Makes 15 servings
300 calories / 12F / 22C / 24P / per serving 

2 lbs. wings or drumettes
1 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
1 lemon, zested
1 Tbs. baking powder
1 Tbs. garlic powder
1 Tbs. fresh parsley, finely chopped
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. salt, kosher
½ tsp. pepper

Veggies & Dip:
3 lbs. carrots
3 lbs. cucumbers
2 lbs. cauliflower
2 lbs. broccoli
2 lbs. celery
1 ½ cups low-fat cottage cheese
½ cup nonfat, plain Greek yogurt
3 Tbs. Ranch seasoning powder (or one full packet)

1. Pat the chicken pieces dry with a paper towel.
2. Combine Parmesan cheese, lemon zest, baking powder, garlic powder, onion powder, fresh parsley, salt and pepper. Mix to combine.
3. Coat chicken with seasoning mixture and cook using preferred cooking method.

Oven Instructions: Preheat oven to 425 degrees with the oven rack in the middle-upper position. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a wire baking rack inside the baking sheet. Spray the rack with olive oil spray. Arrange wings in a single layer on a wire rack. Spray wings with olive oil spray and bake for 40 minutes, flipping wings and spraying once again with olive oil spray.

Air Fryer Instructions: Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees. Cooking the chicken in batches, place chicken wings in the bottom of the air fryer basket in a single layer and spray with olive oil spray. Set the air fryer to 400 degrees and cook for 24 minutes flipping the wings halfway through. While making other batches, place wings on a sheet pan in a 180 degree oven to keep warm.

4. While the chicken is cooking, cut and prepare the carrots, celery, cucumbers, broccoli, and cauliflower.
5. Add cottage cheese, Greek yogurt, and Ranch seasoning to a high-powered blender.  Blend on high until smooth and creamy. Add ¼ cup water if the mixture is too thick.
6. Once chicken is done baking, serve with cut vegetables and dip. Enjoy!

335 calories / 12.5F / 32C / 26.5P / per serving

3⁄4 cup white whole wheat flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1⁄4 tsp. sea salt
Dash garlic powder
Dash onion powder
1⁄2 cup nonfat, plain Greek yogurt
1⁄2 cup traditional marinara sauce
2 oz. turkey pepperoni
1 1⁄4 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
4 cups broccoli
1 Tbs. olive oil
4 Tbs. nutritional yeast flakes
Sea salt

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

2. Whisk the flour, baking powder, sea salt, garlic powder and onion powder together in a bowl. Add the Greek yogurt and use rubber spatula to fold it in until well combined. If the dough is too dry, add a tiny bit of water, if it’s too sticky, flour the surface before rolling out.

3. Roll the dough out into a large rectangular shape. Spread the marinara sauce evenly over the dough, add the pepperoni and cheese. Carefully roll the dough up lengthwise and slice into eight equal pinwheels. Place on a greased baking sheet or muffin tin. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Two pinwheels per serving.

4. Chop the broccoli into florets and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Drizzle the olive oil over the top then spray with cooking spray. Sprinkle with sea salt and 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast (this will give it a cheesy flavor and added nutritional value). Bake for 15-20 minutes. Enjoy on the side of your pinwheels.
