Chicken Breast with Honey Balsamic Glaze

Monday, June 11, 2012

I absolutely love the Honey Balsamic Chicken from Macaroni Grill and this tastes very similar to it. The best part about this recipe is that it is a Weight Watchers recipe which means it is low in calories and fat! It doesn't skimp on flavor either. The chicken at the Macaroni Grill is served with angel hair pasta, but I ate the chicken with spaghetti squash, which is a great substitute for pasta. I mixed the spaghetti squash with a little bit of light butter and minced fresh garlic. Then I sprinkled a little bit of parmesan cheese and dried basil on top. It was a great Italian dish without all the carbs, calories, and fat. Yum!
