Updated 3/27/15- This recipe is featured in my new ebook! The 28 Day Diabetes Diet Meal Planner: Lower Carb Menus & Easy Recipes is the perfect way to stay on track with your diet- whether you have Type 2 diabetes or just want to watch your carb intake. In this newest ebook, I wanted to make meal planning and cooking super easy so that even people who have no previous cooking experience could make healthy and delicious recipes. This particular recipe is really a “base” recipe that you can build lots of meal on. For example, in the photo above, I am using the Greek chicken in a salad. I’ve also included other ways you can use this recipe such as pita wraps, chicken salad, etc. You can cook up a batch of this chicken and have a good variety of meals to enjoy for several days. If your life is busy and hectic at mealtime, this will make meal prep and cooking a breeze!
