Recipe for Dieters

No need to fire-up that big-astronomical oven.

You can prepare roasted chicken in a flash on the stove top.

Take this tip from an old cook: Slow & steady wins the race.

So keep the burner on low which will allow the chicken to form a caramelized glaze as it slowly roasts on the stove top.

How to Prepare

Here is our ultra-simple recipe - so simple that Fido could almost prepare it:

Recipe Ingredients:

Chicken Breast - lean with all skin & fat removed.

Cooking Spray (we use butter-flavored)

Salt & Pepper (we use sea salt & cracked pepper)

Spray a non-stick pan with the butter spray and add the salt and peppered chicken carefully.

Cook on low heat and turn when one side appears golden in color. When other side appears golden, turn again to ensure that chicken gets thoroughly cooked.

A Lot Now for Later

Whenever you have to fire up your oven, stove top or grill - try cooking in larger batches, then sealing the leftovers for later. This keeps healthier foods close at hand.

One of the downsides of losing is that hunger can get the best of the most wonderful weight loss plan in the universe.

Think about this; when you're out and about the town and the hungries hit and you decide to make a fast food stop, it sure can be difficult to order something small - something that will assist in curbing appetite until you can find something healthier.

And while most fast food restaurants have selections that are reasonable in fat and caloric content - when we're hungry we tend to think in this manner, "I'll worry about losing that unwanted fat later. Right now, I'm starving - and I'm just going to enjoy myself."

Because the hungries hit at home too, if you have tasty leftover stashed close by - it's going to be a lot easier to stick to your weight loss plan.

To add gusto to your fat loss plan, the following slim shake recipes may help you reach your goal. They are low in calories and yes, mighty delicious!
