Pineapple Chicken Stir Fry with Bell Peppers – 3 Points +
This Pineapple Chicken Stir Fry with Bell Peppers is one of my favorite Weight Watchers recipes to make when I’m craving sweet, spicy and tangy! It’s also a great way to get in a lot of servings of fruit and vegetables. It’s colorful, fresh, and very satisfying. Each serving has just 3 Points + each, making it a great idea for a healthy Weight Watchers dinner recipe. This is also a dish I like to make on days where I feel the need to eat a LOT. Because it’s such a low calorie, healthy recipe, I can really go overboard with this and not feel an ounce of guilt. There are even days where I’ve made my Pineapple Chicken Stir Fry Recipe and have eaten the whole thing! Yes, that’s right…all 4 servings. I LOVE it. Also, I’m obsessed with Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, so I use a lot of it in my version, but you can use as much or as little as you like. This pineapple chicken recipe is a much healthier alternative to sweet and sour chicken, so if you have a craving for some fast food sweet and sour chicken from your favorite Chinese restaurant, try this instead!
