I made this cake for St. Patrick's Day. It came out a little spongey but I omitted one of the egg whites. I may try this recipe again with the other egg white. I think the fat content is less if you use the cake mix without the pudding.

Great protein shake and easy to mix. For a variation, try other flavors of pudding mix or add fruit! SEVERAL different combinations for lots of variety!

Boneless Sweet BBQ Wings: SparkRecipes Un-Chained Recipe Contest Finalist
Very Good 4.0/5
(69 ratings)

I love Wendy's Honey BBQ Wings, but at 580 calories I can't even get fries or a frosty to go with them. I came up with this to satisfy my craving, and still be able to enjoy a side.

Southwestern Eggrolls: SparkRecipes Un-Chained Recipe Contest Winner
Very Good 4.4/5
(70 ratings)

I love Chili's Southwestern Eggrolls. They have so much tasty stuff in them, but I hate the fact they are deep fried. I added more beans and corn and then put them in the broiler for crunch.
These are great made ahead of time and *frozen for a quick meal or a fun snack for the big game. I make a double batch so I can freeze some for later.

Smokehouse Chicken (unchained recipe contest!)
Very Good 4.2/5
(101 ratings)

This is my absolute favorite dish from Ruby Tuesday so I had to find a way to make it over. Its called the smokehouse chicken and it is a favorite by many! This delicious dish is high in fat and calories if ordered from the restaurant so I came up with a healthier, guilt free version that has become a favorite in my household!

Soothing Asian Lettuce Wraps (Unchained Recipe Contest)
Very Good 4.3/5
(57 ratings)

Y-U-M-M-Y........one of my favorites at PF Chang's....the Soothing Chicken Lettuce Wraps!!! I've made them here with extra lean turkey, but you could easily substitute ground chicken or tofu for the turkey and add any vegetables of your choice. This recipe will leave you saying...."PF who???"

Unchained Recipe Contest Chicken & Dumplings
Very Good 4.1/5
(37 ratings)

This is a makeover of Cracker Barrel's Chicken & Dumplings. My aunt had created the original recipe which called for 1.75 lb chicken and whole milk. It was always one of my families favorite dinners that I made once in a while on special Sundays. Recently, I decided to try a healthier version of it with lower calories, cholesterol & sodium to see if it would pass the "family test". It did! They couldn't tell the difference. The healthy version of this recipe went down 76 calories, 31mg cholosterol & 1104 mg of sodium per serving.

On a side note, I know some people who use prepackaged biscuit dough to make their dumplings to make it easier but I don't like the taste of the perservatives because it makes the whole recipe taste like it came out of can. There is nothing like homemade!

Unchained Recipe Contest Subway Philly Cheese
Very Good 4.1/5
(7 ratings)

I love Subway's Veggie Delight, but sometimes I want a more meaty sandwich, sans the meat. I used to love Philly Cheese Steaks before going veg, and thought a thinly sliced portabella would substitute nicely. It did not disappoint!

Also, the nutritional information includes the marinade, most of which is drained off prior to cooking, so the sodium level is probably much lower.
