Buttermilk ‘Fried’ Chicken Recipe from Robin Takes 5
I like to cook and all, but some nights I just want to make something that’s healthy, uncomplicated and quick. While many cookbooks claim to do this, a lot of times they require you to bust out about 20+ ingredients or rely on processed foods to make dinner easier to whip up. Heck, half of the annoyance of cooking is getting ingredients out and prepped, and these days I rarely buy anything that comes in a box unless it’s a whole grain. Well, Robin Miller of Food Network celeb chef fame heard my plea and created a new cookbook: Robin Takes 5.
Also a nutritionist, Miller’s new healthy cookbook features 500 delicious and simple recipes that require five ingredients or less (not including olive oil, salt and pepper, of course). Each recipe is also low in sodium and has 500 calories or less. While I wish the cookbook had just a few more color photos (I’m a sucker for pretty photos, I’ll admit), you can’t beat the recipes. Divided into chapters on soups, pizzas, pastas, poultry, beef and pork, seafood, side dishes and desserts, it has so many good ol’ standbys (hello, healthy fried chicken recipe we’re about to share with you) and more foodie flavors like Ham Wraps with Manchego and Figs or Prosciutto Panini with Baby Spinach and Fontina. Not to mention that each recipe clearly lists out its nutritionals, so you know just what goodies you’re putting in your belly!
