Making chicken more filling

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created January 05, 2012 at 10:28 PM

Whenever my boyfriend and I eat chicken, 1 hour later, we're still hungry. Even if we eat twice the amount than we would with beef/pork.
The last time I placed an order at the butcher, I accidentally ordered too much chicken, and I know we're going to be hungry!

So, what tricks do you use to make chicken more filling?

Things I've tried that work well:
* Cooking with bacon fat.
* Cooking with bacon fat AND adding bacon to it.
* Cooking with coconut milk.
* Cooking with chicken bone stock.
Any other ideas?

---- edit -----

I'm just annoyed that in every question I post no one really seems to read the question before posting so they just post the same thing I already said. Like:
Title: Are there other ways to prepare eggs?
Details: Other than frying and poaching.

Answer #1 Fried eggs are really good.
Answer #2 You could poach them?

Do you know how excruciating it is to see the orange envelope, get excited "Yay! Someone answered my question, I want to see what they say!" and then they just repeat what I said already? It makes me so sad!
It's not like someone is paying you $20 just to post! (If someone is, how can I get in on that?)

in your case with chicken, you portion control and feel hungry later rather quickly. I am that way with say, Peruvian charcoaled chicken. However, if i simply grill chicken and only add some salt/pepper or even eat it plain, I can eat much less AND not feel hungry. very unintuitive but the palatability of food (esp if using artificial flavorings/additives) influences your appetite heavily, more so than low-carb

no what I'm saying to you is any food, if made to be very palatable, is easy to overeat and/or will influence your body weight setpoint. In other words, eating tastier food won't just mean eating more calories but also get your body to defend a higher setpoint. Hence following a plain (albeit boring) way of cooking healthy, Paleo ingredients actually is the best way to eat less and feel satisfied with the less amount. Definitely read Guyenet's food reward article series at his blog, Whole Health Source.

I know Nance, but it makes Paleohacks really unpleasant to visit. I am a frequent user of other StackExchange websites and as such I expected a similar demeanor from participants. If people want to just chat and goof around (hey, I like it too!), a forum would be much more appropriate than a Q&A website.

Ooh, OK, I was confused because it sounds like common-sense: if hungry eat more - well DUH :P But there's a big difference between eating 2 chicken legs in a little coconut milk sauce (VERY filling) to eating 2 chicken legs in and 2 pounds of vegetables. What I'm asking is *"I know I could simply eat a lot more (duh) but are ways to make chicken more filling without having to eat a greater quantity?"* I thought it's pretty obvious that I could just eat more, in which case I would not need to ask this question. (No offense meant to anyone, I'm just happy to understand how others think / read)

@Luisa, the salsa makes the chicken more filling because eat a lot more of it! Chicken is really my least favorite poultry, but slow-cook it in salsa with a few vegetables and a little starch and I go to town on it.

Yes, thanks, that's what I'm looking for, mixing chicken with beef should make it a lot more filling. One question: what is it about the salsa makes the chicken more filling? Also, you mentioning sweet potatoes made me think of something. I didn't realize it until you brought it up, but I generally make starchy veg with steak/pork, and when I cook chicken, I usually make it with lighter vegetables. Didn't think much of it, I just think it's a better (texture/taste-wise) that way. But I'll try switching that around; root vegetables with chicken, and light vegetables with beef/pork. Thaaaanks!

I have used mayo in the past, and it is super duper delicious. But, lately I take Hard Boiled eggs separate the yolk, and mix it with EVOO or bacon grease, or watever, a little water if it is too thick. Add Curry powder, garlic, onion, salt, pepper and mix it in with the shredded/chopped chicken and chopped egg whites. I am a big fan of using what I have available, so recipes are constantly changing.

Did you see my question about bacon-noodles? I asked about **bacon** and I posted clear questions regarding... *bacon*. One person said bacon would not likely work and changed the subject. One said it wouldn't work, then said *exactly* what I said on my OP on how to make it better (clearly did not read the details), then they changed the subject. SEVEN people did not even say anything at all about bacon. Only TWO people gave me a suggestion on what they think the best way to prepare the bacon would be (thank you!)

Thanks Joshua, wrapping in lettuce sounds really good. Specially with a curry egg/chicken salad that someone mentioned in another post. I'm thinking if I use mayo in the salad, it will be very filling! See the thing with chicken/beef/pork lettuce wraps, is that I can eat 1 or 2 small pork/beef wraps, and I'm stuffed! But if I'd make it with chicken, I could eat 10 and still be hungry :-/ It's really strange ^_^ But with the suggestions given, I think this will become much better soon. Can't wait to try the chicken + avocado, must be very filling too.

The problem is that when I placed my meat order last month, I accidentally ordered too much chicken and too little pork/beef. Generally I get 10 beef roasts, 10 pork roasts, and maybe 10 chicken leg quarters, but this time I got 25 chicken pieces and 2 beef and 2 pork roasts. So we're dying here... it's not that it's so tasty that we want more and more, it's that we make lots of it, and we're still hungry 1 hour later. The boyfriend & I don't have that problem when we cook beef/pork, 3 very thin slices fill us up somehow.

Can you share what kind of salad you make with chicken? Is it with mayo? Yes, I guess mayo would fill you up. What about your curry chicken/egg salad, do you spice the eggs and chicken with curry, then blend them together. Damn, that sounds good !

Luisa, what parts of the chicken do you tend to eat and are you not tending to eat the skin? (as suggested by Anja). I prefer the darker, fattier parts like the legs. I rarely eat breast and find it amost impossible to eat skinless. The fattier parts make me feel fuller for longer.

this is most definitely your answer Luisa. don't add alot of ingredients to your dishes and keep it as simply cooked as possible. don't become a fancy gourmet like many other Paleo-ers do when they no longer are satisfied with plain steak and eggs, and try to become a low-carb Gordon Ramsay.

not per-say a chicken recipe - but I take diced up avocado, red bell pepper, and cucumber and then make 3-4 slices of bacon. Crumble the bacon in to the veg mix and pour all that fat from the bacon over it. Mix well. Sometimes i melt abit of butter to add to it too. It taste great with Chicken!

Just curious if I'm supposed to eat the 2 lbs of carrots in one sitting. Actually I do this when I roast a chicken (not sure if it's 2 lbs, I think about 5 carrots, and I also place onions and sometimes potatoes), but they get so mushy because of the chicken fat? They get all greasy, so I generally trash them or save them for making bone stock. But you do realize that 2 pounds of carrots is about 15 carrots? They wouldn't even fit in the roasting pan.

I've used the bacon/bacon fat methods and I've also used salsa with it in the slow-cooker to make it more tender and satisfying. That works good as long as I have the whole bird to pick from.

In general, the only way chicken is filling for me is if I eat a few bites of skinless chicken breast--that's more than enough (I'm kidding, because I'd head straight for the fridge for some beef.)

EDIT: I'm not sure what else you're looking for with your revised title, but in addition to the bacon/salsa options already mentioned above you could include sweet potatoes or other starchy options. You could also make dishes that are half chicken, half beef.

Is that what you wanted?

Cream sauce with mushrooms on chicken is awesome, and like doubles the fat content of the dish (which can help make it more filling).

Actually the other night my husband made a crazy yogurt/garlic/tumeric marinade. It was amazing and I had 2 tiny drumsticks for breakfast and could barely eat anything else all day. I think it was a combination of the fat and the massive dose of spice (there was a LOT of garlic in it) which can make me feel fuller than I otherwise would. I probably also dumped tabasco on it (I dump tabasco on everything).

I always drain away the chicken fat from cooking and add melted butter. It improves the omega 6/3 ratio and makes the meal very filling with the added fat. Before I started this improvement, we found that the chicken wasn't filling also.

I generally eat my bacon wrapped chicken, over a bed of creamed spinach. Lately I have been eating this almost twice a week, my whole family loves it.

Otherwise, I usually eat it in/on a salad.

Or in a white chili - Also delicious.

Sometimes I dice or shred it to make a curry chicken/egg salad combo.

But, lately I take Hard Boiled eggs separate the yolk, and mix it with EVOO or bacon grease, or watever, a little water if it is too thick. Add Curry powder, garlic, onion, salt, pepper and mix it in with the shredded/chopped chicken and chopped egg whites. I am a big fan of using what I have available, so recipes are constantly changing.

Second the chicken+guac+avocado treatment.

Serve in lettuce wraps like a taco and eat until properly full.

My wife and I will eat a whole head of bib lettuce with this config, regardless if it is chicken, pork, or shredded beef.

Also, my wife makes Adobo using coconut aminos in place of soy and half the vinegar, using apple cider vinegar instead and substituting the other half with lime juice. Simmered for several hours with the bones and skin, and you have fantastic shredded chicken that is super flavorful. I ate this the other night with avocados and purple cabbage mango slaw, it was awesome.

Thanks Joshua, wrapping in lettuce sounds really good. Specially with a curry egg/chicken salad that someone mentioned in another post. I'm thinking if I use mayo in the salad, it will be very filling! See the thing with chicken/beef/pork lettuce wraps, is that I can eat 1 or 2 small pork/beef wraps, and I'm stuffed! But if I'd make it with chicken, I could eat 10 and still be hungry :-/ It's really strange ^_^ But with the suggestions given, I think this will become much better soon. Can't wait to try the chicken + avocado, must be very filling too.

not per-say a chicken recipe - but I take diced up avocado, red bell pepper, and cucumber and then make 3-4 slices of bacon. Crumble the bacon in to the veg mix and pour all that fat from the bacon over it. Mix well. Sometimes i melt abit of butter to add to it too. It taste great with Chicken!

This is my go-to chicken recipe and it is delicious and very filling. It has butter and bacon to help make it more filling and the skin is delicious as well.

you want the truth? you can't handle the truth. boil plain, unsalted chicken (esp chicken breast) and see how much you can eat and whether you're still hungry for it. the problem with chicken is its easy to flavor into any dish you want and becomes very appetizing. read Stephan Guyenet's food reward theory articles. there's nothing inherently wrong with chicken as a meat or source of protein

this is most definitely your answer Luisa. don't add alot of ingredients to your dishes and keep it as simply cooked as possible. don't become a fancy gourmet like many other Paleo-ers do when they no longer are satisfied with plain steak and eggs, and try to become a low-carb Gordon Ramsay.

The problem is that when I placed my meat order last month, I accidentally ordered too much chicken and too little pork/beef. Generally I get 10 beef roasts, 10 pork roasts, and maybe 10 chicken leg quarters, but this time I got 25 chicken pieces and 2 beef and 2 pork roasts. So we're dying here... it's not that it's so tasty that we want more and more, it's that we make lots of it, and we're still hungry 1 hour later. The boyfriend & I don't have that problem when we cook beef/pork, 3 very thin slices fill us up somehow.

no what I'm saying to you is any food, if made to be very palatable, is easy to overeat and/or will influence your body weight setpoint. In other words, eating tastier food won't just mean eating more calories but also get your body to defend a higher setpoint. Hence following a plain (albeit boring) way of cooking healthy, Paleo ingredients actually is the best way to eat less and feel satisfied with the less amount. Definitely read Guyenet's food reward article series at his blog, Whole Health Source.

in your case with chicken, you portion control and feel hungry later rather quickly. I am that way with say, Peruvian charcoaled chicken. However, if i simply grill chicken and only add some salt/pepper or even eat it plain, I can eat much less AND not feel hungry. very unintuitive but the palatability of food (esp if using artificial flavorings/additives) influences your appetite heavily, more so than low-carb

Bake a whole chicken on top of 2 lbs. carrots sliced in half. The carrots are sooooo delicious, and you can pick the chicken apart and freeze for another day :)

You do realize that 2 pounds of carrots is about 15 + carrots?

Just curious if I'm supposed to eat the 2 lbs of carrots in one sitting. Actually I do this when I roast a chicken (not sure if it's 2 lbs, I think about 5 carrots, and I also place onions and sometimes potatoes), but they get so mushy because of the chicken fat? They get all greasy, so I generally trash them or save them for making bone stock. But you do realize that 2 pounds of carrots is about 15 carrots? They wouldn't even fit in the roasting pan.

Anything that's got extra fat in it - b/c I too feel the same way about chicken. I will use bacon fat to bake/fry it in... I've served it w/a tomato/avocado "salad" (could also make a guac out of it), I'll sometimes drizzle olive oil on top (after cooking) w/some s&p & fresh herbs. sometimes I'll just have a big salad w/lots of olive oil on the side, or maybe some steamed veg w/the oil added. If you like combining meat w/other meats, that could be filling also. That's my 2cents.

Eat 1 lb of chicken with 1 lb of veggies. Add a bit of fat (10-30g) and a bit of carbs (25-100g).

If you're still hungry, then I'm out of ideas.

I usually just add copious amounts of fat in some way, but I've also had success adding spice and heat, particularly in the summer months, and just enjoying a lean meal with lots of greens and chicken breast. Chicken laab is a regular summer dish for us, and the fresh bold flavors keep me satisfied.

Coconut oil is the answer to everything.

I grill chicken, then put it on a kale salad, then I melt a fat tablespoon of coconut oil and pour it over the whole thing with a little balsamic vinegar. Not bad.

I don't actually enjoy chicken all that much, but I do like it in Thai coconut-based curries. Those are pretty filling, but probably due to the coconut milk and not the chicken itself.
