Orange-Crumbed Baked Chicken
This recipe from "Weight Watchers" produces a moist, juicy chicken that is full of flavor. Serve it along with mashed potatoes and green beans for a total points plus value of 7!
We had guests for dinner, so I actually tripled this recipe.
serves 4 ( 4 points + )
2 T. orange juice
2 T. Dijon mustard
½ tsp. reduced sodium soy sauce
¾ c. whole wheat cracker crumbs ( I used Ritz)
1 T. grated orange zest
¼ tsp. ground pepper
4 ( 3 oz) boneless, skinless chicken thighs
Preheat oven to 375 and spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
In a small bowl, combine the orange juice, soy sauce, and Dijon mustard.
In another shallow bowl, combine the cracker crumbs, orange zest and pepper.
Coat chicken on both sides with mustard mixture. Then press crumbs firmly onto both sides of chicken.
Place chicken on baking sheet. Bake 15 minutes; turn over and bake an additional 15-20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
