Chicken and Andouille Sausage With Peppers (Ww 5 Points)

"My personal rendition of a WW recipe that I love because it packs all the flavors of NOLA while managing to be both fast and light. The level of heat here varies so much based on your brand of Cajun spice and sausage - so taste and adjust accordingly. For those who *do* count points, try finding the lowfat chicken andouille sausage. Half the points of the regular so you can add more to the dish. (Points confirmed on WW Recipe Builder.)"

Ready In:




  • Cut chicken into 1 inch or slightly smaller cubes. Season with garlic powder and Cajun spice mix.
  • Place nonstick over medium high heat. Give a quick shot of cooking spray and add the seasoned chicken. Cook for a minute and add the andouille sausage. Continue to cook for three to four minutes until the chicken is opaque.
  • Remove chicken and sausage from pan and cover to keep warm. Gently wipe the pan to remove the excess oil. Add the onions and peppers to the pan and cook for four to five minutes.
  • Stir the canned tomatoes and tomato paste into the skillet. Return the chicken and sausage and simmer for six to eight minutes.
  • Serve with hot cooked rice for additional points.

    I really liked this, but afraid my picky DH didn't care for it. That's ok---more leftovers for me to take to work! Made for the I Recommend Tag Game.

    This hits the spot. It is filling, and really good. I used Turkey sausage. Thanks for this keeper.

    Delicious! I didn't have enough chicken, so I supplemented extra andouille. Also, only had 1/2 a red pepper, so I used two stalks of celery. I ended up mixing it with some herbed brown rice, and had to restrain myself from eating the whole thing (I guess it wouldn't be 5 points then, huh?)

    All I can say is Yummy, Yummy, Yummy. This was very easy and a great dinner. Had it along with brown rice and a side salad. Some of the instructions were missing so I just "winged" it. But none the less, this was great. Another WW recipe in the books! Thanks, Toni!


<p>I come from a long line of wonderful cooks and doing my best to hold up that tradition. My great-grandparents owned a coffee shop; my Nana was also a great cook and started the tradition of baking around the holidays, both cookies and fruitcakes. After she died, now a decade ago, our family decided to continue in her honor. The picture above is my mother's (Chef Hot Pans) dining room table just before we packed up our Christmas cookie trays. More that 20 kinds of cookies, many of which are from 'Zaar recipes. <br /> <br />I myself am an amateur cook with a penchant for ethnic foods and spice. Currently reforming my menu in favor of healthy dishes lower in fat with lots of grains and vegetables. My favorite cuisines are Mexican, Southwestern and North African. <br /> <br /> <br />Some of my favorite public cookbooks include:</p> <li>ladypit's <a href=> WW Core Recipes I Have Tried </a> </li> <p>&nbsp;</p> <li>shirl(j)831's <a href=> Can this really be lowfat??? </a> </li> <p>&nbsp;</p> <li>julesong's <a href=> Cooking Light Recipes </a> </li> <p>&nbsp;</p> <li>mariposa13's <a href=> WW &amp; Lowfat Recipes </a> </li> <p><br /><img src= alt=Dirty /> <br /><a href=;current=kitchen-special-hot2-1.jpg target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><img src= alt=Image /><img src= alt=FFF#2 width=50% /> <br /><img src= alt=Image /><img src= alt=Image /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=Adopted /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=PAC /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo /> <br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=ZWT3 /><img src= alt=width=50% /> <br /><img src= alt=/ /></p>
