Weight Watchin' Wednesday: Baked Chicken

Beren and I may be going out to see our friend's band tonight and since they start early (6:30 pm) it's going to be a quick & simple dinner tonight. I'll be serving this with leftover egg noodles for him, "faux" mashed potatoes for me, and some type of fresh veggies of course.
