This is great for the VLCD or anytime. It’s boneless, skinless, chicken breast, cut up and fried in about 10 minutes. This is super easy and very tasty.
Add 2-3 teaspoons of coconut oil to your frying pan at medium heat and toss in 1/2 of a chopped onion. Cut up about 2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken and add to the pan.
Top with a sweet and spicy Caribbean spice blend. I like Margaritaville Calypso Rub. I found it at Target, but it’s also for sale on Amazon. I don’t like a lot of heat, so I only used about 1/2 teaspoon for the whole 2 pounds of chicken. It’s recommended on the bottle to be used for Burgers, Chicken, Shrimp and Pork Chops.
The ingredients listed are sea salt, sugar, spices, orange peel, garlic, rice concentrate as an anti-caking agent and onion (all natural). It’s also Gluten Free. The fat is O, and sugar or carbs less than 1 gram in 1/2 teaspoon. The sugar is so small and spread out over 2 pounds of chicken is going to be so small per serving, it will not harm anything to do with the diet and losing well.
Directions: Fry in coconut oil until browned and done. If you like, you could add some sliced red or green fresh pepper for color and flavor. The chicken makes a great topping for salad or you can nibble on it by itself. Serve with a steamed vegetable if desired. Add some sliced cucumbers or a sliced tomato and you have a great meal. Have some fruit on the side or for dessert.
Divide your chicken up into appropriate servings for the VLCD and save in your refrigerator or freezer or serve the rest to your family at dinner time. I like having a serving in the refrigerator to eat cold at another time. Hot or cold, it’s delicious.
Stats: Boneless skinless chicken breast is 130 calories in 4 ounces before cooking. Fat is 3 grams, O carbohydrate and 24 grams of protein. 3.5 ounces before cooking is the correct amount per “Pounds and Inches” for anyone doing the HCG VLCD (very low calorie diet), but I found 4 ounces easier to estimate and measure and having slightly more protein on the diet seems to work well for many.
My estimated measuring is this. Two pounds of chicken is 32 ounces. Divide by 4 for 4 ounces per serving, and you would have 8 servings for the VLCD. If you divide the pan of chicken into 8 sections of meat, just approximately, you can easily take out 2 or more servings to save for yourself and serve the rest to family members. (By the way, the amount of chicken used in this picture was only 1.8 pounds.)
