For meal #1 I'll have a large chicken breast, Coach's Oats (Steel cut oats) with either berries, banana, or a table spoon of Agave. (Agave is super low on the glycemic index. Much lower than honey or even an apple. This stuff burns super slow)

#2, 3, & 4, sometimes 5: Large chicken breast, 2 cups or more of Jasmine Rice with tomatoes or bell peppers or just Cholula, and/or half a large baked Yam (plain), or 3 small red-skinned potatoes.

Sometimes I add an avacado when I feel the need for some good fat, or substitute another bowl of Coach's Oats instead of rice.

Or, I chop the chicken breast and place it in at least 4 corn tortillas (usually La Tolteca brand because they do not add sugar or phosphoric acid-which robs your minerals) In my tacos I add sliced tomatoes, shredded purple cabbage, shredded carrots (my cheese substitute), and either some green or red salsa.

At various times I consume either Brown Rice Pasta, or Yellow Corn Pasta for my carbs. They taste great without the bloating of wheat, and are an awesome source of good energy! I usually add some organic pasta sauce for more flavor, and mix in the chopped chicken breast.

There are so many other combos that I eat, depending on my energy, and bio-chemical demands.

p.s. Because I ate so clean for my years of competition, I now have digestive intolerances for wheat gluten, dairy protein, and sometimes eggs. It's no problem at all because there are so many alternatives! However, if I want to eat cake I just pop an enzyme for gluten and one for dairy, and I don't usually get sick. (bloated and in the bathroom right away!)

I eat a ton of chicken because of the protein content (and I don't like fish or seafood ). This is one of my fave chicken recipes and it's low fat and cal too.

Ingredients you'll need:

4-6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
2-3 pieces of low-fat string cheese cut in half
2 eggs beaten or 3/4 cup skim milk (I use Eggbeaters)
3/4 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/4 cup melted butter or margarine (I use I Can't Believe Its Not Butter)
1 cup dry white wine (I use either Sherry or White cooking wine)
1/2 lb. mushrooms, sliced

Preheat your oven to 350 deg. Pround chicken breasts thin (or buy the thin cut breasts). Wrap each breast around a piece of string cheese and secure with toothpick or just wrap tightly. Dip in egg or milk and coat well with bread crumbs. Place in casserole dish. Pour butter over chicken and bake for 30 minutes. Pour wine over chicken and bake for another 30 minutes. Remove after 30 minutes, sprinkle with mushrooms and bake for another 10 minutes or so. Absolutely delicious! I serve it with either whole wheat pasta or whole wheat rice and a veggie.

Well, my wife made something simple for starters. She cooked the chicken in mushroom soup and also made brown rice and broccoli. It is very simply and the chicken was quite moist. The mushroom soup was great on the rice as well.

I am rating it an 8.

Taste-wise I would rate it a 7+ but I am adding a point because it is so easy to make.

Hopefully as we try some of the other recipes I/we can rate them.

Thanks!

I'll piggy-back on this recipe as well. Put a cup of sour cream and a pack of dry onion soup mix in along with the mushroom soup and boneless chicken breasts. Cook it in the crock-pot for around 8 or so hours. it's AWESOME.

I hear ya! Just trying to share some healthy habits with friends!

Not to hijack this thread, my favorite way to cook chicken breasts is on the grill! I use lemon juice and my favorite BBQ sauce to marinate for at least 24 hours. I usually wrap some corn on the cob in foil and throw that on the grill too!

Preheat oven to 450 degrees
Pound chicken breasts thin or buy thin breasts
Mix a can of diced tomatoes, 1 cup of shredded Mozzarella cheese, and a tbsp of italian seasoning
Coat chix breasts in olive oil
put a spoonful of above mix on top of breasts and roll up and put toothpick in breasts to keep rolled
take some italian and cheese bread crumbs and coat the breasts
bake and enjoy

Preheat the oven and set at 390 degrees.

After cleaning the chicken well (I have to admit that I hate touching uncooked chicked), and cutting any excess fat or tissue off, I place it in a large baking pan. Then soak in lemon juice! Lemon penetrates pretty well and keeps the chicken moist. Then I sprinkle paprika, enough to put a light coat on each entire piece. Then comes plenty of Krikland (Costco) Organic No-Salt Seasoning. (Onion, garlic, carrot, black pepper, red bell pepper, tomato granules, orange peel, parsley, bay leaves, thyme, basil, celery, lemon peel, oregano, mustard seed, cumin, marjoram, corlander, cayenne pepper, rosemary) By this time the chicken is completely covered in spices. Then bake at 390 degrees for 50 minutes.

When you remove the chicken set it down and cover with foil. Let sit for at least 10 minutes.

Chicken should be moist and full of flavor!

I cook at least 8-16 at once so I will have plenty for a few days.

Well D, my wife cooked this up this afternoon.

I am going to have it for dinner after my workout....it smells good.

I will let you know how it is in a bit...Thanks again!
