Have you ever looked at what is in foods these days? Have you ever wondered why life has gotten so crazy that we all rely on processed "quick" foods and fast foods? Well I have had my eyes opened recently when we started to realize our oldest child could be ADD. I decided to clean up our diets and turn out lives around. I am a woman, married to a wonderful man who supports everything I do. We have 3 wonderful children who keep us on our toes and every day when I pick them up from school the first things out of their mouths is "mommy what's for dinner" so here it is...

Sticky Sesame Chicken & Fried Brown Rice

There is nothing better than sweet yummy chicken (or as my daughter called it tonight sweet, yummy sticky chicken).  I served it with a homemade fried rice and roasted asparagus...This whole meal was a total of 11 points.

Sticky Sesame Chicken

2 lbs chicken tenderloins (or chicken breast)
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce (I used soy vay)
1/4 cup bbq sauce (I used Trader Joe's)
2.5 tbsp honey

2) Place chicken in a bowl.  Add teriyaki sauce, bbq sauce & honey and mix well. 
3) Place chicken tenderloins on baking sheet with tongs.
4) Bake for 25 minutes.
5) Remove from oven and turn over...baste with more sauce if you like and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

VERDICT: the 1st words out of the kids mouths was "oh boy fried rice"! They loved it and I served it with some roasted asparagus that I just tossed with some olive oil and Morton's Seasoning Salt and threw them in on another rack with the chicken...I want to try the check next time with either chicken legs or drumettes...and lots of napkins
