From TV snack to tasty meal

 

My family loves to snack on buffalo chicken wings and blue cheese-filled celery when watching sports on TV. Tonight’s dinner is a quick and tasty variation on that theme. A tangy blue cheese sauce coats chicken tenders while the brown rice is flavored with bottled wing sauce and crunchy celery.

Chicken tenders, also called boneless chicken tenderloins, are part of the chicken breast and can be found in most supermarkets. Alternatively, cut boneless, skinless chicken breast meat into strips about 2 inches wide and 4 inches long.

The side dish is made with microwaveable brown rice. If using another kind, follow package instructions and add the celery, oil and wing sauce after the rice is drained. Diced celery for the rice dish can be found in the produce section of the market.

Cheeseburger ‘sandwiches’ are toasted a golden brown

”I just love the combination of the flavors of the burger, raw onion, cheese, and especially the grilled toast,” Katie Lee Joel says of her grandmother’s Logan County hamburgers.

The TV personality, who is in Miami for the South Beach Wine & Food Festival, filled her cookbook, The Comfort Table, with family-pleasing dishes. I’ve adapted her recipe for an easy dinner.

Open a bag of washed, ready-to-eat salad and toss it with reduced-fat vinaigrette dressing to complete this meal, which contains 431 calories per serving with 37 percent of calories from fat.

Syrup sweetens chicken breast

 

Dinner in five minutes? Yes. Doctor rotisserie chicken breasts with a maple syrup glaze and add broken pecans for extra flavor and crunch. Maple syrup gives a sweet glaze over the cooked chicken breasts, which take only three minutes to warm through.

Hot Pepper Succotash is a quick, spicy version of this American staple. Succotash is a dish Native Americans made from the corn and beans they grew side by side in their fields, calling it by their word for “hodgepodge.”

This meal contains 617 calories per serving with 25 percent of calories from fat.
