Chicken is a great, versatile meat because itÔÇÖs familiar, easy to prepare and everyone likes it.

ItÔÇÖs easy to get into a rut with chicken, making the same thing every time. With VitaClay, itÔÇÖs easy to mix up your weekly routine and still use the same basic ingredients to create a fresh twist on an old classic. No one will ever get bored with that!

This recipe was adapted from Weight Watchers, so we know that it has built-in portion control and a healthy bent, while still being delicious and satisfying. I love using dark meat, so if breast isnÔÇÖt your cup of tea, mix it up--just be aware that calorie and nutrition information will change slightly.

Browning the chicken in a pan before adding it to Vitaclay also adds rich color and flavor.
