Chicken Breasts with Red Wine Sauce
Very Good 4.4/5
(134 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.

Banana Chocolate Cupcakes
Good 3.9/5
(8 ratings)

This Banana Chocolate Cupcake recipe makes 24 regular-sized cupcakes which is perfect for a large gathering or birthday party. The batter is a snap to make because you just stir the wet ingredients together in one bowl and the dry ingredients together in another bowl. Mix the two and you are done. The batter is quite thin so use an ice cream scoop or small ladle to fill the muffin cups. Now while the recipe calls for cocoa powder, it doesn't specify which kind, which means you can use either regular unsweetened or Dutch-processed. As always, keep in mind that the type and brand of cocoa powder you use will determine the flavor of the cupcakes, so use the best you can afford. The other ingredient in this batter to take note of, is that the fat is in liquid form (canola or corn oil). The reason I bring this up is because oil makes for a moist and tender cupcake that stores very well, with the added advantage that they can be refrigerated and still stay soft.

You can add mushrooms, red peppers, bok choy, leeks, garlic, or whatever veggie you like. I always use different veggies, depending on what I have on hand.

Certain types of coconut milk have BPA in the cans, and because coconut milk is high acidity you should be looking for ARROY-D lite coconut milk, which uses a BPA free can.

I use canned peas and canned baby corn. Drain these and rinse with water before using, to eliminate some of the sodium.

Meatballs in a sweet and sour sauce. Best served over rice.

To make your own bread crumbs take slices of bread and zap them in the food processor. I like to save the ends from the bread that nobody tends to eat and then make them ahead of time and store them in a container in the cupboard.
