    This actually adds up to 4 points using the points+ system.  I just joined WW and this sounded like the perfect thing for our Mothers day picnic!  Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Is this Points+ or the old point value?

  3. Truly appreciate your website. It’s extremely helpful!!

    If you might have any idea of the nutrition information I would love to hear it. I'm doing a project for home ec. and I need the nutritional information. My recipe is quite close to this so if possible could you provide it for me? PLS!? Thabks, Cazza.

    • Unfortunately, I don't have the nutritional stats for this weight watchers recipe, as it was one that was passed along to me with only the points value. I'll dig around though, and if I can find it, I'll post it. :)

  5. Hello. I am a weight watchers members and I am a beginner cook. I am basically learning how to cook now at the age of 30. I have a question, how do i know how much is 3/4 pound (uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast)? Exactly how many chicken breast does that equal to and could I use the Perdue Individual wrap chicken breast for this recipe? Hope to hear from you soon.

    -Thanks in Advance

    • You can use any kind of skinless, boneless chicken you want for the recipe! Just check the nutritional stats of the brands because some calorie counts are a bit lower than others. As for the weight of the chicken, the most accurate way is to use a kitchen scale. You can get them almost anywhere – Target, Walmart, Williams & Sonoma, and grocery stores. But you can also estimate the weight per chicken breast, based on how many chicken breasts are in the package vs. the weight of the entire package. For example, if the weight of your package of chicken is 1lb, and there are 4 chicken breasts in the package, them the avg weight per breast is 4oz. Hope that helps!

  6. Hi Julie, these items are available at local grocery stores here. I live in Los Angeles, but I'm pretty sure these are common at all grocery stores in the states. If your local grocery stores don't carry them, you could try ordering online. Good luck!

    Hello,

    WHere do you buy your fat free tortillas and Sara Lee Delightful bread.

    I live in canada so it probably is not available here.

    Thanks for your help.
