Pork Medallions in Mustard Sauce for Two
Mustard and apple juice liven up lean pork tenderloin, creating a dish that's ideal for special occasions.

Easy Cuban Picadillo for Two
My girlfriend gave me this delicious recipe years ago. I've made it ever since. Everyone who tries it absolutely loves it.
—Marie Wielgus, Wayne, New Jersey
Teriyaki Pork Kabobs for Two
Soy sauce, garlic and ginger all add Asian flavor to this quick dish and help to make it delicious without a lot of added fat. More flavor and less fat is something I strive for in my cooking, and this recipe is a favorite.
—Edie DeSpain, Logan, Utah
Lemony Spinach-Stuffed Chicken Breasts for Two
This is really easy to make and guests are always impressed. I usually serve this dish with couscous, rice or garlic mashed potatoes along with a vegetable saute or tossed salad.
—Pam Nelson, Beaverton, Oregon
Easy Chicken Broccoli Pasta for Two
This is so easy to throw together in a pinch. It's great served with some crusty bread and a nice veggie salad.
—Renee Pajestka, Brunswick, Ohio
Chicken with Garden Salsa for Two
Fresh chiles vary greatly in taste and price. A fruity serrano gives this dish authentic Mexican flavor, but jalapenos cost less and are more commonly available. To save time, use canned tomatoes and corn in the salsa.
