Smokehouse Chicken (unchained recipe contest!)
Smokehouse Chicken (unchained recipe contest!)

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!

Cobb Salad for One- Unchained Recipe Contest
Cobb Salad for One- Unchained Recipe Contest

When I think of dinner out, I think of T.G.I. Fridays Cobb Salad. Even though it is full of healthy vegetables it is one of the most unhealthy salads on the menu becuase of it's fattening ingredients. I have created a lighter version that tastes just as great without the guilt!Submitted by: THEAQUAPANDA

Unchained Recipe Contest - Bacon Cheeseburger
Unchained Recipe Contest - Bacon Cheeseburger

My family loves going to Red Robin for burgers. I love the Bacon Cheeseburger - but I can't imagine what the calories/fat are in it. My husband and I came up with these burgers, and our son's named them the "Ultimate Goodness Burger" I can't figure out why the sodium in so high. I don't think there is that much sodium in this.Submitted by: OIL_FIELD_WIFE

Y-U-M-M-Y........one of my favorites at PF Chang's....the Soothing Chicken Lettuce Wraps!!!

Unchained Recipe Contest - Black Bean Burrito
Unchained Recipe Contest - Black Bean Burrito

I love eating at Chipotle and even if I get the burrito without the tortilla all of the extras and the serving sizes of everything packs on a lot of calories. While I love the taste of their rice it is not brown rice, which I prefer to use. I also find it much cheaper to make this at home, rather than buying it. I prefer to make my own salsa rather than buying it in a jar. But of course you can substitute if you prefer. But this one tastes great! It is always a hit at cookouts and with my family. My secret ingredients to the beans are thyme and sage. They add so much flavor. I attended a vegetarian cooking class and the instructor talked about adding those two herbs to everything to give a richer and more satisfying taste. This was the first thing that I tried them in and it is delicious. This recipe is not very difficult to make nor is it time consuming. What will take the most time is the rice, which can be made ahead. I am very much an “add a little of this and that” person, so I did find it hard to pin down measurements!

Unchained Recipe Contest Subway Philly Cheese
Unchained Recipe Contest Subway Philly Cheese

I love Subway's Veggie Delight, but sometimes I want a more meaty sandwich, sans the meat. I used to love Philly Cheese Steaks before going veg, and thought a thinly sliced portabella would substitute nicely. It did not disappoint!

Also, the nutritional information includes the marinade, most of which is drained off prior to cooking, so the sodium level is probably much lower.Submitted by: GROOVY-FLOR

Boneless Buffalo Chicken Salad Unchained Recipe Contest
Boneless Buffalo Chicken Salad Unchained Recipe Contest

I remade Chili's Boneless Buffalo Chicken Salad because I really like chicken salads and I like hot wings. This recipe cuts the original's calories by about half. Most of the savings comes in baking the chicken in panko instead of frying the chicken in a batter.

NOTE: After thinking about it and reading some comments, I changed the wing sauce amount in the nutrition calculator to be 1 serving (1 Tbsp.) instead of the 8 that I had originally to match the ingredients list (the amount of sauce used is not equal to the amount you consume). It's still higher in sodium than I'd like, but I think the recipe is a good first cut. I'll keep tinkering with it.Submitted by: JASONIOUS

Unchained Recipe Contest Chicken & Dumplings
Unchained Recipe Contest Chicken & Dumplings

This is a makeover of Cracker Barrel's Chicken & Dumplings. My aunt had created the original recipe which called for 1.75 lb chicken and whole milk. It was always one of my families favorite dinners that I made once in a while on special Sundays. Recently, I decided to try a healthier version of it with lower calories, cholesterol & sodium to see if it would pass the "family test". It did! They couldn't tell the difference. The healthy version of this recipe went down 76 calories, 31mg cholosterol & 1104 mg of sodium per serving.

On a side note, I know some people who use prepackaged biscuit dough to make their dumplings to make it easier but I don't like the taste of the perservatives because it makes the whole recipe taste like it came out of can. There is nothing like homemade!

Tempeh Mexican Pizza - (Unchained Recipe Contest)
Tempeh Mexican Pizza - (Unchained Recipe Contest)

I'm really proud of myself for this one. I used to love getting Mexican Pizzas at Taco Bell. I haven't had one in years. So, I spent a few days concocting this recipe.

Tempeh is a fermented soybean cake, originating from Indonesia. You can find it at your health food store, if you can't find it at your regular grocery store. We aren't vegetarians, but sometimes it's nice to have a vegetarian meal. Helps save on the calories. Tempeh is a great meat substitute. If you chop it up right, it can have a similar consistency to ground meat.

Also, I'm pretty sure the tortillas Taco Bell uses for this are deep fried to make them crispy. I baked mine.Submitted by: PISCESWOMAN87

Unchained Recipe Contest - Grilled bean and cheese sandwich with sweet poato chips
Unchained Recipe Contest - Grilled bean and cheese sandwich with sweet poato chips

This a remade grilled cheese and french fry meal from any typical restaurant. I love grilled cheese but it typically has no nutritional value as it's just bread and cheese! The beans in this re-made grilled cheese add fiber and protein. The brown mustard adds a glue to cheese and gives the sandwich an unexpected tang! The sweet potatoes are much better than normal white potatoes and they are roasted in the oven instead of deep fried. The nutritional information will change based on the brands you use - I am entering the brands I used obviously!

FYI - I've also made this with plain beans that I spiced up myself with a little salsa and mexican spices and then mashed. Feel free to do that if you don't have or like refried beans!Submitted by: LLBEAN75

Unchained Recipe: Chicken Carbonara
Unchained Recipe:  Chicken Carbonara

Olive Garden has a tempting Chicken and Shrimp Carbonara, but it has over 1400 calories and 3 grams of sodium. With stats like these, I could only afford a tiny taste and I want to enjoy the whole dish.

While the original dish has shrimp, I want to simplify the preparation by limiting the proteins. Ronzoni Smart Taste pasta is a good compromise between whole grain pasta and white flour pasta. The egg substitute can be replaced with egg whites you don't keep both whole eggs and egg substitute at home.Submitted by: HUSKERSALAD

Sesame Chicken - (Unchained Recipe Contest)

I love the sesame chicken you can find at any fast food Americanized Chinese restaurant. (Such as the Mr. Chau's chain in the Bay Area. Most areas have some place where you can get sesame chicken.) Sadly, it doesn't love me. So, I decided I would make a version that isn't battered and deep fried. This version is baked, so it isn't exactly like the kind from the restaurants. But, I think it's a good substitute for when you're really craving some sesame chicken!
