Indian Saag Curry Chicken *Revisited*

I first created this recipe and while it was very good, I wanted to change the cheese to Laughing Cow Lite so it is even creamier because you can use 2 wedges as a Healthy Fat.  I also brought the condiments be within plan.  I really didn't miss the extra spices.  Here is the original recipe, but I will be making this version from now on:

6 oz Chicken Breast Tenders
1.5 cups Spinach, fresh
2 wedges Laughing Cow Lite Swiss Cheese
*Note - Laughing Cow cheese is not recommended by Medifast Nutrition Support, however they do give guidelines for how to incorporate it here.
1 tsp curry powder

Cut up raw chicken and cook in pan with a bit of water, until no longer pink in the middle. Set aside. In a bit of water, saute the spinach until cooked. Add chicken and curry powder and mix together. Add 2 wedges of Laughing Cow lite cheese and mix until creamy.

This counts as 1 lean, 3 green, 1 healthy fat and 2 condiments.

Week 6 Weigh In

3.8 pounds lost for week 6! That brings my total weight loss for 6 weeks to 27.2 lbs!! I am noticing my clothes are fitting so much better and I think I am starting to look thinner in my face. No one has really mentioned that I am looking thinner, but I think people are a little apprehensive to mention it. I can see my clothes getting baggier and baggier so I know it is working. This is seriously the easiest diet to follow!

I did have one ordeal when over the weekend when trying to eat out with my husband. I ended up having to send back 2 salads because they just didn't get it right. I hate sending food back, but I am not going to pay for something I just can't eat. I ordered a grilled chicken salad with no carrot, no cheese, no pecans, balsamic vinaigrette on the side with a side of grilled shrimp. The first salad they brought me had grilled chicken with pasta, alfredo sauce, cheese, balsamic vinaigrette & shrimp on the side. Sent it back.

The 2nd salad they brought me was iceberg lettuce mix with carrot, cheddar cheese and crispy chicken. Sent it back and explained again what I wanted. The 3rd salad was correct and very good! I felt so stupid having to send back 2 salads, but really? The waiter was super nice about it all so he did get an extra tip since he was so awesome about making sure I got what I wanted.

This is now my record for sending this back. What is your record?
