Hungry Girl Today: 06.13.08
Today is Friday the 13th AND Kitchen Klutzes of America Day. This is no time
to take risks, people. Whip up our super-easy, 3-ingredient recipes! They're
foolproof and, um, REALLY good...
PER SERVING (1/4th of recipe): 98 calories, 0g fat, 20mg sodium, 26g carbs,
5g fiber, 17g sugars, 0.5g protein -- POINTS® value 1*
Pssst... This one's even better the next day! It's also AMAZING served with
light vanilla ice cream or fat-free yogurt!
4 medium pears, sliced
12 oz. Diet Ocean Spray Cranberry Spray
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lay pear slices flat in a large baking dish
sprayed lightly with nonstick spray. Sprinkle with cinnamon, and then pour
cranberry drink over the pears. Pop the pan in the oven and let cook for 45
minutes (or until pears are soft). Remove pan from the oven, and let pears
sit in the "juice" for at least a half-hour. Enjoy hot, cold, or anywhere in

EZ Tomato Basil Chicken
PER SERVING (1/4th of recipe): 175 calories, 1.5g fat, 251mg sodium, 11g
carbs, 2g fiber, 6g sugars, 28g protein -- POINTS® value 3*
Toss leftovers on top of lettuce for a saucy, second-day salad that's ready in
1 lb. raw boneless skinless lean chicken breast tenders
Half a 28-oz. can (about 1 1/2 cups) crushed tomatoes with basil
1 1/2 cups thinly sliced onions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. While you wait for the oven to preheat, cook
onions over high heat in a pan sprayed with nonstick spray, just until they
begin to brown (about 3 minutes). Pour half of the tomatoes (1/4th of the
can) into a medium baking pan. Lay chicken in the pan, and then top with
onions. Pour the rest of the tomatoes (another quarter of the can) evenly
over the chicken and onions. Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes (until
chicken is cooked through). Allow chicken to cool and sauce to thicken
slightly before serving. Tada!

Peaches 'n Cream Microwave Cupcake
PER SERVING (entire recipe): 120 calories, 2g fat, 190mg sodium, 25g carbs,
1g fiber, 10g sugars, 1g protein -- POINTS® value 2*
Yup... we found yet another brilliant use for baby food!
2 1/2 tbsp. Pillsbury Moist Supreme Reduced Sugar Cake Mix, Classic Yellow
4 tsp. Gerber Peaches (or another brand of pureed peaches, found in the
baby food aisle)
2 tbsp. Fat Free Reddi-wip
In a small microwave-safe dish (like a ramekin or custard dish), combine
cake mix and peaches. Gently stir until completely blended. (Don't worry if it
seems like a small amount. Your cake will puff up -- we promise!) Microwave
for 1 minute, and then let sit in the microwave to set for a full 5 minutes.
Once cool enough to handle, run a knife along the sides of the dish to release
the cake and pop it onto a plate (or you could just leave it in the dish to be
consumed!). Then top your cupcake off with the Reddi-wip, and enjoy!
