Great idea to start a recipe thread. The diet can get really boring, it’s great to share ideas.
Dunno why this is, I don’t even LIKE pizza, but when low carbing or calorie-cutting or exercising a lot, I crave pizza. I don’t much like bread, and usually eat the stuff off the top of pizza anyway and throw out the crust; nonetheless, I devised this recipe, that I often will eat 2-3 times a day when low carbing. Please note: I don’t cook well, so for those of you with busy schedules, terrible cooks (like me), this is soooo super easy and quick to make.
1- large can tomato sauce (no sugar)
2- TBS. extra virgin olive oil
Dash: Garlic Powder, dried oregano, dried basil
Bring to boil in saucepan, stirring constantly, then turn to low heat and cover, simmering for 10 minutes or so, stirring frequently. Store in refrigerator.
One chopped low fat mozzerella string cheese stick, or some low fat shredded mozzerella cheese.
Leftover chicken breast (I cut it in half crosswise, into two thin fillets- one whole chicken breast is too much for me at one meal), or chopped/slices of chicken breast, or a 4 or 6 egg white omelette, seasoned to your choice (i use chili powder, garlic salt, dash of water, vigorously beaten until fluffy).
Assmebly: On a microwave safe plate or gladware container, place chicken breast or egg omelette, 3 T. pizza sauce and top with cheese. Microwave around 40-60 seconds until the cheese is just melted.
This is easy. Once the sauce is made, and you have leftover chicken or egg beaters in your fridge, a meal can be made easily and in just a few minutes.[/quote]
This recipe is really good! I usually do the same type of thing only in the oven. (It’s my take on Chicken Parm, only healthier.)
Try baking the chicken in the sauce for about 30-40 minutes (depending on the thickness of the chicken). Then sprinkle shredded mozzerella on top and bake for another 5-10 mins. Yum!
