Gluten Free Chicken and Snow Peas

Last Updated on

I purchased some snow peas at the market today because I was craving stir fry. Snow peas are very nutritious. Check out their nutritional facts. I searched and searched online for a chicken and snow peas recipes, but every recipe I came across called for ingredients that I did not have on hand. I had no rice vinegar, no fresh ginger, no apricot preserves, no cashews, no water chestnuts, no bamboo shoots, no peanut oil, no sesame oil, no almond flavored liqueur and no mushrooms. I got creative instead! My husband and I really enjoyed this dish. I use chicken breasts instead of whole chicken parts for lower fat content. This recipe has a slight hint of peanut, sweetness and tang, just in the right proportions. Some stir fry recipes just do not have enough sauce, in my opinion. To me, there is nothing worse than have a bunch of dry rice left to eat. I believe this one has the perfect amount of sauce. Try it and let me know what you think!

Low Fat Healthy Baked French Fries

Low Fat Baked French Fries

Last Updated on

Let’s face it french fries that have been deep fried are high in calories. If you’d like a french fry lower in fat and calories just bake them. I’m all for low fat french fries! I recently purchased a Nonstick French Fry Baking Pan which allows the heat to rise form the bottom through holes in the pan, allowing browning to occur on both sides. A little olive oil spray makes them taste like regular french fries. UPDATE: I have successfully made these using a regular baking sheet. You may use russet potatoes, sweet potatoes, or golden or red potatoes. Guilt free French fries! What’s not to enjoy? Continue reading “Low Fat Healthy Baked French Fries”
