Low Calorie Recipe Ingredients for Lemon Peppered Chicken

2 small chicken breasts with skin and visible fat removed
1 Tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Lemon Pepper (found in the spice section at your local market)

Cracked Black Pepper

How to Prepare Lemon Peppered Chicken

I like to pound my breasts (chicken breasts that is) flat as they cook faster and tend to be more tender. However - this is totally optional.

Next, place the oil in a non stick pan on the stove top and allow the olive oil to heat - but not to a sizzling stage or you risk painful splatters.

Add chicken breasts and allow to brown on one side. As the chicken browns, go ahead and sprinkle on a bit of lemon pepper as well as the cracked black pepper.

Next, turn the chicken, sprinkle on more pepper and cook until chicken is thoroughly done. I tend to turn my chicken over a few times just to ensure that it's totally done.

Serve on a bed of wild rice, white rice, brown rice, or egg noodles. Add a bit of color with freshly cooked veggies such as carrots, broccoli, or a salad mix of tomatoes and lettuce.

Total calories for lemon peppered chicken: This recipe serves 2 generously for about 250 calories each.

Low Calorie Dessert Recipe: Honey, Banana, English Walnuts

Honey is a natural sweetener and holds impressive health benefits; the local varieties can even assist in stymieing the side effects of allergies.

It also goes very well with bananas and many types of nuts and seeds. For this recipe, we'll make use of the English walnut but you can use any of your favorite nuts or seeds instead.

The Short List of Recipe Ingredients

1 ripened banana, sliced
1 teaspoon of chopped English walnuts
1/2 teaspoon of imitation rum extract
1 Tablespoon of local honey

How to Prepare This Diet Recipe

Get out your non-stick skillet; you can treat with cooking spray if you are concerned about sticking issues.

Add the banana that has been sliced to the warm pan along with the honey. Allow to heat until the honey bubbles then remove from the heat.

Ad the nuts or seeds along with the splash of imitation rum extract. Transfer the banana and honey nut mixture to a clear bowl or dessert dish. Top with low fat whipped topping if desired and drizzle a small wand of honey over the top.

This makes a beautiful dessert for under 200 calories and it contains quite a few health benefits.
