Papaya Chicken, Trim Healthy Mama E

Trying to find trim healthy mama e recipes that my family likes is a bit of a challenge. Most of the time they end up with crossovers. This recipes was a hit with 4 out of 5. I call that a win.

When you pick your papaya you want it more yellow than green. Here is what mine looked like when I bought mine. It could have been a little moore yellow than it was, but it was really close to perfect. You need 4 cups of chopped papaya for this recipe. You have 2 options: find a small one that will make 4 cups or buy a bigger one and use your leftovers for snacks, smoothies or even make 2 of these and freeze one.

I don’t add much salt to the recipe as written. Because of the soy sauce/Bragg’s added, you might want more to your individual bowls.

This recipe was part of my freezer recipe meal day. I didn’t include that many e meals, but I am trying to grow the list of e meals my family likes. Also, depending on the sweetness of your papaya, you might want more of the brown sugar substitute. I used 3 T and it was sweet enough for us. This is the sweetener that I used.
