Sweet and Spicy Sriracha Crock Pot Chicken Recipe – 5 Points +

Sweet and Spicy Sriracha Crock Pot Chicken

It’s been a busy few weeks around my house lately. With both of my kids in summer camp only 3 half days a week, I have my hands full at home, and have been relying a lot on my crock pot to get dinner done. One of the most delicious and easy Weight Watchers Crock Pot recipes I’ve made is this fantastic Sweet and Spicy Sriracha Chicken. It has all the flavors I crave in one light and tasty dish – it’s sweet, salty and spicy! I like to serve it over a bed of shredded cabbage and use the sauce as a dressing for the cabbage, which makes for a great, low Points + meal. When I want something more filling, I’ll serve it over steamed brown rice, and again using the extra sauce to make the rice more flavorful. This is an easy, reliable and incredibly delicious dish that is a must make if you like spicy. :)

Persian Beef Kebabs Recipe – 5 Points +

Persian Kebabs

With some spare extra lean ground beef on hand one day, I decided to throw together a surprisingly easy, yet delicious meal of these Persian Beef Kebabs. Whenever I make them, I typically serve them with this Persian Lentil Quinoa and my favorite Cucumber Tomato Salad. But I was feeling pretty lazy this day, so I just served them over a bed of greens with some corn on the cob. The key to these delicious, juicy kebabs, is the grated onion. It’s time consuming to manually grate them, so if you have a food processor, that would be the easiest. But the onion is grated to a watery pulp which adds tremendous flavor and moisture to the extra lean beef. They are sooooo good! And just 5 Points + for 2 kebabs. My husband drizzled some tahini sauce over his (for extra Points), which was absolutely delicious. Traditionally, the meat is threaded onto long metal skewers and cooked over a charcoal grill. But I went skewer free and just grilled them up on my indoor grill pan. These Persian Beef Kebabs are easy, delicious, and a real Weight Watchers bargain. Enjoy!

Roasted Middle Eastern Chicken with Potatoes – 5 Points +

Roasted Middle Eastern Chicken with Potatoes

It’s amazing how spices can really make an impact on a meal. Take this Roasted Middle Eastern Chicken with Potatoes Recipe, for example. It’s really just a simple dish of chicken and potatoes, but the blend of Middle Eastern spice combination, turns this basic recipe into something absolutely mouthwatering. To keep this dish light, I calculated the nutritional stats based on only using chicken breasts. But if you want to spend an extra Point or two, use a variety of chicken cuts – thighs, drumsticks…whatever you’d like. The potatoes pick up all the flavors of the spices and the juice from the chicken, so they are heavenly. And the tomatoes help add a touch of acidity to bring everything together. This is a SUPER easy Weight Watchers Chicken recipe with minimum prep, and my family absolutely loves it. Enjoy!

Salt and Vinegar Chip Crusted Fish Recipe – 5 Points +

Salt and Vinegar Chip Crusted Fish Recipe

Oh, how I adore salt and vinegar potato chips. I have loved these since I was a kid, and I now consider myself a connoisseur of salt & vinegar chips. But being on the Weight Watchers program, I sadly have tried to avoid them, as most of the healthier versions aren’t flavorful enough and the tasty versions are too high in Points Plus and/or loaded with a bunch of awful artificial ingredients. But then, I discovered Kettle Brand Bakes Extra Crunchy Sea Salt & Vinegar Potato Chips, and I was in heaven. Seriously…they are perfection, and I am over the moon in love. And while my favorite way to enjoy them is straight out of the bag on a direct route into my belly, I’ve recently been incorporating them into some Weight Watchers Recipes too! One of the best is this Salt and Vinegar Chip Crusted Fish Recipe. The mild, flaky cod is covered in a crispy coating of these bold and tangy salt and vinegar chips, and the result is total perfection.
