Alpine Chicken is Chicken slow cooked with ham or Canadian bacon, cheese, noodles, and seasonings. It’s a rich, hearty, southern dish that can typically be pretty fattening.

I came across this fantastic recipe that manages to still deliver all “YUM factor”, but with a lot fewer calories and fat! This dish is a must-do!

  1. Hello I am new to your site I see this was posted 4yrs ago and that you didn’t have the total points for the dish was wondering if you have figured it out yet and what is the exact serving size would love to make this!!! Thanks so much!

    • I am currently making this dish and with all the ingredients including the noodles it comes to 11pts plus per serving for WW

    I used healthy request cream of chicken cause that is what I had, and used 12oz noodles. And the points plus went down to 9 with the smaller bag of pasta.

  3. Hunnybunny2005

    I came up with 11 points plus with the pasta and 6 servings on etools.

  4. Hi

    could you please give me the total Points + on this recipe so want to make it

    thanks for your time


    • Unfortunately, I don't have the nutritional information for this recipe. Grr! But I'm working to rebuild all of my older recipes in order to recalculate them with the new Points Plus values.

  5. Can't wait to try this! It's in the crock pot now! I had a hard time finding the pimento store was unsure of what it was? So I got a sweet red pepper, is that correct?

  6. I couldn't find low fat cheddar cheese soup…where did you find it??? How many points extra if I make it with regular cheese soup?? THANKS!

    • I just used a can of Campbell's soup, which you should be able to find this at your grocery store. But if you cant find it, add on on 1 extra Point for using the full fat version of the soup.

  7. Basically, there are 6 servings in this dish. Each serving is equivalent to one chicken breast and approximately 1/6th of the rest of the mixture. :)

  8. What is the serving size? I am asuming one chicken breast but how do you measure the rest of the stuff.

  9. I take the chicken out of the crock pot and than I mix remaining items left in crock pot before pouring back over chicken?

  10. Yes, the noodle points are additional. The noodles are completely optional… if you don't want those extra points, just don't use them. Or, add in some zero calorie, zero point Miracle Noodles. They are super delicious and wont add and extra Weight Watchers Points to the recipe!

  11. You say don't forget to add points for noodles. Does that mean add points in addition to the 5 that you claim as the total? I am confused. It looks so good! thanks!
