There are so many reasons to love the Weight Watchers program. Since you’re counting your food intake by SmartPoints, you don’t have to keep track of your calories. In fact, the points take care of all of your macros (including protein and carbohydrates), so all you need to do is stay under your daily point goal! The program does leave things rather wide-open, though, which can make it hard to decide which recipe you want to make. Well, if you’re in the mood for chicken, look no further than these Weight Watchers chicken recipes.
This collection includes some of our favorite recipes on the site. They’re wildly popular because they take boring-old chicken and turn it into something flavorful and fantastic. These Weight Watchers chicken recipes are guaranteed to satisfy your palate (and, your family’s too). We especially love number 8 – it’s like a dream come true that I can eat something that cheesy on a diet!

There’s so much to love about this low-points dinner. It’s not only full of flavor, but it’s ready in fewer than 15 minutes, and you can make it in a single pan. That means less clean-up for you!
2. Clean Eating Chicken Fried Rice (6 SmartPoints)
Once the rice is cooked, this dish comes together in only 10 minutes. That’s less time than it would take you to drive to your favorite take-out joint (and, it’s much, much healthier, too). How great is that!

I love that I can eat nachos on my Weight Watchers plan! These clean-eating nachos taste great and only take 10 minutes to throw together.

Forget the takeout and make a healthier version of your favorite Asian-style sesame chicken dish. Since the chicken is cut into thin strips, it only takes a few minutes to bring this dish together.
