Mustard Sage Grilled Chicken

Sage is such a mighty herb with its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antimicrobial as well as anxiolytic (reduces anxiety) properties, according to Holistic Herbalist.com. At this time of year with our potential to over eat and be over stressed, it seems like an important herb to incorporate in our diets.

I made a mustard and sage grilled chicken (286 cal) that fit the need the other night. The cornerstone of the recipe is the sage pesto (see my blog two days ago) you marinate the chicken in for 4 hours prior to grilling. This makes the chicken flavorful and moist. Pesto can be highly caloric, however, this recipe has about one-third the fat and calories of this standard Italian sauce.

To complete the meal I made a Mediterranean Lentil Salad (serving size: 1 cup/206 cal) for a total calorie count of 492 for the meal. It was a delicious and flavorful meal. A definite repeat.
