Ahhh! Which ones made the list? This is so exciting!) Read on, people...

sodium, 26g carbs, 14g fiber, 0.5g sugars, 42.5g protein -- POINTS® value
They're simple, they're classic, and they go with everything. These guilt-free
chicken dunkers are kind of like a really great pair of shoes... that you can
2. So Low Mein w/Chicken

carbs, 6g fiber, 4g sugars, 18g protein -- POINTS® value 3*
The quintessential Chinese takeout swap. Why snarf down a ginormous
container of oily, carby noodles when you could fill up on our tasty and WAY
trimmed down version of the classic? We see no reason.

You may never look at breaded foods the same way again after you try our
fiber-fried, cheese-smothered, saucy Chicken Parm swap. Serve it with a
side of creamy Fettuccine Hungry Girlfredo and a salad, and you won't even
miss your local Italian eatery.
4. Planet Hungrywood Sweet & Cap'n Crunchy Chicken

carbs, 4g fiber, 10g sugars, 29g protein -- POINTS® value 4*
That's right, people. We took Cap'n Crunch cereal, crushed it up, and rolled
chicken in it. Thanks for the bright idea, Planet Hollywood. This swap is
5. H-O-T Hot Boneless Buffalo Wings
PER SERVING (5 wings): 175 calories, 1.5g fat, 1,153mg sodium, 14g carbs,
4g fiber, <1g sugars, 27g protein -- POINTS® value 3*
In another installment of "Rolling Chicken in Crazy Stuff," we made an
extremely delicious hot wing replacement using lean chicken breast, hot
sauce, and... barbeque-flavored potato chips! BTW, Popchips ROCK in this
6. Stuffed Chick Cordon Bleu

carbs, 0g fiber, 1g sugars, 40g protein -- POINTS® value 5*
Long day at work? Here's your dinner recipe. It has only three ingredients
and is insanely easy to make, AND you get to take out your aggression by
pounding a piece of chicken flat. Food + stress relief = HOORAY!

PER SERVING (2 taquitos): 197 calories, 2.5g fat, 594mg sodium, 22.5g
carbs, 3g fiber, 2g sugars, 20.5g protein -- POINTS® value 4*
We won't lie... We were a little skeptical about canned chicken before we
tried it out in this recipe. Now we're obsessed with the stuff and it has to
battle the tuna pouches for shelf space in our pantry. Food fight!

sodium, 14.5g carbs, 1g fiber, 10g sugars, 21g protein -- POINTS® value 3*
Ignore all those fatty pre-made chicken salads out there! Not only is this one

we add, it's BEAUTIFUL. Chopped cucumbers, sliced grapes, and little apple
