For Val

My dear friend Val has been under the weather for over a week now and she tells me she reads my blog when she is bored…but I have not written anything since the 10th! (I just called to see how she was) So this post is dedicated to my wonderful friend Val.

Not much to report other than I will be officially starting my liquid protein diet…um today! Yep I need to lose as much as possible this we are at the countdown…this time next month I will have had my surgery! I am scheduled to go in at 10:15 and is supposed to be a 2 hour surgery.

How about a recipe?

Yeah, I knew you’d be interested! I thought I had a picture of this, but apparently not, though it was sooooo good!

PB Chicken

  • 2 LB boneless, skinless chicken breast, chunked
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 large red pepper, diced

For Sauce:

  • 1c chicken broth
  • 2/3c natural PB
  • 1/4c soy sauce
  • 1T cumin
  • 1 lime, juiced
  1. Place chicken and veggies in crockpot.
  2. Make your sauce by adding all ingredients to a bowl and whisk until incorporated thoroughly.
  3. Pour over chicken and give a good stir.
  4. Cook on low for 7-8 hours or on high for 4-5 hours.

This would not necessarily be a weight loss surgery friendly meal…BUT it is a family friendly one. My kids really loved it and it is simple enough they can actually throw this together when Mom…that’s me…wants nothing to do with the kitchen.

What do you think? Do you enjoy easy throw together meals, simple enough the kids can cook?
