Montford Grill House is a restaurant chain here in Ontario that specializes in Mediterranean cuisine. I have had many of my post-competition eats here because their menu offers such delicious, bold, tasty, flavourful items that it’s hard NOT to go here after dieting hard for a show!

One of my favorite dishes on their menu is their Montford Chicken.  It is their in house speciality consisting of boneless chicken breast grilled in pineapple and special seasoning. With 3 kids and being VERY pregnant, we decided not to head out for dinner but instead, my husband Dave decided to take it to our own kitchen and whip up a healthy, and just as flavorful version of it. It absolutely blew me away and I devoured (ok and maybe almost licked) the dish it was served on lol!

For those of you wanting to try it yourself, here is the recipe:


  • 1 Tbsp. grapeseed oil
  • 1 onion, cut up into big and small chunks
  • 2 fresh garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 Tbsp parsley
  • 2 Tbsp + 1/2 Tbsp curry powder
  • 1 Tbsp Tumeric
  • Pinch of cinammon
  • 3 boneless chicken breasts, diced
  • 2 slices natural ham, chopped natural (alternative to bacon)
  • 1/2 cup diced pineapple
  • 4 Tbsps tomato paste


  • In a deep frying pan or wok, saute onion, garlic, parsley, 2 tbsps curry, tumeric, and cinamom in the grapeseed oil on med low until onions are soft.
  • Add in chicken breast pieces and sautee until chicjken is almost cooked.
  • Add 1/2 tbsp curry, ham and pineapple, and turn heat to med-high and continue to cook for a few minutes.
  • Drain any excess juices from pan.
  • Stir in tomato paste, and cook for a few more minutes.

You can enjoy this on its own, or in a whole wheat pita, or with brown rice. You can even add hummus, non-fat Greek yogurt, or any other low fat topping to it for that extra zing.
