Holy Yummy Town

I stumbled upon a fantabulous new website for yummy, healthy recipes.  It's called Skinny Taste and the lady who writes it follows Weight Watchers which is totally awesome for me because I don't have to sit around inputing recipes into the website to figure out points!  Yay!  A few nights ago we tried our first recipe from the site and it was so phenomenal that we'll definitely be trying more!

Here is the exact recipe from Skinny Taste:

Grilled Chicken with Spinach and Melted Mozzarella

 Servings: 6 • S Size: 1 cutlet, spinach, cheese • Old Points: 4 pts • Points+: 4 pts
Calories: 153.3 • Fat: 4.2 g • Protein: 24.5 g • Carb: 4.0 g • Fiber: 1.3 g • Sugar: .7 g

24 oz (3 large) chicken breasts sliced in half lengthwise to make 6 cutlets
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic, crushed
10 oz frozen spinach, drained
3 oz shredded part skim mozzarella
1 roasted red pepper, sliced in strips
olive oil spray

Preheat oven to 400°. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Lightly spray a grill with oilor grill outside on a gas grill.

Cook chicken on the grill until no longer pink, careful not to overcook or you'll have dry chicken.

Meanwhile, heat a sauté pan on medium heat. Add oil and garlic, sauté a few seconds, add spinach, salt and pepper. Cook a few minutes until heated through.

When chicken is done, lay on a baking sheet lined with foil or parchment for easy clean-up. Divide spinach evenly between the 6 pieces and place on top. Top each with half oz mozzarella, then slices of roasted pepper and bake until melted, about 6-8 minutes.

I roasted my own red pepper!  I was so proud of me!

Once the pepper was charred, I placed it in a covered bowl to cool.  The steam that is created will help make peeling the skin off the pepper much, much easier!!

Pepper after peeling.

Garlic and olive oil.

Spinach sauteed with garlic and olive oil.

Ready to go!

So yummy!!
I am super excited about the next skinnied down recipe...
