Who says buffalo chicken can't be healthy? Broiled chicken paired with a buffalo sauce made with Greek yogurt lightens up and adds extra protein to this American classic. Serve over this crisp, crunchy salad for a quick and healthy meal.
1 head romaine lettuce, thick spines removed, chopped
1 head red leaf lettuce, thick spines removed, chopped
1 yellow bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
1 cup peeled and shredded carrots
2 oz blue cheese, crumbled (about ½ cup)
Preheat broiler to high. Place chicken on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Lightly mist chicken with cooking spray and sprinkle evenly on both sides with paprika, chile powder and salt. Broil 6 to 8 inches from heat until center of chicken is no longer pink, about 6 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a cutting board and let rest for 3 to 5 minutes before cutting into bite-size chunks.
In a blender, purée onion, yogurt, buttermilk and hot sauce. Divide romaine and red leaf lettuces among 4 plates and top with bell pepper, tomatoes, carrots and chicken, dividing each evenly. Serve yogurt mixture on the side or drizzle evenly over each plate. Sprinkle with blue cheese.
Serving Size: 2 1/2 cups vegetables, 2/3 cup chicken, 1/4 cup dressing and 2 tbsp blue cheese
Tantalize your taste buds with paprika-infused chicken paired with comforting and creamy polenta. Polenta also helps protect your vision: it is rich in carotenoids, plant pigments that help with healthy cell growth. When converted to vitamin A, carotenoids can also help support proper eye health and night vision. One study noted that carotenoids found in milled yellow corn products such as polenta are “highly bioaccessible,” meaning they are as easily digested (to a similar or higher extent) as some more well-known carotenoid sources, such as carrots.
Strengthen your eyes and bones with this quick and easy BLT salad. Each serving offers a healthy helping of vision-enhancing vitamin A (59% DV) and vitamin K (67% DV), a bone-building nutrient that assists in calcium absorption.
