This quick and easy meal is a hit with kids. If they can't tolerate spicy foods, reduce or omit the sriracha.

Quick and Easy Creamy Mushroom Chicken
Very Good 4.4/5
(69 ratings)

I created this dish for dinner one day when I was pressed for time with ingredients I had on hand and it was an instant hit! A low carb delight as is, but you can serve over wide whole wheat noodles or brown rice if you are not watching carbs.

Turkey Meatloaf
Very Good 4.8/5
(27 ratings)

This is a fast, easy, and flavorful rendition of a favored food - meat loaf. You buy cheap and common ingredients to prepare a healthy main dish. I generally serve this with a side of steamed broccoli, green beans or mixed veggies.

With 2g of fat and 28g of protein, you can't go wrong!

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!

Spicy CrockPot Thai Chicken
Very Good 4.7/5
(19 ratings)

This is one of my family's very favorite dinners. One of the best things about this recipe is how easy it is to adjust to your own tastes. I entered it in with my true ingredients, which are SPICY! If you don't like it super spicy, adjust your ratio of Sweet Thai chili sauce (found in the grocery store asian food section) and the spicy Sambal Oelek (found in the same section). Try 1/4 cup of sambal oelek and 3/4 cup sweet chili sauce. Also very good with skinless chicken thighs, trimmed. I just ordered PB2 and am looking forward to trying it with this recipe, to cut the fat back even further!
