  1. Hello, I love the recipes you share! It’s so convenient seeing these posted on Facebook with the points plus values figured already. I was just a little confused by this one. 2lbs of chicken divided into 6 fillets would make each fillet over 5 ounces. I have never heard of having 5 ounces of chicken for 4 points; in my experience it is usually 1 point per ounce at the lowest. How did this turn out to be only 4 points for over 5 ounces?

    • LaaLoosh says:

      I think it will depend on the brand of chicken you use, as nutritional stats can vary per brand. The chicken that I use is Trader Joe’s Organic Chicken Breasts. According to the package, each 4oz serving has 120 calories; 1.5g fat, 0g carbohydrates; 26g protein, and 0g fiber. So, at a total of 32 oz, divided into 6 servings, that makes each of the 6 fillets (which are 5.3oz each) 160 calories; 2g fat; 0g carbohydrates; 34.5g protein; 0g fiber. That comes out to 4 Points +. The honey Dijon sauce nutritional info doesn’t end up affecting the Points Plus value, so each serving is just 4 Points +. Hope that helps to clarify!

  2. Could you make this in the crockpot as well??? :)))

    I have used recipes from laaloosh for over a year. I have saved favorites in my recipe box on the laaloosh site. Now that ziplist is on the site I can’t find my saved recipes. Very frustrated! This has taken a lot of time. I am very unhappy. Sincerely, Anne Mosher
