When you think of restaurants that are WW friendly, Cracker Barrel doesn't usually come to mind. At least, it never did for me. I've never really been a big fan of Cracker Barrel. The last time I had gone, I ordered the Chicken and Dumplings and just didn't care for them. So one day when my husband suggested we go there for dinner, I wasn't too thrilled with the idea. After I started looking up the Points values of some of their foods though, I realized that they do have some really healthy options. This is what my typical meal at Cracker Barrel now consists of: Grilled Chicken Tenderloin(6 Pts.+), Brown Rice (3 Pts.+), Tossed Salad (0 Pts.+) w/ FF Italian (1 Pts.+) Total: 10 Pts.+ - Not bad for an "Old Country Store." Here's the recipe for the chicken:
CRACKER BARREL CHICKEN
1 lb. chicken breast, cut into tenderloins
1 c. FF italian dressing
2 t. lime juice
3 T. honey
Combine all ingredients and allow to marinate at least 1 hour or over night. Remove from marinade and grill.
This chicken is so delicious, it's so easy and it's so WW friendly. I really wish I had a picture to share with you, but my evening was pretty busy. I have a sick little girl tonight and I completely forgot to take a picture. I will make this again soon so that I can remember to take a picture to post. So in place of a picture of dinner, I will share a picture of the cupcakes that I made for Addison's class at school.
Hope everyone has a Happy Valentine's Day!
So long for today...
