sounds similiar to the situation I am getting stuck in soon. I will be living on my ship. I am in the navy. I will be trying to diet for a show while the ship is in its training cycle too, which means long working hours. This will take some planning. Besides chicken. What about ground sirloin?? Any good meal plan ideas for micro only???

I did and have been doing chicken and fish in the micro. Fish is a breeze, i even do it at home when i dont wanna put the oven on.
Chicken takes a bit longer, i fillet them so they are sure to cook through. I cook them about 7-10min pending how many i have in there and they get obnoxiously hot. I never felt sick from them and they were always very moist.
My room-mate doesnt complain about the chicken. If hes not there i just leave the door open or open a window. The fish he isnt much a fan off but says its no biggie. I also just try to cook it when hes at class.
Ill continue to do so because it provides me food i want and know is more healthy than what i obtain in the cafe.

Healthier is right. Thanks bro, I appreicate it. I will be living on my ship again soon, and will be stuck with a micro. Have you ever done Brown rice in the micro, with a microwave rice cooker?

No. Not a huge fan of rice. i usually stick to bread and cereals for grains. Sometimes noodles.

I understand bro. OK. I just ate some protein and a whole grain bagel. mmm and some herbal tel since Its cold.

Can't you just use a real rice cooker? I mean you could even set it up and go to class, it's perfect for that. I forget about mine for hours at a time and it still comes out good.

DP I am not a student. I am in the navy on a ship. They are very picky about electric gear we use on board. I may be able to sneak it, but we will see. I can always eat oatmeal or sweet potatos for carbs.

Oh I got you confused with the guy who made the thread, sorry. Yeah if you have to microwave, oatmeal's always good with protein powder mixed in.

Yea, I hate rules. Fing haters. They make it tough to be a bodybuilder. I dont think a rice cooker, and an electric skillet will hurt the ships electrical load. lol...Its frustrating. I hope yall can make it work. Thats what its all about. Lastnight I was house sitting. I made Brown rice, and Ground sirloin, with onions, and green peppers. Thats on the menu today. Plenty of what I need. I also like to make whole wheat natty peanut butter and organic jam sandwhiches. Mmm good.

Cooked chicken is the way to go and then just freeze it when your done cooking it. Just make sure you vaccume seal it so you dont get freezer burn. When you reheat it, instead of using simple water, try some fresh lemon in the water or lime. That way when you steam life back into the chicken, your adding some flavor into it as well. Hot sauce added to the water works too. As long as its air tight in the freezer, you should be able to make quite a bit of it when your home and then just thaw when your ready.

I have never microwaved chicken.

Its fine. there are worse things. Its better than not eating, or eating out. You save money with a mirowave, and can still control your calories. In other words, you can still eat like a bodybuilder. I am military, and when i stayed in base quarters I had a microwave, rice cooker, toaster, and electric skillet. i could do about anything, and I had a blender too.

microwaving chicken is for n00bs.

You can microwave chicken but it won't be really very tasty. You can always coat it with BBQ sauce but that stuff is usually laced with fructose or sugar of some sort and even then the texture will be off.
You can overcook chicken, especially breast and make it pretty dry.
I recently changed the way I cooked chicken because of my reading on AGEs (Advanced Glycation End products). These are toxic compounds that are developed during the cooking process of meats. Microwaving and boiling produce very few AGEs. Frying, baking, BBQ = lots.
Basically anything that has been browned, seared, or caramelized is going to have these chemicals in them. They appear play a role in a lot of inflammatory, degenerative diseases.
Millard reaction products are also something to google when you have time to read.
Basically now I take the chicken breast and microwave it till nearly done, then transfer it to a pan to finish it off. I usually do a whole family pack in one go and freeze the diced, done chicken so I can throw together a stir fry or similar in a couple minutes.
