Need more ideas for what to do with all of that leftover chicken you prepped on Sunday and are completely sick of by Tuesday? Is your diet coach limiting your carbs to the point where you are pulling your hair out wondering what’s left you actually CAN eat? Ever wonder what #iifym means? It means: “It Fits Into Your Macros”—which is exactly what this meal does.
This was always a meal I would order at restaurants because it seemed like it was the ‘safest’ dish on the menu calorie-wise. I tweaked it further in the healthy direction by removing the light breading on it, which you won’t miss at all. Honestly, I never even knew the chicken in Chicken Marsala was dredged in flour before trying this recipe! Once you realize how easy it is to make and how mouthwatering it is to eat, you will want to make it again and again.
There’s been a pleasing trend in the food world I’ve been following closely: The Buddha Bowl. These bowls can go by a few other names: Sunshine bowls, Hippie bowls, and (most accurately) Macro bowls. The bowl is stuffed with the 3 macros plus lots of veggies that give the top of the bowl a rounded appearance resembling Buddha’s belly. However, these mouthwatering meals will not give YOU a “Buddha” belly! In case you were beginning to wonder what to do with your leftover chicken breast and rice, here’s your answer!
Memories of this wonderful recipe float around in my head from time to time, reminding me of my babysitter, Diana. She used to make it every so often for me as a kid, and I would get so excited! A few of months ago I caught up with her on Facebook, which made me feel the nagging need to have a go at making the healthy version of this mouthwatering meal myself. There is a small amount of white wine in the recipe, but the alcohol cooks out (so you don’t have to worry about getting drunk)!
