10 Bariatric Approved Chicken Recipe Hacks

Updated: Jan 22, 2020

Grilled chicken is one of my favorite healthy dinners, but it doesn’t have to be bland. All it takes is a few simple steps and tasty ingredients! Let's get cooking!



  1. Balsamic Grilled Chicken with Spicy Honey Bacon Glaze – My hack for this recipe is subbing agave nectar or molasses for brown sugar. This is super easy and only 4 Ingredients!

  2. Grilled Greek Lemon Chicken – this chicken is so easy to prepare and it’s deliciously flavorful! I like to sub Avocado oil for the olive oil!

  3. Grilled Hawaiian Chicken with Coconut Rice – An awesome grilled chicken recipe, I would obviously not cook the rice because of the carbs and substitute the brown sugar with Molasses, agave nectar or maple syrup.

  4. Sweet & Tangy Grilled Chicken – Chicken marinated in cider vinegar, dijon mustard, garlic, lemon, lime and sugar. THE BEST! We make this at least 3 times a month. I use all ingredients and substitute molasses, agave nectar or maple syrup for Brown Sugar

  5. Grilled Bruschetta Chicken – Only 5 ingredients. We add a splash of balsamic vinegar for some more flavor.

  6. Grilled Cheesy Buffalo Chicken – Grilled spicy chicken breast stuffed with mozzarella cheese. I substitute Stubb’s Sugar free or original Barbecue sauce for the hot sauce because my stomach is sensitive since my procedure and I can’t do spicy things anymore.

  7. Sticky Honey Lime Grilled Chicken ~ So good…everyone will love it! I use rice vinegar instead of Apple cider Vinegar and I also only use 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder as 2 tablespoons is too spicy for me.
