Dijon Chicken with Corn Salsa

I picked up a nice weight watchers cookbook at Goodwill recently and decided to give one of the recipes a try. It was pretty simple and it turned out having a lot of really good flavor. I really need to go through my cookbooks, they are starting to pile up everywhere, but I love them.

recipe from weight watchers
The recipe is simple as I said, and pretty darn low in calories.

You will need some chicken, corn, bell pepper, tomato, cucumber (look at the size of that thing!), OJ, red wine vinegar, green chiles, cumin, chili powder, parsley and dijon mustard. If you want you can use some cilantro. I do not want.

you have been CHOPPED!
Chop up the veggies.

getting together
Mix them up with the corn, parsley, OJ, vinegar, cumin, chiles, chili powder and some salt and pepper. My husband was watching me assemble this and seemed really interested until I said it was going with some chicken. He ended up finishing the remaining salsa with chips later.

It really does look tempting, even in a photo!

chicken cut
Preheat your grill or broiler. Chop up your chicken into thin strips.

Smear it with the dijon.

cooked chicken
Broil or grill it for 3-4 minutes on each side, and you are ready to eat!

Dijon Chicken with Corn Salsa
This was super tasty, and so simple. I served it with some tortilla chips, which of course add fat and calories, but I can't have salsa without chips.


  1. What a colorful plate of food and I bet it tastes delicious!

  2. Um, I want cilantro! :D I love any kind of mustard - my husband even took me to the mustard museum in Wisconsin!!

  3. Let's not talk about cookbooks taking over your life. :P That salsa sounds awesome! Bet it pairs perfectly with the chicken.
