Hi! This is my first day and I'm staring at the chicken breasts I bought wondering how I should cook them. I usually fry them with a little olive oil or butter, or poach them in white wine with onion and garlic. What's a legal, yummy, quick way to cook a few breasts? I'd like to be able to make a meal out of them, or have them available for the next couple of days. Thank you!..

My favorite way is to grill them with a touch of olive oil and salt and pepper. I pound them flat just a little bit so they cook evenly and then I have leans for the whole week. I count the olive oil as my healthy fat..

Or my other favorite way is baked in the oven topped with salsa. Depending on how many condiments I have available/want to use, I may top with a little bit of low fat cheese during cooking or a dab of low fat sour cream afterwards...

I sometimes cut mine up and marninate them in italian salad dressing, then "stir fry" them and add broccoli and red pepper strips.... it's delish !!!..

Comment #2

I often marinate them in balsamic, and then bake them covered with tin foil and cut into strips to serve on top of red, green and yellow peppers. I have also baked chicken, then sauteed it with a bit of olive oil, red pepper and lime juice and wrapped the chicken and some other veggies in a romaine lettuce leaf as a faux burrito/taco..

I normally cut them in in chunks and saute them in a pan with rotisserie seasoning. Quick and easy and taste good...

If you like taco salads and have other people in your family to feed, this might be a good option for you. I make this crock pot chicken/black bean/cream cheese recipe occasionally and my kids and hubby love it..

What I do to make it OK for me is pull out my chicken prior to adding the cream cheese. I also scoop out any beans or corn that might make it into my bowl. I shred the chicken, and then it can be used as a base for a taco salad. You can add shredded lettuce, tomatoes, light cheese (if you adjust the ounces of chicken accordingly) and top with a little taco sauce and/or light sour cream if you have the condiments available. Yummy!..

I got this giant bottle of Taco seasoning mix from Costco, which has become my favorite seasoning. It's 3g carbs/20 calories for 2 tsp. 1/2 tsp s/b enough for one serving of chicken. Coat then grill or bake. yumm..

I use lots of fresh herbs. lightly coated with EVOO and then grilled!..

Can someone tell me please is crab meat or canned tuna allowed and how much of it. I want to put it in my salad.

I love to sprinkle a little hidden valley Italian powder dressing mix on my chicken the a bit of pam and fry it then cut it up cold and have a great chicken salad...

I just tried this and really liked it..

I put 5 chicken breasts into a Pyrex cake pan sprayed with Pam. Salt and pepper and a sprinkle of garlic powder. I drizzled 3 T of balsamic vinegar over them and then added about a cup of water. Baked at 375 degrees for a half hour. Yummy! Gives a little of a wine flavor. You might try it with Red Wine vinegar...

I love boneless, skinless chicken breasts sprinkled with cinnamon and thrown on the grill. It's not sweet like you'd think cinnamon might be, but very exotic and delicious...

Time Savor Gourmet's Cinnamon Chipotle Rub on the BBQ grill- or my George Forman grill if I"m short on time. Super yum & super fast...

Grilled with SF BBQ sauce.

Stuffed - Cutlets stuffed with LF ricotta cheese and spinach.

Marinated in Lawry's Mexican Chile & Lime and made into tacos (use lettuce for your "shell").

Chicken Alfredo - Chicken pan sauteed, Laughing cow cheese, no sodium broth and zucchini curls for the noodles.

Chicken stir fried with Broccoli slaw.

I eat a lot of chicken and shrimp lol...
