So it was one of those days, 3 weeks into the pre-contest diet and the carb craving started to peek it's ugly head - i'm sure taking a walk through the chip isle didn't necessarily help matters any either, but whats done is done,,, so what else do you do when you cant eat chips? It's obvious right? low carb diet need a high percentage of calories from protein to have readily available amino acids to break down instead of going after that hard earned muscle! So the idea arose, MEAT CHIPS! high protein low calorie chips, made of delicious meat - and just as crunchy, if not more so than chips!
10oz Ranch meat chips.
Time to prepare!
Preheat the oven to 430, while its getting hot for some meat, start the process of cutting the chicken, you'll need a sharp knife - slice the chicken into VERY thin slices of meat, a riggid or pearing knife both work pretty well for this - once thinly sliced, spray a cookie sheet with pam and place the chicken on it - spray the chicken on the pan then sprinkle the seasonings till you feel like its enough.
Place the goods in the stove on the bottom rack, cook for 15 minutes then pull out, flip and put it back in for another 15. Then to finish it off turn the oven to broil and keep an eye on the meat, take out when the edges start to burn... let it sit (if you can wait) then dig in!
BONUS! So, while you have the chicken cut, why not give the low carb chicken tortilla wraps a shot? Just cut up the low carb tortilla into small roll-able pieces, add chicken to the inside with some onion, herbs and seasoning then roll up and spray it down with pam, place it in the oven for the same temperature (430) for 15 minutes then let sit for 5... then devour!
