Dinner on a Dime: Garlic-Ginger Chicken

 

gingergarlic
This is a great way to wake up your taste buds after all that heavy holiday food and it is easy on the waistline.  It also gives same ol’ chicken a kick!!
Garlic-Ginger Chicken
2 Tablespoons cilantro, finely minced
3 Tablespoons rice vinegar
3 Tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon freshly minced ginger
2 garlic cloves, minced
4 chicken breasts
2 potatoes, cubed
Paprika

Combine cilantro, vinegar, soy sauce, ginger and garlic in a large Ziploc bag. Add the chicken and refrigerate 30 minutes- 8 hours.

When ready to cook, add the potatoes to the bag and toss to coat. Pour entire contents of bag into a large baking dish. Season with salt, pepper and paprika. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 20-30 minutes until the chicken is cooked and the potatoes are tender.

Note: this also makes a great marinade if you want to leave out the potatoes and grill the chicken.
Another note: For those health nuts out there this recipe is only 5 Weight Watcher points per serving and has approximately 250 calories. This includes the chicken, potatoes and sauce.
