Baked Buffalo Chicken Taquitos Recipe – 6 Points +

Buffalo Chicken Taquitos

As I’ve mentioned time and time again on this blog, I am obsessed with Buffalo Chicken anything. And I’m always experimenting with new healthy, and low calorie ways to get my craving satisfied. Over the years, I’ve created a variety of Buffalo Chicken Weight Watchers Recipes, but these Baked Buffalo Chicken Taquitos are topping my list right now. Holy Moly were they good. A bit spicy for the kids, but my husband and I TORE THESE UP! If you have some leftover rotisserie chicken on hand, it works great in this recipe. I didn’t, so I just boiled a couple of chicken breasts. It’s a very quick and easy recipe to throw together and makes a fantastic Weight Watchers party appetizer or game day food. In fact, these are so good, they are making it to my Weight Watchers Super Bowl Recipes list. I also tried making some of these with the Mountain Bread that I posted about last week, and it worked perfectly with those too!

Australian Mountain Bread – 2 Points +

Mountain Bread

A while back, I came across this Mountain Bread in the refrigerated section at my local Whole Foods store. They looked pretty big, and the nutritional stats indicated that they were only 2 Points + per sheet. So I bought a pack, took them home, and put them to the test, and they were truly fantastic! They are thin and light, but when wrapped around your favorite light wrap fixins’, they are a perfect way to make a big, hearty wrap that is still low in Weight Watchers Points. I’ve eaten them with cold wraps, but prefer to use them with a heated wrap, like this Roasted Red Pepper Wrap. Mountain Bread has only 3 ingredients—flour, water, salt…that’s it! No yeast, no dairy, no cholesterol, no stabilizers, no added sugar, no oil, no artificial ingredients. All varieites have wheat–except Spelt. I used the Natural Mountain Bread Variety, but there are lots of others to choose from (Click HERE to see all the varieties they offer). They also have a long shelf life – 60 days at room temperaure. Freeze for up to 12 months with easy defrost and STILL GET THE 60 DAYS! Sooooo good! Keep reading to learn more…

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!

Corn Quiche Recipe – 4 Points +

Corn Quiche

Believe it or not, I got the idea for this delicious, crustless Corn Quiche recipe from one of my son’s preschool teachers. The teachers had helped the kids make this one day for their afternoon snack, and when I came to pick up my son, he was still sitting at the table gobbling his down. One of his teachers, Ms. Sylvia, told me that he LOVED it. And it was pretty clear that was true. So, I was excited to recreate it for him at home, and figured I could transform it into a Weight Watchers friendly quiche too! So Ms. Sylvia told me what was in it, and I went to work putting it all together later that week. Because I was wanting to keep the quiche low in Points Plus, I used EggBeaters instead of real eggs. If you prefer real eggs, you’ll want to use 3 large ones in place of the EggBeaters, but it will increase the Points Plus value a bit. It turned out absolutely perfect, and incredibly delicious. And just 4 Points Plus per serving. Thank you, Ms. Sylvia! Your quiche was a hit!

Spicy Cucumber Salad Recipe – 1 Points +

Spicy Cucumber Salad

I am a spicy food fanatic. If it’s spicy, I’ll eat it. One of the good things about that, is that most hot sauces/spicy seasonings are relatively low in Points, so I can use a lot of them to really flavor up my foods without adding on many, if any at all, calories and Points. In fact, my vegetables are often just the vehicle for some spicy sauce or dressing that I love. And this Spicy Cucumber Salad Recipe that I’m sharing today is a pretty fantastic way to eat cucumbers. The siracha based dressing for this salad adds such tremendous flavor with a big kick of heat, but for just 1 Points + per serving. So this is a great Weight Watchers side salad recipe that helps to fill me up without using a lot of Points Plus. I love this salad so much, I’ll often even throw it together for a late night snack The crunch and the flavor help me tame that evening snack beast. :)

Country Fried Chicken with Gravy

This Weight Watchers Chicken Recipe for Country Fried Chicken with Gravy is one of my absolute favorite dishes. That gravy….it is to die for! The chicken is tenderized in a buttermilk marinade then breaded and baked for a crispy finish with tender and juicy breast meat inside. Smothered with some of that heavenly country gravy, and you’ll be lost in a fit of tastebud ecstasy! I often make this with a mix of chicken breasts, drumsticks and thighs, since the rest of my family prefers the dark meat, but I only eat the breasts to save the extra Point or two. If you want to splurge a bit, serve this over one of these Whole Wheat Buttermilk Biscuits for an extra 3 Points Plus….it’s sooooo good! Just 7 Points + per serving makes this classic recipe a perfect, lower calorie Weight Watchers comfort food recipe that will have you completely forgetting that you are on a diet.

gimMe Organic Roasted Seaweed Snacks – 1 Points +

GimMe Roasted Seaweed Snacks

A good friend of mine has been munching on these gimMe Organic Roasted Seaweed Snacks a lot recently, and when she told me that each pack was only 1 Points Plus, I totally understood why. I know what you are thinking though…roasted seaweed…for REAL? But when I decided to give some a try myself, I found them to be crunchy, flaky, salty, and absolutely delicious. These paper thin sheets of seaweed is the same stuff that is used in wrapping many sushi rolls. So, if you’ve had sushi, you can get an idea of the taste. Except these are crispier, and more flavored, so they make a fantastic healthy and low calorie snack to have, sans the sushi roll. Keep reading to learn more…

Slow Cooker Garlic Beef and Cauliflower Mash – 8 Points +

Slow Cooker Garlic Beef and Cauliflower Mash

For a fancy Friday night dinner, I put together this Slow Cooker Garlic Beef and Cauliflower Mash Recipe. It tasted so unbelievably good…like I had spent all day in the kitchen toiling over a hot stove. But really, my slow cooker did all the work. The beef was tender, juicy and perfectly flavored. And instead of standard mashed potatoes, I steamed some cauliflower and mashed it together with a bit of light butter and sour cream. It was pure perfection….and just 8 Points +. The mashed cauliflower was a perfect vehicle for the sauce that the beef cooked in too. I served it with my Lemon and Butter Green Beans (I also threw in some toasted almond slices and minced garlic to those green beans – sooooo good!) Overall, a fantastic Weight Watchers dinner recipe that I high recommend trying.
