Weight Friendly Chicken

I'm a fan of the chicken, and when you tell me it's healthy...and I try it and it's actually delicious too....sign me up.  So....if you are doing the New Year New You thing but want to eat more than carrots and lettuce....try this guy.  If you are counting...it's 4 Points Plus.  
Oven-Fried Paprika Chicken
Ingredients:  2 sprays cooking spray, 1/2 c. plain fat-free yogurt, 1 T sweet paprika (divided), 15 saltine crackers (crushed into crumbs, 1 t. salt, 1/4 t.  black pepper, 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast (4 4 oz pieces), 1 T parsley, 1/2 med lemon (cut into wedges-I skipped this)
Instructions:  Preheat boiler and coat baking sheet with cooking spray.  Place yogurt and 1 t. paprika in small shallow bow.  In a second shallow bowl combine cracker crumbs, salt, pepper and remaining 2 t. paprika.  Stir to combine.  Place chicken in yogurt mix and turn to coat.  Place coated chicken in cracker mix and turn to coat-press lightly to make crumbs stick.  Place coated chicken on prepared baking sheet and lightly spray top of chicken with cooking spray.  Broil 3-4 inches from heat source until golden brown and cooked through.  Flip once about 4-5 minutes per side.  Serve by sprinkling with parsley and garnish with lemon wedges.
