    Here's the "Cola" Chicken recipe that's suprisingly tasty:

    Ingredients:

    4 skinless boneless chicken breasts
    1 cup catsup
    12 oz can diet cola

    Put chicken in non-stick skillet. Pour catsup and diet cola over the top. Bring to boil. Cover, reduce heat and cook for 45 minutes. Uncover, turn up the heat and continue to cook until the sauce becomes thick and adheres to the chicken.

    POINTS: 4

    I love dwlz.com. She has tons of great recipes as well as lots of helpful information, such as points for menu items at tons of restaraunts. Here are a couple of my favorites from that site so far:

    Baked French Toast With Apples

    Makes 4 servings

    Ingredients

    Toast
    2 eggs
    1/2 cup skim milk
    1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon firmly packed dark brown sugar
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    4 slices whole-wheat bread, cubed
    2 small apples, pared, cored and diced

    Topping
    3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    2 tablespoons firmly packed dark brown sugar
    2 teaspoons reduced-calorie tub margarine
    1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

    Preheat oven to 350o F. Spray two 5 x 3" loaf pans with nonstick cooking
    spray. To make toast, in medium bowl, lightly beat eggs. Add milk, brown sugar
    and cinnamon; stir to blend. Add bread cubes and apples, stirring gently; let
    stand until bread has absorbed all liquid, 2-3 minutes. To prepare topping, in
    small bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, margarine and cinnamon with fork. Divide
    the bread mixture evenly between the prepared loaf pans; sprinkle each evenly with
    topping. Bake 35-40 minutes, or until golden brown.
    Allow to cool slightly and serve warm.

    SERVING SIZE: 1/2 Loaf

    POINTS: 4.5

    SELECTIONS: 1/4 Fat, 1/2 Fruit, 1/2 Protein, 1 1/4 Breads,
    50 Optional Calories; 5 grams Fat, 3 grams Fiber.

    Italian Susage With Peppers



    Italian Sausage with Peppers

    Makes 4 Servings

    Ingredients

    2 tsp olive oil
    1 Bermuda onion, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
    1 red bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
    1 yellow bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
    1 green bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
    1 fennel bulb, trimmed and thinly sliced
    2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
    1 cup canned diced tomatoes
    Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
    1/2 pound cooked Italian pork sausage (hot, sweet, or a combination)
    2 cups penne pasta
    1/4 cup chopped basil
    2 tbsp chopped flat-leaf parsley

    In a large non-stick skillet, heat the oil. Sauté the onion, bell peppers, and
    fennel until the vegetables turn golden, 8-10 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté
    1-2 minutes longer. Stir in the tomato, salt, and pepper. Reduce the heat
    and simmer, stirring occasionally. Add the sausage; simmer covered, stirring
    occasionally, until the flavors are blended, about 20 minutes. If the sauce
    becomes too dry, add 1-2 tablespoons of water. Meanwhile, cook the penne
    according to directions; drain. Add the basil, parsley, and penne to the
    sausage mixture; toss to combine.

    POINTS: 9

    Kind of high points, but it's really filling and delicious. I use Barilla Plus penne, which might help a bit. It's a lot of peppers too, so I only use about 2/3 of each. Each serving is fairly large, so you could probably cut it in half to reduce points and add a salad or something.
