Cool Dinner for Wed May 10th/06

tonight I am attempting a low cal weight watchers version of fried chicken, that coincidentally is made in the oven.
Southern Oven "Fried" Chicken
1/2 cup fat free buttermilk
1/2 cup cornflakes, crushed
3 tbsp all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
2 pounds chicken parts, skinned (this is the part that breaks my heart!)
4 tsp canola oil

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F; spray a large baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
2. Pour the buttermilk into a large shallow bowl. On a sheet of wax paper, combine the cornflake crumbs, flour, salt, and pepper. Dip the chicken in buttermilk, then dredge in the cornflake mixture, coating properly. Place the chicken on the baking sheet; drizzle with the oil. Bake 30 min, then turn and bake 15-20 min, until cooked through.

It's in my new weight watchers cookbook and is supposed to make 4 servings with 5pts per serving. prob serve with a nice salad and a baked potatoe. Me and hubby use most of our points at night so we can do things like this...

I'm continuing to experiment with the correct proportions for a catastrophically fatty Three Cheese Grilled Cheese Sandwich.

It's really just a grilled cheese using stone ground bread and a center of swiss cheese (adhesive), gorganzola and bucheron.

It's only okay...the cheese isn't done justice by the bread and the texture is all wrong. But I'll find a way to make it better...soon.

We had a roasted cross rib roast that turned out so good - baked potatoes, sauteed mushrooms, steamed broccoli and ice cream and fudge for dessert.

this sounds so good, do you go into any special web sites to get these recipes? Also, how did you get the points you are supposed to be one as opposed to anyone else's number of points? does that make sense?

I have a book that tells me how many points I am supposed to have based on the fact that I'm a woman, and I'm above a certain weight. The points are based on calories/50 + fat/12 - fibre to a maximum of 4 = points value. I have everything on an ebook including a points list. That particular website I pulled out of my weight watchers cookbook, which I'm having a blast with right now... made some really good pork tenderloin the other night... tonight we'll try another one, will prob post the recipe to that too lol. If you need any info feel free to ask, I have it all saved to my computer and can send it.
