Grilled Lemon Garlic Chicken with Steamed Green Beans

Posted by SLIMTOX Team Member on

Creating an HCG diet-approved recipe for chicken and beans requires adhering to the dietary restrictions of the HCG diet, which is a very low-calorie diet. Here's a simple recipe for Grilled Lemon Garlic Chicken with Steamed Green Beans that complies with the HCG diet guidelines:


For the Chicken:

  • 100 grams of skinless, boneless chicken breast
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced and zested
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • A pinch of dried basil (optional)

For the Green Beans:

  • 100 grams of fresh green beans
  • Salt and pepper to taste


1. Prepare the Chicken:

  • In a small bowl, combine the minced garlic, lemon juice, lemon zest, a pinch of dried basil (if desired), and a dash of salt and pepper.
  • Place the chicken breast in a resealable plastic bag or a shallow dish and pour the lemon-garlic mixture over it.
  • Seal the bag or cover the dish and marinate the chicken in the refrigerator for at least 15-20 minutes. You can marinate it longer for added flavor, but keep it within the HCG diet calorie restrictions.

2. Grill the Chicken:

  • Preheat a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat.
  • Remove the chicken breast from the marinade, allowing any excess liquid to drip off.
  • Grill the chicken for approximately 3-4 minutes per side or until it's fully cooked. Ensure the internal temperature reaches 74°C (165°F).
  • Remove the chicken from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing it into thin strips.

3. Steam the Green Beans:

  • While the chicken is grilling, steam the fresh green beans. Place them in a microwave-safe dish with a lid or a steamer basket.
  • Add a small amount of water to the dish or steamer basket (about 2 tablespoons).
  • Season the green beans with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cover the dish or basket and microwave or steam the beans for 2-3 minutes or until they are tender but still crisp.

4. Serve:

  • Arrange the grilled lemon garlic chicken strips on a plate.
  • Serve the steamed green beans alongside the chicken.
  • Garnish with a lemon wedge if desired for extra flavor.

Enjoy this HCG diet-compliant chicken and green beans recipe as a satisfying and flavourful meal while staying within the calorie restrictions of the diet.
