Bite It: Homemade Chicken Gravy Bowl

A ginormous bowl that includes fried items, corn niblets, gravy, and cheese cannot POSSIBLY be Hungry Girl approved, can it? Ummmm, YES it can. We promise! Our swapped-out version of this Kentucky Fried MESS will save you more than half the calories and most of the fat. We rock! But we must confess, this recipe was inspired by one of our faithful subscribers, who e-mailed in to tell us that she and her boyfriend make their own version of these bowls at home. Thanks, Angie!

Ingredients

1 cup cubed butternut squash
1 oz. skim milk
2 tbsp. canned corn niblets; heated
1/2 oz. fat-free cheese, cheddar or American; shredded
2 oz. Heinz Fat Free Classic Chicken Gravy; heated
1 Morningstar Farms Chik Patty, Original
Salt and pepper; to taste

Directions

In a covered dish, microwave butternut squash pieces for 4 to 6 minutes (until tender) in a very small amount of water. Drain very well and then mash squash with the skim milk and a little salt. Place mashed squash in a medium-sized bowl. Next, sprinkle corn niblets over your squash. Prepare "chicken" patty according to package and cut into small pieces. Place patty pieces on top of your corn-topped squash. Drizzle with gravy. Top with shredded cheese and enjoy!

The salt police may not agree, but there's a large school of thought emerging that sodium is not the devil purported to be. In fact, if you don't have high blood pressure, I wouldn't worry about it. Or you could just eat celery for the rest of your life. That works too. http://articles.cnn.com/1998-08-13/health/9808_13_salt.blood.pressure_1_lowfat-dairy-products-salt-intake-magnesium-and-calcium?_s=PM:HEALTH
