Chicken For Dinner (again)? / Bariatric Edition

Chicken For Dinner (again)?


I did my groceries a few hours ago.  Guess what was on sale?  Chicken.


Now, I love eating chicken, but what I don’t love is trying to come up with creative and exciting ways to serve my family chicken.  Don’t you ever get bored of chicken?


What the heck did we do before Google?  I mean, sure, recipe books are something I love to hoard but, isn’t it wonderful to go online and search for recipes today?


“Hey Siri”, “Chicken Breast Recipes” and VOILA!!!  I have a gazillion recipes staring me in the face.  Now comes the work of figuring out which ones are on the “healthier” side of things, and which ones are actually yummy.


I’ve done some homework for you guys – my bariatric peeps!!  I’ve put together 5 simple “chicken recipes” that I’ve broken down the macronutrients, ingredient lists, cooking instructions JUST FOR YOU!!


I’ve tested and tweaked these recipes for you.  I hope you enjoy them as much as my family did testing them out for you.


They are all low-carb recipes because I realize that most of you are following a low-carb lifestyle post-surgery. They are all “smaller portions” for the “smaller post-op bariatric tummy.


If you are very newly post-op, split the recipe in half.  If you are cooking for more than one person, double, triple, quadruple the recipes.


When you try one of my recipes, make sure to post it to social media and tag me.  I want to know if my recipes helped you to get out of a “chicken-rut”. 



Healthy Hugs,
