Baked Chicken with Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce

This, my friends, is delicious. Another winning recipe from Weight Watchers! I love the anti-breadcrumb coating - it is nice and crisp, and flavorful! It's  made with wheat germ!!! I never would have thought about using wheat germ in this way, but now I'm addicted to it! I want to add wheat germ to everything!
I also love the sauce here, its great! So much flavor is packed in here - sun dried tomatoes, roasted red peppers, and red wine vinegar! Delicious!

Preheat oven to 375.

Mix wheat germ, 1/2 tsp salt, and pepper in a shallow bowl.

Dip each piece of chicken in the egg whites, then in the wheat germ mixture to coat.

Place chicken pieces on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes.

While baking, pour water over sun dried tomatoes and allow to soak for 10 minutes.

Put tomatoes and water, roasted red peppers (drained), vinegar and remaining salt in a blender and blend until smooth.
