500-Calorie Dinners Meal Plan: Week 4 (Page 3)

Tuesday: Cornmeal-Crusted Chicken with Pepián Sauce

Tomatillos and pepitas form the basis for pepian sauce—one version of Mexican mole—to top easy sautéed chicken breasts for tonight’s dinner. Steam some broccoli to go with it (jazz it up with lime juice and hot sauce) and make brown rice to soak up any extra sauce.
