I LOVE chicken & dumplings so when I found this I added my own spin to it and lowered the fat and calories. This is the best chicken and dumplings I've ever had which is amazing since I'm never satisfied with my cooking! You can have a full cup of this hearty comfort food for only 284 calories and 3.8 grams of fat! The sodium could be reduced if homemade biscuits are used instead of the canned biscuits, but if sodium isn't a problem this is a very fast and easy way to make chicken & dumplings!

This is one of our family favorites! Although it's pretty low in calories and fat (for fettuccine alfredo), it has plenty of flavor. This looks really good, too, so we make it sometimes when company comes. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

My family loves fried chicken, so when I saw something similar done on Biggest Loser, I had to try it. It's a great alternative to "fried" chicken.

Yes - I use 3 cans 98% fat free cream of chicken, and 1 can 98% fat free broccoli cheese soups.

Note - no, I don't add water, and if you use frozen veggies the soup sticks to the sides less. Also, if you don't want it to stick to the pot, you can exchange the broccoli cheese soup for another cream of soup, the cheese is the agent that sticks to the pot.

This is a yummy mexican inspired dish, I love that the salad is served with salsa, sour cream & guacamole instead of boring old salad dressing. Nice & Low Calories for those Calorie Counters out there!

These pork chops are really tender and the liquid can make a good gravy for rice or potatoes.
