I Think I Live in Siberia

Well, it's really Colorado but feels like Siberia today. By the way, it's still winter in case you were wondering. It was blowing and snowing so hard today that you couldn't see anything but white. Great for a bride but not so great out your window!!! My OP has been good. So far this week I have been on target and the scale did show me a little improvement today. I'm posting a journal and a recipe.

I said I would post a recipe for Chicken Parmigiana Over Spaghetti Squash. Here it is.


4 chicken breasts - 4 oz each
1/2 cup seasoned breadcrumbs (I used italian)
2 tsp italian seasoning
salt and pepper to taste (I also added a little grinder garlic salt)
4 tsp olive oil
2 cups tomato sauce
4 Tblsp marinara sauce
3 cups spaghetti squash, cooked

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat an oven proof dish with cooking spray. Mix breadcrumbs and seasonings in a large zip lock bag. Throw in the chicken and shake to coat. Meanwhile heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and cook until lightly browned on both sides. Set aside. Place the spaghetti squash in the oven proof dish and pour the tomato sauce over it. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the cheese. Place browned chicken on top of the cheese and top each breast with 1Tblsp of marinara sauce. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Bake for about 20 minutes or so or until bubbling and cooked through.

My calculation is 6 points per serving. But the serving is quite large because of the magic spaghetti squash. Always check points depending on your ingredients, as they could change.

Enjoy!

Michele: I'm going to try to add recipes to my blog. Just not sure exactly how to set it up. I'm kind of new at this blog thing. Anyway, it really is good and I hope you enjoy it!

OK, so I'm not crazy. I did comment once on the recipe, lol! I'm definitely putting the ingredients for this on my shopping list this weekend! I look forward to more recipes. Maybe I will post some of mine too.
