Evening meal

We've marinated just HALF a chicken in our favourite peri-peri seasoning mixed with a little olive oil.  If you have a favourite marinade, then use that instead, or simply sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper. The cost of this meal is around £1.50 per person using half a chicken (for 2 people). 
Our salad is rocket and parmesan, lightly coated with olive oil and seasoned.  There's a corn cob on the side and some buttered new potatoes.  We have a spoonful of coleslaw too.  The total cals for this meal is under 600.  We only have a rough count of the calories because we don't want it to take over our lives.  Keeping a mental total of the calories as we go through the day comes naturally for us now.  We work on the principle that if we are wrong, then our weight doesn't go down.  Fortunately, we have usually had a good guess at calories, and our weight has dropped.

If you don't have time, there is always the supermarket hot chicken, but it will cost more.  Add a bag of prepared salad and you're half way there.  I use frozen corn cobs when they are out of season.  The thing is, eat tasty food and hopefully you will feel satisfied.  I can remember some boring diets that restricted eating the crispy chicken skin.  Not for us, the bits that were crispy were eaten, and we thoroughly enjoyed it too.
