Lebanese Chicken & Potatoes - Ww Friendly - 7 Points

"This is a lighter version of a meal that my friend from Lebanon made when we were in college. All the flavor less all the fat. I ran this through the WW recipe builder and it is 7 points. Add green beans and you have an entire meal for 7 points."

Ready In:




  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Cut chicken into bite-size pieces.
  • Cut potatoes into bite-size pieces.
  • Place chicken and potatoes in glass casserole dish.
  • Squeeze the juice out of the lemon into a bowl. Remove the seeds.
  • In same bowl with the lemon juice, add the Splenda, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic. You can add more garlic if you like a stronger taste. Mix all these ingredients together.
  • (The builder in Zaar had a problem recognizing minced garlic. Fresh Garlic will work, but I use the minced garlic that is packaged in a jar).
  • Pour the mixture over the chicken and potatoes and mix well. Make sure that you coat the chicken and potatoes.
  • Place in oven. Cook for about 30 minutes until chicken is done and potatoes are golden. Continue basting during the cooking time.
  • Depending on the size you cut the potatoes and chicken, you cooking time will very - so you will need to check you time.
  • Enjoy.

    Have to say, the first bite--I wasn't a fan. Same with my husband. But we tried a few more bites and it got better and better. I can't wait to make this again. Thanks for posting this.

    Yum! Yum! Yum! This recipe is SO good! Similar to my favorite Greek Roasted Chicken and potatoes...but much easier!

    This is a wonderful easy entrée. I love the tang of the lemon juice and balsamic vinegar. I pared this recipe down to 2 servings and prepared as directed. I did cook it for about 45 minutes in my toaster oven. The potatoes did not get as done as I would have liked, perhaps due to my toaster oven. I will also dice them smaller next time to help them get done faster, or as another reviewer stated, zap for a couple of minutes in the microwave. The chicken was tender and juicy with a refreshing taste, great for only 7 WW pts. I really enjoyed this recipe! Prepared for PAC 2008 Thanks Chef Alice Robertson Clark!

    Perfect weeknight EASY meal.. I didn't use Splenda simply because I didn't have any on hand. I also added in some Johnny's Seasoning salt, and Lawry's Garlic Powder. If I were to make this again to prevent the chicken from drying out do to the longer cooking time needed for cooking the taters I would nuke the spuds for 5-8 mins before adding them to the pan to help speed up the cooking process.. Thanks for the post..

    This was delicous. I also had to leave it in longer, the potatoes weren't cooking, but not a huge deal. I was kindof confused on the instruction to keep basting while it was cooking. There wasn't much liquid in the pan to baste with, so I just kept giving it a stir.....maybe that's what was meant. Yummy dish and felt full on the WW plan.


<p>Hello!! <br />I live in Western Kentucky and work for a Private Label Food Company. We make cookies, crackers, sauces, spreads, drink mixes and nuts. Lots of good things. I travel for my job, so my time is limited in the kitchen at home. <br /><br />Recipezaar is one of my favorite sites. It is a treat for me to find a new recipe and try it out. <br /><br />You can see from my recipe reviews that I switch from yummy high fat treats to lower calorie meals. I have to watch it. Too many of the treats are a no no. (ha ha ) <br /><br />When trying a posted recipe, I make it just as posted. One of my pet peeves on this site is reviewers that change the recipe and ingredients and then give it a bad rating. <br /><br />I have one son. He is 11 years old. He occasionally helps me in the kitchen. His favorite foods are Italian and classic American Diner.</p>
