Did you get my Bow Chicka Wow Wow reference in the title? Just me? Okay then, moving on.
Tonight we had a yummy and skinnified version of an all-time comfort food: Chicken Parm. Here were a few short cuts to save on calories:
- Used just a little bit of shredded low fat cheese (mix of provolone and mozzarella) instead of 5lbs of heavy cheese on top of the chicken
- Used Orzo pasta instead of spaghetti (I don’t know – maybe we ate less pasta this way?)
- Cooked in a pan instead of frying, then threw it in the oven to melt the cheese
It took about 30 minutes to make, which for a weeknight isn’t too bad. I got the recipe here and we’ll definitely make it again. And now, for you visual people out there:
