Chobani Overload & A Recipe

Posted: February 3, 2011 at 12:47 pm

Thank you all so much for the thoughts on my internal dilemma. I’m still processing it all and will let you know my final thoughts soon. I certainly appreciate that all of you continue to believe in me and don’t see it as losing credibility. I can tell its a topic many feel strongly about and your continued support means a lot. Thank you.

On to more fun topics. Like food. Check out my fridge right now…

I wish I was kidding. Actually, no I don’t. I love this stuff! You see…I typically shop for my groceries at Kroger. They had Chobani 10 for $10 this week, so I bought 10. Then, I heard from my sister-in-law that Publix also had a 10 for $10 sale. They have all the good flavors! So…*cough cough*…I made a little pit stop after the gym to check what they had available. NEW FLAVORS!!!

Yea. I bought more. I don’t go to Publix often so I had to take advantage of new flavors for sale. You know you would do the same thing. Don’t deny it! Then…the very next day…a package showed up on my doorstep. It was from Chobani. They sent me the new flavors to try, as well as some of their new kid flavors for M.

And although it tempts me to just eat Greek yogurt for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, I have managed to consume regular meals. I even discovered a couple new dishes to love in the process. Like this sandwich I tossed together for lunch yesterday…

egg sandwich

An egg with a blue cheese laughing cow wedge, tomato, and spinach on my favorite 9 grain bakery bread. When I don’t have leftovers for lunch I usually turn to sandwiches. I discovered that eggs totally beat turkey for a sandwich filler.

I also found a new recipe to whip up for dinner. I made it Tuesday night and it was a total hit! Cooking Light inspired me with this recipe.

Spicy Honey Chicken

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 6 TBSP honey
  • 2 tsp cider vinegar

Cut the chicken breasts into one inch chunks.

Wash hands thoroughly and prepare the spice rub by mixing the garlic powder, chili powder, salt, cumin, paprika, and red pepper in a medium sized bowl. Put chicken in bowl and toss to coat in spice blend.

Heat a skillet over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray or add a teaspoon of oil. Cook chicken 5-10 minutes in the skillet until cooked through.

While the chicken is cooking, mix the honey and cider vinegar together in another small dish. When chicken finishes cooking, pour the honey/vinegar mixture over and toss to coat.

Serve it up! Roasted brussels always make an excellent side.

  1. I’ve never had Chobani, and Im so sad about it. I dont think we have it in Canada, and if we do, its nowhere near me.

  2. The honey banana kid Chobani sounds really good! My family is going through a barbecue chicken phase, so we are enjoying the flavors of bbq sauce and honey. A lot.

  3. LindseyAnn says:

    Chobani was 10 for 10 at our grocery store yesterday! It took so much effort to walk away (we were on a mission for certain items, no wiggle room or Greek Yogurt indulgences allowed:( )
    It’s not really a flavor combo per se, but I’m really in to bananas lately. Plain, in my yogurt, with toast, bananas bananas bananas!

  4. Do you like the new flavored yogurts??

    I love savory and sweet flavors together….like BBQ chicken pizza…so savory and so sweet! Yum!

    • Tina says:

      The mango is amazing and the lemon was great too…although not as lemony as I expected. I still haven’t gotten a black cherry though. :(

  5. That is a lot of Chobani!! Enjoy! I think eggs are the best sandwich filler. I probably eat eggs in some form almost every day!

  6. Helen says:

    I love yogurt! I agree with you on the eggs, I love my egg sandwiches.

  7. You go girl with all that Chobani!! I am jealous and need to keep an eye out for $1 sales, I havent seen that in awhile with the Cho :(

    I am loving Laughing cow on baked potatoes. I tried it the other night and absolutely love it!

  9. Spicy honey chicken looks amazing!

    And 10 for 10 for Chobani is an awesome deal! I just heard about these kid flavors…I need to find them for the girls! They LOVE yogurt!

  10. Yum… The recipe looks really good!

    Unfortunately Chobani yogurt isn’t available here in Canada. I tried it for my first time yesterday.. my parents brought me some home from the States. I really liked it and would LOVE to try more flavors (I tried the vanilla). I wish they would sell the product here in Canada!!

  11. So jealous of all that yogurt! I eat it so much that I’m always running out!

  12. I need to make some brussel sprouts STAT

  13. Kathleen says:

    I just found the Black Cherry flavor and I’m in love. Seeing lemon makes me all giddy. Can’t wait to try that too!
