  • Recipe idea?

    I eat chicken, broccoli and/or carrots, rice or egg whites most nights for dinner. I eat them all fairly plain with salt.

    Any one have any ideas for sauces or flavoring?

    For instance, if I mix it all up in a bowl it looks like chinese food, but it doesn't have an ounce of flavor.

    I'm health conscious, so it can't be fattening, but I was wondering if anyone had any idea on how to spice dinner up. I'm getting bored. I miss Mrs. Dash, and pasta sauce, and mustard, and bbq sauce, and teryaki, etc...

    some idea...

    I just made chicken on the grill last night and it was soooooo good. I marinated boneless, skinless breasts for 2 days in vegetable oil, homemade chicken broth (frozen from a prior roasted chicken), 4 cloves of minced garlic, and basil. I put aluminum foil on the grill, sprayed it with Pam and grilled it until it was almost done. Then I put it directly on the grill for about the last 5 minutes. It was so tasty and moist. My family loved it also. When I make pork, I top it with a brown sugar and butter glaze and sometimes add some pear slices. It is yummy. I also make pasta with vegetables and top it with garlic, oil, and parmesan cheese. I love doing roasts in the crock pot with a bunch of safe spices. These are just a few suggestions. Sometimes I sit and sift through recipe books and try to find ways to make them safe. Good luck!!!

      You could try to sprinkle sesame seeds on the chicken before cooking it. I usually chop the chicken in cubes, coat them well with sesame seeds then cook them. It's very nice in salads (seasoned with olive oil) or with rice.
      Hope it helps!

        Last night I melted a half stick of real butter, poured it over 4 boneless chicken breasts, and poured shreaded parmesean cheese over the breasts, baked them at 350 for about 40 minutes, and browned them under the broiler for about 5 minutes. They were great!! Not too fattening (well, probably somewhat fattening) but it tasted great and was filling, and was different than the boring rut that I've been in cooking lately.
