I haven't tried this yet, but to "The Next Number" and your post - this is labeled LOW CARB not LOW CALORIE/FAT. Read up some on Atkins/South Beach and you may find the low fat/low cal diets aren't always the healthiest for you and perhaps removing processed foods and going with whole foods would be better?
This recipe is so good, I have made it twice and plan to make it a regular dish. The chicken is so moist and juicy. And I used three chicken breasts and it came out great both times.

Why the heck would you need 1 cup of oil? I only need 2 tbsp to saute a piece of chicken myself...

I would consider this recipe because it is low in carbs.

Without even trying it I can tell that 1 cup of olive oil to 1 6 - 8 oz chicken breast is WAY OUT OF PROPORTION for sauteeing. Olive Oil POACHING, maybe, but it will never brown. More like a chicken vesuveo but without all the great spicing.

This sounds good if you increase the chicken and decrease the oil. I think there may have been an error when entering the ingredients or the number of servings because a 1/3lb chicken patty doesn't sound like enough for 5 servings unless this were an appetizer. I am initially giving this a 3 star rating because I haven't tried it, but will adjust once I have a chance to make this.

I feel one cup olive oil was a lot of oil.

This sticks to south beach but the olive oil is way high. You are only allowed 2tbsp per meal because of the high caloric value. Also, chicken patties are often processed and sometimes have other meats included. If you were to cut down on the olive oil, use boneless skinless white meat, and keep your portions on track this could work.

I think the nutrition facts on this recipe are incorrect. 4.66 g of protein for a chicken product? Don't you get that much protein out of one MacDonalds chicken McNugget? 1 "cup" of olive oil? Is this a chicken flavored olive oil shake? This recipe is "off."
