How About A Little Variety in the Kitchen?

A few weeks ago, I asked for your recipes with the promise to share a few of my favorites with everyone so here are a few that I’m anxious to try!  To view the complete list of recipe submissions just click here. And, as promised, here are a few that seem easy and satisfying.


Misty‘s Recipe: Low Carb Chicken Cordon Bleu

* 4 servings boneless skinless chicken cutlets
* 4 servings thin sliced ham
* 2 servings laughing cow creamy swiss
* 1 serving part skim shredded mozzarella
* 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
* 2 large eggs
* 2 cups grated romano


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a cookie sheet with the olive oil (it doesn’t have to be extra virgin, even a cooking spray works fine).
2. Beat eggs and set aside. Salt and pepper to taste. *Note: You may also add a teaspoon of melted I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter substitute into the egg mix at your choosing.
3. Place a slice of ham on half of each of the chicken cutlets. Then slice the laughing cow cheese wedges in half, placing each half on top of the ham.
4. Fold each slice of chicken in half and secure with a toothpick if needed.
5. Dip chicken in the egg mixture then coat it with the romano cheese and place on the cookie sheet. (Grated parmesan also works)
6. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top of each piece. Bake another 10-15 minutes until top is golden brown and chicken is cooked through.
7. Let cool for 5-10 minutes then serve and enjoy!

Kimberly’s Recipe: Chicken Roll-ups

4 2-3 oz chicken breast tenderloins (flatten to about 1/4″ thick w/ meat tenderizer)
2 wedges of Laughing Cow Cheese*
dijon mustard or buffalo wing sauce
bread crumbs

Lay the chicken flat, spread 1/2 of a LC cheese wedge over it. Roll up, coat with dijon mustard OR buffalo wing sauce, coat in bread crumbs. Secure with a tooth pick and place in a baking dish that has been sprayed with Pam.

Repeat for all chicken pieces. Cover with foil, bake at 350 degrees F for 20, remove foil and back an additional 15 minutes.

* I like to use Garlic Herb LC cheese with the dijon mustard and Blue Cheese with the buffalo wing sauce.

    You are doing great! I am also on a weight-loss journey; I used to weigh 150 kilos (330 lbs), and today am at 97 (213). I still have a definate way to go (I am ignoring the idiots who tell me I have "lost enough"). It does feel great to feel and be so much fitter! You mention on your pictures page that your body has to "catch up with your mind". That may be true in someways, but I feel that it definately takes time to get out of a "fat mind". I believe that a true and permanent change of one's way of thinking and relating to food is needed if one wants to be able to keep the weight off personally. (I blog over at ) I wish you continued sucess!
