It's Tuesday, and do you know what the Weight Loss Word of the Day is? It's CHICKEN! Skinless chicken breasts are among the lowest calorie meat out there. That's one of the reasons you see them in so many diet frozen dinners. Here's a baked chicken recipe that's both low fat and tasty!

Spicy Baked Chicken Breasts

4 skinless chicken breasts
1 cup fresh bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt
No fat butter flavored vegetable spray

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly spray a baking pan with no-fat butter flavored vegetable spray. Rinse chicken and pat dry with paper towels. In a bowl, mix the bread crumbs, onion powder, garlic powder and red pepper flakes. Dip chicken in yogurt, then into crumb mixture. Place in pan. Bake uncovered 45 to 50 minutes or until chicken is done. Serve with steamed veggies and half of a medium baked potato.

Tasty! Try it and see.

Going to try this one...do you happen to know the points? Probably not much more than 5 I would think...

Mmm chicken.

I don't know for sure, but it only has the chicken breasts, the yogurt and the bread crumbs to add points, and the last two don't add much. I wonder if WW has a recipe similar to it.
