Light and Tasty Chicken -

Looking for something different this weekend - going to try this one

Hawaiian Baked Chicken

12 boneless skinless chicken thighs (4 ounces each)
2 cans (8 ounces each) unsweetened crushed pineapple, undrained
1/4 cup sherry or chicken broth
1/4 cup spicy brown mustard
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon paprika


Arrange chicken in a shallow baking dish coated with cooking spray. In a small bowl, combine the pineapple, sherry or broth, mustard, honey and butter; mix well. Spoon over chicken; sprinkle with paprika. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 35-45 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 180°. Yield: 6 servings.
Nutritional Analysis: One serving (2 chicken thighs with 1/3 cup sauce) equals 285 calories, 10 g fat (4 g saturated fat), 118 mg cholesterol, 288 mg sodium, 22 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 26 g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 3 lean meat, 1-1/2 fruit, 1 fat.

This came from the Light and Tasty website - works out to be 6 points for 2 chicken thighs and 1/3 cup of sauce. I'm thinking this will work out very good with some brown rice (4 pts) and a salad - so a pretty hefty dinner for just 10 pts !
