Grilled Chicken Aglio e Olio with Broccoli and Mini Ziti ~ Low Calorie

Chicken with Broccoli and Ziti. It is a popular dish served in many restaurants and diners where I live on Long Island. The only thing is I think they make it with too much oil.

Stewed Chicken in Tomatoes

One of my very favorite ways to have chicken is stewed in tomatoes! It is so simple and so amazingly delicious! No vegetables are in it except tomatoes, so it does not taste like a cacciatore.
