This is almost too good to be true. This meal is 0 points. ZERO!! Even if you add pita bread it is minimal points depending on the pita.
This will be my lunch for the next two days. When I have a lunch plan I’m much more likely to stay on plan. I’m sure a lot of you can relate to that.
I am not going to go through the trouble of getting my lunch ready for work the following day, then not eat it. Plus it saves money!! A lot of money!
If you go out to lunch every day you are spending a lot of money. Not to mention there is typically a lot of extra sodium in that food.
For the tzatziki sauce there is 1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil, but there are four servings so that is why it remains 0 points – if you only have one serving. Each serving is 1/4 cup of tzatziki sauce. Personally I think that is plenty of sauce for the meal.
If you want to wrap this up in pita bread it would still be a very low point meal. The pita bread I usually buy is only 2 points per piece.

Some things I used for this recipe:
Yield: 4 servings (1/4 cup tzatziki sauce per serving – 0 Freestyle points)

- 1/3 cucumber, shredded (seeds removed)
- 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic

- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon dried dill
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast
- Greek seasoning
- Red onion (optional)
- Additional chopped cucumber (optional)
- Tomatoes, chopped (optional)
In a small bowl mix the Greek yogurt, shredded cucumber, minced garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, dill, salt and pepper. Refrigerate for one hour.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Spray a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Sprinkle chicken breasts with the Greek seasoning.
Bake chicken for 20 minutes, or until fully cooked.
