Daphne Oz's Low-Point Weight Watchers' Chicken Skillet Dinner Looks Incredible

  Daphne Oz's Low-Point Weight Watchers' Chicken Skillet Dinner Looks Incredible Chicken breasts *can* be juicy and tender if you follow her pro tips. To make it yourself, transfer your chicken to a large zip-top bag, press the air out and seal it closed, then grab a sturdy skillet. "Think about whatever annoying circumstance you had in your life recently. Channel that; let it flow through you and take it out on your chicken breast," Oz says, as she starts to pound the chicken, from the center of the piece working her way out to ensure the edges don't get "lacy" or too thin.

Souvlaki is a classic Greek street food that would most commonly be found using lamb, but chicken isn’t uncommon either. Essentially, souvlaki is skewered, grilled, and tender pieces of meat that can be eaten straight off the skewer as is, or served with a tzatziki sauce. You’ll also see it commonly served in a pita with veggies as well. However you serve it, it's easy and delicious when done right.
