From "Everyone Loves Chicken" by Weight Watchers. I borrowed my friend's book and I'm posting what sounds interesting for future reference. This is 4 points for 2 slices.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Adjust the oven racks to divide the oven into thirds.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and spray a large roasting pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Mix the chili powder and cumin in a small bowl; stir in the oil and lime juice until the mixture forms a thick paste.
  4. Loosen the skin around the turkey breast by running your fingers between the skin and the meat, starting at the tips of the breast halves.
  5. Once the skin is loosened, divide the spice mixture between the 2 halves and spread it liberally onto the meat, patting the skin back into place.
  6. Place the turkey breast into the roasting pan.
  7. bake in the lower third of the oven, basting with pan juices every 20 minutes, until an instant read thermometer inserted in the breast registers 170 degrees F., about 2 hours.
  8. If the pan juicesdry out before the turkey is cooked through, add the broth to baste the bird occasionally.
  9. Transfer the turkey to a cutting board and let rest 10 minutes before carving.
  10. Remove the skin before eating.
