Pork Chops with Apples & Onions – 9 Points +

Pork Chops with Apples & Onions

Pork chops with apples and onions is one of my favorite ways to make pork chops. Apples and pork just go so well together that I don’t usually make gravy for my pork (even a pork roast). I just serve it with applesauce (a great time saver for when you’re crunched for time and can’t make something like this). I’ve made caramelized apples and onions to go with my pork chops in the past, but this version with balsamic vinaigrette is much lower in carbohydrates and fat (since you don’t add quite a bit of brown sugar and butter). The best part is that it’s simple and just as delicious to make as with caramelized apples and onions – but it’s healthier. I prefer bone in pork chops, since they tend to keep their juiciness better for me, but you can use anything. Also, if you’ve got a pork roast in the oven, you can still make this topping and serve it on the side for your family to put over the top of their pork roast. It doesn’t matter how you make your pork chops, either. In the skillet (like this recipe), grilled or baked, the topping will work just as well with any of them.

Quinoa and Chicken Stuffed Peppers Recipe – 7 Points +

Quinoa and Chicken Stuffed 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.

Thai Chicken Lettuce Cups Recipe – 5 Points +

Thai Chicken Lettuce Cups

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’.

Roasted Garlic Cilantro Shrimp

Summer is in full swing, and I’m all about healthy and delicious Weight Watchers Grilling Recipe that are quick and easy! This Roasted Garlic Cilantro Shrimp Recipe is just the ticket – it’s so fresh and light, yet absolutely bursting with flavor. The roasting of the garlic adds such a wonderful, slightly sweet taste to the sauce, so make sure to NOT skip that step! It’s a bit of extra work, but totally worth it. I also like to take the extra sauce and serve it on the side for dipping, or spoon it over some fresh Italian bread, then place face down on the grill – so incredibly good. For this recipe, I used my cast iron grill pan, but a regular outdoor grill works just as well. Enjoy!

Chicken Bruschetta – 5 Points +

Chicken Bruschetta

When it starts to get this time of year, two things are growing in abundance in the garden – tomatoes and basil. That means its time for garden fresh chicken bruschetta. Bruschetta is a wonderful aromatic dish that has the whole house smelling delicious for hours afterwards. Traditionally, bruschetta is served on fresh french bread, but this recipe doesn’t use french bread. It’s much lower in carbohydrates and points, and you won’t miss the french bread either.
