I remember that a while back, Paula Deen once made this Sweet Bacon Wrapped Chicken recipe, and I tucked it away in the back of my mind as something I needed to experiment with. I made a couple healthier changes, and the recipe turned out fantastic. It was so quick and easy to prepare, and it requires just a handful of ingredients – all of which you probably have on hand at any given time. So it’s the perfect Weight Watchers dinner recipe for a busy weeknight. The chicken came out tender and juicy, and the chili sugar coating was absolutely perfect. Next time I make this, I think I may use regular bacon instead of the turkey. It will cost me an extra Point or two, but I think that this would be sensational with real bacon. Though the turkey bacon does the trick just fine if you want to keep it low calorie. Also, these Sweet Bacon Wrapped Chicken Breasts would work really well as appetizer or for a Weight Watchers Super Bowl Recipe…just cut the chicken into bite size pieces and then slice the bacon into thirds, lengthwise. This low calorie chicken recipe is definitely a keeper. Enjoy!
Nothing says summer like barbecuing on the grill, and I will pretty much eat anything that’s been coated with a tasty BBQ sauce and cooked over an open flame! One of my all time favorite Weight Watchers Grilling Recipes involves barbecuing slices of sweet potatoes….YUM!

This is a quick and easy summer recipe that makes the perfect low calorie side dish to just about any meal. So if you are busting out the grill anytime soon, add this Barbecued Sweet Potatoes Recipe to your list. Each satisfying serving is just 2 Points +!
