Expert Tips

Nonfat dressing delivers great flavor with no extra fat grams. Try several brands to discover your favorite tomato-based nonfat dressing.

Try pork chops in this recipe; use 1/2-inch chops and marinate them as directed. Grill for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the chops are no longer pink in the center, turning chops once. Take care not to overcook them; pork dries out very quickly.

To broil chicken and onion slices, place on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times above as a guide, turning once.
