What is the Weight Watchers Freestyle Info? 

Everything in this recipe is zero points! That means you can have this great Fiesta Chicken recipe for free on Weight Watchers Freestyle.  I would use the opportunity to top this recipe with my favorite items for a few points. The idea of Weight Watchers Freestyle is to find a balance. Eating only zero points foods won’t get you the results you want to see. Add some tortilla chips to the top, some low fat cheese, or even some avocado for a nice balanced meal.  Zero Point Fiesta Chicken is a perfect Weight Watchers FreeStyle recipe your family will love to see you make!

Can I make this into a healthy chicken soup? 

Yes you can! This fiesta chicken is such a versatile dish. You can definitely make this into a fiesta chicken crock pot recipe as well.  Add an additional 3 cups of vegetable or chicken broth, I’d serve the soup with tortilla strips or crackers. You can also top this with avocado, green onions, nonfat plain greek yogurt, or fat free sour cream. Cheese is also good!

Is there a fiesta chicken crock pot recipe? 

If you want to make this in the crockpot you can easily do that by combining all the ingredients and cooking for about 6 hours on low or until chicken is cooked through. You could make this fiesta chicken crock pot friendly by doing the chicken ahead of time, makes it so quick and easy to throw it together and just put it on low or warm for a few hours until it’s all combined and ready to go.

    What kind of salsa do you use? Also, is the time provided based on thawed chicken?
