    1/4 t oregano
    1/4 t thyme

    1/4 t black pepper
    1/4 t ground red pepper

spinach or salad greens (as allowed)

Combine all spices and rub on chicken. Grill until no longer pink. Serve over spinach or salad greens.

 

Hot Dressing

Brown the chicken with Pam, ‘no salt’-salt and lots of pepper.
Once browned, turn down the heat to low and add chipotle salsa. I used Wegmans, jarred. its fat free, >1 carb, and has 10 calories per 2 Tbsp.
Let it borwn in the pan till it starts to stick then add about 1/2 of water to “deglaze” along with either juice of 1/2 orange or grapefruit and just a splash of Warchestshire.
Add Stevia if you need to counter the tartness. I had to add because of the grapefruit though you might not. Heat cook on med low until the chicken is done and remove to plate. Thicken sauce until desired thickness and pour it over your greens. Yum.

Cholulu Lime Hot Salad Dressing

– 1/8 cup Cholula Lime Hot Sauce
– 2-3 tbsp of cold water
– 1 pack of Truvia ( sweeten as desired)
* Mix all ingredients together …add your allowable protein of choice*

This is AWESOME! There is no sugar or calories in this dressing…. and anything spicy ( like the hot sauce used) will curb your appetite. Just prepare an extra portion or two of your protein. Stick it in your refrigerated and your next meal is ready in 2 min. You dont even have to turn on your stove! I would eat it even if I was not on Dr. Simeons HCG protocol. Enjoy! Let me know what you think.

 

Salad Dressing
In a shaker combine

1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup water

3/4 teaspoon garlic
1/4 teaspoon minced garlic (not necessary but I liked it)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt (I used coarse)
1/2 teaspoon pepper or to taste
1/2 teaspoon stevia or to taste
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon italian seaoning
1/4 teaspoon cumin or to taste ( I don’t like that much)
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes – optional

Shake vigorously and pour over your lettuce or spinach etc….

 

Vinegar Dressing

1 cup water
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp dijon mustard
salt
pepper
onion powder
garlic powder
sweetener to taste (i usually use 2 packets)

mix everything together and let it sit for a few minutes so the sweetener will dissolve

I’m also not a fan of vinegar in general, BUT I’ve used a dressing with apple cider vinegar in it since my first round and I love it. I use it for salad, soak sliced cucumbers in it, and even dip my chicken in it! It’s delicious.  there is also the option to substitute chicken stock for the vinegar if you are not a huge vinegar fan.

 

Orange Squeeze Dressing 

I love half an orange squeezed then use the pulp too, half a lemon juice only, big splash of Braggs, 5-6 stevia drops, lemon or plain, a dash of salt. Wisk it and drop over Romaine hearts and your dry-grilled 100g’s of chicken. Yum!
