FAYE'S HUBBY'S CHICKEN AND CABBAGE EGG ROLL
Very Good 4.7/5
(6 ratings)

THIS ARE BETTER THAN THE ONES IN THE RESTAURANT. I WON'T EAT THEM, BUT THESE ARE GREAT AND THE TIGHTER YOU ROLL THEM THE LESS OIL IT HOLDS. WE ONLY LOST ABOUT 3 TABLESPOONS OF OIL. YOU CAN HAVE 2 EGG ROLLS AND IT'S ONLY " 79.8 CALORIES" EACH.

I threw this together from what I had in my pantry at the time. With proper planning, I'd use fat-free soup and sour cream. It is delicious as-is, but fat could certainly stand to be cut.

You can put the chicken into the slow cooker while still frozen, so prep time is virtually non-existent! A great choice to throw in before bed for lunch at work or in the morning for that night's dinner.

This recipe calls for two pounds of chicken, also because it was what I had available (three large breasts), but would make a great meal with just one pound, too.

I served this along with brown rice and black beans. Tasty!

Cheap and EASY to make for lunch or dinner! Serve with Fat-Free or low-fat Pringles, some cucumber slices or carrots and you have a complete meal! I used thin sliced roasted-garlic Artisian bread, but this recipe calls for doing one large sandwich on French bread loaf and then slicing into individual portions.

This tastes just like cheese pizza! Pair this with a salad and you have a great pizzeria style lunch without the calories attached--or the bill.

Spicy Oven Fried Potato Wedges
Good 3.7/5

These are similar to the ones available at some fried chicken places. They are nice and spicy, crunchy and tender all at the same time.

This is very good. Serve it sliced thinly with onions on hard rolls with melted mozzerella or provalone cheese. Serve au jus on the side for dipping. Yum!
