    Seems chicken is a go to for most of us. My go to meal is chicken strips salad with feta cheese and the usual salad stuff...except I switch shredded cabbage for lettuce. I find it more filling, tastier and cheaper.

    My go to is Cabbage Soup, not a special recipe, just low sodium broth, and lots of low carb veggies. (whatever I have on hand). Very filling!

    Love this recipe! My "go to" family dinner recipe is Chicken Marsala - low calorie, low carb, high protein -- and most of all delicious!! I like to serve this over Cauliflower Rice.

    Chicken Marsala
    3 oz Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
    1 tsp EVOO
    1 clove garlic
    .25 cup mushrooms - sliced
    2 Tbs Marsala Wine
    .25 cup Low sodium chicken stock/broth
    1 oz frozen peas
    1 tsp Thyme
    salt and pepper to taste

    Brown chicken breast in olive oil with garlic over low heat (so the garlic does not burn) for 3 minutes per side. Add stock, wine, mushrooms, thyme and simmer for 8 minutes until sauce reduces and thickens (add a small amount of cornstarch slurry to thicken sauce even more). Add peas, simmer for additional 2 minutes until tender.

    Cauliflower Rice
    1 small head cauliflower
    salt and pepper

    It does not work well as a substitute for rice in casseroles where the function of the rice is to absorb liquid.

    To make this dish the most easily and to have it come out the best, a food processor is recommended.

    1. Process fresh cauliflower until it is the size of rice, either using the plain steel blade or the shredder blade of the food processor. Alternatively, you can shred it with a hand-held grater, or even use a knife, if you have the dexterity to chop it up VERY finely.

    2. Microwave it in a tightly covered dish for 4 to 5 minutes. DO NOT ADD WATER. Cauliflower absorbs water like crazy, and the "granules" will become gummy. To keep it fluffy, just let the moisture in the cauliflower do its work. Butter, salt & pepper can be added after cooking to add a little flavor.
