Have I got a YUMMIE recipe for y'all today ladies. This is VERY "diet" friendly no matter what plan you follow (might have to tweak it for low carb, etc). As you know, I am on the HCG Protocol and THIS meal is perfect for P2 (Phase 2).
Since it was Chinese New Year yesterday I wanted to make something that had a very "Chinese food" feel. I ran across a recipe for Spicy Orange Chicken that was perrrrrfect. I did not make this recipe up, myself, I found it on the HCG YouTube community from a gal named SoCalSunnyBunny. I then put my own touches to it and it was so darned yummie that I can not even explain it.
HCG Spicy Orange Chicken (P2 friendly)
juice from 1 medium orange
4 Tbsp lemon juice (about 1/2 a lemon)
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
.5 tsp ginger
dash of cinnamon
cayenne pepper (to taste...I used LOTS)
splenda (or preferred sweetener to taste...I used about a packet)
500 grams of sliced chicken breast (I used Tyson cooked sliced chicken breast)
Mix all of the ingredients with the exception of the chicken. Bring to a boil in a skillet. Throw in the COOKED chicken breast and let simmer while coating the meat.
I served this over VERY spicy cabbage and oh boy was it good.
Another option that my Hubbie enjoyed was the chicken mixture wrapped in a cabbage leaf.
This recipe made 5 P2 serving (100 grams of chicken each) I used a medium head of cabbage.
