Crackslaw with Chicken – Reduced Calorie Option

Using chicken is a great idea if you want something with fewer calories yet offering the same great flavor as beef crackslaw gives you. The following crackslaw with chicken recipe is really tasty and perfect for a low carb diet whether you are following Atkins or another low carb diet regime.

The crackslaw with chicken recipe itself is very similar to the beef version because chicken is versatile enough to be a perfect beef substitute but of course you can apply your own tweaks should you wish. Chicken is lower in calories than beef. If you’re low carbing then you probably aren’t counting your calories, just your carbs, but calories do matter so you might want to try this if your low carb diet isn’t working properly and you’re wondering whether you’re still having more calories than your body can burn. Try this crackslaw with chicken dish for size.

Chicken or Beef: Either is Fine

Swapping beef for chicken affects the total calories but it does not affect the net carbs, so you can use whichever you prefer, or if there is something on sale at the grocery store just use whatever they have, even turkey or lamb or perhaps a mixed ground meat package but take a peek at the label. Here in Holland they often sneak sugar and chemicals into their ground meat (seriously!) – better safe than sorry when making crackslaw with chicken or beef. Continue reading
