How to make your favorite recipes healthier
This recipe was really simple to make healthier – I swapped a traditional tortilla, which is basically a bunch of empty calories, for one of the totally amazing new Hungry Girl Flatout Wraps. I breaded my own chicken, baked them, then coated them with my fave hot sauce. I swapped regular ranch for a super yummy fat-free version – and added shredded lettuce, and tomatoes. Sooooo good! And – here’s a great recipe if you want a super quick ‘n easy way to make your own chicken fingers. Then look below for a quick tip on making your own low-fat ranch dressing too.
- Baked chicken fingers
- Hot sauce of your choice. I prefer Frank's RedHot Sauce
- Hungry Girl Flatout Wraps
- Homemade Low-Fat Ranch Dressing - see below recipe.
- Shredded lettuce
- Chopped tomatoes
- This couldn't be easier! Bake up your homemade chicken fingers. You can use the basic recipe I posted above, or one you regularly use. This saves a TON of calories and fat grams versus frozen chicken fingers.
- Coat them in the hot sauce to cover.
- Heat up a Hungry Girl Flatout Wrap for 20 seconds in the microwave, then top with your buffalo chicken, low-fat ranch dressing, lettuce, and tomatoes.
- Roll up the wrap, and enjoy - knowing you're getting a ton of fiber in your wrap, and saving a ton of calories by making these easy switches!
How to Make Homemade Low-Fat Ranch Dressing
You just need a few simple ingredients for this – 1 envelope ranch dressing mix, 1 cup non-fat milk , and 1 cup non-fat plain yogurt. Mix ‘em up, and let cool in the fridge for about an hour. Super yummy, and tastes much better than store-bought low-fat ranch dressings.
