******************

Here is the teriyaki sticky chicken recipe, also found in our ASIAN RECIPES category.

WW review recipe board

Teriyaki sticky chicken

Oh my word! This chicken is very good, my picky DD ate every bite and was asking for more!

Serves 4
4 points per serving

4 4 oz chicken breast
1/2 cup ketchup
3 T brown sugar
2 T vinegar
2 T lite teriyaki sauce
1 tsp dry mustard powder

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray 8x8 pan with PAM. Mix all ingredients except chicken and put half of sauce in bottom of pan, then put chicken in pan and cover with remaining sauce. Bake for 40 minutes and divide any sauce that is remaining and serve over chicken. Serve chicken over rice for additional points.

Here is the lentil and brown rice pilaf recipe, also found in our VEGETARIAN/VEGAN RECIPES category.

Lentil brown rice pilaf
One serving of original recipe = 1 cup = 3 points.

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.

In a dutch oven spray with pam add a TBS. olive oil.
Saute 1 cup brown basmati rice for about 7 minutes.
Add 1 cup lentils, 4 garlic cloves, minced, 3 slices fresh peeled ginger (about 1/4 " thick), 1 cinnamon stick and 2 1/2 cups low sodium vegetable broth.
Add 1-2 tsp. of thai red curry paste.
Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve curry paste.
Take off the heat, cover and bake about one hour in the oven.

Now comes the exciting part!
You can add all sorts of stuff to this recipe to increase the fiber: Chopped onions, vegetables, ademame, raisins, sliced apples,... just use your imagination.....

**********************

Mimi's notes after making Cecile's recipe for the first time:

Absolutely wonderful dish. I loved it.

1. I suated 1 large sliced onion together with the olive oil and brown rice at the beginning.
2. At the same time I cooked in water 1/2 a cauliflower, 16 ounces bag of frozen broad(fava) beans, and 5 sliced carrots, for 5 minutes, until half done. I drained the water.
3. I added 1 teaspoon garam masala spice. Wonderful.
4. Because I added many extra vegetables and legums, I used 32 ounces (4 cups) low sodium chicken broth instead of 2 1/2 cups.
5. I used BASMATTI brown rice instead of regular brown rice.
6. This is extremely economical, very inexpensive dish that taste so wonderful!
It has full protein in it due to the combination of grains and legums.
7. I intend to add adamame (frozen soy beans), 1/2 cup of raisins and slices of one apple next time.
8. I baked it in Pyrex glass container - 17"x11"x3", and it was full all the way to the top when done.

Each serving has 4 WW points.
I used SparkPeople recipe calculator to find the points value. A great tool!

Enjoy!

Do you know how many points per serving are in the chicken recipe? I didn't see it, but I may have missed it.

Thanks,
