Chicken Pockets with Garlic and Cheese

  • 2 Chicken Breasts
  • 4 tbsps 0% fat Cream Cheese
  • Garlic Powder to taste
  • Salt to taste

Pre-heat oven to 180º/350º/Gas Mark 4-moderate

Slice the chicken breasts along the middle creating a “pocket”, being careful not to cut all the way through. Sprinkle some salt and garlic powder inside the pockets you just created. Spread some tin foil in a roasting tray – enough to wrap the meat and put the chicken breasts in. Put 1-2 table spoons of cream cheese inside each “pocket” and add some more garlic powder on top. Seal up the meat with your fingers and finally sprinkle some parsley over it. Cover everything with the foil so that it is all closed up.

Cook for 30 minutes at 180C.

Open the foil, put the oven on grill and cook for a further 10-15 minutes.

Attack Phase Day 2

Day 2 of the Attack Phase stats:

  • Weight Today 109.2 kgs
  • Weight Lost 0.4 kgs

What I ate yesterday:

  • Breakfast – porridge made with Oat Bran, skimmed milk and a little sweetener.
  • Snack – 4 slickes cooked ham (they are small round slices) so about 30g.
  • Lunch – 2 eggs scrambled
  • Snack – Non-fat soft cheese and smoked salmon.
  • Dinner – Tuna Steak grilled.
  • Drinks – over 2 ltrs water, 2 cups of tea.
  • Exercise – 20 minute walk with the dog.

The day went fairly well but I was hungry, as you can tell by the snacking.  I think this is the aftermath of my carb binge over the weekend!  I drank a lot of water which is good for me – I used to hate the stuff but now I keep a large glass of water on the desk so I remember I am supposed to be drinking it.

The 20 minute walk should have been longer but our dog is not very well behaved – he gets all the exercise he needs running round the campo and doesn´t “do” being walked!  At one stage he nearly pulled me head-first into the river – well I say river….it´s more of a stream.

So I´m very happy with my first day as a Dukaneer and hope the rest of the diet goes this well!
