I came up with this recipe shortly after we started eating the Trim, Healthy Mama way. It combines a few of our favorite flavors into one mouth-watering, plan-approved, protein-packed, tender piece of chicken.
Baking Time: 25 minutes.
Gluten-free, sugar-free, nut free, soy-free
*For anyone else who's a THMer, this staple falls under the Satisfying category.
- 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 Tbsp Truiva (or plan approved sweetener)
- 2 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp ground pepper
- 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, halved length-wise
- 2 cups sliced, fresh mushrooms
- 8 bacon strips
- 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
- fresh chives, snipped
Mix mustard, olive oil, sweetener, paprika, sea salt, and ground pepper together in a bowl. Pour into a large, sealable bag and add chicken breasts. Toss to coat evenly. Marinate in the fridge for 2 hours (the longer, the better).
Fry bacon. Set aside on paper towel to absorb the excess oil. Discard all but 1 Tbsp of bacon fat. Saute mushrooms and cook chicken until lightly golden in bacon fat.
Arrange chicken in 8x8" baking pan. Wrap each breast with two strips of bacon to from an "X". Pour mushrooms over top and sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Garnish with chives.
Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.

If you're on a mission to clean up your diet, getting your kids on board with the idea can seem impossible. If they're used to snacking on cookies, party-mix, Smarties, or packaged granola bars it can be frustrating for both of you to adopt healthier eating habits.
Thankfully, there are many scrumptious, nutritious recipes available that'll appeal to the pallet the same way junk food does. But instead of artery-clogging fats, refined sugars and flours, MSG, and simple carbohydrates, you'll be serving your child snacks that are loaded with nutrition and energy to help build a growing body.
Here are 10 snacks our kids love (and have no idea they're good for them!):
1. Gluten-Free Cinnamon Raisin Flax Muffins
3. Snicker Snackers
4. Apples or Bananas with Peanut or Almond Butter
5. Raw vegetables with natural, homemade salad dressing.
6. Yogurt or kefir, with berries and raw honey
7. Skinny Chocolate from Trim Healthy Mama
8. Cottage Berry Whip from Trim Healthy Mama
9. Peppermint Patties
10. Trail Mix.
