The Nutrition Guide that accompanies the P90X2 fitness programs is one of my favorites due to all of the awesome recipes that are contained within. Several of the recipes that I tried while going through P90X2 I still use to this day because they are so good and simple to prepare. While this recipe may have several ingredients, it really it quite simple and if my kids who range in age from 2 – 9 love the recipe, I am confident that you will as well.
Did you know that every fitness program that Beachbody creates comes with a nutrition guide filled with recipes much like this one? It’s true! This little nugget adds a great value to the fitness programs that you purchase. You can try new healthy recipes that Beachbody has put together that are specifically beneficial to your nutrition as you are going through each program. That’s pretty cool!

- 6 medium Roma tomatoes, seeded and chopped
- 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh basil leaves
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 3 cloves fresh garlic, minced
- 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp chopped fresh oregano
- 1 tbsp chopped fresh basil
- 1/2 tsp. chopped fresh thyme
- 1 tsp chopped fresh Italian parsley
- 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
For Salsa, combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Cover and chill in refrigerator until ready to serve.
For chicken breast, combine all ingredients in a large ziplock plastic bag. Shake to distribute well, seal, and marinate in refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
Preheat over to 350 degrees.
Remove chicken from bag; discard marinade. Place chicken in glass baking dish. Cover with foil and place in oven for 30 to 40 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked.
TIP: I prefer to grill the chicken myself, but if baking is more your thing you can use the oven. If you choose the grill; cook over medium high heat, about 4-6 minutes on each side or until chicken is thoroughly cooked.
Serve with salsa on top; garnish with fresh basil leaves.
I served mine with brown rice and some cut avocado. My whole family love it!!!
