Guess what happened today? I hit a BIG milestone in my weight loss journey – the big 4 – 0. Yup, I’ve lost 40 pounds so far since I started the Omni Drops Program. I am so excited. Yesterday I slipped on a pair of jeans that I bought 6 years ago and had high hopes on fitting in when I was trying to lose weight back then. You can imagine the feeling I got when I fit into them and then I wore them proudly with a big smile on my face, all day long.
Tonight I was looking for something different to eat to celebrate the big 40 and decided to try and make something to stuff inside my chicken. I went with a stuffing made out of Wasa crackers, celery, onions and spices. It was so delicious and just like an old-time homecooked meal.
If you make this recipe, I’d love for you to leave a comment. I’m hoping all of these recipes are helping some of you out and I love to hear from you. Leave me a comment below or drop by my facebook page and leave a comment there. Also, if you are looking for any particular recipe for Phase 2 of the Omni Drops Program, let me know and I might have one up my sleeve for you.
(recipe is only for one so double or tripe if you need to feed more)
4oz chicken breast
1/2oz celery, chopped
1/2 oz onion, chopped
1 Wasa cracker
dash of ground thyme
dash of salt and pepper
3 Tablespoons chicken broth
Pound the chicken breast so it’s thin and place on a cookie sheet. Grind your cracker in a mini food chopper/processor and place the cracker crumbs in a bowl. Add the celery, onion and spices. Mix well. Add the broth and Place the stuffing in the middle of the chicken breast and roll the chicken closed. Secure with a toothpick. Bake in a 375 oven for 20 minutes.
This looks great. but i am lazy. can I come to your house? lol

Thanks Jennifer. This weekend I’ll be going shopping to buy new clothes. I just can’t stand these loose clothes anymore.
My fear with stuffed chicken or any meat for that matter, is that it will get too dried out. Your chicken though looks nice and moist. Maybe I need to flatten mine out more to cook evenly.

I made sure the stuffing mix was really “wet” when it went into the oven, knowing it would start to dry out if I didn’t. My chicken and stuffing was very moist. 🙂

Hello there. I’m in week 2 of phase 2. This looks great going to make tonight. Question is can I use canned chicken broth or do I need to cook my chicken first and use the broth from it?
Tammy, I always used the chicken broth in the carton. Be very careful on the sodium content though. I always chose ones with low sodium. Many times I would just use water instead of broth also. For instance, when I would cook the chicken and cabbage soup, I used water and added in spices and a bay leaf. You could never tell the difference.
Good luck and be sure to check in in a few weeks to let me know how you’re doing.
Thank you for your recipes! I’m doing the hcg protocol and your recipes I think are going to save my tastebuds. 🙂
Thanks Stacy. Good luck and Happy Cooking!
