Getting bored with chicken...

So, nearly nine weeks in and chicken is getting tiresome (interestingly enough, mushrooms? still awesome).

We eat a lot of chicken. We eat some ground turkey, and my wife has beef and I have seafood on occasion, but the vast majority of our 'lean' is chicken.

  • Chicken cooked in Honey Mustard.
  • Chicken cooked in Italian Dressing.
  • Chicken cooked with Taco Seasoning.
  • Chicken cooked with Ginger and Soy Sauce.
  • Chicken cooked with Tomato, Basil, and Oregano.
  • Chicken cooked with BBQ Sauce.
  • Chicken cooked with Buffalo Sauce.
  • Chicken cooked with Mrs. Dash.
  • Chicken cooked with Lemon Pepper.
  • Chicken cooked with Shawarma Seasoning.
  • Chicken cooked with Fajita Spices and Peppers.
  • Chicken cooked with Ranch Dressing.

Chicken. Chicken. Chicken.

Turkey is more limited. We get 99% fat free ground turkey. It's mostly in an Italian sauce or in taco seasoning, and while it's a good change of pace, it's just not as good as chicken.

Beef and Seafood is pretty rare in general, since I don't eat beef, she doesn't eat seafood, and cooking two leans is a pain in the butt.

We have a lot of variety in our chicken, but it is still chicken nearly every day. It may be time to start exploring some new recipes.

Funnily enough, I don't really get sick of my Medifast meals, even when they have a similar level of overlap.

Anyone else have any ideas on how to stop the cycle of endless chicken boredom?


  1. Wow. You guys have me beat. I've been cooking mine in olive oil for 4 weeks straight.

  2. I did that the first few day? But yeah, a variety of spices, low-carb dressings, sauces, and etc make for a big difference. You get condiments on Medifast, use them!

    Good luck with your chicken :)

  3. I know it's sometimes hard to find, but buffalo or elk is good in anything that typically involves ground beef (try maybe Whole Foods or a local butcher?). I also like Garden Burgers (not fake burgers that try to taste like real burgers).

    1. Buffalo and Elk is tough to find, but Whole Foods is a good choice. It's worth a shot to get some variety into play, at least!
