Chicken Breast

Weight Watcher friendly Oven Roast Chicken recipe that is easy to make and delicious. Great for salads or any other recipe! 2 SmartPoints per serving!

 

I love doing meal prep on Sundays.  Roasting vegetables, making salad dressing, and baking chicken.  Spending a few hours in the kitchen on Sunday is worth it to have healthy, fresh lunches to take to work during the week!  One of my favorite protein salad toppers is Oven Roasted Chicken Breast.  This recipe is easy to make and a Weight Watcher friendly recipe with only 2 SmartPoints per serving.

 

Roasting chicken breast is easy and this recipe ensures the chicken is moist and juicy.  It’s worth doing this on Sunday to have delicious chicken for the week.  No need to spent money buying a pre-made salad or heating up frozen chicken patties.  Roast your own chicken!!  You can use the chicken for weekly salads or any recipe you are making during the week.

 

In order to ensure the chicken cooks quickly and evenly, I recommend putting the chicken in between 2 peices of parchment paper and flattening out the chicken using a meat mallet.  Once the chicken is flatten a bit, season on both sides with salt and pepper then spray non-fat butter spray.  I recently got the BEST baking sheets made by Nordic Ware.  They are aluminum and ensure that anything you bake cooks evenly.  I use these for basically anything I’m baking or roasting in the oven!

  1. Would you be able to tell me how many ounces of chicken is in each serving? It looks like about 4 oz.
