Chicken Breasts with Red Wine Sauce
Very Good 4.4/5
(135 ratings)

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.

Vegan Ranch Dressing
Good 3.8/5

I love ranch dressing, but it's so heavy! Here's a lighter version that also happens to be vegan. You can substitute regular low-fat mayonnaise and skim milk for the coconut milk and vegan mayo.
