PointsPlus® value 7*


Ingredients: 1/4 cup whole-wheat flour 10 oz. raw boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces 1/8 tsp. each salt and black pepper 1/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original) 1/4 cup fat-free chicken broth 1 tbsp. cornstarch 1 1/2 tbsp. low-sugar orange marmalade 1 1/2 tbsp. seasoned rice vinegar 1 tbsp. Splenda No Calorie Sweetener (granulated) 1 tbsp. reduced-sodium/lite soy sauce 1 tsp. chopped garlic 1 tsp. chopped ginger Dash red pepper flakes 2 tbsp. chopped scallions


Directions: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Place flour in a wide bowl.

Place chicken in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. Top with egg substitute and toss to coat.

One at a time, shake chicken pieces to remove excess egg and coat with flour. Evenly lay chicken pieces on the baking sheet.

Bake for 10 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.

In a medium bowl, whisk broth with cornstarch until cornstarch has dissolved. Add marmalade, vinegar, sweetener, and soy sauce, and thoroughly whisk.

Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Cook and stir garlic and ginger until slightly softened and fragrant, about 1 minute. Add broth mixture and red pepper flakes. Cook and stir until well mixed and slightly thickened, 1 to 2 minutes.

Remove skillet from heat, add chicken, and toss to coat. Serve topped with scallions and enjoy!


We have doubled (serving 4 people) and even tripled (serving six people) this recipe and it was just as delish as the single (serving 2 people) version!!
Last night, we paired it with a cup of brown rice so that the whole plate below was 12 PP ... and worth EVERY point. It was absolutely delicious!
