Get ready for a delicious, albeit slightly unusual, way to fix chicken!  I wouldn’t have expected fried onions, BBQ sauce, and parmesan cheese to be a good mix, but I’m glad I tried it because it was awesome!  I also wouldn’t have thought a chicken breast covered in french fried onions would be Weight Watchers approved, but it is!

This chicken is packed with flavor.  The BBQ sauce gives it a tanginess while the onions make it nice and crunchy.  On the inside, the chicken is just full of juicy goodness.  The combination of various textures and flavors really goes well together in this dish.  This is one Weight Watchers recipe that certainly doesn’t taste like healthy, bland meal.  You’d never even know that it’s low-cal just by taste!

Crunchy Onion BBQ Chicken
