One of the great things about doing Weight Watchers is that I still get to eat all of the delicious meals that I love. Weight Watchers teaches us how to make smart choices by assigning point values to foods. That means we can choose to “spend” our points on whatever we like, much like money, when the points are done…so is the eating for the day.

I’ve found that lightening up my favorite recipes with Weight Watchers in mind is the perfect solution. I get to keep my daily and weekly points in check but I can still make one meal for the whole family to enjoy.

Weight Watchers chicken parmesan is easy to make, delicious, perfectly crispy while staying tender and moist inside, and the whole family devours it without knowing they’re eating a healthy meal.

There are quite a few ingredients in my Weight Watchers chicken parmesan. That being said, a lot of it is stuff I usually have on hand and there are no hard to find or oddball items on the list.

The full list with amounts is in the recipe card at the bottom of the post, check that out for serving size, and nutritional information as well.

The full list with amounts is in the recipe card at the bottom of the post, check that out for serving size, and nutritional information as well.

From the pantry we will need, red wine vinegar, olive oil, salt, seasoned breadcrumbs, oregano, pepper, red pepper flakes, and marinara sauce.

The fresh items we will need are grated parmesan, arugula, boneless skinless chicken breasts, garlic, mozzarella cheese, whole wheat bread, and water.

Is this a quick dinner recipe?

Thanks to the air fryer we can have this entire recipe on the table in about 30 minutes or less. I love that I can prepare a whole fresh meal for my family in under an hour.

I serve this recipe just as is, but you could also pair this with a salad or some fresh or steamed vegetables if you like!

How to make Weight Watchers chicken parmesan:

To start we need to mix together the vinegar, oil, garlic, salt, oregano, pepper, and water. Make sure to use a bowl that is shallow and large so you can work well inside of it!

Spread the breadcrumbs out on a sheet of wax paper, prepare the chicken by dipping it in the dressing and then placing each side onto the breadcrumbs to coat it.

After the chicken is coated spray each piece lightly with non-stick spray.

Preheat the air fryer to 360 Degrees Fahrenheit. Spray the basket before you begin cooking, use non-stick cooking spray. Add two of the pieces of chicken and fry for about 4-5 minutes. Now we need to turn the chicken over, spoon on 2 tablespoons of marinara sauce, and sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon each of mozzarella and parmesan cheese.

Put the air fryer basket back in and cook for another 3-4 minutes. Make sure your chicken is cooked through and the outside is crispy. Repeat the process for the remaining chicken.

While the chicken cooks, lay out your bread or toast if you prefer, and put a few leaves of arugula on each slice. Top each slice of bread/toast with a chicken breast and enjoy!

How many myWW points are in this chicken parmesan?

The new system of Weight Watchers, called myWW has three different plans…this air fryer chicken parmesan for Weight Watchers is great for any plan. Below you will find the breakdown of points for 1 serving of this Weight Watchers chicken parmesan. I’ve calculated the points for all 3 plans so you can get an idea of how this recipe will track.

A top down look at the finished meal ready for eating.

This whole recipe makes 4 servings. 1 open faced sandwich is a serving! The point values are for 1 serving. If you make changes to any of the ingredients you’ll need to calculate the points for yourself…I recommend this anyway as different brands have different point values for the same serving size / ingredients on occasion!!

  • Blue Plan: 7 Points
  • Green Plan: 8 Points
  • Purple Plan: 7 Points

If you feel like the points are too high for you, definitely remove the bread from the equation and see where that leaves you. You can always serve this over more greens or a salad if you don’t have many points to spare or just don’t like to eat carbs!!
