Bread SlicesIt seems like a simple thing, choosing poultry. For years folks have thought that eating healthy means more chicken and fish. I hear that all the time from patients. So what to choose and how? Your New Pantry: Poultry Choices

Featured Recipe

Stuffed Creole Chicken

Stuffed ChickenStuffed chicken recipes like this one are a lot easier than you think. The key is to pound the chicken just right. Use a piece of cling wrap about 18 inches long. Place the chicken breast or thigh on the left half of the plastic film and fold the other half over. I have a meat mallet but you can use the back of a sauce pan. Start with the thickest part of the meat and pound lightly, working your way toward the outside.

This recipe is safe for Coumadin (warfarin) users, is low in sodium, and is gluten-free. It may be safe for those lactose-intolerant persons who can tolerate some cheese. Those with GERD / Acid Reflux should avoid it.
