SQUEAKY CLEAN BBQ CHICKEN!!

Thanks Hollywood!!

My Dream Team teammate “Hollywood” totally inspired this concoction! Many thanks to her for introducin’ me to a NEW….EASY!!!…way to prepare Chicken!!

The How To…Low & Slow!

Get ready to Rock your Croc Pot y’all! Doesn’t get any easier than this!!

If you are a bodybuilder in the midst of leanin’ down, your gonna want to measure out your raw chicken portions and then just dump’em into the Croc Pot.

Add whatever seasoning blend (no salt) that you desire to add the flavah you wanna savah on this soon to be mouth waterin’ bird!

Throw the blend all over the raw chicken that is now in your Croc Pot.

Turn the Croc Pot on LOW and leave it alone for 8 plus hours. That’s it!

Well…there’s a couple ways to finish off this bird once it’s done cookin’….

Portion Control Method

Again, if portion control is essential to your leanin’ down process, then simply pull each portion out, keeping it in it’s whole form….note it may fall apart as you stick your fork into the cooked chicken, but do your best to transfer it in the portion sizes to your container for storage.

Once in the container, add some of the chicken broth that formed while cookin’ in the Croc Pot, and then you can pull it apart so it shreds up into a Pulled Chicken BBQ style and add sugar free BBQ sauce to it.

Mass Method

After chicken has cooked for the 8 plus hours, take off the Croc Pot lid and get two forks. Use the forks to shred the chicken up. The chicken will literally fall apart! This will allow all of the Chicken Broth to be saturated throughout all of the chicken that was cooked – distributing the seasonings you added to begin with throughout. Add Sugar Free BBQ Sauce – IF – you want to make the whole recipe into Pulled Chicken BBQ. (You may have some other plans in mind…like TACOS!!)

Cole Slaw

What goes better with BBQ of any kind than SLAW Y’all??!!!

Clean Cole Slaw is DELICIOUS!

Simply cut up some green cabbage and red cabbage, jicama (hi-KAH-ma), onion, tomatillos (TO-MAH-TEE-YOs) add some celery seed, coarse ground pepper, some vinegar and you’re done!

The longer it sets (in the refrigerator) the better this slaw gets (keeps up to 3 weeks).

BBQ Sandwich!

If you are havin’ a meal that allows a carb….I would strongly suggest adding an Ezkiel Cinnamon Raisin English Muffin to this BBQ Party!

Split the English Muffin in half, throw on some of the Pulled Chicken BBQ on one half of the english muffin, add cole slaw and top with the other half of the english muffin and you’ve got an AMAZIN’ Pulled Chicken BBQ Sandwich that’s gonna make your taste buds sing a HAPPY Country Song!! ;o)

Oatmeal & Eggwhites Collide!

Oatmeal Mix Up!

My Coach would be the first to tell you that “There is NO OFF-SEASON”, but at the Forefront of the Trainin’ Season, one does usually take in more calories. That said, when I make oatmeal it’s typically with plain, unsweetened soy milk, almond butter, banana, dried cranberries, dried cherries, almonds and walnuts. YUMMY!!

But, I wanted to see if I could add more protein to it. So, I had the idea to whip up my egg whites (like I do for my Breakfast Cloud recipe) and blend them with the oatmeal.

The Outcome…Oatmeal Eggwhite Muffins!

Do What??!!

Okay here’s how to mix’em up….

Prepare oatmeal by mixing 2 cups water to 1 cup of oatmeal. Get that boilin’ and then turn the heat down to low and put a lid on it for 15 minutes.

While that’s cookin’, whip up 7 egg whites with a hand mixer until they peak.

When the 15 minutes timer for the oatmeal goes off, remove from heat, take off the lid and add the following:

2 TBSPs Almond Butter

1 Cup Chopped nuts (whatever you like)

1 Cup Dried fruit (Cherries and Cranberries are great!)

1 Banana

2 TBSPs Flax

Stir all of the above into the oatmeal. Then FOLD in the whipped up eggwhites until they are just blended into the mixture you just created.

Spray non-stick cooking spray or place muffin liners in a muffin pan and then fill each section with this muffin batter.

Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes.

These muffins are light, fluffy and mighty tasty!! ENJOY!!
