Overnight Oats

I got this recipe from a wonderful girl on the weight watchers message boards (codename Glittergirl).

This is a very easy and very filling breakfast. With 9g of protein you can't go wrong. And when warmed up it tastes just like apple pie and who doesn't enjoy eating apple pie for breakfast??

1/2 cup old fashioned oats (NOT instant)
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup fat free vanilla yogurt

1. Mix together and place in fridge overnight.
2. Eat cold or warm in microwave for 45 seconds - 1 minute.

**For other variations you can sub frozen berries for the applesauce and leave out the spices. Or skip the applesauce and add a little bit of maple syrup and brown sugar. The options are endless.

Paprika Chicken with Sour Cream Gravy

I modified this from a Campbell's recipe I found. The original recipe was over 500 calories for one serving because they wanted you to coat the chicken in flour and fry it in butter. This recipe doesn't need that at all and I managed to cut it down to 170 calories per serving. So flavorful too.

6 small chicken breasts (about 24 ounces total)
1 can 98% fat free cream of chicken soup
8 ounces fat free sour cream
seasoning salt
ground pepper

1. Sprinkle each side of the chicken with sesoning salt, pepper, and paprika.
2. Heat a non stick skillet over medium high heat and spray liberally with cooking spray.
3. Cook then chicken for about 6-8 minutes or until brown on each side.
4. Meanwhile mix together the soup and sour cream.
5. When chicken is brown, pour the soup mixture on top, reduce heat to medium, cover and cook for 10-15 minutes or until chicken is done.

Delicious served with long grain and wild rice or my cauliflower mashed potato recipe which can be found here: http://culinarycreationsbyjill.blogspot.com/2009/10/cauliflower-mashed-potatoes.html

Makes 6 servings.
