Thread Starter 
We are having a PotLuck on Friday at work. Since I am on a diet I wanted to bring something in that is healthy but easy too make. I would really like too use chicken some how. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I do, its from a Fit4 cookbook. But I'll have to wait till I get home to post the recipe for you - it tastes like fried chicken, but its baked - much more healthy for you

I'm looking at Cooking Light recipes right now. So far I have found:
Jamaican chicken with mango salsa
Carmelized Onion Chicken
Turkey Lasagna (It's not chicken but its low calorie!)

For every recipe that Cooking Light has, the calories and other nutrition facts are listed towards the bottom of the page. Here's the link if you want to browse through them. Some of them look pretty good!

Sorry if I'm not much help!
