LOW-CAL MEAL FOR FOUR UNDER $10

The Biggest Loser host shares a healthy chicken and veggie recipe

ONLY 360 CALORIES

GREEN BEANS WITH CHICKEN AND CRUMBLED FETA CHEESE

• 1 lb. skinless, boneless chicken breasts (about 2 to 4 breasts)

• 1 tbsp. olive oil, plus some for drizzling

• 1 lemon

• 6 oz. fresh green beans (½ cup per person)

• ½ cup fresh feta cheese, crumbled

• 1 tomato, chopped

• ½ avocado (optional)

• Salt and pepper to taste

1. Broil chicken with a dash of olive oil and lemon slices on top for 4 to 5 minutes. Turn the chicken halfway through, and squeeze the lemon juice over the chicken. Cook for another 4 to 5 minutes.

2. When chicken is almost done broiling, drop green beans in boiling water and boil for 1 to 2 minutes. Strain green beans, taking them out while they’re still bright green and crispy. Toss them into a bowl with 1 tbsp. of olive oil, crumbled feta and chopped tomato. You want the green beans to still be warm when you do this to melt the cheese slightly. If desired, slice the ½ avocado and add it in.

3. When chicken is done, cut into pieces and toss in with green bean mixture. Serve.

Tune in to The Biggest Loser on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on NBC.
