{Almond Chicken}

Don't forget everything at Chicy Creations is 45% off through the end of the weekend. There are some insanely awesome deals to be found in the shop right now!

One of the Win, Lose or Blog contestants, Bailey, posted this kraft recipe for Almond Chicken Dijon a few weeks ago and I love it!

The original recipe calculates at 200 calories, I made a few minor adjustment to add one of those super food boosts, without adding extra calories.

Here's how I make mine:

1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
2 tablespoons light mayo with olive oil
2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
4 teaspoons ground flax seed
4 teaspoons chopped almonds

Heat oven to 375. Mix mayo, mustard and flax in a small bowl, evenly divide and spread over chicken breast. Sprinkle each chicken breast with one tablespoon of chopped almonds. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

This is SO easy and so tasty.

One chicken breast works out to be 200 calories with 26g protein! Serve this up with some veggies and a side salad and you have a low fat, low cal, filling dinner packed with protein. I've made this several times now and we all love it! You can cut out a few calories by leaving out the flax seed, but I've been trying to sneak some in our diet here and there and I think it's worth it.

It's the last week of the Win, Lose, or Blog competition! These last 7 weeks have flown by. I've lost 20 lbs so far and I'm loving the new energy I have and the lifestyle changes I've made. Feel free to check in at Win, Lose, or Blog next week to see the final results!
