  • 2 cups shredded red cabbage

  • ½ of a fresh pineapple, peeled, cored and chopped

  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar

  • 4 teaspoons packed brown sugar

  • 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons jerk seasoning

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (1 to 1 1/4 pounds total)


  1. For pineapple slaw, in a very large bowl combine bok choy, cabbage and pineapple. In a small bowl combine cider vinegar and 2 teaspoons of the brown sugar. Drizzle over bok choy mixture; toss to coat. Set aside.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
