A variety of Chicken ideas

  • 5 lbs of chicken breasts no skin, no bones cut in half to make cooking times faster.
    marinate in: Olive Oil (not alot), balsamic vinegar (alot!) gluten free Italian Seasoning and fresh pressed Garlic (like 5 huge cloves)

    Marinate 4-5 hours then grill it all up! You can pack it up in individual containers with veggies and 1/2 sweet potatoe etc.

  • marinate over night in a mixture of 1 tbs Olive Oil, 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, gluten free Italian Seasoning, oregano, pimiento seeds, any hot pepper(seed removed), crushed garlic and sliced onions.
    The next day, either, grill, bake or stew it.
  • marinate it as indicated above possibly including several fresh herbs such as rosemary, thyme, tarragon, italian seasonings...whatever you are in the mood to use. Marinate it for 12 hours up to 24 hours. Then you can either : grill it slowly so it is cooked and tender; or make garlic chicken by baking it in the oven; or Crockpot chicken with chicken stock, seasoning on low all day: or on the stovetop, sear it for stirfry cooking, adding either chicken stock or vegetable stock into your pan with your veggies.

  • Another GREAT marinade is:
    1 Tbl Olive oil
    3 Tbl lime juice
    1 clove minced garlic
    1/2 tsp Cumin
    1/2 Tbl chopped cilantro (optional)
    Serves 4 Cal. 35, Fat 3.5, Carb 0, Protien 0.

    Can use on chicken or halibut. Four pieces.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
