Most of us don't have a lot of time on busy weeknights between work, after school activities, homework, and our daily to-do list. For those busy nights, these recipes will get dinner on the the table in under 30 minutes. They involve minimal prep work and are easy to get on the table. Plus lots of them are one pan dinners where everything cooks together for a really easy meal. Need a quick and easy side dish? When we are busy, I always rely on either frozen rice/grains from the supermarket or pre-cooked grains I have made on the weekend. Microwave baked potatoes and sweet potatoes are also a good option.
Another great method for making healthy and low point chicken dishes is to use your slow cooker. Not only does slow cooking chicken add tons of flavor since everything has time to combine, it is also a hands off cooking method that allows you to make dinner when you are out of the house. To make sure your chicken comes out juicy and flavorful, you want to make sure that you layer in lots of flavor in the recipe. Using garlic, onion, diced tomatoes, herbs, and spices are all great ways to impart tons of flavor.
We all love chicken on the grill but many of use rely on store bought marinades and dressings to add flavor. Unfortunately many of these are packed with sugar and add lots of calories to what would normally be a healthy meal. Instead of relying on these store bought sauces, instead make your own homemade marinades using fresh ingredients. They taste just as good but are much more Weight Watchers friendly and better for you in general since they don't include preservatives, chemicals, and other ingredients that aren't natural.
