Thanks Christine. I just saw your recipe and will try it.

Some additional notes to the oven fried chicken recipe I posted below.
I made a bunch of the coating mix in advance and store in a large glass canning jar. Then I just pour out the amount I need onto a plate to coat the number of pieces I am cooking. Saves a lot of time.......

I have made it several times but then I switched it up for a bit of a change. I used lemon pepper instead of pepper.and left out the paprika. I have also experimented with some different herbs and love using Thyme. Now I have a couple of "flavours" ready to use.

I found that putting the chicken on a piece of parchment paper before baking will help prevent the chicken from sticking to the pan. Who knew? I am a new convert to using parchment paper.

Lastly, this recipe does not do well in stove top cooking. One day I did not really have the time so I just put in a small pan. Now I never fry using oil, I usually steam using just a bit of water, but the water disolves the milk coating and makes an (oh oh, not ooey) gooey mess!

Here is an easy Chicken dinner that you can enjoy.
Chicken Italian
4 Chicken Breasts (I prefer the skin free, bone free Tyson Chicken Breasts)
1 32 ounce bottle of either Campbell's Tomato Juice or V-8 Juice
Italian seasoning to taste

You place your chicken in a baking dish and pour the Tomato/V-8 juice to cover it. Cover your dish and you can bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours, 400 degrees and bake for 1 hour or you can do it like I do, put it in the crock pot and cook it on low for 4-6 hours.

I generally make brown rice (white rice shoots up the blood sugars) and a green vegetable with it.

I have a really easy dessert to make for Christmas. It is Black Forest Pie.
You will need: 1 Keebler Ready-Crust Graham pie crust, reduced fat
3 cups skim milk
2 (4 serving) boxes Jell-O instant Chocolate or Chocolate Fudge Sugar
Free/Fat Free pudding (I prefer chocolate Fudge as it is a deeper flavor)
Comstock Sugar Free Cherry Pie Filling/Topping (Great Value brand for you
Wal-Mart Shoppers)
Sugar Free Cool Whip

Mix the 3 cups of skim milk with the 2 boxes of pudding. Place in the graham cracker crust and refrigerate for about an hour. Then spread the Cherry pie filling on top of the chocolate pudding and refrigerate for an additional 30-45 minutes. This will make 8 servings, and as you place your pie in either a bowl or plate, put 1 tablespoon of the Cool Whip on top. For anyone following Weight Watchers, one serving is 5 points.

I never tried it with anything else, and I used recipe "as-is" because my sister must eat gluten free. We all found it so tasty and delish..... Now I make sure I keep some powdered milk on hand "just in case I want to make this"

Some companies make have it labeled as Skim Milk Powder, or Instant Skim Milk..... If you can't find anything like that where you live, maybe you could try bread crumbs or paramsean cheese or a combo of several things. Sorry, I am really not much help at all.....

I could not find the Gruyere cheese in my store, so I used the low-fat Mozzarella shredded cheese and it came out nice. I used the eggs, but I'm sure if you used the equivalent in Egg Beaters it would come out okay.

I ran the recipe through the Weight Watchers recipe builder and it came up with the Points Plus 5 point value.

I did some research and Gruyere cheese is a hard cheese made in Switzerland. It has an earthy taste. I also found out that if you use an aged swiss cheese, you will get a very similar taste as if you used the Gruyere. I think if you were to get a block of aged swiss and shredded it in a food processor, then spread it in the bottom of the pie crust, this will work in the recipe.

What kind of cheese is that? I saw it recently in another recipe. Is there a sub if I can't find it? What about the eggs? Do you have to use whole eggs or will egg whites or egg sub work? 5 point plus only? That is awesome! Thanks! Can't wait to try it!

Here is a recipe I came up with two years ago to get protein and vegetables into my 77 year old mom

Chicken Tortolini Soup

6 cups chicken brother home made or store bought ( I use low sodium)
1 8 oz can of tomato sauce
1/ cup of cooked chicken
1/2 cup of summer squash
1/2 cup zuchinni
1/2 cup of fresh spinach
1 cup of fresh tortolini any one you like( can also be frozen)( I like the chicken sausage one)
1 clove of garlic
1/2 cup of fresh parsley
1 tsp of itallain seasoning ( I like penzys)
Salt and pepper to taste
sprinke a little parmsan cheese on it if you like.
( note you can add carrots and other vegetables as you like)


I saute my onions till tender and then add garlic and everything else. bring to a boil and then down to a simmer for at least 20 minutes till tortolini is tender . I gave this recipe to my friend in Florida. She took two crock pots full to a pot luck she said she had to give the recipe to 30 ladies she said it was a real hit and easy to make. Love and Light Carol

heres a recipe I think you might like
Greek buritto Recipe

Marinade 1/4 cup olive oil, 1/3 cup of red wine, meat 1/2 lb ( chicken, beef or lamb what ever you perfer) 2 cloves of garlic chopped, 1 onion sliced, TBSP greek seasoning ( I like penzy) 1 tsp of dried or fresh mint. Put in the refrigerator let marinate for at least 2 hours. Cook on grill till done meat reaches proper temperatue on your meat therometer.

When cooked. Slice meat thinly. Heat up a floured tortia 30 seconds in a microwave Place meat on tortia, add sliced tomatoes, cucumber on top. put some feta or houlimi or provolone cheese on top. Squeeze some fresh lemon and a dollop of greek yogurt or sour cream. Roll up like a burrito and enjoy. Note if you can get some really good pita bread is even better. But where I live there is none. My husband likes it best with Lamb or beef.
I like it with chicken. you only have to put a little bit of meat and lots of tomato and cucumbers. one of our favorite meals.

Christine-- Glad you liked it! I found it pretty filling too. I ate a side salad with mine too and just vinegar, so it was all just 3 points! I use different veggies each time. You could use fat free cheese, but I like the taste and texture of the 2% cheeses.

Melissa,
I tried your pizza thin recipe. Loved it. It was not as large as a single serve pizza, but was filling. I tried some diced mushroom, green pepper, onion and tomato, the turkey pepperoni and also sprinkled Italian Seasoning for the oregano smell. Had it with a side salad and it made a great dinner. Yum! emoticon

I think I would prefer V8 too.

Linda-- I read in a Hungry girl newsletter that V8 is one of the items that has been gradually lowering sodium content. I think I read they have already lowered the sodium content by 13%. I"ll see if I kept that newslettter and post that piece here!

I used to use V8 to cook rice as it had a nice taste, but I have not been able to use it because of the high sodium. Maybe if they've come out with the "loso" version, I may be able to add it back into my pantry!. Yippee!

I'll tell you how this recipe has changed. My mom originally made it with Tomato Juice, but I liked the taste of V-8 Juice more, so I started using that instead of the tomato juice. Just shows how things change from one generation to another. emoticon

I like EASY! I also read where V8 has decreasing the sodium content gradually, so it is lower in sodium than it used to be! Yay! I don't know about Tomato Juice tho.... Thought I'd add a quick and easy single person meal too....

Pizza Thins

1 Arnold's Multi-Grain Sanwich thin (split) -- use any brand there are a few out there now!
1/4 Cup Ragu Old World Pizza Sauce
1/4 Kraft 2% Mozerella Cheese (grated)
10 slices Hormel Turkey Pepperoni

Spread sauce evenly over the 2 halves of the sanwich thin, then spread cheese evenly over the sauce and then place 5 slices of the turkey pepperoni on each half. Bake in 350 degree oven until cheese is bubbly, about 8 to 10 min. I like mine to cook a little longer to crisp up the pepperoni! I havne't entered this on SP yet to find the nutritionals, but on Weight Watchers it is only 3 points! I eat a garden salad with just vinegar and have a 3 point meal!

Hello!
I thought I would pass along a recipe that my mother made when I was younger. It;s called:

Chicken Italian

Use either one package of Tyson's Pick of the Chix or use 6 Chicken Breasts (8 boneless skinless breasts) if you like all white meat.

32 oz. bottle of Campbell's Tomato Juice or V-8 Juice (your choice).

Italian Seasoning to taste.

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Place skinned chicken in casserole dish, pour tomato/V-8 juice over the chicken; add italian seasoning to taste, cover.

3. Place covered dish in oven, bake for 90 minutes.

Note: This can be prepared previous night/earlier in the day and placed in oven just before you need it. Serve with rice and a vegetable and you have a simple meal that is easy to clean up after. (I like these kind of dinners).
