We all know that chicken is a great lean protein so this dish is perfect for those of you on Weight Watchers! It has very few ingredients but they are all very flavorful and fresh tasting which makes this dish even better! It’s only 4 Weight Watchers Smart Points per serving. That was calculated based on this recipe at six servings. If you serve over rice, the points will change.
I love making meals that are quick and easy. The whole family loves this meal, even the kids. Because the chicken is low on the points scale this whole meal is very friendly for Weight Watchers and dieting in general. The whole recipe is 31 points, one serving is about 6 Points on the SmartPoints scale! I served ours with rice as a side and used the leftover chicken on my salad the next day. This chicken would also be great in a sandwich or wrap.
