What's For Supper?


It is time to get rid of this baby fat!

After my 2nd child, I hit the South Beach diet pretty hard. I lost the weight from baby number 2, baby number 1, AND those few pounds I had gained after the wedding... a whopping 70 lb. difference! Of course, as soon as I lost it all, I found out surprise number 3 was on his way!

Now that he is here, it is time to get rid of all the fat clothes again!
Mandy, a friend from Boutique Wild Child, started a "What's for dinner?" Mr. Linky. I thought this might give me a chance to share some of my favorite Southbeach Diet Recipes.

This is one of my favorites. It is super easy too ;)

Chicken Capri
Phase 1

Ingredients
  • 1 cup ricotta, skim
  • 1/2 tsp ground oregano
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 4 breasts, bone and skin removed chicken breasts
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsps virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped or sliced tomatoes
  • 4 slices mozzarella cheese

Directions

In a blender or food processor, combine the ricotta with the oregano, salt, and pepper. Process to blend. Set aside.

Rub the chicken with the garlic powder. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 12 minutes per side. Place the chicken breasts, side by side, in a large baking dish and allow to cool. 

Preheat the oven to 350° F (180° C). 

Spoon 1/4 cup of the cheese mixture and 1/4 cup tomatoes onto each chicken breast. Top each chicken breast with 1 slice mozzarella. 

Bake for 20 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted in the thickest portion of a breast registers 170° F (75° C) and the juices run clear. 

This recipe is from the South Beach diet cookbook. YUM!!!!
