I was searching for recipes that I could make using my George Foreman grill. This looks good, but am not sure how it would do for my weight loss. I think it would count as 1 P, 1 S. Can someone who has online access find out from LAWL corporate how it would be counted? Please and thank you!

Sounds a lot like a German "schnitzel".... It also sounds very good!

I guess the difference is that a schnitzel would be pan fried rather than grilled.
