You can eat pasta and still lose weight with these healthy pasta recipes.
Pasta is a favorite comfort food—it’s quick, easy to cook and always tastes good. But with all those carbs can it be healthy too? You bet! The trick is to keep portion sizes under control and add more lean protein and vegetables so you feel satisfied. And skip the “regular” white pasta, which is made from refined grains. Instead opt for whole-wheat pasta, which has more fiber—shown to help you lose weight. Say “yes” to pasta once again with these delicious low-calorie pasta recipes.

When defrosting chicken…
* Defrost frozen chicken by soaking in cold water that has been heavily salted. The meat will be pure white and very tasty.
* The most common thawing technique, and one of the safest, is to take your frozen food out of the freezer and put it in the refrigerator. This takes longer than any other process, but you are assured that since it is confined to the cold environment of your fridge, it won’t develop bacteria.
* If you thawed the chicken in the refrigerator, you don’t have to cook it right away. Poultry that’s been defrosted in the fridge can be safely kept for an additional one to two days in the refrigerator before cooking, says the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Today’s Menu: Chicken Enchiladas
Busy day today. Had a real light Breakfast and on to the morning workout. Then out the door before 7:00. First stopped at Walmart for a few items and then on to Meijer to finish up shopping. Back home put everything away, broke some of the Meat packages to freeze. Cleaned up around the house and Dad had home therapy today and a nurse stopping over later in the day. Went and got Mom’s car washed for her and back home for the day. Managed to get the cart out for a while also to enjoy a beautiful day. No humidity, sunny, and a high in the 70’s! Humidity coming back in with hotter weather tomorrow though. For dinner tonight I prepared a real family favorite tonight, Chicken Enchiladas.
I had come across this recipe idea in an issue of Food Network Magazine, courtesy of Ree Drummond. We’ve had this twice now and it’s quickly became a family favorite! My recipe varies slightly from her original recipe, I didn’t top mine with diced Tomatoes before serving but I did top Mom and Dad’s. To make the Enchiladas I’ll need the following; 3 Mission Flour Tortillas, 2 tablespoon Roasted Ground Cumin, 2 tablespoon Chili Powder (plus more for sprinkling), 2 tablespoons Cajun Spice, 1 teaspoon Sea Salt, 1 teaspoon freshly Ground Black Pepper, 2 boneless, skinless Chicken Breasts, 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1/2 medium Red Onion (diced), Three 15-ounce cans Red Enchilada Sauce (or use Green if preferred!), 3 cups of Kraft Shredded Cheddar-Jack Cheese (plus more if needed), Daisy Reduced Fat Sour cream (for serving), and Chopped fresh Cilantro, for serving. I used Simple Life Chicken Breasts.
Then to prepare them I preheated the oven to 350 degrees F. Then one at a time, held the Tortillas over the stove top burner (heated to medium heat) to brown slightly, about 20 seconds per side. Set the warmed Tortillas aside. In a bowl, mix together the Cumin, Chili Powder, Cajun Spice, salt and pepper. Sprinkled both sides of the Chicken Breasts with the Spice Mix. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat and cook the Chicken on both sides until done in the middle and the juices run clear, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Set aside on a plate to cool, then shred finely with a fork. Threw the Onions into the same skillet, stir them around and cook until deep golden brown and caramelized, 4 to 5 minutes; set them aside on a plate. Pour the Enchilada Sauce into the skillet and reduce the heat to low, allowing it to warm through.
To make the enchiladas: Pour 2 cups of the Sauce into a 9-by-13-inch Casserole Dish and leave the rest in the skillet. Dip a Tortilla into the Sauce in the skillet, then lay it on a baking sheet or plate. Sprinkle some Cheese down the middle, followed by some Chicken and finally, some of the Caramelized Onions. Roll it up tightly, then place it seam-side down in the Casserole Dish. Repeat with the rest of the Tortillas. Pour the rest of the Sauce over the Enchiladas, then sprinkle on the rest of the Cheese. Give it a final sprinkling of Chili Powder. Bake until hot and bubbly, 30 minutes. Let it sit for 15 to 20 minutes before serving.
Serve the enchiladas topped with a dollop of sour cream, a sprinkling of cilantro and a wedge of lime. And time to enjoy these babies! Hot, Cheesy, Flavorful, with nice Heat, not to over use the saying but it’s a “Winner, Winner Chicken Dinner!” Another Keeper Recipe courtesy of Ree Drummond. The original recipe along with the web link is at the end of the post. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Greek Frozen Yogurt.
10 to 12 corn tortillas
2 tablespoons cumin
2 tablespoons chili powder, plus more for sprinkling
2 tablespoons Cajun spice
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 large onion, diced
Three 15-ounce cans green enchilada sauce (or use red if preferred!)
3 cups grated Cheddar-Jack cheese, plus more if needed
Sour cream, for serving
Diced tomatoes, for serving
Chopped fresh cilantro, for serving
Lime wedges, for serving
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
One at a time, hold the tortillas over the stove top burner (heated to medium heat) to brown slightly, about 30 seconds per side. Set the warmed tortillas aside.
In a bowl, mix together the cumin, chili powder, Cajun spice, salt and pepper. Sprinkle both sides of the chicken breasts with the spice mix.
Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat and cook the chicken on both sides until done in the middle and the juices run clear, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Set aside on a plate to cool, then shred finely with a fork.
Throw the onions into the same skillet, stir them around and cook until deep golden brown and caramelized, 4 to 5 minutes; set them aside on a plate. Pour the enchilada sauce into the skillet and reduce the heat to low, allowing it to warm through.
To assemble the enchiladas: Pour 2 cups of the sauce into a 9-by-13-inch casserole dish and leave the rest in the skillet. Dip a tortilla into the sauce in the skillet, then lay it on a baking sheet or plate. Sprinkle some cheese down the middle, followed by some chicken and finally, some of the caramelized onions. Roll it up tightly, then place it seam-side down in the casserole dish. Repeat with the rest of the tortillas. Pour the rest of the sauce over the enchiladas, then sprinkle on the rest of the cheese. Give it a final sprinkling of chili powder.
Bake until hot and bubbly, 30 minutes. Let it sit for 15 to 20 minutes before serving.
Serve the enchiladas topped with a dollop of sour cream, a sprinkle of diced tomatoes, a sprinkling of cilantro and a wedge of lime.
