Creamy Tomato Basil Chicken

This Creamy Tomato Basil Chicken recipe is safe for Phase 2 of the HCG Diet and counts as 1 protein serving and 1 vegetable serving while on the low-calorie phase of the HCG Diet.

You may notice that the 100 gram serving of protein in this dish is comprised of 80 grams of chicken breast and 20 grams of cottage cheese. This is not an issue!

Per Dr. Simeons, there's no mixing of vegetables on the HCG Diet, but what about fruits and proteins? We interpret the manuscript to allow more than one type of fruit or protein to make up the stated serving per meal. According to our research, participants are allowed a protein serving of 100 grams of allowable proteins, which we think could be 50 grams of lean steak and 50 grams of shrimp if someone chose.
