This is a recipe I have been making for yonks now.....I first devised it about 18 years ago, when I was following Rosemary Connely's "Hip & Thigh Diet"!! It's a very easy low fat chicken dish, which can be pan fried or baked in the oven - I prefer the latter method, it's much easier! Serve it with a medley of gently steamed vegetables, rice or pasta. (NB: PLEASE note, one of the reviewers has stated that she cooked this in a crockpot!! I would NEVER suggest cooking this recipe in a crockpot, that's why it is NOT mentioned as a cooking method ANYWHERE in the recipe - only pan-fried or oven baked. Thanks! )
From WW magazine. Eat these plain or add a sprinkling of crumbled queso fresco, freshly grated parmesan, or shredded mozzarella cheese. These can be made ahead and frozen. Look for masarepa in Latino grocery stores, it will usually be labeled as masarepa or harina de maiz precocida. You can also find it at ethnicgrocer.com
This is incredibly smooth and creamy. The secret ingredient is (believe it or not) non-dairy liquid creamer. I had a version of this at a restaurant. I asked them for the recipe, and they gave me a list of ingredients, so this is my re-creation based on those ingredients.
Never buy jar sauce again! This is easy to prepare and freezes well. Keep a pint or two in the freezer and you will be prepared. Use this sauce whenever the recipe calls for spaghetti sauce. Recipe comes from Make a Mix Cookery.
This is so tasty, and healthy too! We love black beans. Prep time does not include soaking and cooking the beans, but does include cooking the chicken. You can, of course, substitute canned beans, just drain them. The soup can also be frozen in a sturdy plastic container, or a ziploc bag. To serve, defrost and heat in microwave or on stovetop.
This soup is really delicious. I freeze this in individual portions for lunch during the week and serve with a toasted pita bread and salad. The pumpkin is what makes it so tasty I think! Prep time does not include overnight soaking of dried soup mix.
A real comfort food. Serve this with freshly boiled rice/pasta or even mashed potatoes. 3 WW points per serving. (From WW cookbook) This dish freezes really well, you can make extra for those lazy nights. Since this goulash is low in fat, there's no addition of sour cream/cream to thicken it up. If you like it very thick, simmer with some chopped potatoes for longer time or use 1 1/2 tsp cornstarch dissolved in 2 TB cold water to thicken up.
It's nice to have some refried beans you can pull out of the freezer for a side with your Mexican meals without opening a can with all the extra fat. One side serving is 1/2 cup, which also makes about 4 tacos or burritos These are a great side dish, may also be used for burritos, and can be served as a main dish with plenty of shredded cheddar and salsa on top. Take the time and make these ahead. You won't be sorry!
