- 100 grams (3.5 ounces) boneless, skinless chicken breast
- ¼ tsp sea salt
- 1 tbsp Simple Girl Carolina Kick BBQ Sauce
- 2-3 large lettuce leaves
- Trim any visible fat off the chicken breast meat.
Place the chicken in a large pot of boiling, salted water.
Continue to boil the chicken until it's cooked well and reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
Remove chicken from water, set aside to cool.
Lay out the large lettuce leaves. You can use any type of lettuce you want, we used romaine and it tasted delicious!
Wrap the saucy chicken in lettuce leaves for taco-style dining.
Once the chicken is cool enough to handle, use your hands to shred the chicken.
Place the shredded chicken in a small bowl, add the Simple Girl Carolina Style BBQ Sauce, and toss until the chicken is fully coated.
Top with more Simple Girl Carolina Style BBQ Sauce, if desired.
Serve and enjoy!

Most non-sugar free barbecue sauces have 8 or more grams of sugar per serving… that is crazy! This sauce has only 5 calories and 1 carb in a 2 tablespoon serving. Avoid weight gain and blood sugar spikes by continuing to use this sauce for Phase 3 and for life!
