Low Carb & High Protein Food !
The thought of the near coming summer gives us the imagination of the beach body we’ve always wanted. Everyone prepares for it, but too little time to pull one healthy home-made meal each time.
Let us do the healthy prepping!
Chicken Breast is what we have for your low carb high protein set meal.
Chicken breast is an excellent choice as it’s not only high in protein, but its low in fat and calories. It’s lean because it’s white meat, and therefore a good choice. A typical serving size to aim for is a 3 ounce chicken breast, or about the size of your fist. Try grilling or broiling chicken and using herbs and seasoning to add flavor, and then add to salad, soup, or feature as the main entrée. Excellent for building lean muscle, and a tasty main staple to your diet!
Low carb chicken breast with fresh herbs-
2 tablespoons vegetable oil, like soy or peanut
2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Juice of 1/2 lime (about 1 tablespoon)
3 tablespoons chicken stock
2 teaspoons finely grated ginger
1/4 cup packed fresh basil leaves (herbs), torn
2 tablespoons packed fresh mint leaves, torn
- Heat the oil in a medium frying pan over medium-high heat until shimmering. Season both sides of the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, and place them skin side down in the pan. Cook, turning once, until firm to the touch. Transfer the chicken breasts to a plate.
- Add the lime juice to the frying pan, and scrape up any browned bits that cling to the pan with a wooden spoon. Add the chicken broth and ginger, and bring to a boil. Off the heat, add the basil and mint to the pan and swirl the pan to combine.
- Divide the chicken between the 2 plates and spoon the herb sauce over the chicken. Serve.
