Go to their website and do an advanced search. They put nutrition info on all their recipes. I've only made the white chicken chili. I halve the recipe and my husband and I each eat a huge bowl for less than 500 calories with a little left-over for lunch the next day. I also use boneless skinless chicken breast instead of chicken thighs which saves some fat. I really want to try the roast chicken, but I haven't done that yet. Roasting a chicken in the microwave in 30 minutes?? I'm skeptical, but PC hasn't failed me yet!

I also like to use it to steam pumpkin and butternut squash (I'm sure this works for other squash as well). Pop the whole squash in the microwave for 1 min to soften the skin. Cut in half, scoop out the seeds and place in your covered baker with about an inch of water. Microwave for 20-30 minutes or until soft.

This is a stupid question but I've never had any type of squash so what does it go with? You just eat it by itself, or with something else? I think the white chicken chili is the featured recipe this month. I'll have to give that a try :) Thanks!

I recently mixed butternut squash puree into rissoto and added cayenne pepper and parmesan cheese. It was delish! My husband didn't even complain that we weren't having meat for dinner. You can also mash up butternut or acorn squash purre with some brown sugar and butter and it's delish (it doesn't take much so still calorie conscious). Or, you can just eat it as is with salt pepper and maybe a little butter. I actually started doing this with pumpkins for pumpkin pie (I have nothing against pumpkin pie from a can, but making it with fresh pumpkin... YUM!)

Microwave Meals

Microwave Beef Pot Roast
2-3 teaspoons olive oil or GARLIC INFUSED CANOLA OIL
3 1/2-4 pounds boneless chuck roast
1 onion, chopped with the food chopper or sliced with the Ultimate Mandolin (On one occasion, I was out of onion and substituted a pouch of onion soup mix and 2 -3 Tsp. of water. I sprinkled the mix over the roast and added the water to provide moisture. Use less salt if doing this)
2 cloves garlic, pressed with garlic press Pampered Chef seasoning rub of your choice (we used bell pepper \herb) to taste.

Miniature Barbecue Pork Sandwiches

Ingredients for Miniature Barbecue Pork Sandwiches or Barbecue Pork Salad
1. On Large Grooved Cutting Board, trim fat and silver skin from pork tenderloin using Boning Knife. Brush with oil using Chef's Silicone Basting Brush. Place pork into Deep Covered Baker, tucking narrower end under to create a uniform thickness. Evenly rub pork with barbecue rub.

1 cup ketchup
¼ cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons Pampered Chef Smoky Barbeque Rub
2 teaspoons cider vinegar or white vinegar

Cook’s Tips: The membrane found underneath the rack is not only tough, but it also holds in excess fat. Removing the membrane helps to render out the fat during cooking. To remove the membrane, lay the rack meaty side down. Using the tip of the Boning Knife, gently cut under the membrane on one corner. Using a paper towel, grasp the corner of the membrane and gently pull it away from the bones. Trim any excess fat along the underside of the rack.

To ensure even doneness, turn each rib over halfway through cooking using Chef's Tongs so that the undercooked sides face outward.
