Bodacious Brazilian Chicken

Here is the recipe for Bodacious Brazilian Chicken.

This is from ‘The New Abs Diet” book.


1 lemon

1 lime

1 tbsp ground flaxseed

1-8 oz can tomato sauce

1 can (6 oz.) frozen orange juice concentrate (I bought 12 oz and used the other half for the quinoa)

1 and a half garlic, minced

1 tsp dried Italian seasoning

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (I found boneless, skinless chicken breast chunks at the store and used it instead)

1 tsp hot pepper sauce

1/4 cup chunky salsa


1. GrateĀ  the zest of the lemon and lime into a resealable bag. Squeeze the juice from both fruits into the bag, discard pulp and seeds

2. Mix in everything else except the chicken and salsa

3. Drop the chicken, reseal the bag and refrigerate for a few hours.

4. Grill the chicken, turning and basting with marinade a few times, for 10-15 minutes or until the center is no longer pink. Serve with Salsa

I added a mixed green salad and orange flavored quinoa. We probably refrigerated it for only an hour. I might recommend overnight refrigeration for a really deep flavor, but ours was decent. The kids gave it a so-so rating. They thought it was orange chicken if that tells you anything. I give it a rating of 2.5 stars out of 5.
