An Italian favorite gets a below the border twist. Chef Meg made just a few tweaks before giving this one her seal of approval! She adds the spices early in cooking to help boost flavor and added a full pound of turkey for a more filling meal. Submitted by CHEF_MEG
Delicious chicken stew. Tastes just like the filling of a chicken pot pie!
I remade Chili's Boneless Buffalo Chicken Salad because I really like chicken salads and I like hot wings. This recipe cuts the original's calories by about half. Most of the savings comes in baking the chicken in panko instead of frying the chicken in a batter.
NOTE: After thinking about it and reading some comments, I changed the wing sauce amount in the nutrition calculator to be 1 serving (1 Tbsp.) instead of the 8 that I had originally to match the ingredients list (the amount of sauce used is not equal to the amount you consume). It's still higher in sodium than I'd like, but I think the recipe is a good first cut. I'll keep tinkering with it.Submitted by JASONIOUS
Using low-fat milk instead of cream lowers the saturated fat content in this hearty summer soup.
This quick Southern dish contains no added fat and very little added salt in its spicy tomato sauce.
Try using whole wheat bread for a boost in fiber. You will need to increase the stock to 1 1/4 cups.
Try a two for one: The next time you are turning on the oven to 375 degrees, roast the squash, cool it slightly, peel and package to freeze. You'll have butternut squash on hand whenever you need it, and you can have dinner on the table in no time!
