I’ve always been kinda curious about trying enchiladas in a crock pot, so recently, I decided to give it a shot. I chose to make it a vegetarian enchilada recipe, that way, in case things went horribly wrong, I wouldn’t be wasting expensive meat. To my pleasant surprise, these turned out delicious, and I loooooooved having food ready to go in my slow cooker. It’s been pretty hectic in our household lately, so crock pot meals are a savior for me. Each of these incredibly healthy enchiladas comes out to 5 Points + each, and that’s including the sour cream topping. Granted, the cheese looked a little weird after being melted in a slow cooker, but the taste was amazing. I will definitely be making these again. Enjoy!
An all-in-one meal, these Crock Pot Chicken Taco Bowls are truly a satisfying dish. Each bowl is loaded with quality ingredients that taste AMAZING and will help give you energy while keeping you full. By cooking the chicken in the crock pot with salsa, it allows for the chicken to become, tender, juicy and oh-so flavorful. Each bowl is 9 Points +, which isn’t bad when you figure all that’s packed inside that bowl. And because it’s so filling, you really don’t need any side dishes with this. It also freezes really well! So double the recipe if you want to store some in the freezer for a quick and easy weeknight dinner or for lunches. The kids love topping their own bowls with all their favorite condiments, and I love how incredibly delicious and healthy these Chicken Taco Bowls are! This is Weight Watchers Crock Pot recipe that is a family favorite and gets made again and again.
These Slow Cooker Italian Pulled Chicken Sandwiches with Goat Cheese were AMAZING. The chicken was perfectly flavored, and was so tender and juicy. The spinach and roasted red pepper were a nice flavor (and fiber!) boost, and the crispy toasted roll with goat cheese was the icing on the the cake. This was truly an amazing meal. The key is finding the right roll to use. I like the Half Baked Panini Rustic Rolls from Trader Joe’s. They are fat free and just 3 Points +. I toasted them to add a nice crunch to the sandwich, which was divine. The fresh basil added such a lovely aroma and a delightful and bright essence. Each sandwich comes out to 8 Points +, which is pretty darn good for what you get! Pair it with some roasted vegetables, soup or salad for a low Points Weight Watchers meal. I had some of my extra weekly Points allowance available, so I served mine with some garlic fries :). Sooooooo good! These Weight Watchers Slow Cooker Italian Pulled Chicken Sandwiches are a MUST try, folks.
I cannot even begin to express how much I LOVED this Weight Watchers Crock Pot Recipe. The chicken is so incredibly flavorful and moist, and there is a lot of sauce so you can really smother it (I’m a big sauce person). For some extra Points, serve it over rice, noodles or quinoa. To avoid adding any extra points, I like eating this over roasted zucchini, red onion and pineapple. Any way you decide to eat it, this Crock Pot Sweet and Sour Garlic Chicken Recipe is incredibly delicious, and is sure to be a hit with the whole family. This fix it and forget it slow cooker meal brings a lovely and delicious meal to your table with just minutes of prep work. Gotta love that. This one is a must try, folks.
Normally, one wouldn’t imagine a bowl of steaming hot chili as a meal on a sweltering summer day, but this Crock Pot Pork Chili is so light and fresh tasting, it makes a wonderful Weight Watchers Summer Recipe. The pork is nice and lean, and the fresh lime juice really help give this low calorie chili a bright flavor boost and a summer-y feel. This is a perfect crock pot recipe for when you have a busy day ahead, as the prep work is minimal, so you can toss it all in your slow cooker and forget about it until dinner time. I also topped mine with some reduced fat sour cream (for 1 extra Points Plus) and I really loved the flavor and texture that added to the chili. But feel free to top it with other flavor fixin’s you might like: jalapenos, green onions, diced onions, shredded cheese…these are all great options. And at just 4 Points + for each large serving, this guilt free Crock Pot Pork Chili is an absolute winner.
This Lemon Garlic Slow Cooker Chicken Recipe is so simple yet so incredibly delicious. I’d hardly even call it a recipe! The preparation is so minimal and it requires just a few ingredients, yet the end result is a wonderfully moist and succulent chicken breast that boasts just 3 Points + per serving. It goes great when served over rice or roasted vegetables, or even on a sandwich. Strain some of the liquid leftover in the slow cooker and pour some over the chicken right before serving…it’s delicious! This is an excellent and incredibly easy Weight Watchers Slow Cooker Recipe that is a staple for when I have no time or energy to put into cooking, but still want to serve something healthy, flavorful, and low in Points.
I can honestly say, I have NEVER met a single soul who doesn’t love Philly Cheese steak sandwiches. And with good reason – these meaty sandwiches are beyond delicious. Traditionally made with steak, and topped with green peppers, onions and melted cheese, a cheese steak can be waaaaaaay too many Weight Watchers Points to enjoy on a regular basis. But by using chicken breast and a reduced fat provolone cheese instead, I was able to bring the Points down to a reasonable 7 Points + per sandwich, including the roll. I used Trader Joe’s Artisan rolls because they are low in Points and taste amazing, but the square shape make them not as fancy as the traditional hoagie roll used in cheese steak recipes. Also, I used a whole slice of provolone on each sandwich, so it ended up covering most of the chicken and veggies which makes it harder for you to see the insides of the sandwich based on my photo. But, you guys, this sandwich is SO good! Oh, and did I mention it’s all prepared in a crock pot? That’s righ…quick, easy, and delicious, this Crock Pot Chicken Philly Cheese Steak Recipe is a must make.
Lately, I’ve been really into the whole “Clean Eating” phenomenon because I really do think that eating “cleaner” foods (i.e. foods that are not processed, made with artificial ingredients, etc) is not only the way to serious weight loss, but also to much better health. I’m not perfect…and I still enjoy some junk food, some fast food, and some foods that are just down right awful for you. But now, I do it very occasionally, and I real labels on EVERYTHING. Feeding my two children has made me an advocate for their healthy eating habits, as well as my own. So, I’ve been trying some new clean eating recipes and working on creating my own Weight Watchers Clean Eating Recipes. The first I tried was this Crock Pot Balsamic Chicken with Pears and Portabella Mushrooms from The Gracious Pantry. I altered it just a tiny bit to give it more flavor, and I have to say, I was blown away at how tasty this turned out! It was so simple, and yet so delicious. My picky husband enjoyed it too, and I loved serving such a healthy meal for the family. And each serving was just 4 Points +! This will definitely be made again and again. I highly recommend giving it a try. Enjoy!
Another great Weight Watchers Crock Pot Recipe that is super easy, delicious and just 5 Points + per serving. This Crock Pot Chicken Teriyaki Recipe was a hit with the whole family. I ate mine as is to avoid adding extra Points Plus, but I served my families over some rice, and they LOVED it. The pineapple and bell pepper are a great way to add a bit more flavor to the chicken, and to get in those fruit and vegetable servings. Also, this low calorie crock pot recipe can be done with frozen chicken too…but it may closer to 8 hours cook time instead. Next time I make this, I think I’ll add in some fresh sugar snap peas too….yum! Enjoy.
I LOVE Thai food and I love my crock pot, so this Crock Pot Thai Green Curry Chicken Recipe was the perfect marriage. Easy to put together, the end result is a delicious and filling green curry chicken that clocks in at only 6 Points + per serving. The only thing that I would do differently next time, is use fresh vegetables. The frozen Asian stir fry vegetables that I used tasted fine, but were a limp and soggy. If you prefer a more firm texture to your veggies, then I’d suggest using fresh vegetables instead of the frozen. Either way, this is still a super tasty and super easy Weight Watchers Crock Pot Recipe. Serve it over some brown rice or noodles for a complete meal. Enjoy!
Oh how I love Weight Watchers crock pot recipes. My days have been SO hectic lately, and the crock pot saves my sanity. I get the food in the crock pot in the morning, after I’ve had coffee and am full of energy, then come dinner time, when I’m often worn out and exhausted I have a healthy dinner, ready to go. Often times, when I’m feeling way too tired to cook, I’ll order take out or have my husband pick up dinner on his way home. This can ruin my entire day of eating healthy. So having a delicious and healthy Weight Watchers friendly dinner in my crock pot is often a big part in keeping me on track. And today, I wanted to share a new favorite Italian Chicken Crock Pot Recipe of mine. often called “Angel Chicken”. Each serving is just 5 Points + each and it is delicious! Chicken smothered in a creamy mushroom wine sauce? Yes, please! For some extra Points, serve it over rice or pasta. Or for 0 extra Points, it also works really nicely over asparagus or roasted bell peppers. This crock pot chicken recipe is a real crowd pleaser. Enjoy!
