(NAPSA) - Fast food can be healthy food if you know where to look. And the easiest place to find healthy fast food is in your kitchen.
The new "Pillsbury GOOD FOR YOU!" cookbook can help families with the daily challenge of making fast, healthy and flavorful dinners despite today's busy schedules.
The book features 170 healthy, delicious recipes that contain less fat, sugar and salt than regular recipes. All can be prepared in 35 minutes or less, with more than half of the recipes taking 20 minutes or less. Here's a tasty "Super Express" sample:
Start to Finish: 20 Minutes
- 1 box (4.6 oz) taco shells (12 shells)
- 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts (3/4 lb), cut into thin, bite-size strips
- 1 teaspoon grated gingerroot
- 1 small clove garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 large green onion, sliced
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 1/2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
If desired, heat taco shells as directed on box.
Heat large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, gingerroot and garlic; cook 3 to 5 minutes, stirring often, until lightly browned.
Stir in soy sauce, honey, onion and pepper flakes to coat. Reduce heat to low; cover and cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink in center.
To serve, place scant 1/4 cup chicken mixture in each taco shell. Top each with lettuce. Serve immediately.
