Noley,
this recipe works great with grilled chicken!  Cuts the calories way down.  I also use whole wheat bread.  I love it…

Great Idea!  This is what everyone needs to do—not waste anything!
I would love to see lower calorie recipes.

Thanks, I love you Paula Deen!

Sometimes simple is best. Have your test kitchen try this.
Take chicken wings, leave the skin. Slobber butter on them after you cut the outside limb off. (No need wasting butter on a bone) I use seasonal on them and put them in a 400 degree over, upper middle rack for 2 hours.
They come out crispy as if they were fried. Put a dipping sauce next to it and watch your friends eat you out of houseand home.
I make a simple hot mustard sauce for mine.

These recipes are really good but it would be great to have some that are better on calories. Is there any chance of that? Thanks!
