I love my breasts, thank you very much! hehehe
I also cook a lot of them at one time in the oven or boil them, but stop the cooking process while still mildly pink inside. That way, they are not overly dry when reheating.
Then, with the cooked plain breasts (these meals may be considered a bit girly to some, but they’re tasty and easy):
-cut into bite sized pieces, marinate in olive oil, fresh garlic, balsamic vinegar, salt, spices…toss over baby greens for a salad, along with chopped hard boiled egg white, raw almonds, tomatoes
-add chopped breast meat into fold of egg white omelette at the end of cooking along with small amount of mozzerella…top omelette with marinara sauce
-chop and mix with olive oil, avocado, tomato, green onion, salt and spices for cold chicken salad…this can be eaten as an open face sandwich on top of a slice of toasted, diet sliced brown bread
-chop and mix with a little bit of mayo, flax seed oil, curry powder, celery, salt, pepper…roll into whole wheat tortilla
-top cold breast with bottled bbq sauce or salsa, nuke 1 minute, serve with reheated sweet potato/brown rice/quinoa/whatever
-when craving pizza, top cooked breast with pizza sauce and lowfat mozzerella and broil
-THIS IS INCREDIBLY GOOD:
a. Shred cooked chicken breasts into bite sized pieces, place the meat into a bowl.
b. Curry sauce: Make a roux (1-2 T. flour, 1-2 T butter or light olive oil) cook in saucepan, then add skim milk, continuously whisking with fork or wire wisk, until a thick white sauce is formed…season the sauce with salt to taste…add curry powder to taste…place into serving bowl.
c. Condiments: chopped hard boiled eggs/whites, salted roasted peanuts, golden raisins, chopped onion, turkey bacon bits
d. to serve: place serving of chicken onto a plate. Smother with sauce. Top with desired condiments. Serve with brown rice. Can do the same with Jumbo Shrimp.
