Yummy Recipes

I have an old (2002) edition of the Weight Watchers 5 Ingredient/15 Minute Cookbook and made 2 yummy recipes for dinner tonight for a 6-point meal!

Tuscan Chicken and Beans

  • Olive oil-flavored cooking spray
  • 1 lb skinless, boneless chicken breast cut into 1-in pieces
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary (or use 2 tsp fresh)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 (16-oz) can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 Tbsp minced sun-dried tomatoes
  1. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; place over medium heat until hot. Add chicken; sprinkle with rosemary, salt, and pepper. Stir-fry 2 minutes.
  2. Add broth, beans, and tomatoes to skillet; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 8 minutes or until chicken is done. Sprinkle with fresh rosemary, if desired.

Makes 4 servings. Only 3 points each! 193 calories; 11g carbs; 1.9g fat; 3.8g fiber; 29.8g protein.

Garlic-Cheese Breadsticks

  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder (I used Garlic-Garlic from Tastefully Simple)
  • 1 (11-oz) can refrigerated soft breadstick dough
  1. Combine cheese and garlic on a plate. Prepare breadsticks according to package directions, pressing each stick into cheese mixture before baking.

Makes 6 servings or so (depends on the brand of breadsticks you get). I used Pilsbury and they ended up to be 3 points per serving (2 breadsticks). I would calculate your points based on the breadsticks. The cheese mix adds a negligible amt of points (probably less than 1).

I served both of these with some fresh zucchini from the farmer's market this morning, sauteed in a cooking spray with minced garlic and Italian seasoning.
