Housewife on a Diet: HCG Spicy Orange Chicken (P2 Friendly)

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.

Happy Homemaking,
