Baked Lemon Chicken – 5 Smart Points

I love baked chicken. It’s so easy and simple, a great and healthy way to prepare chicken. As long as I don’t overbake it, then it’s juicy and moist. I like to check the local grocery ads, and stock up on chicken when it’s on sale (legs, thighs and breasts). That way I have some in the freezer and can just stick it in the oven for dinner that night. Citrus and chicken go so well together that I thought I would combine them with a little honey, some garlic and rosemary. I made a basting sauce with broth, lemon juice, honey, garlic and Italian seasoning. I added some extra cloves of garlic and sprigs of rosemary while baking the chicken. The end result was delicious. It was a little tart, garlicy and succulent. I will definitely be doing this again. Browning the chicken before baking it ensured the juices…

Lemon Rosemary Baked Chicken Legs – 4 Smart Points

One of the things that I always look for on sale is chicken. I get it on sale and then freeze it until I come up with a delicious recipe that I want to use I for. This baked chicken is just the thing. I used chicken legs that still had bones and skin. I cooked them that way to help keep them moist and tender, but then removed the skin to eat them. Citrus goes so well with chicken, so the dressing is just perfect. A little lemon with a little tangy Dijon mustard and some garlic drizzled over the top. If you like a little more of the dressing flavor in your chicken, use skinless chicken and just bake it covered to keep it moist. I added a few vegetables, just to make it a little more appealing and have another serving of veggies for the meal. I…

Lemon Glazed Greek Chicken – 3 Smart Points

Chicken is one of my favorite meats. It’s such a great source of lean protein and it goes so well in so many different dishes. The downside is that I tend to get stuck in a little rut and fix the same things over and over again. It’s hard to get out of that and try new things. But this Lemon Glazed Greek Chicken sounded great. It’s a combination of several different recipes, since many of the Greek chicken recipes I’ve seen use a lot of olive oil. This one is more tzatziki chicken, with a yogurt based marinade. Lots of garlic and lots of lemon with those classic Greek spices, and you’ve got a delicious chicken in no time. You can use any cut of chicken you like for this, but I’d recommend removing the skin first, since the marinade will be able to soak in much better. It’s…

Ramen Chicken Soup – 7 Points +

I’m sure you’ve heard of ramen noodles. In the US, it seems like ramen noodles and mac & cheese are college student staples, or at least that’s the stereotype (I never did like macaroni and cheese out of a box). But ramen noodles aren’t just for broke college kids. Growing up, my mom always had ramen noodles on hand for chicken soup. Of course, she pitched the sauce packet and used real (homemade) chicken broth instead, then we added shredded chicken, onions, hard boiled eggs and other steamed veggies to make a chicken noodle soup. It was one of my favorite meals growing up, and I think it was one of hers too. She knew we all loved it, it was easy and it was healthy. I used carrots, bell pepper and green onions in mine, but you can add any vegetables you want to it, or serve your steamed…

Honey Dijon Chicken – 4 Points +

Next to grilling, I like baking chicken the best. It’s a great way to keep it moist and tender, not to mention easy. I like having my main dish baking, since I can get the rest of dinner finished while my main dish is baking. This honey Dijon chicken is fabulous. The glaze is just enough to give some flavor to the chicken and it helps to keep the juices in the breasts while baking them. The red pepper flakes are really optional, but add a delicious spice to the chicken. It’s a great main dish to serve with a side of brown rice pilaf filled with vegetables. If you’re not a big fan of spicy foods, just leave the red pepper flakes out, or use less. It’ll still be delicious, but it won’t be spicy. You can also grill the chicken, just spread the glaze on chicken once it’s…

Roasted Chicken with Lemon, Potatoes & Rosemary – 5 Points +

This recipe was shared with me and it sounded so good that I just had to try it. It’s a delicious twist to the traditional roast chicken. Citrus works so well with chicken, that this is a wonderful addition to any roast chicken. Cooking the chicken and the potatoes is an easy way to have most of the meal prepared in one dish. If you’re someone who doesn’t like the twiggy rosemary – use the same amount of thyme instead. It’ll be just as delicious. I used a whole chicken for this dish, since that’s what I had on hand. It works well with either a whole chicken, or chicken pieces like thighs or legs.

White Chicken Pizza – 7 Points +

Who doesn’t love a relaxed evening with a home made pizza and a movie? Sometimes it’s nice to have a different flavor of pizza. This delicious pizza is perfect for a quick and easy dinner. It goes great with a simple side salad. I make my own gluten free pizza crust, but any crust will work for this one. If you make your own crust, make a double batch. That way you can use one and freeze one for an easy meal later. Wrap the crust in two layers of plastic wrap and one layer of aluminum foil, and it’ll stay fresh for a couple of months in the freezer – that is, if it lasts that long. Don’t be afraid of the cream sauce, it’s very simple to make. Just remember to keep whisking, even if you don’t think it’s working. The flour will clump up once you…
