Tasteful Tuesday – Trim Healthy Mama Fiesta Chicken Rub

Chicken is a the main meat consumed in my home.  I am the only one who likes fish.  Not everyone likes pork or beef, so most of our meals consist of chicken.  This past weekend we went camping with my sister-in-law and her family, and we planned to have grilled chicken for dinner.  I’m still a little confused about marinades and salad dressings when it comes to the Trim Healthy Mamaplan.  Since we were cooking for 11 people, I figured I’d rather not be a short order cook.  I was in the last few days of week two of a fuel cycle.  (For those of you who aren’t THM’s yet, a fuel cycle is a special segment of the plan which you can implement when you hit a plateau in your weight loss).  I was determined to stay on plan, so I concocted a recipe for chicken rub that was a huge hit with everyone.

Trim Healthy Mama Fiesta Chicken Rub

Chili powder
Cilantro
Cumin
Salt
Pepper

Now, just a warning, I have absolutely no idea how much of each ingredient I used.  I simply placed the chicken breasts on a platter, sprinkled the spices on both sides, and then rubbed them in.  Sorry the Cilantro is not pictured.  I should have saved some for the picture. 🙂

This recipe would be a FP (fuel pull).  You could serve grilled non-starchy veggies and keep it a FP.  You could serve it over quinoa or brown rice to make it an E (energizing).  My favorite recipe is to serve it with avocado, tomatoes, Colby cheese, and romaine lettuce, wrapped in a low carb tortilla as an S (satisfying) meal.

¡Buen apetito!
