Chicken is a protein staple for many of us trying to lose weight or live a healthier lifestyle. I would bet serious money that the vast majority of us have groaned over the idea of yet another piece of grilled chicken. This is why I love Hunter's Chicken, cacciatore
in Italian. At its most basic, Hunter's Chicken is chicken braised in wine and vegetables with tomatoes, onions, peppers and mushrooms being the most common ingredients. But, you can feel free to vary these to your own taste.
This version and uses thinly sliced red peppers along with, onions, mushrooms, and red wine. It created a delicious sweet and earthy flavor, with just a touch of heat from the garlic and red pepper flakes. What I love is that you get all those flavors and a
filling dish for only 271calories with 6 grams of fat, 34grams of protein, 16 grams of carbohydrate and 4 grams of fiber. This is absolutely a dish you can eat without guilt.
Along the lines of guilt-free food, Progresso asked me to try two of their new soups and have offered a nice giveaway to go along with it. I must admit that Nancy, Quinn and I are fans of Progresso. Their light soups are a constant in our pantry because they
are flavorful without being loaded with fat. Their new "Heart Healthy" Low Sodium soups don't disappoint. If sodium is a concern, they are absolutely worth giving a try.
If you'd like to try these for free and get a cool soup cup and an Everlast exercise ball with a DVD, leave a comment on my
