Slow-Cooker Salsa Chicken
For those of you think that chicken thighs are higher in fat, think again! If you use the boneless and skinless kind and trim any other visible fat from them, they are really about the same fat-wise, ounce for ounce. Dark meat always gives better flavor for saucy dishes that have stronger sauces. If you don't like the texture, by all means, use breasts. Otherwise, don't blame your choice on the fat content, since there's not enough difference to quibble over it! I like to use the black bean salsa, and it is good with yellow rice.

Gluten-Free Roasted Pork Chops and Vegetables
I make something similar in the crock pot, so I'll try this roasted one this weekend. For "NancyCox", this is supposed to be a low-sodium recipe, so if it's not salty enough for you, add some salt after cooking. Your chops may have been thinner than what it calls for if they dried out too much. Try it again with 30 min instead of 45 for the initial timing. Then turn and complete cooking until juices are clear. You could also pat dry your chops with paper towels and then brush with olive oil instead of using cooking spray to seal the meat better to retain moisture. Just some ideas- overall, very healthy meat supper.
