If you’re partial to Italian food, try our simple recipes for penne with preserved lemon and chicken or a quick chicken cacciatore.

Finally, we’ll show you how to throw together restaurant-quality chicken roll-ups that deliver a uniquely Southwestern flavor thanks to low-fat cream cheese, spicy picante sauce, and fresh cilantro.

We think all four of these dinners taste way better than your basic grilled chicken breast. Even better, each dish adds a hit of energizing carbs and healthy fats to your plate too.
