On those nights when you want a complete meal in one pot, this One Pot Moroccan Chicken Rice and Potatoes Recipe is a breeze, and it delivers a delicious and filling meal with minimal effort. By cooking all the food together in one pot, the chicken juices really help to add amazing flavor and tenderness to the rice and potatoes. And the Moroccan spices make it all just taste soooooo good together! This recipe was taught to me by my amazing Moroccan friend who makes this meal at least once a week. The first time I had it served to me at her house, I assumed this was a dish she slaved over all day. But to my surprise, it’s a pretty easy, hands off meal that comes together perfectly! And who doesn’t love having just 1 pot to clean up afterwards?
Another super easy recipe I want to share today that not only tastes incredible, but requires such little effort. This Spanish Chicken and Potato Roast Recipe is all done in one pot (yay for easy clean-up!). The ingredients are combined in a large baking dish, and then slow roasted in the oven, delivering one heck of a tasty dinner. The potatoes soak up the juices released by the chicken which makes them heavenly moist and tender. And the simple seasonings are all it takes for a fantastic flavor. This hearty, satisfying Spanish Chicken and Potato Roast Recipe will definitely leave you feeling satisfied! Serve with a light salad or steamed veggies for a complete meal.
These vegetables are a great way to make your vegetables simple, easy and incredibly delicious. They go well with grilled chicken breast, pork roast, steak, or just about anything else that you’d like to pair them with. The lemon juice helps to keep them fresh and bright, and if you’d like a little extra spice in them, use seasoned pepper instead of black pepper. You can use baby red potatoes, russet or yukon gold potatoes. Baby red potatoes add a beautiful red to the dish – and you don’t have to peel them. These flavorful veggies are loved by everyone in the family.
It’s summer time, and what says summer more than a picnic on a beautiful day? One of my favorite picnic foods growing up was my mom’s potato salad. It’s really delicious, and it’s something that is easy and quick to make, but ends up fabulous every time. I live in the Midwest now, and we love our potatoes, so this dish fits in at every picnic and potluck. It’s something that my husband begs me to make. I like to make baked potatoes a couple of days before, and then just peel and slice the extra for this potato salad instead of boiling the potatoes to start with. It makes it even quicker – and you don’t have to try to work with hot potatoes! We had it the other night with BBQ pulled pork, coleslaw and fresh fruit. It’s delicious and sure to please the whole family.
Comfort food does not have to be high in calories and fat. This is an alternative to french fries. Instead of heavy oils and grease, oven baked fries are much better. As a bonus, they are healthier too.
This easy side dish of oven baked french fries is a perfect healthy alternative. I serve these with malt vinegar when I make fish and chips, or grilled burgers (both beef and turkey). I have made these with veggie burgers too. My friend’s children love these and prefer them to fast food french fries.

A simple and light side dish recipe that packs quite a punch are these delicious Greek Roasted Lemon Potatoes. The amazing bright lemon flavor is accentuated with garlic and oregano to give it a hint of Greek flair. This takes just minutes to prepare and goes well with just about anything, so it’s become a staple around here! This Weight Watchers potato recipe was a huge hit with the whole family, and each serving is just 4 Points +. If you don’t mind an extra Point, try adding a tbsp of reduced fat feta cheese crumbles to each serving – it’s incredibly good.

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!
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.
