Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

To lower the fat content even more, use reduced fat cheddar cheese.

I use Nueva Concina Taco Seasoning - it's more authentic and less salty.

Chicken Mozzarella Al' dente
(no ratings)

My family loves chicken Parmesan but we don't like substituting fat for flavor.

This is a quick recipe full of flavor, healthy for you and easy on the waste line.

You can substitute the Arrabbiata sauce for homemade or another jar. But I always use the all natural pasta sauces at the store. They're more expensive but they are lower in calorie, have no added sugar or chemicals and are the closest thing to homemade.

Francis Coppolo sauce is only 65 calories for a 1/2 C.

Another variation is to toss pasta with 3 Tbs olive oil, garlic and basil.

Low sodium and fat, and pretty good on the potassium too.
We strain out the onions and garlic and serve them with it.
