Looking for an elegant but easy dinner you can put together in a twinkling for guests or unexpected visitors? These lightly breaded medallions from the Light & Tasty Test Kitchen are truly something special!
"This herbed chicken has been a family favorite since I clipped the recipe out of a newspaper some years ago," writes Mrs. Pat Miller of Joplin, Missouri. "It's often on our dinner table, since chicken is a staple in my freezer. If I'm out of lemon, I substitute a sprinkling of lemon pepper."
Authentic Mexican dishes like this one are flavorful and naturally low fat without sacrificing the taste. The flavors leave you always wanting that next bite. Just a preference is a squeeze of lime juice over the avocado.
These moist chicken rolls get their appealing look from a golden crumb coating and wonderful spinach and onion filling. They're good right out of the oven, but you can also serve them chilled for an elegant lunch.

For a special occasion dinner, I stuff the turkey breast with onion, cloves and and orange before baking it. The results is a wonderful aroma as the turkey is roasting...and great flavor! Removing the skin from the bird from the bird before serving helps trim the fat...and the sweet glaze drizzled over individual slices makes a fantastic alternative to gravy.—Nancy Zimmerman, Cape May Court House, New Jersey
Moist, tender and slightly sweet from the marinade, this juicy steak boasts wonderful flavor and oh-so-easy preparation. Serve with potatoes and a green vegetable for a complete meal.

In contrast to traditional tacos, these taste complete as is, without further garnishes or sauces. I’ve also made this using bite-sized pieces of chicken thighs and increasing the cooking time appropriately. —Helen Glazier, Seattle
"I won a community recipe contest several years ago with this spicy dish," relates Jackie Selover of Sidney, Ohio. "I make it often for my family, but it's pretty enough to serve guests." Red pepper flakes put a little zing in the shrimp, and the lightly sauteed veggies are crisp-tender and colorful.
You can enjoy these tender turkey rolls and not feel the least bit guilty. Although stuffed with ham and cheese, they're still lower in fat. These special taste and appearance make them nice for company.
