Mondays recipe and positive start to the week . . .

Good Monday morning to you - hope you all had a great weekend. Why do they always go so fast?


THIS IS A WEIGHT WATCHERS RECIPE:

Crusted Honey Mustard Chicken

16PointsPlus Value
Prep time: 12 min
Cook time: 15 min
Serves: 4

We added a twist to these baked, not fried;chicken breasts by coating them with honey mustard before dipping them into cereal crumbs. So crisp, so tasty, so good.

Ingredients:

1 spray(s) cooking spray
2/3 cup(s) lite honey mustard dressing
1/8 tsp table salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
2 tsp dill, freshly chopped
1 medium uncooked scallion(s), finely sliced
1 cup(s) cornflake crumbs
1 pound(s) uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast(s), four 4 oz pieces

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat a shallow pan with cooking spray.

In a small bowl, combine honey mustard dressing, salt, pepper, dill and scallions; remove 1/3 cup and set aside.

Place cornflake crumbs in a shallow bowl. Dip chicken into dressing mixture and then cornflake crumbs; place in prepared pan.

Bake until chicken is golden and no longer pink in center, about 15 minutes.

Drizzle remaining dressing mixture (the 1/3 cup that was set aside) over chicken breasts and serve. Yields 1 piece of chicken and about 1 1/3 tablespoons of dressing per serving.

Doesn't this look delicious - kind of a different spin on chicken.

I love new ways to fix chicken. This looks very tasty.

The Boston Lady said...

Yummy! This week will be a great week Sandie! And I love "It's A Wonderful Life" too. Makes me cry every time. It's a good reminder to us all. Ann

Nancy said...

Looks yummy; I'm going to have to try this receipt....

You are a treat....

Starting Over, Accepting Changes - Maybe said...

16 points, wow, that is more than half the points that I can have a day. However, if I just do a grape and apple day, that could be doable. It sure looks yummy, and therein lies the problem. Will I be able to stop at just one serving? Then there is my Gummy Bear addiction - I HAVE TO HAVE MY GUMMY BEAR SNACK. Oh my, I think that day could be a 40 pointer. I am feeling guilty just talking about it.

Modern Day Disciple said...

Oh I so am dying to eat that! YUMMY! Will try. I love the list too. Might make a scrapbook page on it!

Jane said...

I really liked the look of the chicken,and that it's a weight watchers helped too,will have to try this. I love those same movies as well. And the grand kid's are my heart! Blessings Jane

Stacy said...

That chicken sounds delicious! I'd make it tonight if my daughter wasn't going to be around (she can't eat chicken...long story).

Walking on Sunshine... said...

I'm answering your question about Atlanta on my blog. Right before we moved into our new house in PA, hubby was on active duty stationed in Ft. Dix, NJ. He received orders to go to Atlanta for 6 months to work with First Army. He packed up and left and the kids and I stayed here and waited for the house to be complete and get them enrolled in the new school, etc. He would fly home every few weeks for a few days and at the end of his 6 month tour, he received another set of orders for another 6 months, until he was there for 2 years and finally was able to get orders to come back to NJ. He would come home on weekends, about a 3 hour drive. The two years he was in Atlanta, the kids and I would join him for the entire 3 month break from school. We had a wonderful time. We thought of moving down there to be with him, but the Army kept reassuring him they only needed him for 6 months. And we believed them! :)

So many inspirational things on this blog. I have seen your comments on other blogs and I was so happy that you commented on mine. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I am so blessed in that my husband does most of the cooking here, but I still like to read recipes. Have a great day.

silverthoughts2 said...

That chicken sounds really good, and easy to make! I need to try it for sure!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

That chicken sounds yummy. We never fry foods in our house.
Gyro's are the best. I can't wait to visit my dad in Florida and have one in Tarpon Springs. They have some of the best! Since I am doing low carb I will only be eating the meat but that's okay.

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

It's so nice reading about you and getting to know you! We seldom get the chance to do that..and it's really nice.
I don't do the awards thing anymore..but I like to read them!
:)
You are such a neat person!!

laurie said...

lovely chicken recipe, sounds very ymmy!
I love when people share about themselves,, very interesting!!

Michaele said...

I am going to print out the thought for today and paint it on a canvas and hang it up : )

Maria@BubblegumandDuctTape said...

Hi Sandie,
That looks delicious!!! yummy. Funny about the writing on the wall in the picture. It reminds me of the first time I visited my neighbors. My house is full of energy. My living room is a mustard yellow and my dining room an avocado green and my kitchen is a bright green, almost florescent. My house just screams when you walk in the door, including the furniture all standing upright to greet you with a LOUD HELLO. There is no mistake, once you walk in, you're expected to speak in a LOUD VOICE. So, in contrast, when I walked into my neighbor's house, I found myself having to whisper. They are an older couple in their 80's and the colors in their home are pale pink and light beige. Up until then, I hadn't realized how "energetic" my house was and the photo you posted reminded me of that.

BTW, I have a gift for you. Can you please email me your address, I don't have it in my address book.

Journeyin' Lady... said...

The WW chicken recipe sounds SO good --- and I don't even like friend chicken!
And, yes, very hard to imagine that you are more of a listner than a talker!

Ann said...

The chicken looks really good and I love honey mustard but I would never get Wade to eat it since it has honey in it.

Debbie said...

Your two favorite movies are two of my favorites too.

That chicken looks delicious. I can't get my head around the new points system with weight watchers. I liked the old points.

Flora said...

That chicken sounds so wonderful...and I just bought some chicken breasts...so THANK YOU...I will give it a try!!!

Belle said...

The chicken looks scrumptious. I will try it too.

Sharon said...

That recipe looks delicious. Was the mustard Grey Poupon?? Do I have to wear Docker pants when I eat it?? (Poupon Pants - honestly, Sandie - you are a scamp!)

Homemade Alaska said...

That chicken looks wonderful. My kids will love it. Thanks for sharing it!

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

You would NEVER guess that was a WW recipe! Sounds absolutely delicious. I love the "we do second chances" quotes. Perfect! blessings ~ Tanna

Sue said...

What a good sounding recipe and from Weight Watchers....that's encouraging because it doesn't sound like diet food...I will have to try it...Thanks for sharing!

DeanO said...

^..^Corgidogmama said...

Just LOVE your new header!!! It's perfect for your blog!

Betty (picture circa 1951) said...

That sounds good. I printed it out. Thanks.

Mevely317 said...

I'd never have guessed Mediterranean food as your fav, Sandie ... aren't these personal glimpses fun?

Oh, I wish that "In This Home" piece was available in wall art or a standing plaque. Wouldn't it make a great homewarming gift?

Grandma Bonnie said...

Grandchildren, Mediterranean food and chocolate. Hmm seems like we have a lot in common. Thanks for the weight watchers recipe I can use it this week I am so sure!!

ocmist said...

That recipe sounds totally scrumptious!!! I'll have to try to remember to get some of that honey mustard and give it a try! I LOVE crunchy foods!

So THAT is what Mediterranean food is. I like those things too, but rarely get a chance to eat them. I really love lamb, too, but it is SO EXPENSIVE around here!

You deserve any awards you get. I always enjoy visiting here!
