Very Good 4.6/5
(73 ratings)

This is a recipe that I have been experimenting with and tweaking for years. Always a family favorite and they didn't even notice the difference when I re-invented it using low fat ingredients and turkey instead of beef.

The best thing about this meal is how much fun you can have making it. Since it is more of a "stew" I have added all kinds of different vegetables and sometimes even put left over pot roast in with it. Have fun and be creative!

Halloween - Autumn Variation: Make this recipe just as described below but remove the potatoes and add one can (15oz) of pumpkin puree and 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice! 1 tsp of ground cumin is always nice also..

White Chicken Chili
Very Good 4.5/5

This chili is packed with flavor and fiber. Make a big batch for a crowd or freeze it in single-serving containers for up to four months.

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.

Tex Mex Calzones
Very Good 4.3/5
(280 ratings)

An Italian favorite gets a below the border twist. Chef Meg made just a few tweaks before giving this one her seal of approval! She adds the spices early in cooking to help boost flavor and added a full pound of turkey for a more filling meal.

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.
