As with most things in life I feel you can eat just about anything if you consider the portion size and stick to that.
I've finally begun to lose weight again. I started a chiropractic regiment 3x a week and it has helped dramatically with the pain at least being manageable. I'll never live pain free but I am able to move a little better and with that hopefully burn up some calories. I'm always thankful for anything that can reduce my pain for even a tiny bit or a tiny amount of time. I'm hoping this new chiro thing works out well enough to bring my pain levels from an average 7-8 norm daily (on pain meds) to even a 5-7 as a norm and I'd be ecstatic. We shall see.
So, anyways, with all that said I have been able to move enough to get a few more "real" type meals on the table with taking breaks and doing a lot of work sitting or bending and resting, etc. This particular one was amazing!

Honey Sauced Chicken
Recipe can easily be doubled
Recipe from Chelsea at www.mmmcafe.blogspot.com
3/4 pound chicken (of your choice) * I use boneless skinless breasts
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/2 cup honey ( I use organic)
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/8 cup chopped onion (or 1/16 cup onion flakes)
1/8 cup ketchup
1 Tbs. vegetable oil (I used sesame oil)
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
Season both sides of chicken with salt and pepper, put into crock pot.
In a small bowl, combine honey, soy sauce, onion, ketchup, oil, garlic
and pepper flakes. Pour over chicken. Cook on low for 3 hours or on
high 1 1/2 hours. Chicken into bite size pieces, then return to pot and
toss with sauce.
*Note.. I used frozen chicken breasts and cooked on LOW all day. I also doubled the recipe.
Serve over rice or noodles.
To bake chicken as a 30 minute meal:
Dice chicken and season both sides with salt and pepper, place in 8x8
pan. Pour sauce over chicken and bake at 350F for 20 minutes, stirring
after 10 minutes.
