Sugar:  6g

Protein:  40g

What you will need…

4 ounces chicken breast

1.5 cups steamed broccoli

½ cup low fat cheddar cheese

¼ cup water

What to do…

Just chop your already fully cooked chicken breast into cubes and place in small sauce-pan.  Add steamed broccoli, cheddar cheese and water.  Heat on medium-low until warm, and serve.

You can also add spinach and other vegetables you enjoy.

*I like to boil my chicken in sodium free chicken broth until it is fully cooked.  When you do this, you keep a few pieced in your refrigerator for use with both cold and hot chicken recipes.
