Grilled Rosemary Chicken
Looking for a barbecue dish that’s heavy on flavor but light on prep? This super simple chicken entrée requires just a few ingredients and a short cooking time.

Ingredients
Nonstick cooking spray
2 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary leaves
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 pound)

Directions
Yield: 4 servings
Serving size: 1 chicken breast (without vegetables)

1. Spray cold grid of grill with nonstick cooking spray. Prepare grill for direct cooking.

2. Whisk together rosemary, lemon juice, oil, garlic, and salt in small bowl. Pour into shallow glass dish. Add chicken, turning to coat both sides with lemon juice mixture. Cover; marinate in refrigerator 15 minutes, turning chicken once. Remove chicken; discard marinade.

3. Grill chicken over medium-hot coals 5 to 6 minutes per side, or until chicken is no longer pink in center. Serve with grilled or steamed fresh vegetables, if desired.

Cook’s note: For added flavor, moisten a few sprigs of fresh rosemary and toss on the hot coals just before grilling.

Tip: To store fresh rosemary, wrap sprigs in a barely damp paper towel and place in a sealed plastic bag. It can be kept in the refrigerator for up to five days.

Shrimp Fajita Salad
Perfect for a light summer lunch al fresco, this dish is ready in under 25 minutes!

Ingredients
Preparation time: 12 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes.

1 medium red bell pepper (2–3 inches in diameter)
1 medium green bell pepper (2–3 inches in diameter)
1 medium onion (2–3 inches in diameter)
Nonstick cooking spray
1 teaspoon canola oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 pound cooked, peeled shrimp (50 count/pound)
¼ cup prepared salsa (mild or hot)
Juice of 1 lime
4 cups sliced iceberg lettuce
¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
16 baked bite-size tortilla chips (use gluten-free corn chips for a gluten-free dish)
1 tablespoon hot salsa (optional)

Directions
Yield: 4 servings
Serving size: 1 cup lettuce, 1 cup shrimp mixture

1 – Remove stems, seeds, and cores of the red and green peppers. Cut each into long thin strips. Peel onion, remove ends, and cut in half. Quarter onion and slice into thin pieces, separating them. Spray a large skillet with a thick layer of nonstick cooking spray, and heat over medium-high heat. Add canola oil and garlic. Sauté quickly, then add peppers and onions, stirring frequently. Once the peppers are beginning to soften, add shrimp, salsa, and lime juice. Stir rapidly to heat ingredients evenly, about a minute. Remove mixture from heat. Spread 1 cup sliced lettuce on each of four shallow salad bowls or plates. Place ¼ of the shrimp mixture on each of the lettuce beds. Distribute cilantro equally on tops of each salad. Crush the tortilla chips in a small plastic bag with your hands to make irregularly sized crumbs. Sprinkle chip crumbs on top of each salad. Garnish each serving with a dab of hot salsa, if desired, and serve.

Pork With Cucumber Pico De Gallo
Nothing says Mexican food quite like authentic pico de gallo! This easy-to-make fresh salsa is a perfect complement to pork cutlets in this low-carb homemade meal.

Ingredients
1/2 of a medium unpeeled cucumber, seeded* and finely chopped (4 ounces total)
2 medium tomatillos, papery skin removed, rinsed and chopped
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro leaves
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1-2 tablespoons lime juice
1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
4 boneless center cut pork cutlets, trimmed of fat (about 1 pound)
Nonstick cooking spray

Directions
Yield: 4 servings
Serving size: 3 ounces pork and 1/4 cup cucumber mixture per serving

1. Combine cucumber, tomatillos, cilantro, red pepper flakes, lime juice, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a mixing bowl. Toss gently to blend. Set aside.

2. Coat pork chops evenly with the black pepper and remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt.

3. Place a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium high heat until hot. Coat skillet with cooking spray. Add pork and immediately reduce heat to medium. Cook 5 minutes. Turn and cook 4 to 5 minutes longer, or until barely pink in center.

4. Serve with cucumber mixture.

*Note: To seed a cucumber easily, split cucumber in half lengthwise. Run the tip of a teaspoon down the center to remove seeds. This prevents the dish from being too watery and diluting the flavors.
