HCG Diet-Friendly Chicken Soup Recipe
This Hcg Diet recipe was a hit for my protocol. Personally, I don’t have a problem mixing my vegetables, so that wasn’t an issue when this recipe was sent my way. I ended up using it several times and found it convenient to make and keep in my fridge for quick leftover meals.
- 2 – 3 lbs chicken breast cut into squares
- Worcestershire sauce- sugar free, fat free
- Picante sauce – (“sugar free, fat free – not like pace picante, but like hot sauce.” Franks hot sauce worked for me as well.)
- 1 chicken bullion cubes (make sure there is no sugar in the ingredients.)
- 2 tomatoes, blended first with 1/2 ltr water
- 1/2 clove garlic
- Any of the following: celery, leek, turnip, onion, parsley, dill, cilantro, salt and pepper to taste.
- Lemon or lime juice
- 2 and a 1/2 liters water
Boil for about 20 minutes. The soup will become very orange with a strong aroma.
This recipe is not “exact” simply because “mother-in-law” is such an amazing cook, she just throws things in a pot and they come out perfect. Feel free to adjust the amounts to what you prefer, or what your specific protocol allows. Honestly, it’s one of those recipes where anything seems to work. If I can make it, anyone can- it’s that fool-proof!
Also- for the picante sauce, she recommended Salsa Huichol but she gets it from Mexico so I’m not sure if it’s easy to find. I used Frank’s hot sauce and it was great! In fact, Frank’s hot sauce was a staple for my Hcg Diet round.
I hope you enjoy this one- bon appetite!
Quick Tip for Cooking Chicken on the HCG Diet Plan
Chicken Recipes on the Menu!
While chicken is permitted on the hCG diet food list, all recipes using chicken must be properly portioned to their phases. Phase 2, for example, allows 100 grams weighed raw. Phase 3, 1 full skinless chicken breast.
When preparing chicken, take note that most recipes will call for oil to be used. When in phase 2 in particular, some dieters will continue to use a very small amount of oil if they are on the “New HCG Diet Plan” and continue to lose weight just fine.
For those of you on stricter protocols, it may be wise to substitute this for coconut oil, or select recipes for grilled, broiled or baked chicken instead. Another option is to use a low sodium soy sauce to wet the pan for suitable dishes.
Quick tips for eating chicken on the protocol:
- Boneless, skinless chicken breast are a great food for phase 3. These are ideally proportioned to simply cook and eat. Be sure to trim the fat and no skin!
- Consider weighing individual chicken breasts and then freezing as a convenient way to cut down on cooking time.
Avoid processed chicken patties from the frozen foods section of the grocery store. These are not fresh chicken and are loaded with calories, preservatives and added ingredients that could stall your weight loss.
