This is one of my favorites on the South Beach diet. I usually eat this for breakfast or for a snack; it really satisfies my "sweet tooth". For those on South Beach, count the pecans as part of your daily nut allowance.
Found this recipe on allrecipies.com (courtesy of Vicki Frew). I cooked mine for 15 minutes before I added cheese, green onions and bacon bits. I was afraid the cheese would be cooked to much if it was on the whole time. Miss Annie is right--after the 1st time I made it I started skipping the browning too and just put raw skinless, boneless chicken breasts in pan and poured the other ingredients over top. Cooks up just fine either way.
This is for the meat-lovers! I normally create ground beef dishes with meat substitutes in mind, but I don't believe that this can be duplicated in that way. I created this totally for my boyfriend; it's not "saucy", tomato-ey and loaded with hot peppers, but it's full of the aroma and flavor of cumin and garlic. Sprinkle a little Oaxacan cheese (kind of a "Mexican string cheese") in the enchiladas, too, and try this recipe in tacos or taco salad as well. And not a single store-bought packet of anything sacrificed its life to make this dish!
I got this delicious recipe from www.atkinsdietbulletboard.com the orginal chef is Bikergoddess. We all thank her for creating this great recipe. It's not exactly like pizza, but it's pretty close. I like it alot. I've made it twice now, and will be making it over and over again.
I printed this years ago from about.com who listed it from the National Pork Producers Council. This is a great recipe and when my grill was out of commission, I tried in my crock pot as well. I am glad I fought the temptation to increase the lemon and garlic, because the amounts listed are just right.
I use this blend when seasoning for chicken or beef is called for in Mexican-style recipes for my South Beach Diet.....no sugar, flour or cornstarch to be found in this recipe. It's not too spicy; if you want a bit more of a "kick", you may want to add some red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper. This recipe makes 2Tbsp plus 1 1/2 tsp of seasoning.
My grandmother NEVER told me this was eggplant, or I never would have eaten it. Darn it! I guess I really DO like eggplant. The nerve of her! Prep time includes time to allow eggplant "sweat" or drain.
This is a delicious chicken recipe that pleases my whole family. At 1.5 grams carb per serving it goes well with a carb controlled diet, but those not on carb control love it too. I serve this with a crisp salad and white wine.
Hope you enjoy this as much as we do!

I got this idea from Suzanne Somers in her book Fast & Easy. She uses chicken and adds some spices I'm not crazy about. I changed the recipe around to suit my tastes, and it's perfect for those of us Somersizing and on other low carb diets. Naked? That comes from the fact that these babies are pure filling, no wonton skins at all.
