Tangy broiled chicken
Half a piece of lean chicken breast makes a decent and filling meal. It is light and high in quality protein. In this recipe the chicken can be replaced with a piece of salmon, and the tangy flavor is especially appealing.
Makes one serving.
1/2 a chicken breast, rubbed with herbal seasoning rub - fish or poultry rub works
3 pieces of napa cabbage cut in 1 inch strips
1/2 of a fresh lime or lemon
1/4 cup low sodium chicken stock
Lay the cut cabbage, 2 pieces side by side and on top of each other in baking tray. Cut tomato in quarters and squeezed over the cabbage. Leave some for squeezing over chicken. Squeeze some lime over cabbage. Place chicken over cabbage. Squeeze the remainder of the tomato and lime over the chicken. Pour chicken stock in the tray, not over the chicken.
Broil chicken in a 350 F oven, turning once, till the chicken looks brown and done.
