This is one of Hungary's well known and beloved dishes. It traditionally uses bacon drippings and whole cut-up chicken with skin. I also now use yogurt as a thickener for the sauce instead of the traditional roux. I have "lightened" it as best I can without loosing the flavour. It is usually served with dumplings called "Galuska", recipe follows, but I would recommend brown rice or whole grain pasta, rye bread and a lettuce salad (recipe also follows) . This is a dish that you can serve with pride to guests.

These come out very moist. I found this on the back of a grocery store ad and made a few changes. The original called for 2 tsp of Thyme, 1/4 c of Parmesan, & 2 c of cornflakes. I measured after I dipped and found I had a good 1/2 c of mixture left so I cut the recipe back accordingly.

* For those of you that are salt restricted- You might want to leave out the salt as there's probably enough in the Parmesan cheese. I just sprinkled a little salt over the bowl.

I also extended the cooking time. The original time was 20 mins.

There are probably numerous recipes like this, but I made this one off the top of my head. It's great cold but can also be served warm.

This chili is packed with flavor and fiber. Make a big batch for a crowd or freeze it in single-serving containers for up to four months.

Chicken Breasts with Red Wine Sauce

This is a lighter take on the classic Italian preparation of Chicken Cacciatore (or Chicken Hunter Style). Our made-over version uses white meat rather than dark and less oil to cut almost 60 calories per serving and reduce the fat and sodium of the traditional recipe.

Low-Fat Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas With Creamy Green Chile Sauce
Very Good 4.3/5
(35 ratings)

My favorite dish at a local Mexican restaurant is their Chicken Enchiladas with Creamy Green Chile Sauce. I had to try and find a way to lower the fat and sodium so I could enjoy these without the guilt! I tweaked that recipe a bit to lower the sodium and fat, and came up with a winner! My husband and teen daughter gobble these up!
