Weight Watchers Ginger Lime Chicken ~Salad~

I started Weight Watchers... again... and found this amazing recipe in one of the hand outs.  It's easy, super flavorful and delicious. I will definitely add it to my menu again. I turned our leftovers into a salad for lunch the next day and it was amazing.

Ginger Lime Chicken (5 points per serving)

1/4 c. low sodium soy sauce
3 Tbsp. fresh squeezed lime juice
2 tsp. minced lime zest
2 Tbsp. minced ginger root
2 medium minced garlic cloves 
1 Tbsp. honey
1 Tbsp. chili oil
1/4 c. chopped cilantro divided
4 4oz chicken breasts
2 Tbsp. minced scallions 

 (directions were adapted by me, to follow the WW directions exactly click on the red link below.)

I large glass bowl mix together soy sauce, lime juice, lime zest, ginger, garlic, honey, oil, and 2 tablespoons of cilantro: mix well. Add chicken to the bowl, tossing to coat and allow to marinate (20 min-4 hours depending on how well you plan ahead.) Preheat broiler to high. transfer chicken and marinade to a flameproof baking dish. Broil chicken 4-6 minutes; flip and broil another 4-6 minutes. 

Remove chicken from pan (discard marinade) and sprinkle with chopped cilantro and minced scallion.



Serve diced with your choice of lettuce, diced mango, veggies (I used carrots, radishes, cucumber)  scallions, cilantro, boiled egg and chow mien noodles. (noodles not in picture... they were an after thought!)   Top with white balsamic vinegar. 

cold leftovers... turned into...

delish filling salad.

For any point counters out there..... I figured my salad at 8 points for 3 oz chicken, 1 boiled egg and 1/4 c. Chow Mien noodles.  I added the egg only because I had a super low point, crazy, busy morning breakfast (a string cheese!) so I was starved.
