Cha-Cha Cherry BBQ Chicken

Woohoo, yay for teaching and having the summer off.  Thank you Hungry Girl for the recipe!
1/2 of recipe (about 1 cup): 294 calories, 2g fat, 874mg sodium, 33.5g carbs, 1.5g fiber, 24.5g sugars, 34g protein 

7 WW Points Plus per serving

10 ounces raw boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper
1 cup slice onion (used Vidalia)
½ cup frozen unsweetened pitted dark sweet cherries, thawed, roughly chopped
½ cup BBQ sauce with 45 calories or less per 2-tablespoon serving

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Lay a large piece of heavy-duty foil on a baking sheet and spray with non-stick spray

Season chicken with salt and pepper.  Distribute onto the center of the foil and top with onion.

In a medium bowl, mix chopped cherries with BBQ sauce.  Pour mixture over the onion and chicken.  Cover with another large piece of foil.

Fold together and seal all four pieces, forming a well-sealed packet.  Bake for 25 minutes, or until chicken is cook thoroughly (one hour for us).

Cut packet to release steam before opening entirely.  Eat up.

*I added whole grain rice to the meal (1/2 cup) for an extra 2.5 WW points.
