Chicken Curry Cups

For those of you who struggle with weight loss or maintenance for that matter,  here's a recipe to fool your taste buds.  With every diet program I've been on, and there have been many, I try to circumvent the obvious selections, that is, a slab of chicken or a lonely piece of fish, etc.  A great way to do this is to turn to your spice cabinet or stock up on fresh herbs.  Spices have been my lifeline.

The recipe serves one famished person but you can double or triple it for family members.   The inspiration came from my weight loss plan guidebook, however,  I omitted celery and apple from the mix and used more spices.  I served it in a lettuce cup but you can also put the chicken in a tortilla or bread or mix with pasta for a different twist.


1 6 oz chicken breast , diced, no skin or bone

1/4 c water

2 Tbsp lemon juice

1 Tbsp minced onion or shallot

1 clove garlic, minced

1/4 tsp curry powder

dash of the following spices:
garlic powder
onion powder
cayenne pepper
stevia or truvia sweetener

Cook the chicken and lemon juice in a small saucepan until barely browned.  Add the water and all the spices.  Simmer until chicken is done and the sauce is thicker.  You may need to add additional water.  At this point you can serve or chill and serve later.  Garnish with cilantro for more flavor.
