chicken parm without the harm

So my husband has always loved chicken parmesan, but I have always stayed away from making it at home because of all the calories and fat that come with it. Between having to dip the chicken in eggs, frying it, and then covering it in cheese it made for a pretty unhealthy chicken dish. However, today I made a rather healthy chicken parmesan that utilizes whole wheat flour, egg whites, and low fat mozzarella cheese (and of course no butter or oil in the whole recipe)!

Blog pics 037 As I mentioned in my previous post it can be hard to put a healthy, tasty meal on the table in a short amount of time. Well one of my favorite recipes when I am in a rush is  chicken fajitas because everything can be made in 20 minutes.  Chicken fajitas are packed with a good source of lean protein and a diverse set of vitamins from the peppers, onions and guacamole. What I love even more about these fajitas is that they satisfy my junk food craving even though I am eating something truly good for me! Chicken Fajitas (makes 6 soft tacos) 12
