Looking for guilt-free goodies you can throw together in a jiffy? These tasty trios are PERFECT. Three ingredients, people. Count 'em...
Chicken Breast + BBQ Sauce + Lettuce = BBCute Chick in a Lettuce Bun
PER SERVING (entire "recipe"): 209 calories, 2g fat, 399mg sodium, 12.5g carbs, <0.5g fiber, 10g sugars, 33g protein -- PointsPlus® value 5*
Here's a great quick 'n easy chicken dish. Locate your favorite BBQ sauce, and then coat a raw 5-oz. boneless, skinless, lean chicken breast cutlet with a tablespoon of that sauce. Bring a grill or grill pan sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat, and grill your saucy chicken until cooked through (about 4 minutes per side). Let it cool for a few, and then place it on a large sturdy leaf of iceberg or butter lettuce. Top the chicken with another tablespoon of sauce, and wrap the lettuce around it (a la In-N-Out's Protein Style burger). Eat!
Broccoli Cole Slaw + Garbanzo Beans + Fat-Free Italian Dressing = Easy-Beany Italian Slaw
PER SERVING (1 cup, 1/5th of "recipe"): 105 calories, 1g fat, 395mg sodium, 19g carbs, 6.5g fiber, 4g sugars, 5.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2*
Need a SUPER-SIMPLE side salad? Just combine a 12-oz. bag of broccoli slaw with a 15.5-oz. can's worth of drained, rinsed garbanzo beans (a.k.a. chickpeas). Add 1/3 cup of dressing and stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, and you're done. No need to purchase soggy slaw at a deli counter, empty it into a bowl, and pass it off as homemade...

PER SERVING (entire drink): 40 calories, 0g fat, 76mg sodium, 8g carbs, 0.5g fiber, 7g sugars, 0g protein -- PointsPlus® value 1*
Yummy low-cal punch in a FLASH!!! Dissolve half a two-serving packet of Crystal Light into a cup of icy-cold club soda. Add 1/4 cup of chilled, juice-packed pineapple chunks. Then give the whole thing a stir and slurp away! It's a bubbly spin on something ordinary, and you will LOVE it. Pssst... If you want to make it even MORE fun, freeze the pineapple chunks first!
