Weight Watchers Retro Recipes: Shake and Bake Chicken, Slaw and Veggie Dip








Shake-in-the Bag Chicken

Serves 4 PPV per serving: 6 (1 breast half)

  • 2/3 cup cornflake crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dark brown sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¾ tsp onion powder
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 4 bone in chicken breast halves, skinned (about 2 pounds)

Preheat oven to 400. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Combine the cornflake crumbs, flour, paprika, sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and cumin in large zip close plastic bag.

Shake the bag to evenly coat the chicken. Repeat with the remaining chicken pieces; discard any remaining coating mixture.

Bake until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the each breast registers 165 degrees, 35-40 minutes.



Serves 4 PPV: 2 (1 ½ cups)

  • 1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon reduced fat mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons white wine or apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons plain fat-free yogurt

  • ½ teaspoon celery seeds
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 small (1-pound) green cabbage, shredded into 4 cups
  • 2 carrots, peeled and grated
  • 1 small onion, minced (optional)

Whisk together mayo, vinegar, and yogurt, oil, mustard, sugar, celery seeds, salt and pepper in a large non-reactive bowl. 

Add the cabbage, carrots and onion, if using, to the bowl; toss to coat evenly. 

Serve at once, or cover and refrigerate up to 3 hours (add the onion just before serving).

  • 1 beef bouillon cube

Heat a large non–stick skillet over medium heat. 

Swirl in the oil, and then add the onion. Cover and cook stirring occasionally until softened, about 5 minutes. 

Reduce the heat to medium-low, uncover and cook, stirring frequently until onion is very soft and golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Spoon the onion onto a plate. 

Add the water to a skillet and crumble the bouillon cube, stirring until the cube dissolves. Let the onion and broth stand until cool about 20 minutes.

Stir together the onion, broth, yogurt, mayo, lemon juice, and salt in medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, at least 2 hours or up to 3 days
