    I have a load of errands to run to be bothered with cooking tomorrow, in which I'll be out most of the day after a quick run to the grocery store.

    I need a crockpot. If you I have frozen chicken breasts, can you just put it right in? Or thaw first

    Put it right in. It will take a bit longer, but won't be a problem.

    Put in with hot sauce or soy sauce = easy flavoring
    or cook in diet soda (serious) comes out very moist.

    love the cheat crepe idea would love to see u do that!

    Q: when I cook frozen chicken I get a bunch of what looks like coagulated blood/broth floating around. I usually dump it along with the broth and fat. Is this normal? I'll take a pic next time I do it if a better explanation is needed.

    Ewwww....like Bob, I too always buy fresh. Usually I buy ground chicken breast. Easy to cook and work with.

    Yes with the bagged frozen chicken...However...If you buy it fresh and cook within time you will have better results. The only frozen chicken you'll see me eat is when I buy in bulk, measure out 200 or 100 gram portion sizes and freeze them in individual bags.

    Even then they have to be on sale.

    Thaw them in room temperature, or in cold water for best flavors before cooking. Do NOT thaw in hot water. This can destroy natual flavors.

    If you cook your frozen chicken while it's frozen you are really doing the flavors an injustice.

    Just my .02.

    Here's a question since were on the subject of chicken and macros. Meats that lose a lot of fat when cooking. For example microwaved bacon, burgers, etc. How do you track them? 100g raw may have 15g of fat but what if there's only 8 left after cooking? That's an extra 63kcals your counting... If you're talking about 1/2lbs of meat that adds up. If I weren't lazy, I'd weigh raw and use nutritiondata.self.com to calculate the 'cooked' macros based on the amount of protein (which isn't lost mostly).

    Track exactly as labeled on package. Period.
    Mine at my store comes raw and cooked

    usually 4oz raw = 3oz cooked, go by the same macros.

    That's the way I do it too. Some labels with have both, if not, just stick with 3 oz cooked with the 4 oz raw macros. I know Perdue puts both macros on their label.

    Here is what you do, weigh raw weight just one time, then cook with desired cooking method, and then weigh again. Now you have the cooked weight of the meat. Like me i weigh my chicken cooked, because i know 4 ounces weigh 3.2oz baked.

    Not at all a cheat meal, but my day to day foods. If you care to take a look here's some garlic herb chicken thighs. Fortunately for me, came out juicy enough to fall off the bone --but also cooked all the way to the bone.

    Nice! I cooked some thighs myself over the weekend. I used garlic pepper seasoning, turmeric, low sodium chicken broth. Crazy juicy.

    I was just in Ireland and took a tour of the Guinness storehouse. Had a "Guinness Stew" and a big old pint to wash it down. Not quite sure what was in it but it was damn good. Unfortunately, it looked the same going out as it did going in. haha.

    cbsharpe: Thanks bro. How did you cook your chicken thighs ? Bake, bbq? I'm glad you're not one of those guys eating plain, unseasoned , deskinned boneless chicken breasts. How do people even do that?

    Yeah, can't do plain chicken. But I cook mine over the stove in a non-stick pan. I add some EVOO and cook them for a little bit then add some low sodium broth along with the herbs and spices.

    In the winter time, the crockpot is my friend as well. Can't live without that.

    Wow, this was a great idea. So I got me a single serving of protein powder at CVS and I mixed it with 1 cup of plain Greek yogurt +2 stevia. IF i had cocoa powder, I'd surely put that in to. The plain yogurt is quite sour and is more made for Indian and greek savory dishes, so that Stevia helped it.

    This definitely curbed a little edge on my cutting diet! I basically made some Protein pudding. Hmm, I probably wouldn't eat this on a cheat day, but alas not bad.

    P : 47g, C: 17 F: 2
    Almost reached my carb limit for the day though, but I can manage still.
