Za'atar is a Middle Eastern blend of spices as ancient as the pyramids, but still popular today in Palestinian and Israeli cuisine. It's usually made with dried thyme, oregano, toasted sesame seeds and sumac, a reddish dried berry that adds a lemony note. Here, a chicken breast gets a major flavor boost with the floral perfume from za'atar. The fresh, tomato-cucumber salad and creamy yogurt sauce round out this delicious low-calorie meal.
Skinny Chicken Mozzarella with marinara and garlicky greens
We took the flavors you love from classic Chicken Parmigiana and reworked them into a heart-healthy, low-carb, low-calorie recipe that's big on flavor. Tender chicken breasts are roasted with Parmesan, covered with creamy mozzarella, served over savory marinara sauce, and paired with garlicky sautéed kale and spinach. The result is comforting and utterly delicious without weighing you down.
Cooking chicken on the bone means more flavor than your workaday boneless, skinless version. We make the most of this juicy cut by coating it with an herbaceous spice blend, pan searing, and then finishing the chicken in the oven. A cut this elegant deserves a side with style. A salad of fresh mozzarella, heirloom cherry tomatoes, pesto, and a balsamic reduction is nothing short of gourmet.
Something magical happens when you cook butter just past its melting point. Trust us, the brown, nutty transformation is no illusion, and when mixed with panko breadcrumbs, it elevates the topping for this mac and cheese to stratospheric heights. Not that the creamy triumvirate of Parmesan, cheddar, and mozzarella can't hold its own. Serve this mac next to the delicious mélange of Parmesan-roasted zucchini and Roma tomatoes, and watch this meal magically disappear.
