12 Days of Holidays... Day 1 - Macro Friendly Chicken!

Let’s start the countdown to 2017, and make it our BEST YEAR YET! I love the 12 days of Christmas… so we’re gonna use that. For the 12th day, I’m giving you 12 of my favorite chicken recipes. Because I know you eat lots of chicken, and even though there’s lots of ways to prep it, chicken can get tiresome.


I hope you find some new favorites!


  1. Chicken Bolognese + Zucchini Noodles - From an AmandaLouise client and guest blogger, Katrina!

  2. Baked Chicken Breasts - You could skip the EVOO and use spray if you don't have the fat left in your macros…. Good, simple recipe.

  3. Macro Friendly Crockpot BBQ Chicken - Woohoo! A Crockpot means easy prep and a good portion for more than one meal.

  4. Blackened Chicken with Avocado Cream Sauce and Cilantro Lime Quinoa - Talk about shaking up your normal chicken recipes!
