Easy Chicken Recipe for Dieters

Make chicken sassy by brushing with the following paste:

1 teaspoon of peanut oil

1 onion chopped up fine - very fine

1 teaspoon of finely chopped garlic

1/4 cup of chopped parsley

Louisiana hot sauce - add as much or as little as you like!

1/2 cup of red wine vinegar

1 Tablespoon of brown sugar (light or dark)

1 teaspoon of yellow mustard

How to Prepare This Diet Recipe

Place peanut oil in warm pan. Add onion, garlic and parsley and cook until translucent (a fancy word that just means 'diaphanous') ('until you can see through it').

Next, add red wine vinegar, Louisiana hot sauce, brown sugar and the mustard.  Cook until sauce is thick then brush on chicken. Grill or roast until the chicken glaze reaches a candied stage.

Quick Confetti Couscous Diet Recipe

Prepare 1 box of couscous according to package directions.  Add 1 teaspoon of olive oil to a non stick pan and saute 1/2 cup of sliced mushrooms, fresh chopped parsley, and 1/2 cup of RED bell pepper.  The bright red pepper will add a fun color to the dish.

Take Quick Confetti Couscous to a higher stage by adding red, yellow and green sauteed bell peppers.
