Expert Tips

To broil, place chicken on broiler pan and broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times provided above as a guide.

To ripen a green papaya, place it in a paper bag and allow it to sit at room temperature. It's ripe when it has turned golden yellow and yields slightly to pressure.

To cut 4 grams fat per serving, eliminate the cheese.

Complete the meal with warmed pita bread and a pasta salad. Offer meringue cookies with tea or coffee for dessert.
