Healthy diet chicken with vegetables combines the ease of frozen chicken breasts with the nutritional benefits of fresh vegetables. What I like about this easy recipe is that little differences in my choice of seasonings can create a variety of tastes without compromising on my basic diet requirements. The basic recipe calls for basil, but you can easily substitute lite soy sauce and some sliced water chestnuts for a Chinese flavor. Can be served on rice or noodles but is great as is.
Edamame, the Japanese word for soybean, grow in clusters on bushy branches. To retain freshness, soybeans are usually parboiled and grozen. Edamame, a rich source of protein, have been enjoyed for over two thousand years in East Asia
This recipe is 4 pts. Please remember to not go off of stats on recipezaar because you have to choose the right ingredients to make it. Here is a break down...
Pita- 1 pt : Salad pita pocket
Pepperoni- 1 pt : 5 slices (if you want less pts, use turkey, I didn't. I don't like it.)
Cheese- 1 pt : fat free mozerella
Sauce- Ragu has the least amt of calories and fat that I have found
use whatever vegetable toppings you want. I listed what I used below.
When you add everything up and put it into ww calculations it comes up with 4 pts. (I guess everything else gets you one more pt.)
I am an idiot. Last year I GLUED all my weight watchers recipes out of weight watchers magazines into an exercise book. Come this year when I am given not one but two recipe folders to hold snippets out of magazine I have to try and unglue them. The result is not successful. So I am putting them on recipezaar to print them out to organise them. I’m not sure what issue they are from but this is definitely from weight watchers magazine.
This is a recipe from my 2008 Weight Watchers cookbook that we really enjoyed. I altered it slightly for our taste. It's a nice way to enjoy broccoli without all the cheese sauce. It's got a nice bite to it too. Feel free to leave out the crushed red pepper flakes. The frozen steam bags of broccoli work well with this recipe.
