4 ounces No Yolks egg noodles, uncooked
3/4 pound ground chicken breast, skinless
1/2 cup bell peppers, chopped
1/2 cup onions, chopped
25 slices reduced fat turkey pepperoni, chopped
14 ounces pizza sauce
8 ounces fat free Mozzarella cheese, shredded
Cook egg noodle substitute according to package directions.
In a skillet, combine chicken, bell peppers, and onions. Cook until chicken is no longer pink and vegetables are tender. Stir in noodles, pepperoni, and pizza sauce. Cook until heated through. Sprinkle with cheese. Cover and let stand until cheese has melted.
Not all ground poultry is as healthy as one may think. Ground turkey or chicken often includes the skin and dark meat, adding a lot of fat and calories. Look for lean or breast on the label to ensure it includes only breast meat, which is much leaner.
