4 Block Zone Meal
2 c Tomatoes, sliced

1 1/3 c Spinach*

2 oz. Grilled Chicken, sliced

3 oz. Feta Cheese, crumbled

1 1/3 Tsp. Olive Oil (divided into 1/3 tsp and 1 tsp)

Chopped Garlic, salt, pepper, and basil to taste

The fourth carb block will come from the delicious 4 oz. glass of wine you will enjoy with the meal!


Preparation:
Prepare the spinach as desired but add 1/3 tsp olive oil and a dollop of chopped garlic for added flavor.  


Place the slices of chicken in the middle of a microwaveable plate and top with the Feta.  Microwave the chicken and cheese for approximately 1 minute, or until Feta is sufficiently melted.  


Around the chicken and melted Feta, arrange the sliced tomatoes and spinach.  Sprinkle salt, pepper, and basil over entire plate as desired.  Drizzle the remaining olive oil onto the tomatoes and spinach.  


Serve with a 4 oz. glass of delicious wine! ( or, in my case, a "SunShine Wheat" beer)


* The Spinach that we used was the frozen, bagged, "Chopped Baby Spinach".  We cooked it in a skillet as prescribed by the directions and did not measure it out until it was fully cooked.  If you want to use fresh spinach and cook it down yourself, keep in mind that you will need quite a bit more of the fresh stuff than you will think, as it cooks down by a fair amount.
