On the Food Network show, “Fat Chef”, overweight chefs are profiled. They work very hard cooking for others and rarely take time to have a healthy meal. They grab a bite here and there and at the end of the day all the “tastes” of food add up to 7,000 calories. I can see how that happens! Fortunately I stopped with a few samples of everything I made and no real damage was done.
I did discover, however, that I really enjoyed the bacon wrapped chicken! This does not fit very well into my healthy recipe collection, but just take chicken breast, pound it out, stuff it with pepper jack cheese and a slice of jalapeno, rub it in your favorite spice rub, wrap nitrate free good bacon around it, secure it with a toothpick and bake it at 375 for 20-25 minutes.
