To those of you who have my mom’s poppyseed chicken recipe, you can replace all of the naughty ingredients with their cheaper, healthy substitutes. I tried it recently, and I couldn’t tell a difference:

-butter with applesauce (preferable the plain “no sugar added” kind)
-sour cream with 8oz plain, fat-free yogurt (not vanilla, just “plain”)
-Ritz crackers with generic low-sodium “snack crackers” (that’s the Wal-Mart name for them)

Oh, and for those of you who do not have the recipe but want it, let me know!

Go healthy!
