ALWAYS inspired by what I find on the Internet, TRUE! LOVE the EASE and simplicity too! HEALTHY, nutritious, simple as can be! This "inspired" (and slighly changed) DIABETIC FOR DUMMIES COOKBOOK RECIPE by ALAN RUBIN is a DEFINATE keeper for ME!!! NOTE: To make the strips easier to do, I cut the chicken breast square to start too! One inch strips, than between baking paper, lightly pounded away, HOPING this recipe WILL make your day! Used FRESH herbs as does make a difference too! :) Original recipe says to place under broiler for 8 minutes; when pounded thin, can fry in heated pan (no oil) for 30 seconds each side until light brown, saving HEAPS of time too! PREP time does NOT include marinading overnight :) NOTE: I used chicken breasts cut into 1 inch strips about 4 ounces each NOTE: I added some spinach at the end until it wilted for extra colour and serve of veggie too :) WHOO HOO!!
