In the Kitchen – Skinny “Fried” Chicken

A couple of weeks ago Mr. H & I decided to both start weight watchers and stick with it. I did it 2 years ago with a friend and did pretty well on it, but without someone to do it with I slowly lost interest. Mr. H eats pretty healthy for the most part & works out everyday, I on the other hand am the pickiest eater this side of the Mississippi & hate the gym. Being such a picky eater made weight watchers pretty hard the first time around & I really just didn’t eat much. Thanks to my introduction to the wonderful world of blogging this time around I’ve been able to make amazing meals that both of us enjoy while still sticking to the point system & feeling satisfied. A month ago I got the email for the Crazy Cooking Challenge saying that this months challenge was fried chicken & I immediately knew which recipe I wanted to test. I found this recipe on 3 Fat Chicks on a Diet. The comments had me worried that the chicken was going to be too dry if I didn’t add extra, but I didn’t want to add extra calories to something if it wasn’t necessary & let me just say I am so happy that I didn’t! The chicken turned out amazing & is being written in my recipe book as soon as I am done here! I even ended up making my own poultry seasoning since that wasn’t something I had on hand. I made just plain white rice to go with it because I needed something quick, but this would be great with mashed potatoes or corn & a biscuit.
