Q: Low carb already grilled chicken recipes?
I have a grilled chicken breast that I want to use tomorrow for lunch, but I am sick of the same old chicken ceaser salad, and chicken wraps, etc. So what are some good low carb options that I can make?
A: Take either whole wheat bread, or maybe rye if you prefer that. Some tomato, onion if you like (red onion is best), Alfalfa sprouts (really!). Cheese of your preference, possibly even a spicy monterey jack cheese. Maybe some spicy southwestern mayo, to keep the carbs down. Things like blue cheese and whatever, although yummy, rack them up. Or maybe no mayo at all. Assemble it (slicing the breast, perhaps), with toasted bread perhaps, or maybe grilling the sandwich on a skillet with some butter. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
Q: Help! Does anyone have GOOD low-fat, low-carb, &/or low-cal recipes for boneless chicken breasts?
I'm sooooo sick of boneless chicken breasts, but they're EXCELLENT when I'm trying to lose weight (I lost a lot of weight a while ago, but I'm working on losing a little more). Can anyone give me recipes for chicken that won't add a lot of cals, carbs, and/or fat - THAT ACTUALLY TASTE GOOD? By the way, I've tried lots of websites, and I've never found anything very helpful. If you're going to suggest a website, please make it a good one. Thank you!

Q: Recipe for a low carb under 10gm chicken casserole?
I want to make a chicken casserole but i want it to be a very low carb dinner.
A: Instead of pasta, throw the chicken in your casserole dish with a bag of specialty frozen veggie mix. You know what veggies your family and/or friends like best. Get a mix with those in it. You can get all sorts of special mixes nowadays in most grocery stores. When it's nearly done, top with grated cheese. Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces and brown in a skillet that's been sprayed with non-stick spray. Season to taste. I like a combination of salt, pepper, onion, and garlic. You can add a little water while it's cooking if it starts to stick. Be sure the chicken is done, then mix it with the frozen veggies and pile it into your casserole pan. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit about 30 min, then top with grated cheese and bake 10-15 min more. Yummers!

Q: anyone have any interesting/unique low carb recipes?

A: I came up with maki sushi that doesn't use rice. I made it for people who were doing low carb as well as "normals" and both groups loved it. :) Ingredients: Nori seaweed wrappers Carrots Zuchinni Daikon (lo bak) Cauliflower Sesame Oil Mirin Toasted sesame seeds Fillings of your choice (smoked salmon, tuna, shrimp, crab, avocado, sliced marinated shiitaki mushrooms, etc.) Method: Grate the carrots, zuchinni, and daikon but keep them seperated. Sprinkle a bit of sesame oil, mirin and sesame seeds into each dish and toss until the veggies are coated. Set aside. Boil the cauliflower until very, very tender. Drain. Puree. Set aside. Prepare the fillings of your choice. I used avocados, shiitaki mushrooms (which I marinated in a bit of teriyaki sauce) shrimps, crab and salmon for the sushi I made. Now for the fun bit! Place a sheet of nori on bamboo sushi roller mat or piece of plastic wrap. Place either the grated carrot, zuchinni, daikon, OR pureed cauliflower on about 1/2 of the nori. Then put in filling of choice. Once filled, roll into a tube, seal edges with a bit of water and then slice into 6 slices. These are the combos I used: Grated carrot w/ marinated shiitaki mushrooms Grated zuchinni and carrot w/ crab and avocado Pureed cauliflower w/ salmon (I mixed wasabi in with the cauliflower puree for extra flavour) Daikon and carrot w/ shrimps Zuchinni, avocado and crab Cauliflower puree w/ shiitaki mushroom and grated carrot Experiment and have fun.
Q: What are some easy, inexpensive low-carb recipes?
I use chicken a lot, but I want to experiment with other foods and meats. Any suggestions or recipes?
A: Buy some whole wheat pita bread, the kind that is not cut in half. Brown some lean ground beef and drain it well. Spread some fat free spaghetti sauce on your pita bread. Put some of the ground beef on it and whatever other toppings you like on a "pitza". Top with fat free or low fat mozzerella cheese. Bake in a 400 degree oven til cheese is melted and the pita is just starting to get crisp. I have 2 daughters and when we make this, I put a variety of toppings, such as green peppers, onions, mushrooms, jalapenos, etc., in bowls and let everyone make their own to their liking. We also use chicken breast instead of ground beef sometimes. Use your imagination and see what you come up with.
