Buy the precooked grilled chicken strips in your meat department of the grocery store. You can buy a large bag or a small bag and add it to everything from salads, soups, casseroles, you name it! It is a huge time saver, and tastes great. There is nothing added...it's just chicken.

I loved grilled chicken fresh off the grill, but dislike the flavor when its been reheated. So I bought the little George Forman grill and whenever I want a piece of fresh grilled chicken, I just slap an individual chicken breast on the grill and 9 minutes later - DINNER !!!
Grilled chicken, no bun veggies on the side with a side of salsa4
I bartend a few nights a week so when I have to eat bar food I just have our cook grill me up a grilled chicken breast (no butter or anything during grilling) with no bun and add salsa or the buffalo sauce that they use on the wings. Everything I have looked up says it is under 200 calories.
Cook in Bulk & Freeze the excess for quick, healthy meals later.
It takes just as long to cook 6 chicken breasts as it does 2. I buy bulk chicken/meat and then I cook it all up. I reserve my portion for cooking that night and put the excess into serving size baggies and freeze. The next time I need it, it's already cooked and dinner's a breeze! I also get my hubby to grill a bunch of meat and do the same trick with it.
