I'm really really wanting a fried chicken sandwich for lunch. There is this place nearby that fries it fresh on order...yum...I wonder how much a boneless friend chicken breast withOUT skin is worth?

Maybe you should just have it, no fries with it, get that craving out of your system, then get right back on your program. That a lot of times avoids an all out binge.
The way you think determines the way you feel, and the way you feel influences the way you act.

you could get it, prepare yourself to only eat half and only eat half, or order a side salad, take out the bread and eat the chicken w/ the salad!
??? good luck, and place your attention on how fun tonight may be!

i have a recipe for baked fried crumble melba toasts into a fine mist...soak the chicken in milk with a couple drops of a hot sause or put ground red pepper in the cracker mix...very lightly bread the chicken...put on foil lined pan - spray with pam for grilling and really does taste and crunch like really fried chicken

Try slicing some chicken breasts,and browning on a high temp (like 7 out of 10) in a LITTLE olive oil, I do this for salads and stir frys cause it gives the chicken a good fried taste with out being gross. Remember to blot off the excess oil to lower the calories.

This is a good starting point, but you really need an exercise plan to maximize the results. Even if it is just walking. Get moving!
