    I would recommend removing the “seasoning salt” from the Chicken Taco Salad recipe as most seasoning salts I have found have sugar in its ingredient list!

      we recommend you check all your seasonings. We use Mrs. Dash seasoning salt and here are the ingredients. We also shop at Whole Foods, Sprouts or the diabetic isle and always read labels. This will keep you from accidentally using a product that contains sugar Ingredients
      onion, black pepper, parsley, basil

    Can you use grpund Turkey in this recipe. And what is the calorie count?

    • admin on February 23, 2015 at 7:42 pm

      Turkey is not on phase 2. Calories vary depending on amount of veggies used to adjust your daily calories. Usually around 180-230 cal the protein will be 86 cal for the chicken breast.

    Instead of pan frying chicken in pieces, I made a rub using the spices, lemon juice and water to make a paste and BBQ’d the chicken breast. It was so yummy on the greens.
