Chicken and quinoa are both high in protein, this recipe is great if you are trying to build lean muscle or lose fat. The vegetables and olive oil add the rest of the nutrients you need to make this a complete meal.

All you need is 1 large zucchini (55) calories, 1 teaspoon of olive oil (40) calories, 2 tablespoons chopped onion (8) calories, ¼ cup of chopped carrots (13) calories, and ¼ cup of corn kernels (33) calories, 3 ounces of chicken breast (93) calories, ½ cup of cooked quinoa (111) calories, a pinch of salt (1) calorie, and a pinch of pepper (1) calories. Total 355 calories.

Grill three ounces of chicken breast in a non stick pan, remember to cook both sides evenly so that the chicken cooks all the way through. Remove the ends of the zucchini and cut it in half. Chop the onion and carrots. Grill the zucchini with a teaspoon of olive oil in another non stick pan. Grill both sides, the zucchini will get softer and you will be able to stick a fork through it easily, that is when it is done cooking. Remove the zucchini from the heat. Add the chopped onion, carrots and the corn kernels to the pan to saute in the left over oil. When the chicken is done cooking, remove it from the heat and chop it. When the onion begins to look clear and the carrots become softer the vegetables are done cooking. Mix the carrots, corn, chopped chicken and onion in one cup of cooked quinoa, you can add some olive oil to the quinoa if you would like, just remember to account for the calories. Add a pinch of salt and pepper and mix the well. Serve the grilled zucchini on the side. Enjoy.
