Tasty Thursday - Orange-Crumbled Baked Chicken
Well Do to the fact I have a busy busy day ahead of me.. and this is a recipe I tried one week ago today and fell in love with it (so did everyone else that was at my house to eat it), I am using one that I just posted on my May Day weight loss challenge. It is worth posting it twice, better yet it is a Weight Watchers recipe!
Orange-Crumbled Baked Chicken
2 T orange juice
2 T Dijon Mustard
1/4 t Salt
3/4 Cup Whole-Wheat Cracker crumbs
1 T grated orange zest
1 Shallot finely chopped
1/4 t freshly ground pepper
4 3 oz skinless boneless chicken thighs or breasts
1- Preheat the oven to 350F, Spray cooking spray on nonstick baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
2. In a small bowl, combine orange juice, mustard, and salt. On a sheet or paper plate, combine the cracker crumbs, orange zest, shallot, and pepper. Brush the chicken on both sides with the orange-dijon mixture, then dredge the chicken in the crumbs, firmly pressing the crumbs to coat both sides. Place the chicken on the baking sheet, bake 15 minutes, turn over and baked until cooked through 15-20 minutes longer.
