I love quick and simple meals that look beautiful and taste great. I also love meals that make use of foods that you can make ahead of time. Take the chicken breast in this pita, for example. You can grill a couple of extra chicken breasts one night and have lunch for the next couple of days. Or, just use leftover chopped chicken from a roasted chicken. It tastes the same, but make the meal that much quicker to prepare. Tzatziki sauce is a wonderful light and refreshing sauce that goes well on salads and in wraps. It’s easy to make ahead of time, and it’ll keep for a few days in the refrigerator. These Greek Chicken Pitas are wonderful for a weekday lunch or a quick supper. And they’re so tasty and beautiful – it’s a no brainer for your next meal.

Another super easy recipe I want to share today that not only tastes incredible, but requires such little effort. This Spanish Chicken and Potato Roast Recipe is all done in one pot (yay for easy clean-up!). The ingredients are combined in a large baking dish, and then slow roasted in the oven, delivering one heck of a tasty dinner. The potatoes soak up the juices released by the chicken which makes them heavenly moist and tender. And the simple seasonings are all it takes for a fantastic flavor. This hearty, satisfying Spanish Chicken and Potato Roast Recipe will definitely leave you feeling satisfied! Serve with a light salad or steamed veggies for a complete meal.
By now you’ve probably realized that I love to have leftover roast chicken to use in a variety of recipes. Chicken enchiladas are a wonderful dish. They’re easy and delicious, and they’re perfect to stick in the freezer for later. My problem is that I prefer green enchilada sauce and store bought green enchilada sauce typically has wheat in it. So, I had to improvise. What I ended up with was this truly delicious green enchilada sauce that uses green tomatillos and is really easy to make. I typically used canned tomatillos, because I can keep a couple of cans on hand instead of having to plan ahead and use fresh. I’ll serve my enchiladas with chopped lettuce, fresh tomatoes and cucumbers and salsa. For those not watching points (or calories), add a little sour cream or shredded cheese to the top. You won’t use all of the sauce in the pan, so save some to heat up and spoon over the whole thing. I prefer my sauce mild, so I don’t add more than 1 jalapeno and often I’ll substitute a can of mild green chilies in place of it. If you like hot sauce, just add more jalapeno peppers.

Stuffed peppers were always a staple in my house, growing up. My mom usually made them once every other week, and I can still remember the taste of that delicious beef and rice filling! My healthier version consists of a quinoa and ground chicken filling. It’s mixed with a tangy tomato sauce, seasoned with Italian herbs and topped with a bit of mozzarella cheese. It’s delicious, filling, and just 7 Points + for 2 stuffed pepper halves! And I have to say, it is SOOOOO good. Even better than the one my mom makes — but please don’t tell her that. :) My kids love it too which is a HUGE plus. I also love how quick and easy this is to prepare, so it’s great for a busy weeknight dinner. I usually pair this with some fresh roasted vegetables and or a salad for a complete meal.
When I’m pressed for time during the week, this Chicken and Spinach Sauté Recipe is a life saver. It requires minimal prep and cook time, yet tastes incredibly delicious and is quite healthy. My kids love it too, which is a huge plus. I simply get the chicken into the marinade before I leave to go pickup my kids from school, then come and home and toss it in the skillet for dinner. Easy peasy. The only problem is that it’s so good, there are never any leftovers! Simple, delicious, and satisfying, this Weight Watchers Chicken Recipe is a must try.
For those of us trying to eat low carb, these Thai Chicken Lettuce Cups are a perfect carb-free recipe that is super easy and quick to make, but also tastes absolutely amazing. Ground chicken breast is sautéed with wonderful Thai spices and are then served atop fresh, chilled lettuce leaves. I used romaine leaves with this, so it’s more like Thai Chicken Lettuce Boats, but butter lettuce and iceberg lettuce also work really well if you want more of a “cup-like” form. Each 2 lettuce boat/cup serving is just 5 Points +. On e word of caution…these Thai Chicken Lettuce Cups are incredibly addictive, and you may fid yourself craving that at 1am while watching Netflix…just sayin’.
This is a really delicious recipe that I decided to try, and I’m really glad I did. The lemon and chicken is just perfect together, and the sesame adds a wonderful toasted Asian flavor. I served this with a side of brown rice pilaf, with onions, bell peppers, broccoli and yellow squash. It’s simple and easy meal to make and it’s very versatile. It can be served with stir fry vegetables, or on top of a salad with a little extra of the lemon sauce as a dressing.
There is very little that isn’t better when it’s homemade, and sweet and sour chicken is one of those things that’s much better when you make it yourself. The pineapple gives a sweet flavor, while the onion and bell pepper add a delicious crunch. The best part is that it’s simple and delicious, and you can avoid the scary orange sauce. I used white rice, because that’s what I had on hand, but brown rice is a much better option since it has considerably more fiber (1 gram per serving).
