Taste is everything

When it comes to eating healthy taste is everything. At least it is to me. If I need to give up some of my favorite foods (donuts, ice cream) I must have flavor in the foods I am eating.

There are ways of adding flavor to help make you feel that you are not doing without. Spices, herbs and condiments play a big part in my recipes. I couldn't do without them. In this small collection of recipes I have concentrated on chick and casseroles. These are great one dish meals. Either of these recipes are equally tasty made with chicken or turkey.

Try these recipes, you will be amazed at how good they are.

Chicken Barbeque Casserole

Ingredients:

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (approximately 3 1/2 to 4 pounds)

1/2 cup flour

2 tsp salt substitute

pepper, to taste

1 tsp garlic powder

oil spray

1 med. onion, chopped

1/2 cup green pepper, chopped

1 cup mushrooms, sliced

1 tbsp olive oil

1 small can tomato paste

1 cup water

2 tbsp Worchestershire sauce

2 tbsp brown sugar substitute

1tsp cilantro

1 clove garlic, minced

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray oil into a 9x13x2inch baking dish. Salt, pepper and garlic chicken and coat with flour. Bake covered in for 20 minutes.

While chicken is baking heat oil in medium fry pan. Saute green peppers and onions until onion becomes translucent. Add mushrooms, celery, tomato paste, water, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar substitute, garlic and cilantro. Mix well

Remove chicken from oven. Pour mixture over chicken to marinate all day or over night in refrigerator.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake chicken for about 45 minutes or until chicken is tender.

Leftover turkey can also be used in this recipe. Instead of baking for 20 minutes as you do with the raw chicken you simply place the turkey in baking dish and cover with vegetable mixture and marinate. The rest of the instructions are unchanged. This is a great recipe to prepare the night before. When you come home from a long day at work all you have to do is pop this dish in the oven and let it cook itself. This dish is great with brown rice or whole wheat noodles.
