    Hi, my name is Tracy Baker and I am one of the owners of SI Medical Weight Loss
    and this is my friend, Tammy Barber, and she’s also one of our providers at SI Medical.
    We are here today to learn how Tammy does her mozzarella chicken,
    which is delicious! She has adapted this recipe,
    so that it fits within the high-protein/low-carb that we like to promote there at the clinic.
    But it’s just an example of another recipe that she’s adapted and made it work,
    and it’s still delicious. So I’m gonna turn it over to Tammy. Hi!
    Mozzarella chicken – it is super easy and it’s kid friendly.
    It’s high in protein, low in carbs. A simple recipe.
    You sear the chicken breast. I use chicken tenderloins
    because I serve it to my grandchildren and they can’t eat a whole chicken breast,
    but they can eat one of these.
    I just use my favorite marinara sauce and I just spoon a little bit on
    the top. And then I, on top of that,
    I put just a handful of mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese.
    I do salt and pepper the chicken when I sear it,
    and then I put just a smidge of garlic powder in it,
    stick it in the oven for 20 minutes and it’s done.
    And you can cook as many or as few as you need for the
    gathering you have. Nice!
    Want some? Yes! (laughs) I love this job.
    There you go. Thank you.
    It’s really good! I’m glad you like it. I love it!
    Thank you. Cheers!
    So, you can find this recipe at
    Print it off, take it to your own kitchen and see what you can do with it.
    Oh, I forgot to tell you that
    another version of this recipe is to use bruschetta instead of marinara sauce.
    The grandkids might not eat it, but as adults…
    it’s fabulous!
