Fried chicken

Over the last year, we've gone down to Springfield to Kicks several times. They used to have an all you eat buffet with some really tasty fried chicken. Fortunately, for my weight loss, they have done away with the buffet and went to a pizza place with a salad bar. We went down over the weekend and my mom and the kids had pizza and cheese sticks and I had salad bar. But going down there really made me want fried chicken. So I got on Hungry Girl and found her Faux Fried Chicken recipe because all of her stuff is sensible points (and she includes point values on the recipes) and I made this tonight for dinner.

I don't use garlic salt so I subbed garlic powder and salt and it could have used a little more salt but really? Super good and only 4 points per serving (6oz raw chicken). I will be making this again.

I got HG's 200 recipes under 200 calories for Christmas. I've made two things. 1) The mini banana pancakes were pretty good, particularly, if you like bananas (I liked that the recipes are all for pretty much single servings too). 2) The cinnamon rolls sucked. I was saddened by this. Mostly because they only took like 20 minutes to make from start to finish -- since the Cooking Light ones took 2 hours to get them in the freaking oven, I was hoping to find a cheap fix. But patience is apparently a virtue when it comes to cinnamon rolls.

That and I've noticed there are certain things I can "cheat" on (i.e. eat reduced fat/calorie versions of and I don't care) and then there are other things where my body takes a bite (like the cinnamon roll) and I throw away the whole pan because no one should waste their day's calories on something so mediocre.

I'm super disappointed to hear that about the cinnamon rolls :( I got 200 Under 200 from the library and that is one of the recipes I wrote down and looking good.

I found Hungry Girl a long time ago, and was instantly impressed. It's crazy the things Fiber One can work for!
