We can exercise to our hearts content…but being healthy…being fit… takes a complete package. You need sleep, you need to eat right, and you need to destress! Today’s Wii Eat Healthy is Dinner…an easy, quick recipe that you can make any night of the week…you can even toss it in the freezer to have on hand when there isn’t any time to cook!
Greek Lemon Chicken and Potatoes
1/2c. fresh lemon juice
1/2c. fat-free chicken broth
2 Tbsp. olive oil
4 medium garlic cloves; minced
1 1/2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs
1 lb. uncooked new potatoes, cut in half (about 10 potatoes)
Place lemon juice, broth, olive oil, garlic and oregano in a large resealable bag or medium glass bowl. Add chicken, seal bag or cover bowl and marinate at least 2 hours or up to overnight.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 9 x 11″ pan with cooking spray.
Place chicken and marinade in pan, add potatoes Bake 45 min (breasts) or 60 min (thighs) or longer for softer potatoes. Yield is 1 breast or 2 thighs and appx 5 potato halves per serving.
This is 8 Weight Watchers Points Per Serving. Pair it with some fresh, steamed green beans to round out your meal…be full, be healthy with very little mess to clean up when you are finished!
*To make ahead and freeze: After you have added the chicken to the marinade, seal bag with as little air in the bag as possible. Set in the freezer on a flat surface (cookie sheet or shelf) to freeze. The night before you plan to serve, take it out of the freezer and let it thaw in the fridge. Marinate all day the next day before baking.
* The longer you let this marinate, the better the flavor will be when you prepare it.
* This would be a great freezer meal to make for a friend with a new baby or who has been in the hospital.
