Cooking a healthy, delicious dinner doesn’t always mean dedicating hours of your time and multiple dishes to the effort.
You can whip up this phenomenal teriyaki chicken on a single sheet pan with about 10 minutes of prep time and another 40 for cooking.
The sauce is a simple mixture of soy sauce, honey, vinegar, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, cornstarch, and water. It takes practically no time to make.
Then, simply drizzle it over the chicken and bake it for about 20 minutes before adding your veggies.
You might think the tortillas in chicken quesadillas would make them unsuitable for Weight Watchers, but you’d be wrong!
These four-ingredient, 25-minute chicken quesadillas are 100% Weight Watchers approved!
The trick is in getting the right tortillas (low-carb; high-fiber).
Everything else is just chicken, low-fat cheese, and a bit of seasoning. Enjoy!
This incredible chicken and broccoli dish has a zesty, flavorful sauce, tender pieces of well-seasoned chicken, crunchy broccoli, onions, and more.
You can have it on the table in just 40 minutes, and you’ll only have to mess up a single skillet (and a few utensils) to do it. It doesn’t get much easier than that.
One of the things that always bothers me about any diet is the thought of giving up pasta.
However, the beauty of Weight Watchers is that you won’t have to “give up” anything.
It teaches you to eat balanced meals and enjoy your favorite things in moderation. Plus, a serving size of this particular pasta is just eight points.
If you love creamy pasta, ranch flavoring, chicken, and bacon, you’ll go nuts for this dish.
Why waste points and money on your favorite Chinese takeout when you can make outrageously good orange chicken at home?
This dish is saucy, delicious, and features just the tiniest bit of crunch from the sesame seeds. Best of all, you can have it ready to eat in less than 30 minutes.
But what if you prefer sesame chicken to orange chicken? Well, you’re in luck because I have a Weight Watchers friendly recipe for that, too.
It’s unbelievably simple to make and tastes just as yummy as it would from your favorite local eatery.
Nope. Your eyes aren’t fooling you. That does say “zero points.”
That’s because this amazing chili only has 80 calories, zero net carbs, and one gram of sugar per serving.
I know it sounds too good to be true, but in this case, it isn’t. You can eat as much of this chicken chili as you want, as it’s totally guilt-free!
This light, 15-minute meal will put you in mind of something from P.F. Chang’s, and as a bit of a Chang’s addict myself, I mean that as a total compliment.
It’s basically just ground chicken breast, green onions, water chestnuts, and lettuce.
Most of the work goes into making the hoisin sauce (which isn’t that difficult).
Plus, you can always make a bottle of the sauce ahead of time and keep it refrigerated.
Doing so means you could potentially have this ready in just 10 minutes.
You can whip up the chicken for these shredded chicken tacos with only three ingredients: taco seasoning, boneless skinless chicken breasts, and salsa!
Then, simply pair them with some low-carb, high-fiber tortillas and load them down with your favorite veggies.
If you’re a fan of Mexican food, these are hard to beat.
It’s hard to believe that something that looks this good could require so few points, but one serving of this dish is only six points.
If you’re looking for something fresh, clean, and healthy, give this one a try. It takes a little over an hour to make, but much of that is marinating time.
It’s actually quite simple to pull together, even for beginner chefs.
When it comes to light and healthy lunch options, it’s hard to beat a cobb salad. It’s quick and easy and features plenty of veggies and protein.
And this “skinny” version isn’t much different from “the real thing.” You’ll still keep the chicken, bacon, eggs, and even the croutons and dressing if you want.
Crack chicken is another of those dishes that tastes so good that it seems like it couldn’t possibly be WW-compliant.
It is, though, with only three, five, and three points on the blue, green, and purple plans, respectively.
It’s cheesy and features crunchy, salty bacon and delectable chicken.
There’s also a bit of zestiness to delight your tongue.
A quick look at the ingredients list for these wraps makes it look like they’ll be challenging to make, but they aren’t.
Most of the ingredients go into the peanut sauce.
After you’ve made that and then marinated and baked the chicken, everything else is just a matter of assembly.
Not only is smothered chicken and gravy safe for your Weight Watchers diet, but it’s also low-carb and keto-friendly. Oh, and delicious, of course!
It’s crazy easy to make and as filling as it is tasty.
The chicken is succulent and buttery and has the most spectacular taste with notes of pepper, paprika, and more.
The gravy, too, is out of this world. It’s thick, herb-flavored, and perfect on top of the chicken, mashed potatoes, rice, or a yeast roll.
I don’t know about you, but I can’t live without my Mexican food, no matter what type of diet I’m on.
That’s why I love these cheesy chicken enchiladas so much.
You can whip them up in less than an hour, and each one is only seven freestyle points.
And unlike a lot of “diet” food, you’ll never be able to tell the difference with these.
These baked buffalo chicken taquitos are another excellent choice if you’re looking for something zestier.
All you’ll need to make them are tortillas, chicken, cream cheese, fat-free cheddar, and buffalo sauce.
You can also drizzle them in some fat-free ranch dressing for an extra kick. Personally, I find them to be just as good without it.
You can even have fried chicken tenders on Weight Watchers! I know, right?! This diet isn’t nearly as restrictive as it once was.
The secret? Cook them in your air fryer!
Coat each tenderloin in an egg wash, milk, and flour, then add salt, pepper, garlic, paprika, and breadcrumbs.
(Go as crazy as you like with the seasonings; it’s your chicken, after all!)
Making them like this gives the chicken tenders a delightfully crispy crust but keeps them tender and juicy on the inside.
This sweet and tangy chicken and quinoa salad is a superb choice for anyone looking to change things up a bit and try something new.
The quinoa is light and easy on the stomach; the chicken is lean and tender, and the orange sauce is scrumptious.
Is there anything more comforting than a warm, meat-n-veggie-filled pot pie? Maybe, but I can’t think of anything at the moment.
All you’ll need to make this one Weight Watchers-compliant is to choose your ingredients wisely.
For example, use low-fat buttermilk biscuits for the topping instead of making your own crust.
If you want to make dough, though, you still can. Use Greek yogurt and self-rising flour and follow the instructions in the alternate directions.
Either way, it’s still a healthy dinner option.
Anyone who loves sweet and sour chicken will appreciate this quick, 35-minute recipe, regardless of whether or not they’re on Weight Watchers.
It uses only the simplest ingredients, but it has an exceptionally robust flavor that’ll make you want to lick the plate clean when you’re done.
All you’ll need to pull together this chicken-based dish is boneless chicken breasts, a packet of Italian dressing mix, low-fat cream cheese, and whatever you want to serve it with (rice, noodles, etc.).
It’s creamy, a bit zesty, and incredibly appetizing. It’s practically a meal all by itself, but you can add it to noodles or something else if you like.
Doing so adds extra points, though.
These simple skewers have a delightful sweet and savory flavor that’ll have you dreaming of Hawaii.
The chicken is downright heavenly, and the mixture of pineapples and red onions is divine.
They’re fresh, slightly tropical, and ridiculously filling. No one even has to know you’re dieting when the food is this good.
Without the tortillas, chicken fajitas are remarkably healthy for you anyway, but this sheet pan recipe for them is one of my favorites.
The meat and veggies are equally tasty, and both are flavorful with a hint of spiciness.
The chicken is fall-apart tender, but the veggies retain a bit of their crunch if you don’t over-cook them.
And you don’t have to forego tortillas altogether. Grab yourself some low-carb, high-fiber ones, or make your own!
These baked chicken tenders may not get as crunchy as the air fryer ones above, but they’re every bit as yummy, and maybe even more so.
I enjoy these because you’ll add parmesan, Dijon mustard, and paprika to the crust, along with the traditional breadcrumbs, salt, and pepper.
It gives them a slightly zesty, cheesy flavor that’s hard not to love.
This creamy, cheesy casserole uses only five ingredients: chicken breasts, Doritos, cream of chicken soup, milk, and fat-free cheddar cheese.
It looks like something you’d serve at a frat party, but it uses only four Weight Watchers points, despite the Doritos!
The inside is gooey and creamy, and the topping is crunchy and perfect. It makes for an excellent combination.
