Saffron Chicken with Figs and Honey – 6 Points +

Saffron Chicken with Figs and Honey

This year for Rosh Hashanah, I decided to experiment with a new Weight Watchers Chicken Recipe utilizing some delicious, fresh fall figs, honey, and saffron. It was really quite simple to prepare and the chicken turned out so moist and juicy. The figs and honey (very traditional Rosh Hashanah ingredients) gave it a lovely sweet contrast, while sill keeping the the Points Plus value pretty low and not over powering the chicken. I served this over whole wheat Israeli cous cous (for extra Points), along with roasted broccoli and cucumber salad for a complete meal. Each chicken fillet ended up being just 6 Points +, which included the sauce and some of the figs. I was making this dish for my whole family, so I also added some chicken thighs and drumsticks, which were a huge hit. This could definitely become my new Weight Watchers Rosh Hashanah Recipe tradition!

The sweet figs and honey balsamic glaze go perfectly with the tangy goat cheese, salty bacon and peppery arugula. Each bite is like a little mouthful of heaven. They also make wonderful Weight Watchers appetizers or party foods and they are insanely easy to make. The high fiber crust helps to make them very filling.
