Low Fat Recipes

I have got to start cooking low fat. Does anyone have a favorite recipe or two they would share with me.

This is an old WW recipe that my family LOVES!

Easy Chicken Skillet

Makes 4 servings


12 ounces boneless skinless chicken breast halves, cubed
2 medium carrots, thinly sliced
2 ribs celery, thinly sliced
1 small yellow onion, halved & thinly sliced
1 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes in juice, undrained
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon dried basil
Parmesan cheese to taste

Heat a heavy skillet over medium high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil & cook chicken until browned, stirring frequently.
Add carrots, celery & onions. Cook until vegetables are wilted. Add tomatoes and 1/2 can white wine or water. Add salt & pepper to taste. Add basil. Mix well. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium low, cover and cook 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Remove from heat and add cheese to taste.

I like to add some garlic as well. I serve this with orzo, but rice or any other pasta would do. Could also be served as is.
