The chicken saga continues, and tonight we cracked open the P90X cookbook and scaled back a recipe for the two of us.  We have also started on a new portion control saga to only eat as much as our fist (chewed of course), with more vegetables and less meat.  We ended up with a relatively easy chicken recipe that was tasty.

Lemon-Garlic Chicken Breast with Coucous

2 chicken breasts
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp molasses
2 cloves of garlic chopped
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper

Combine lemon juice, molasses, garlic and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl and mix well.  Spray a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and put chicken in it.  Pour marinade over chicken, cover and refrigerate, turning occasionally for 1 hour.  Pre-heat oven to 425°F and bake for 45 minute or until done, basting occasionally.

It was pretty tasty, at least the skin was and it had enough flavor to permeate every bite of the chicken.  It was a little dry, but I slacked in my basting and will do that more frequently next time.
