Frying in water?

Ok, well not technically frying, more boiling in a frying pan.
 
Heres the run down, been trying to loose excess fat for a few weeks now, sticking to chicken breast mostly. Its reached the point where im sick of the sight of grilled chicken breast!, really am. Anyways, put a tiny bit of oil in the frying pan to begin with, wiped most of it off, just didnt want it sticking to begin with, threw in the chicken, some water, an onion lol, some seasoning, bit of soy sauce and some cooked brown rice.
 
Im a crap cook, and it was crap, but made pleasant change.
 
Health gurus, is this acceptable?, open to any other ideas.

lose*
 
You're being extremely pedantic.  I bit of oil is not going to make a difference.  Run an extra ten mins if you're that worried.

You may be right fella, the last time tried i failed miserably, lost muscle and pals kept telling me i looked ill (which pissed me off). Eating more this time, but as you say, maybe going too far.

Monotony is generally the key to failure.... you don't need to be super creative, but you do need to avoid being obsessive to get the best out of everything. 
 
Any lean meat will do and there are plenty of lean cuts of various meats to choose from, and you do need to eat fat to burn fat. Cut it down to almost nothing and you won't get very far

I used to boil my chicken and just have it as plain as it can be.

I do a lot of push ups and sit ups. And I drink plenty of milk.

Be a bit creative with spices.  Right now I'm marinating chicken breasts which I slit with ginger garlic paste and some indian masala powder before roasting.  Need to experiment with other spices, but it really can change the taste of food.

Roasting bags are great for keeping chicken breasts moist without any fat

Just fry in a small amount of oil. So many people eat broiled and steamed everything, then have a spoonful of PB for "their fats"!?!
Hell, cook your chicken in PB if you like, I do that regularly (chicken breast, PB, sesame seeds, brocolli plus other veggies).
It's about keeping the protein high and reducing the other macros to the required levels (not eliminating them), whilst keeping your meals nutritious and tasty (so that you can stick with it).

I love 'em. Use your own spices if need be.
