HI!
I took the online blueprint for the 6 week body makeover last night, and because of the body type it says I am....I am suppose to stay away from Red Meat : ( and focus on lean chicken, turkey, and seafood (I only eat crab and clams). So I was wondering if anyone has any simple to make recipes for chicken. My family gets sick of eating chicken, so I figure if I make something new and exciting, maybe I won't get the grumbles from them. We are red meat eaters, and although I have cut out ground beef (haven't had any since January)...we still eat red meat at least 1 time per week. So any easy to do, yummy recipes would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks!
DAWN

Hi! I am not sure what things you can eat with your chicken and what you can't, but we eat chicken quite regularly and one of our favorites is this, I make it using all light or fat free ingredients:

4-5 chicken breasts
1 can low-fat cream of mushroom soup
1 small container of low-fat or FF sour cream
4 slices turkey bacon

Wrap raw chicken in turkey bacon. Mix all soup and sour cream together in a bowl, pour over chicken. You can cook it in a crockpot on low for several hours (which is what I do) or bake it at a low temp (like 250) for a few hours for VERY tender chicken. It is really yummy. I always remove the turkey bacon before eating.

-We also use a lot of marinades and grill our chicken on the grill with fresh veggies. We especially love the 30 Minute Marinades by Lawry's.

-You could also put some BBQ sauce over chicken in the crockpot and cook until done, serve with a side salad and other veggies.

-I also take taco seasoning, water and a bunch of chicken breasts and cook them in the crockpot and shred the chicken when done. You have instant chicken for chicken tacos, chicken taco salad, a chicken wrap, etc.

Hope this helps, we eat a ton of chicken!

ETA: I forgot that I do not add crm of chx to the first recipe, it is just crm of mushroom and sour cream over the chicken. Sorry!Edited by: mommytotwo

I also get Cooking Light magazine in the mail, it is a wonderful magazine full of low-fat meals. I am going to include a link to their online site with recipes just for poultry. HTH
