I got the broccoli recipe from www.kalynskitchen.blogspot.com – so many great low glycemic recipes there! Since it was just me and Tony, I halved the recipe.
- 3 cups (8 ounces) broccoli
- 1 ounce shredded swiss cheese
- 3 tablespoons light mayo
- 1/2 tbsp. lemon juice
- 1/4 tsp. Dijon mustard
- black pepper to taste
- 3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
- 1 ounce shredded cheddar
I cooked my broccoli in the microwave on the “fresh vegetable” setting. I mixed together the mayo, lemon jucie, dijon mustard and black pepper. Then I added the cheese and mixed well. Since it doesn’t spread easily, I kind of put dollops of this mixture of the broccoli – then sprinkled with Parmesan cheese and then ended it with the cheddar. Baked at 375 for 25 minutes.
The chicken just got a quick rub of French Fry Seasoning (salt, pepper and other stuff – at Big Lots!) and then finished off with the bbq sauce from the Chicago style ribs. What? You haven’t made the barbecue sauce yet?? What are you waiting for??!!
Our chicken took almost an hour and a half to grill . . . but it was worth the wait!
The last 5 minutes I used our barbecue sauce – the smell was unbelievable!

My work schedule is going to be crazy for the month of July – if I don’t work out in the morning I may never have the chance!
Must get up tomorrow and go to the gym, must get up tomorrow and go to the gym, must get up . . . . that’s my mantra I am saying right now!
See you tomorrow!
