Easy Low Fat Greek-Style Baked Chicken Recipe
By Rebecca Garcia
Even if you're dieting, meals don't have to be boring, bland and unappetizing. Low
calorie or low fat meals can be just as tasty and enjoyable as regular meals.
When cooking low fat meals, nothing can be healthier than chicken breast meat, which
is high in protein with only 124 calories per serving.
However, the problem is, chicken breast meat (especially boneless and skinless) can
be dry, tough and stringy when not cooked properly. The trick to moist tender flavorful
chicken breast is to cook it as quickly as possibly or to brine it before cooking.
To brine, place chicken breasts in a salt and water solution (3 tablespoons salt
dissolved in 4 cups water), cover and refrigerate for about 1 hour. When ready to
cook, remove chicken breast from the brine, rinse under cold running water, and cook.
Today's low fat recipe features baked skinless chicken breasts with a classic cheesy
herb filling that is both tasty and satisfying. It’s healthy and very very easy!
