerator for 30 minutes (no more than 12 hours).

  2. Prepare an outdoor charcoal, gas, or electric grill, or oven broiler. Remove chicken from marinade and arrange chicken on an oiled rack, or on a greased foil-lined broiler pan. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes, turning once, and immediately top each chicken breast with cheese. Once cheese has melted, and chicken is lightly charred and firm to touch, remove from grill or oven broiler.

  3. Arrange pineapple and rolls on grill or broiler pan. Cook rolls until they’re lightly toasted and pineapple slices until slightly browned and warmed through, about 2 minutes per side. Top each roll with chicken, pineapple, red onion, and jalapeno slices and serve immediately.
