I LOVE chicken & dumplings so when I found this I added my own spin to it and lowered the fat and calories. This is the best chicken and dumplings I've ever had which is amazing since I'm never satisfied with my cooking! You can have a full cup of this hearty comfort food for only 284 calories and 3.8 grams of fat! The sodium could be reduced if homemade biscuits are used instead of the canned biscuits, but if sodium isn't a problem this is a very fast and easy way to make chicken & dumplings!

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.

My family loves fried chicken, so when I saw something similar done on Biggest Loser, I had to try it. It's a great alternative to "fried" chicken.

Use leftover rice or pre-cook the rice and allow to cool. I also tend to use left over pork or pre-cook the pork before making the fried rice, allowing it to cool. Cook the mixed vegetables and drain of water.

A great way to use up left-over rice sitting in the refrigerator! A few of the ingredients I've used here are not exactly 'traditional', but in the end it tastes wonderful! :) I've worded the ingredient list with generic measurements, but I also weighed my ingredients, and used those to calculate the nutritional information. I've included my gram weights in parentheses below if you find them of use! :) [Created 2007-12-20.]

Skinny Chicken Philly Cheese Sub
Very Good 4.1/5
(74 ratings)

Warm meat, gooey cheese, and grilled vegetables--what's not to love about a Philly cheese steak? How about the more than 1,600 calories in each one! This take on the classic skimps on fat but not flavor.
