A buffalo chicken recipe, and anticipating a big weigh in moment.

I have a feeling that tomorrows weigh in will give me the 150 pounds lost notch in my belt, I am really close now and its just a gut feeling that I will in fact hit that number in the am. IF I do I will post up a few more compare pictures @ that 150 lost mark and I will be within 9 pounds of having less than 100 pounds to lose and that is yet another milestone for me, so I may have a couple of milestones to report in the next couple weeks, with the first one starting tomorrow hopefully.

Everything else is on track for the most part but you will notice that the deficit tracking section to the left ha not been updated, thats because I have not exercised for the most part because my foot has been bothering me for almost a week now and I don't want to do anything that can hurt or injure it, so until the pain goes away exercise shall be non existent.

On a different note I did fool around with making a buffalo chicken sammie recipe which came out very much better than I had expected it to and wanted to share that with you.

what you will need.

shredded chicken (I used thigh and breast meat mixed which was seasoned)
light Italian bread
Franks hot sauce or the equivalent
low fat mozzarella cheese light ranch dressing (blue cheese for those who like it) olive oil cooking spray sandwich maker

Shred the chicken into a bowl and shake on as much Franks hot sauce as you like (I like a lot) mix it up so that the chicken is covered in the sauce, next lay the bread on a plate and put 1/2 oz shredded low fat mozzarella cheese onto it, put about 2oz of the shredded chicken on top of the cheese and give it an extra shake or 3 of the Franks to keep it moist throughout cooking, then cover the chicken with another 1/2 oz of the mozzarella cheese and place the second slice of bread on top of that. spray your preheated sandwich maker with a light coat of the olive oil cooking spray and lay the completed sandwich into the maker and grill it up, three minutes later you have a buffalo chicken sandwich that is oh so tasty, remove it from the sammie maker and serve with some light ranch dressing to dip it into. A single sandwich made this way costs about 280 calories and then add whatever calories that the ranch costs (would depend on brand I think what we have was 60 calories per 2 T) and just like that an under 300 calorie buffalo chicken sammie is created. for those of you that are thinking "mozz cheese on buffalo chicken?" yessir, it adds a bit of texture, makes it feel naughty and most importantly it helps to hold the whole sandwich together, I hope you enjoy it if you try it, I thought it was pretty good as did wify, I think some finely chopped red onion would be good in this as well I just didn't have any so they were not used.

With that another post has come to an end, and I hope to be able to post up some new pictures in the morning of me at 150 pounds lost. Thank you for reading and don't forget to check out tomorrows post.

As Ever


  1. I don't like hot sauce - - or buffalo-ish stuff, but if I did, I'd surely be trying that sandwich! ;)


    I can't wait for your big "I lost 150" post tomorrow! That's, like, the biggest deal I've ever heard of!!! You should be on tv or something. Can I call your local news station and tell them to find you and interview you tomorrow??? It will likely be a BIG day for you! :)

  2. My wife does not like hot sauce or buffalo wings or stuff like that. When I made these sandwiches she was affraid to try at first, but after she did she could not believe how much she loved them. Now she asks me to make them often.
