Philly Chicken Cheese Steak Cups

Serve with carrots and celery with yogurt or ranch dip-

My hometown of Philadelphia is the birthplace of the Philly cheese steak- an Ambrosia roll stuffed with wafer-thin slices of roast beef, caramelized onions and green peppers, and oozing with provolone (or Cheese Whiz if you are eating at Pat’s Steak) cheese. This chicken version honors the classic, but makes it a bit healthier with chicken breast meat housed in lettuce cups. Guilt-free version when I am homesick!


Honey BBQ’d Chicken Wings

Serve with carrots and celery sticks with feta cheese dip-

I like to come up with healthier versions of fast food my family loves. I tinkered around with a baked version of wings that would be just as tasty as the fried version. It took me a few times to get the flavor and crispiness right, but this version got two thumbs up! Most of the time needed for this meal is the cook time of the wings, leaving plenty of time to prepare your crudités and even flip through a magazine.
