This recipe is taken with permission from Chefy Brain. Oh, sorry you don’t know who Chefy Brain is. It’s Tammy Skye. From her highly rated hCG Diet Gourmet Cookbook.
I am calling Tammy the amazing chefy-brain because how you could come up with over 350 Recipes for Phase 2 (between the 2 volumes of her cookbooks- volume 1 has over 200 recipes, volume 2 has 150 recipes) with such a limited food list, I just don’t know! She is incredibly creative with food and this particular recipe was delicious.
I know it is because I made it and ate in in Phase 4 while having access to french fries, so you know when a recipe tastes good under those circumstances that it’s a winner.
And while you could simply read the recipe below, I really think you should watch the 5 minute demonstration cuz my son and I have some silliness goin’ on to send a little laugh and smile your way today. 😉
Cold Curried Chicken Salad
Posted with permission from Tammy Skye’s hCG Diet Gourmet Cookbook
- 100 grams chicken, diced
- 1 apple, diced
- 1.5 cups celery, diced (optional) hcgchica note: I think you should add it, it’s TOTALLY yummy- gives it this awesome crunch and makes it a larger serving.
- 1/4 cup water (you may need a little more depending on the level of heat in your pan)
- 2 TBS. Lemon Juice (about 1/2 a lemon)
- 1 TBS. Finely minced onion
- 1 clove of garlic, crushed and minced
- 1/4 TSP. Curry Powder or to taste (I often put more hehe)
- Dash of the following:
- Garlic powder
- Onion powder
- Cayenne powder
- Cinnamon (oh yes, don’t skip this!)
- Stevia to taste (oh yes, don’t skip this!)
In a small saucepan, lightly saute chicken in lemon juice until lightly brown. Add 1/4 cup water and spices. Stir well and simmer over low heat until liquid reduces to form a sauce and chicken is cooked well (this doesn’t take long at all if you diced the chicken small). Add water as needed to create the consistency you want. Chill, add chopped apple and celery, or omit the celery and serve over a green salad.
And some awesome being-silly-ness

I would LOVE a food delivery service that sends a week or even a few days worth of meal prep stuff for HCG diet phases.
I wonder if any food box companies would be willing to do it?
How many calories is this recipe?

This is will be of my favorite go to dishes – because we were in a hurry to have lunch today – I didn’t want to take the time to chill it – so – I added chicken broth and the miracle noodles! Oh my – fabulous – I love hot and spicy so I did heat it up a bit with Frank’s Hot Sauce – the herbs and spices add the best flavors – I’ll be getting the cookbook!
Thanks so much – down 10 pounds in 12 days and feeling thrilled!

I loooove this recipe! I am going to make it a lot. Thank you so much for posting it! And you and your son are too cute!!!
Aww so glad you enjoyed it @Sally J. Tammy skye sure knows her recipe stuff! My son and I have fun making the video. I’d do them more often if it wasn’t so much work lol.
This salad is so delicious, oh my gosh. I was getting so hungry, time to eat my P2 meal and this literally saved me from myself. Crisp apples with the strong, aromatic smell and flavor of spices sent me to heaven for a minute (or five). Thank you, I will have to purchase that cookbook.

Thanks for sharing HCGChica. Just wanna ask coz Ill start my first round tomorrow. On Phase 2, it is mentioned that we need to eat (1) protein, (1) veggie and (1) fruit. Does this recipe covers it all? Thank you!
I went to a weight loss clinic and they were hesitant to prescribe any hcg diet or injections. They believe in the paleo diet and phentermine. Any suggestions!!! Are your injections the same as there’s?
Hey @vannruffrider as far as I know escrow is still fulfilling all the hCG orders that went through so you should be getting yours in the near future- the shipping really can take quite awhile sometimes – especially if it’s gets stopped in customs.
thanks for reply actually I just received it today preciate that:-)
oh that’s great to hear @vanruffrider – I wanted to make sure I got back to you because Escrow has actually just stopped being able to sell hCG right now, however I know they have been fulfilling all prior orders so no one needs to worry at this point about that.

You and your precious son are the most adorable EVER!!! Seriously! I had a big ol’ smile the whole time!! You look fantastic, Rayzel…radiant and the picture of health!!! 🙂 I do have one question…I see that the recipe calls for 2 different veggies but I thought Simeon’s protocol specifically said not to mix the veggies. Is that something that has been determined to not be necessary? That would be cool! Let ,e know. Thanks for all you do!!!
Gwenn Hicks says
Good question, I would like to know also
hello, I’ve recently started watching your videos and reading up on your website. I wish I had of checked this out long ago. I’m doing my 4th round starting this weekend, my first round was awesome and I kept the weight off for almost a year and then slowly started to pick up my old habits and foods that weren’t good for me. R2 & 3 didn’t go well and ended up being a waste of time, I was cheating lots and I had no will power to fight my family eating all kinds of yummy things around me and they didn’t seem to care how I felt about that. I also realized I need to be prepared for this to work and I mean have meals cooked and ready to go because convenience plays a huge part for me, if I have to think about it too long or cook something when I’m already at ‘that point’ then I tend to reach for a cheat… 🙁 This time, I want to cook or at least prep my food a week in advance, so every Sunday night I’ll get my lunch and suppers ready for the week. I’m on a strict budget so I’m not going to be able to have a huge variety of things for the week so I will have to get creative with the few ingedients I can get each week So far the few recipes I’ve checked out sound great and I can’t wait to try them. Thanks for posting everything you do and I love the videos, you guys are so cute!!!
I didn’t know where to post this question, but what about mushrooms! ? Can I have portabellas on p2?

Thank you so much for the recipe! You and your son are both adorable. It is so hard to find creative recipes for Phase 2! Going to try this one tomorrow. Thank you so much. You make the protocol alot more fun 🙂
Aww thanks @Yasmine Korte-Baca ! This one was really good- you just have to make sure you only put a little stevia! – Rayzel
