To make a simple rub for a low-calorie baked chicken dinner, the cook adds a tablespoon of lemon pepper, a teaspoon of onion powder and a teaspoon of garlic salt into a small bowl and mixes it well. He pats dry the chicken breasts and rubs them lightly with olive oil and then the seasoning mixture. The cook places the chicken in a pan and bakes it at 350 F for 35 to 40 minutes, until juices run clear, the chicken is no longer pink inside and the meat is a nice golden brown.

While the chicken is baking, the cook fills a steamer pot with 2 cups of water and a packet of Italian dressing. He places frozen mixed vegetables, such as a California blend, into the steamer basket and steams it until the vegetables are slightly tender. Finally, the cook removes the chicken from the oven and serves it with the steamed vegetables. The meal can also be served with brown or wild rice as directed on the box.
