I think cooked onions would be really good in this. Another thing you can add is a little soy sauce. None of these changes add points to the recipe. Let me know how you like it. Or my 1 point Chicken and Corn Chowder. Add 2 tbsp of teriyaki sauce and stir, cooking for about 10 minutes or until the rice is warmed through. Add diced roasted chicken marinated in teriyaki sauce and cook for another minutes over medium heat. The rest of the ingredients are low as well.
I made this last night and it was really good! I missed lunch so actually had 3 helpings and it was still only 1 SP!!! Does the chicken need to be cooked before you add it to the skillet? And how long do you marinade it?
I like to use rotisserie chicken but sometimes that adds ww points. Hi Jen… When I run the ingredients through multiple nutrition apps I always get different answers! Love this recipe but I use multiple veggies to carrots and peas- corn and green beans.
I also have to have real rice. I also added 1 teaspoon of the sesame oil and I think the flavor is worth it. Love your ideas of using rotisserie chicken in meals calling for chicken.
Not everyone is ready to embrace the cauliflower rice. I had grilled chicken breast already cooked, so just cut them up and added teriyaki sauce to marinade. I also increased the teriyaki sauce on rice cauliflower. Hubby likes it too. Notify me of follow-up comments by email.

Crusty Chicken I rolled the new Medifast chese pizza bites in the bag before I opened it.
I used 4 oz of chicken that I dipped in one beaten egg. Then I dipped the chicken in the pizza crumbs. I sprayed the pan with Pam and cooked for 3 minutes per side. I threw away the extra egg, but put the few crumbs left on top while cooking.
I ate this with a serving of canned green beans as a contrast to the spicy chicken. I have only been on medifast 11 days and am very happy with m loss of 11 pds. I will be checking hee often for ideas. I have been on MF for a month and love it. Anyone has a similiar experience or thoughts on how to make it better? This is a great site. I need some kind of recipe for turkey burgers, of course without the bun.
I just have to say thank you to everyone here. But this website made me feel so much better. I hear and hope it gets easier with time!
But now I have some great ideas on what to do with the oatmeal and tons of other stuff! I am almost done with my second week of Medifast and I have to say, so far so good! I am happy I found this website with so many great ways to make the food more satisfying!! I found the chocolate chip pancakes to be pretty bad…. I add a few walnuts to my pancakes and just a tiny drizzle of honey obviously try not to do that too often but it does make it taste better … YUMMM!
I too hated the chocolate chip pancakes but the walnuts made them taste much better… Just a small amount though becuase of the increase in calories and fat. Thanks for all the good ideas as I am just starting out and am having a difficult time enjoying the taste of many of the meals, as is. Any suggestions for when I have that chip craving?
Lisa, have you tried Kale chips? Wash the Kale, pull the leaves from the stem and tear into bite-size pieces. Dry with paper towels and put on baking pan in single layer. Spray with Butter Pam and sprinkle with Mrs. Dash or spice of your choice. Bake at degrees for 15 minutes. This gets a crunchy texture and Kale is sooo good for you.
I love it that we r all in this together. I am only on day 6 but I have lost 13 lbs and I love all the recipies and support on this site. Thanks for the ideas everyone and keep em conning! Im sure I will have some to share eventually too. My hubby and I started 1 week ago, and of course he has lost 8 lbs and I have lost 3 lbs. One of our combined favs are Southwest eggs made as omelet with the Vegetarian sloppy joe as filler.
We split it our course, and have a tsp of salsa on top. I am seeking out other combos such as this so please post what else you all are doing! Brand new to this Medifast thing—safely made it to Day 5 without cheating.
My tips, so far, for any newbies are: Literally gagged them down with 20oz of water!! What is up with those things? Love the recipes on here…feel like this is pretty easy! Sarah 84 days until Spring Break! I dip the honey mustard pretzels in various mustards. My favorite is a deli style horseradish mustard. Hi Everyone, I have been on Medifast for a week now and I lost 7 lbs!
It was hard at first but am getting use to it. I am glad to be able to have ideas on how to use the Medifast packets to make something different to eat. Good luck to everyone who is on Medifast! The smell is also horrendous. Any recipe ideas would be greatly appreciated!!!
I add the following ingredients to the eggs: Makes all the difference in the world! Best advice I can give is to cook on the stove in a small frying pan MUCH better that when you cook in the microwave. Added some onion powder which also helped. Mix eggs with water and let them soak for a while. Take out the veggies and cook the eggs; then add the veggies back in. Some salsa helps, too. I add a half serving of egg beaters, try the southwestern. You can also add chopped red pepper and onion to just medifast serving.
Always do scrambled, never microwave, use Pam and scramble in fry pan. Hi, I know this is a bit late, but I use Mrs. Add it before you put it in the microwave. This is my 5th day on MF. I did the eggs according to directions, added 1 tbsp. Drop this bag into a pot of boiling water and boil for 15 minutes.
You can use the salsa on top of the cooked omelet. If you are craving for a pasta, there is a shirataki noodle that is 20 calories, no-oodle noodle and miracle noodle with no calories. That can be your free food.
You can also use the tomato soup for a sauce, diced some tomatoes and blend it and add ground meat. I am soooo excited to get started on this program. Since I am going to be in my first week, can I use these variations right away or do I need to wait until my body starts adjusting? I know my TSFL coach told me to try to stick to the program very strictly to see the desired results. Thanks in advance for any help or advice!
Just finished week 3 and have lost 10 lbs. I am a bit of a food snob, so this has been difficult. I am not a fan of the oatmeal or soups, at all…. I did accidentally find that the cappucino is better cold than hot.
I filled my shaker with water to make a shake and acidentally added a cappucino instead of a shake mix. Its a little quirky and foamy after shaking at first…. When I fixed it hot, half of it foamed and overflowed and the fiber was very noticable and gave it a sludgy consistency. Any suggestions for the oatmeal or soups? The consistency of the oatmeal was awful and the taste not much better. I like chicken and veg stir fry or a big veg omlette for lean and green.
I use the egg beaters and it is a big serving of eggs. The chicken and veggie omlette filled up a regular dinner plate. Many fast food places have a grilled chx salad with mixed greens, cucumber and a few tomatoes. Just watch out for added bacon and cheese and be sure to use you own dressing or read the dressing labels before using it…the majority are not good for you.
I also have made a home-ade chili with ground turkey or chicken, low salt canned diced tomato, onion, green chilis or bell pepper, a little water and a bit of taco seasoning or add your own seasoning. Would also be good with frozen veg meat substitute crumbles…just be sure to check labels for other carb filler additives and carb counts.
I added cocoa powder and coffee for a great treat. Oz today he talked about teas that help with wt. He specifically mentioned Pu-ehr tea that shrinks fat cells, he recommended 2 cups in the morning, White tea, 2 cups at lunch that boosts metabolism, and Chickweed tea, 1 cup with early dinner for late night appetite suppression.
He also talked about coconut palm sugar that regulates glycemic index without highs and lows that cause cravings and fat storage. It is used 1: Used my kruerig using my StarBucks house Blend and made a cup of coffee. I let it cool to room temp and then mixed it with one Truvia and a cappucino packet with the mixer jar with the ball in it.
No weird texture no protein lumps! Any suggestion for Green sides? My mom suggested a coliflower garlic mash, like mashed patatos and it was great. Any help would be great thanks! Preheat oven to Coat cauliflower in olive oil or pam Sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic Place on cookie sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper as liner Cook about minutes.
