Then added a crumbled turkey burger from the grill a couple nights ago. I added 1/4 C low sodium black beans and let it cook for a few more minutes. I washed some lettuce leaves and spooned a nice amount on them. I cut up 1/2 oz Pepperjack cheese and sprinkled it on before I wrapped them up.

It was so good, I may have them again tonight!

You didn't mention oven temp or amount of time.

Salt

1 lemon
Soy sauce
1-2 Tbs. olive oil

Blot the moisture off the chicken breast meat with paper towels and cut into bite sized pieces. Put into a bowl and season with salt (go light on the salt, especially if you plan to drizzle on some soy sauce later), pepper, and the juice of half a lemon and toss well. Leave to marinate for a couple of minutes, then drain off the excess moisture.

In the meantime, heat up a large frying pan with the olive oil.

Lay each piece flat in the pan, taking care they don’t overlap. Let cook over high heat until crispy and golden brown (about 3-4 minutes), then turn over and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until browned on the other side. Optionally drizzle a tiny amount of soy sauce over the chicken to give them a caramelized color. Finish off by squeezing the juice from the other half of the lemon over it all.

He served this up with some steamed asparigus and the 1/4 cup brown rice. So tasty.
Made this for dinner last night and it was yummy! Thanks for the recipe.

Mrs. Dash makes marinades now and they are salt-free and certain ones are in our guidelines. I found mine in the aisle with BBQ sauces and hot sauces and such. I marinated chicken breasts in the mesquite grille marinade and they turned out good! It was a nice change to the normal chicken breasts.

cumin, chili powder, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and Tabasco I think along with a cream of tomato supp. if you want. That is what I have written down for a taco bake thing so I think that would be it. Although, center told me we could use McCormicks low sodium taco seasoning so that is always what I use with some green onion, green pepper, and green chilies in the meat mixture; it's really good!

For you coffee lovers.. I made myself a cup of coffee this afternoon that was decadent and sooooo good.

I added to the coffee, a small amout of sugar free Hershey's Cocoa, some pumpkin spice , cinnamon, brewed it and then added Vanilla soy milk and stevia.. You can add whatever milk you drink,( I can't drink milk) or splenda if you want instead of stevia..I whipped coffee up a bit to make it frothy. This was soooooo good.. It missed some fat free whipped creme on top, but I can't trust myself with that,so don't bring it in the house..

Somebody had mentioned vegetables purees on one of the previous threads that was a different diet but I tried one and it was delicious! I was thinking that it'd be gross but the one I tried turned out like a gravy..it was the first one on the blog with muschrooms, celery, and garlic. I put it over some rotisserie chicken. YUM I will be making it again!! Fun with Veggie Purees!
