Tomato Basil Artichoke Chicken - WLS Recipes


Ready for a new bariatric friendly recipe with top notch flavor?! I was LOVING this dinner the other night. Such an awesome marriage of flavors – the Italian seasoning on the chicken was surprisingly tasty and then topped with the fresh flavors of tomato and basil. By the way, have you noticed what little taste artichoke has on it’s own!? But add it to the right combination (not…not just spinach and cream dip!) and it’s a whole new food!

Post-ops: SMALL bites on this one. Chicken breast is dense and filling which is awesome for portion control and weight-loss! But keep yourself comfortable by cutting your bites up before you start eating. Mix a little flavor with each bite using the topping but still maintaining your best bite size.

Pre-ops: Focus on slow eating both for practice after surgery AND for better portion control before surgery. Eating too fast = eating too much. Slow your roll and practice your post-op habits!!!
