Plain old chicken is boring. But if you're a busy guy, you might think that you don't have time to cook such a flavorful meal. There's where you're wrong.

This stir-fry combines the tanginess of the pineapple and orange juice with onion, black pepper, and olive oil to deliver a dinner that not only tastes delicious, but serves up a whopping 52g of protein as well.

What You Need:

  • 1/4 cup diced onion

  • pinch of black pepper

  • 1 tsp olive oil

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes

  • 1 Tbsp orange juice

  • 1 8-oz can diced pineapple

  • 1 Tbsp butter

How to Make It:

  1. In a skillet over medium heat, cook the onion, black pepper, and olive oil for a minute, until the onion is slightly browned.

  2. Add the chicken-breast cubes, orange juice, and pineapple, stirring as you do.

  3. Once it all comes to a boil, immediately reduce to medium heat and add the butter. Stir, and simmer over low heat for 5 minutes. Serve as is or over a small bed of rice if desired.
