Fruity Curry Chicken Salad

Rating: 5 stars 1012
A healthy and tasty chicken salad with a fruity twist - great on a croissant or in a honey pita. Note: This salad is best if eaten the day after preparation. This allows the ingredients time to mingle, giving a fuller flavor. If desired, use nonfat mayonnaise.

Garlic Roasted Chicken and Potatoes

Rating: 4.5 stars 522
I've been making this recipe for so many years, I can't remember where I got it from. It's really quick to throw together. After fixing it several times, my husband 'discovered' that you were supposed to spread the garlic on the chicken. It's one of his favorites now. This recipe is very easy to adjust up or down. Just make sure your pan is big enough if adjusting up. I usually add more potatoes, since we like them. Serve with a mixed greens salad.
