I've been experimenting with the Zone for a few weeks because I truly enjoy delicious food, and initially found it challenging to make tasty meals. Every time I compose a great meal I just get so enthusiastic! I had to share this delicious yet so simple chicken meal with others on the Zone.
Serving size for typical female
1 chicken breast, 3 ounces (free range/organic if possible)
1 ounce turkey bacon (2 slices)
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon Fresh tarragon, remove from stem and chopped Salt and pepper to taste
