It's time to slim down for summer!!!!!



This is my favorite healthy chicken recipe!!! It’s quick, easy and delicious!!

NOTE: To make prep easier, prep twice the amount of chicken and freeze 1/2 of the recipe! When you want to eat it again, pull out the chicken from the freezer in the morning and it's ready to go for dinner.


Low-Fat, Low-Calorie, Low-Carb

Serves: 2-4
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients:
Easy version:
2 large chicken breasts, cut in half
1/4 cup soy sauce (saturate chicken w/ soy sauce so that there is a little extra liquid, approximately 1/4 cup)
1/2 tsp olive oil
1/4 tsp ground ginger
2 small cloves garlic (or 1/2 tsp dried garlic)
1/4 tsp onion powder (or use 1-2 fresh green onions or both!)
1/2 packet Sweet 'n Low

You can also add:
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp parsley flakes
1/4 tsp sesame seeds

Directions:
1) Combine all ingredients.
2) Place on a baking pan, covered with foil, and coated with non-stick spray.
3) Bake for 30 minutes, at 350 degrees F, or until juices run clear.
OR: Cook at 375 degrees F in a ceramic dish for 30 minutes, uncovered.
This method helps you retain all of the marinade juices, and you can use these juices for salad. The last time I used this method, I served the chicken with a lettuce/shallot/avocado salad and Walden Farms Sugar/Fat/Calorie Free Thousand Island dressing. The dressing was delicious mixed with the leftover soy sauce and chicken drippings!
