Roasted Red Pepper and Goat Cheese Wrap – 8 Points +

Roasted Red Pepper and Goat Cheese Wrap

Years ago for my wedding, I got this amazing panini press, and I have to say, it is one of the most used appliances in my kitchen. I am obsessed with making wraps, paninis, grilled cheese sandwiches, and so many other yummy things on it. My latest favorite Weight Watchers lunch recipe to hit my panini grill is this Roasted Red Pepper and Goat Cheese Wrap….it is SO mouthwateringly good! And HUGE. The warm, melty goat cheese goes perfectly with the smoky bell pepper and the fresh basil. It’s a complete explosion of flavor in your mouth. You could absolutely make this wrap cold, if you prefer, but I recommend it warm. If you don’t have a panini press, you could use an oven/toaster oven instead. And just 8 Points + for the whole huge wrap, makes this recipe a staple vegetarian meal for me. Enjoy!

This Chipotle Chicken Wrap Recipe is one of my favorite Weight Watchers lunch recipes. Not only is it a very nicely sized serving and very filling, but it is mouthwateringly good!

Quinoa Burgers with Caramelized Onions and Chipotle Lime Mayo – 9 Points +

Quinoa Burgers with Caramelized Onions and Chipotle Lime Mayo

Vegetarians, you may just want to marry me after eating this burger. It is UNBELIEVABLY good. I am not a vegetarian, and I’d eat this quinoa burger a million times over again. Granted, this is a 9 Points Weight Watchers Recipe, BUT, because the burger patty is made with quinoa and white beans, it’s incredibly filling. I also used a real brioche bun, to give it that added gourmet flair. You could shave off another Point or two by using a sandwich thin or another light bread roll. The caramelized onions really give it a that extra something special, and the chipotle lime mayo ties it all in perfectly. It’s truly a unique Weight Watchers Quinoa Recipe like you’ve never had before. Pair it with a light salad, roasted veggies or a low calorie soup for a complete meal. This vegetarian burger recipe is a must try, folks.

Bacon Ranch Turkey Wrap Recipe – 6 Points +

Bacon Ranch Turkey Wrap

THIS.WAS.AMAZING. Words cannot even begin to express my love for these Bacon Ranch Turkey Wraps. Salty bacon, roasted turkey, smooth American cheese, creamy ranch dressing, and crunchy lettuce, tomatoes, and onions all rolled up into a low calorie, high fiber for wrap for just 6 Points +?!?!? YES!!!!! Not only were they easy and super quick to make, but they were unbelievably delicious. Everything about this wrap worked perfectly together. I just took the idea of a BLT and altered it a bit to make it more Weight Watchers friendly. I use Flatout flatbreads a lot when I’m making wraps because they are absolutely the perfect texture and taste for it. If you aren’t tracking Points Plus, feel free to use any kind of wrap you’d like and use the full fat American cheese – the taste is slightly better. And if you want to shave off another Point or two, you could make this with turkey bacon instead of the regular bacon, but I’d advise against that and encourage you to spend the Points with the real bacon. It’s such a big player in this dish that it doesn’t quite taste the same as the turkey bacon. If you like BLT’s, then this Bacon Ranch Turkey Wrap will blow your mind. Enjoy!

I also like to top it with some arugula whenever I have it on hand. Serve this with a light salad like my Cucumber Tomato Salad and or a 0 Points + soup for a complete meal. Enjoy!

Greek Chicken Gyros Recipe – 7 Points +

Greek Chicken Gyros

Gyros. I ADORE them. And when I used to live in Los Angeles, my husband and I used to go to this amazing little restaurant that sold the most delicious gyros. It was right around the corner from our apartment, and we used to walk there VERY REGULARLY for dinner. I remember how I used to stand there and literally salivate as I watched them slice that beautifully tender meat off the rotisserie. But now, being a Weight Watcher, I’d have to seriously limit my gyro consumption if I wanted to actually lose any weight. So when my friend told me about this yummy Chicken Gyros Recipe she tried from Annie’s Eats, I decided to give it a try myself and see if it would truly have the flavors and satiety to satisfy my gyro craving. Using chicken instead of lamb meat was a good start to keeping it light. I just had to add in a few more spices to give it more of an authentic gyro taste. And then I served it on whole wheat pita. I also used much simpler Tzatziki sauce method, and was very pleased with how excellent (and easy!) and was. The gyros were fantastic. If you are a gyro lover, add these Greek Chicken Gyros to your ‘Must Try’ list, asap.

Slow Cooker Italian Pulled Chicken Sandwiches

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.

Crock Pot Chicken Philly Cheese Steak Recipe – 7 Points +

Crock Pot Chicken Philly Cheesesteak

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.

Chicken, Roasted Red Pepper, and Goat Cheese Sandwich Recipe – 8 Points +

Chicken, Roasted Red Pepper, and Goat Cheese Sandwich

This low fat Chicken Sandwich recipe made with roasted red peppers and goat cheese is such an easy and delicious Weight Watchers lunch idea. I often save a few grilled or roasted chicken breasts from a previous dish I prepared, so I can have one ready to go when I’m making this sandwich. But you can also prepare the chicken from scratch if you like, or even use store bought rotisserie chicken. The sweetness of the roasted peppers make a wonderful combination with the tart goat cheese, and the onions and spinach give the sandwich some extra crunch. This is truly a delicious and satisfying sandwich recipe. Each sandwich is 8 Points +, which is great for 4oz of chicken 1oz of cheese and a whole roll. Pair this with a low calorie salad or soup recipe for a complete meal. Enjoy!
