Healthy Low-Fat Chicken Recipes — by Catherine Morgan
Here are some great low-fat, low-calorie chicken recipes from Love the Diet…Lose the Fat.
Chicken Salad Wrap
Calories per serving: 180
What you need…
4 ounces cooked chicken (cubed)
¼ cup baby spinach
2 tablespoons tomatoes (cubed)
2 tablespoons frozen peas
1 tablespoon light ranch salad dressing
What to do…
Combine chicken, spinach, tomatoes, peas and dressing. Wrap in a whole-wheat tortilla. Enjoy.
*Change it up and try kale instead of spinach. Kale is an excellent source of antioxidants.
Cheesy Chicken & Broccoli
Calories per serving: 285
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.
