This recipe is a great way to use up leftover chicken. I've even used canned chicken, as long as it's drained well. I usually serve the patties with flavored rice, a vegetable and salad.—Larry Laatsch, Saginaw, Michigan
I am a mom of three grown boys," writes Eileen Hagist of Bancroft, Iowa. "Back when they were in school and I needed to put a meal on the table in a hurry, I could always count on this recipe. Served with a green salad and cold milk, it always filled them up."
In Springfield, Missouri, Kristen Feola stir-fries this combination of tender chicken chunks, onions, broccoli, pepper and rice. Seasoned with garlic, ginger and a simple pineapple sauce, the made-in-moments main course includes crunchy chopped peanuts.
This mildly flavored stir-fry combines tender strips of chicken with vegetables and popular ramen noodles. "I came up with this recipe when I wanted a quick-fix meal for myself," shares Dawn Boothe of Lynn Haven, Florida. "Sometimes I change the vegetables or substitute ground turkey for the chicken."
A delectable sauce starring Dijon mustard and white wine tops off the poached-to-perfection chicken in Herbert Bray's delightful meal-in-one-dinner. "People who taste this unique dish can't believe I found it in a collection of lighter recipes," he reports from Johnstown, Pennsylvania. Carrots and onions are cooked with the chicken and round out the meal nicely.
Simple yet elegant, this entree salad is one of my husband's favorites. We love the juicy chicken, fresh greens and bread that's toasted over an open flame. Add whatever beans your gang prefers.

A homemade dressing lightens up these refreshing tortilla wraps. The avocado, bacon, blue cheese and tomato deliver the flavors I enjoy most while keeping me on my healthy eating plan.

It's hard to believe that something that comes together this easily could be tasty and lower in fat. This dish is pretty zippy, but if you like your stir-fries extra spicy, increase the red pepper flakes a bit.
