What's Cooking? At Goal and Maintaining Team Challenge, Week 2

Monday, January 28, 2013

Here's my week two entry, Crispy Oven Chicken and Oven "Fries":

Here's a SparkRecipe that is very similar to the chicken recipe I used. The actual recipe I used was from the Ready, Set, Go! Weight Watcher cookbook. It is copyrighted and I don't think I should post it:

Here's the SparkRecipe I used for the "fries," although I used no spices as most of my family will say, "What's that strange taste?" since they aren't used to spices on their fries. They do like catsup. I used the long wedge shape option:

I split the difference between the two cooking temperatures and found that worked out just fine. I was really surprised how much everyone liked both recipes. The kids ate it; the picky adults ate it; the people who eat everything raved about the dinner! We will definitely do these recipes again.

Happy, healthy cooking!!

    Linda, If you look you can see broccoli behind the featured menus. There was also a tossed salad and fruit for dessert. The chicken (protein) had a little corn flakes on them, not high in carbs. It was, indeed, a healthy meal. -Marsha

    Not my version of healthy fare -not a piece of greenery anywhere, carbs and more carbs.. I never had a taste for 'fried' chicken, I like it grilled (cajun blackened) or baked. I feel for you and that bland North American diet so prevelant -my sister had the same problem too when she tried to cook healthy -her family couldn't stand the strange 'spices' -nothing but salt, ketchp, relish and mustard for them lol. Maybe some day spices will take the place of oil and grease for flavorings if we are so lucky.
I do like baked sweet potato 'fries' for a treat once in a while.

    I WILL be trying this. I love fried chicken but rarely eat it because it's such a calorie and fat bomb. This version looks fantastic. Thanks so much for sharing!
