Find healthy, delicious fried chicken recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Creamy Lemon Chicken Parmesan
This riff on classic chicken Parmesan replaces the usual marinara with a luscious lemony cream sauce. We’ve lightened it up by using half-and-half instead of cream, with just-as-delicious results. Serve this lemony chicken dinner with whole-wheat pasta or brown rice………………

Chicken-Fried Turkey Cutlets with Redeye Gravy
Redeye gravy is a Southerner’s trick of using coffee to make a quick pan gravy from the drippings that remain in the pan after frying ham steaks. In this lightened version we use lean turkey breast cutlets breaded and “fried” in a little canola oil, with just a bit of bacon for flavor in the gravy. Recipe by Joyce Hendley for EatingWell……………………..

Fried Chicken Salad with Buttermilk Dressing
A blend of whole-wheat panko and fine cornmeal gives this healthy chicken recipe the perfect amount of crunch even though it’s not deep fried. Making an easy homemade buttermilk ranch dressing recipe means you can skip bottled, which may have additives and stabilizers……………..

When making homemade soup double your recipe…………………..

Soups are easy to make in large batches, and are one of the most freezer-friendly dishes you can prepare. So, double up on ingredients, grab a larger pot and make several meals instead of one. Freeze soups after they have been chilled overnight in the fridge. Soups will last up to two months in the freezer.

Today’s Menu: Turkey Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

To start this day off I prepared a Breakfast Sandwich. Made it using an al fresco Chicken Sausage Patty, a 1/2 slice of Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and served on a toasted Thomas English Muffin. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Rain showers in the morning and a cloudy afternoon, had a high of 45 degrees. Not real active today, the weather is really messing with my sinuses. So spent the day resting and relaxing. For Dinner tonight its a Turkey Cheese Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

I bought a package of the Jennie – O Lean Turkey Burger Patties – 93% Lean. To prepare the Burger I grabbed a skillet sprayed it the Pam and added 2 teaspoons of Extra Light Olive Oil, heated it on medium heat. When ready I added the Turkey Burger and cooked it for 16 minutes flipping it several times. With a minute of cooking time left I added a slice of Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese. And done! Served the Burger on a Healthy Life Whole Grain Bun.

 

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries, served these with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Meatball Pasta Bake w/ Baked Garlic Oval Loaf Bread

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, 3 slices of Glier’s Turkey Goetta, fried 1 medium Egg Sunny Side Up, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Finally found the Glier’s Turkey Goetta on my last visit to Jungle Jim’s International Market. I love Goetta! Cloudy with rain showers late in the afternoon, high of 44 degrees. Went to Kroger for Mom after Breakfast. When I got to Kroger it was busy but the time I left it was packed. I’ll be glad when the Holidays are over and stores get back to normal. Gave Mom a hand in making Chocolate Fudge, Buckeyes, and Chex Mix. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Meatball Pasta Bake and Baked Garlic Loaf Bread.

 

To make this recipe I’ll be needing: Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Penne Rigate Pasta, LaRosa’s Sauce, Meijer Turkey Meatballs, LiteHouse Dried Oregano, Morton’s Lite Salt, Sargento Off the Block Mozzarella Cheese, Extra Light Olive Oil, and Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese.

 

 

 

 

I first turned the oven on to 425 degrees. To prepare it was easy! I used the Leftover Meijer Turkey Meatballs in the LaRosa’s Sauce. I put those in a sauce pan and reheated them on medium low, stirring often.

 

 

 

 

As the Meatballs and Sauce was heating I made my Pasta. I grabbed a large sauce pan and filled it 3/4 full of water, added the Salt to the water. Brought the water to a rapid boil. Added the Pasta and stirred; return to rapid boil. Cook uncovered for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. I removed the Pasta just before it was done. It will finish in the oven without getting over cooked. Drain well.

 

 

 

 

I added the Pasta to casserole glass dish. Season again with the Salt and added the Oregano and a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Stirred until well mixed. Next I added Meatballs and Sauce and stirred until the Pasta was well coated with the Sauce and the Meatballs mixed in.

 

 

 

 

 

Topped everything with the Mozzarella Cheese and Oregano. Popped it in the preheated oven. and baked for about 20 minutes. I really wanted all those flavors to marry together. Before removing from the oven I switched it on to the broiler and left it in the oven another 3 minutes to get the Cheese a little brown on top. Done and ready to serve!

 

 

 

 

Served it in a bowl, I topped it with a sprinkle of the Grated Parmesan Cheese. One delicious dish! By making extra Meatballs in Sauce I got 2 delicious meals out of it. I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread with any Dish, especially Pasta Dishes! This made one excellent Dish. The Penne Rigate Pasta along with Turkey Meatballs, Sauce, and the Mozzarella Cheese all come together to make this dish so delicious! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s of Hanover Stick Pretzels with a Diet Mango/Tea Snapple.

Health benefits of eating turkey include………..

 

Turkey is a very rich source of protein, niacin, vitamin B6 and the amino acid tryptothan. Apart from these nutrients, it is also contains zinc and vitamin B12. The skinless white meat of turkey is low on fat and is an excellent source of high protein. Turkey also contains anti-cancer properties. It is a very good source of the trace mineral selenium, which is an essential component required for thyroid hormone metabolism, antioxidant defense systems, and immune function. Scientific studies have suggested that selenium intake can bring down cancer incidence.

Today’s Menu: Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Sunny and 42 degrees outside today. I had to go to Meijer to pick up a few things for Mom and myself and picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s. Back home got the cart out of the shed and raked the back yard. We have a Mole problem in the backyards of most of the homes on our side of street. I ordered some Mole Stop off Amazon, see if that works! For Dinner tonight I prepared Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Texas Toast.

 

 

 

It’s Spaghetti and Meatballs tonight! And you can always make it healthier by using Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs. For the Meatballs I’m using Meijer Turkey Meatballs. These Meatballs are 150 calories and 5 carbs per serving (6 Meatballs). For the Spaghetti I’ll be using Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Spaghetti.

 

 

 

 

I’ll be cooking the Meatballs in LaRosa’s Original Pasta Sauce, one of my favorites! The Sauce goes great on Pasta, Pizza, or as a Dipping sauce. I grabbed a small Sauce Pan, sprayed it Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, added the sauce to it, and heated on medium low heat. As the sauce started to heat up I added the Turkey Meatballs, stirred until covered with the Sauce. Cooked them for 7 minutes and then reduced the heat to low until I was ready to use them.

 

 

 

 

As I said I’m using Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Spaghetti. It’s my favorite and I use all the Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Pastas. The Spaghetti is 180 calories and 35 net carbs, which isn’t bad for Pasta. To prepare the Spaghetti; I cooked the Spaghetti as to the package instructions. I used a large Sauce Pan and filled it 1/2 way up with water. Turned the burner on high and brought the water to a rapid boil. Added the Spaghetti and stirred, returning it to the rapid boil. Cooked it uncovered, stirring it occasionally. Cooked it for a total of 8 minutes and done! Love this Pasta so tender and tasty. As the Spaghetti was cooking I baked the New York Bakery Light Texas Toast. For Dessert tonight a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.
