Digsy’s Dinner June 18, 2009

Time for another recipe!

This one I stole copied from The Biggest Loser original cookbook and it’s a favourite.  I make it at least once a week, more if I’m fighting a craving for junk food.  Because this meal?  Tastes like junk food, even though it’s pretty healthy and low-cal.

Chicken Pileups

Combine 1 tsp of Mexican seasoning (I use reduced-salt taco seasoning) with 1/2 a tsp of garlic powder.  Roll a 4 oz boneless skinless chicken breast in the spice mixture and set aside to let the flavour seep in.

Heat GF (or any other) grill to high heat and grill one 6 1/2 inch whole wheat pita for two minutes.  Once the pita has warmed/grilled, put chicken breast on grill and cook 7 minutes if you’re using a GF grill, otherwise until juices run clear.

Meanwhile, top the grilled pita with 2 TBSPs of hummus, thin slices of red pepper, thin pieces of red onion and 2 TBSPs of black beans.

Once chicken is cooked, remove from grill and cut into small pieces.  Place chicken on pita (it should be getting pretty piled-up by now).  Top with some salsa and 2 TBSPs of grated low-fat cheese.  Bake in a 425 degree oven for 7 minutes and then slice into four wedges using a pizza cutter.

Yields: 1 Serving

WW Points: 7 points plus points for additional toppings (see below)

Seriously.  This is really, really good.  It drips and drops everywhere, the way good junk food should, it’s full of fibre and lean protein and it really fills you up.  I usually will top this with some light sour cream when it comes out of the oven, cause I love sour cream but you could also use guacamole like one of my friends does, or save some calories and skip the extra toppings.
