    In the photo it looks like the chicken breast is sitting on….yellow squash?  white potatoes?  It’s a great presentation.

      It is on a bed of scalloped potatoes. If you wanted to decrease carb intake/calories you could use squask or even a grilled spiced zucchini.

    This looks delicious!  Also it’s a really good example of how you can eat a meal that will fit into a high protein week (like week 4 of OPT) and easily add some sides to make it a “regular” meal for your family.

      Absolutely. Like I said above you could put your families on a bed of potatoes and yours solo or with a variety of veggies.

    WoW… very high caloric meal! Almost 1,000 calories. If you’re eating 5x a day I wouldnt want my last meal to be 1000 calories. Sounds delicious however!!!!

      Dean I think you got a little confused. It is 943 for 4 servings. One serving is only 235 calories.
