January calls for a simple, warming and thrifty dinner.

It’s January. Time for frugality—not only for our pocketbooks, but for our waistlines and taste buds as well. Take two ingredients that grace cupboards and refrigerators most of the time—canned tomatoes and boneless, skinless chicken breasts—add sliced mushrooms, a little seasoning, chicken broth, and mozzarella cheese, and you have an everyday dish that’s perfect for wintry evenings. No truffle oil, no fresh basil in January, no fanfare—just a comforting chicken dinner. A crisp romaine lettuce salad and a simple vinaigrette round out the meal. Low in fat, high in nutrients, healthy and wholesome—a meal that’s the voice of reason.
