Well if you are new to a low carb lifestyle or even if you just want some great new recipes to choose from for a healthier lifestyle then I'll try and help. So many times you wonder-what do I have already at home that can be turned into-well something decent-if not great. Well let's see..most people have chicken right? Pull those chicken breast out of the freezer and THAW. Once that's done---try this:
PIZZA CHICKEN TONIGHT
4 skinless chicken breasts
small can of pizza sauce (watch the label-make sure there's no sugar added)
pepperoni slices (as many as you want-within reason)
1 cup of shredded cheese of choice
salt and pepper
Take a 2 qt glass baking dish (8x8) and spray with some nonstick cooking spray. Then place each chicken breast snuggily (is that a word?) in the pan. It's ok if they touch. They are happier that way. Then salt and pepper each to your liking. Ok top each with a little sauce, cheese and pepperoni slices. Pop in the microwave (yes the microwave) for about 15-20 minutes. You may have to cut into one to see how they are doing.
-MAKE SURE THEY ARE COOKED ALL THE WAY THROUGH. The pepperoni will get nice and crispy on the outside. The sauce keeps the chicken nice and juicy.
*if you like serve this with a side salad. It's very good and reheats well also for lunch the next day.
