Cabbage and Chicken

Hello all the Manic Monday HCG-ers!

We have a special guest post today.  Thank you to Kathy, who sent this recipe and photo to share with all of you.  She has been enjoying this meal while on the HCG Diet Protocol.  We hope you enjoy it too!  Have a great week everyone.

Cabbage and Chicken
3.5 ounce raw chicken breast (no skin or bone)
3.5 ounce cabbage (cut up into chunks)
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons of fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash garlic and herbs
1 tablespoon Dried minced onion
1/2 teaspoon Sea salt
1/2 teaspoon Ground black pepper

In a small sauce pan, add your water and lemon juice. Add your chicken breast and cook until it turns white on both sides. Add your seasoning to taste and simmer on low heat until chicken is cooked all the way through. Add water to the chicken as needed to create a nice sauce. While your chicken is cooking, boil your cabbage (covered) in salted water until tender.

To serve, place your cabbage on a plate. Cut up you chicken into small bite size pieces and place it on top of your cabbage. Pour the remaining juices and spices from your pan on top and enjoy.

I usually try and make multiple meals when cooking for phase 2 and freeze what I'm not going to use that day. So you can either make one portion as indicated above or more if you want to save yourself a couple of days of cooking.

If you want to make multiple portions:
Take your package of skinless, boneless chicken breast and cut it up into 3.5 ounce portions. I can usually get six servings. You'll have to increase your seasoning to match. Then weigh you cabbage to match your chicken servings. So if I have six portions of chicken, I weigh 21 ounces (6 X 3.5 ounces) of cabbage to match. After your cabbage is tender, drain and divide it into six equal portions. Each portion can be weighed to make sure they are equal. I usually label and freeze each meal in plastic snack containers.
