This is a lighter version of a meal that my friend from Lebanon made when we were in college. All the flavor less all the fat. I ran this through the WW recipe builder and it is 7 points. Add green beans and you have an entire meal for 7 points.
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 4 small potatoes
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 cup lemon juice (fresh)
- 1 tablespoon Splenda sugar substitute
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- 3⁄4 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic clove
- 1 tablespoon parsley
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- Cut chicken into bite-size pieces.
- Cut potatoes into bite-size pieces.
- Place chicken and potatoes in glass casserole dish.
- Squeeze the juice out of the lemon into a bowl. Remove the seeds.
- In same bowl with the lemon juice, add the Splenda, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic. You can add more garlic if you like a stronger taste. Mix all these ingredients together.
- (The builder in Zaar had a problem recognizing minced garlic. Fresh Garlic will work, but I use the minced garlic that is packaged in a jar).
- Pour the mixture over the chicken and potatoes and mix well. Make sure that you coat the chicken and potatoes.
- Place in oven. Cook for about 30 minutes until chicken is done and potatoes are golden. Continue basting during the cooking time.
- Depending on the size you cut the potatoes and chicken, you cooking time will very - so you will need to check you time.
Have to say, the first bite--I wasn't a fan. Same with my husband. But we tried a few more bites and it got better and better. I can't wait to make this again. Thanks for posting this.
Yum! Yum! Yum! This recipe is SO good! Similar to my favorite Greek Roasted Chicken and potatoes...but much easier!
This is a wonderful easy entrÃ©e. I love the tang of the lemon juice and balsamic vinegar. I pared this recipe down to 2 servings and prepared as directed. I did cook it for about 45 minutes in my toaster oven. The potatoes did not get as done as I would have liked, perhaps due to my toaster oven. I will also dice them smaller next time to help them get done faster, or as another reviewer stated, zap for a couple of minutes in the microwave. The chicken was tender and juicy with a refreshing taste, great for only 7 WW pts. I really enjoyed this recipe! Prepared for PAC 2008 Thanks Chef Alice Robertson Clark!
