Taco Spiced Chicken

Over my Christmas Vacation I sat down and worked out the Weight Watcher points for some delicious looking new recipes. It always surprises me when I realize how many healthy changes you can make without compromising the flavors. This recipe is a perfect example. The original wanted you to coat the entire chicken breast in oil (lets be honest--- that sounds delicious) before grilling. Removing the oil altogether made this flavor packed recipe stand out even more. This chicken is absolutely diet friendly and your non-dieting families won't ever know the difference. 

Taco Spiced Chicken 

2 Tbsp. Taco seasoning
1 tsp. dried oregano
4 boneless chicken breasts
¼ cup BBQ sauce
1 Tbsp. chili sauce
½ tsp. cumin

In a bowl mix taco seasoning and oregano. Sprinkle over chicken breasts. Cook on grill for 10-15 minutes, turning occasionally. Cook until juices run clear. While chicken cooks, combine BBQ sauce, chili sauce and cumin in a microwave safe bowl. Cook on high for 30-60 seconds or until hot. Spread over cooked chicken and serve immediately. Makes 4 servings.
