This is a tasty and satisfying one dish meal that's high in flavor and low in fat and calories! Based on a recipe from a Healthy Cooking book that says it has just 229 calories per serving, 15 g of protein and 7 g fat! We like it with a salad and a nice dinner roll.

This was a really great, fast dish to make. A reviewer suggested that it might be better with chicken, so I did use chicken, and it was delicious. I served it with a salad and it made a complete meal, low-calorie, low fat and delicious.

This dish was a test for something different. My husband is not crazy about ham, but I like it. I followed all the ingredients except I cut out the poultry seasoning. I just added a little ground black pepper. It was very easy, but a little bland so I spiced it up with a side of jalepeno corn bread. My husband liked it ! I will be making this again. Thanks for the great recipe!
