Purpose of this blog is for me to try out recipes from my Weight Watchers cookbooks and hopefully I can find some really yummy, low point recipes to share. But this site is NOT an official Weight Watchers site.

Glazed Chicken Strips-6 points

The recipe calls for only 5 oz of chicken cut into cubes. I chose instead to use one 8 oz chicken breast cut into 4 strips. The points already are adjusted, if you only use the 5 oz it is 4 points per serving instead of 6 points. This recipe comes from a book where every recipe is made for only two servings and to be 30 minute or less meals. Other than the change I made and already mentioned it is the same recipe as in the book.
Glazed Chicken (for two)
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 2 tsp ketchup
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 1tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1 garlic clove, minced (or 1 1/2 tsp jar minced garlic)
  • 1 80z chicken breast, sliced into strips
  • 1 cup cooked rice
In a small bowl, mix well the honey, ketchup, soy sauce, lemon juice, ginger, and garlic. Place chicken and mixture in a plastic bag, put in fridge to marinate for about 30 minutes (I don't think longer would hurt if you wanted to make it up prior and let sit in fridge overnight).
Fast way- place in microwaveable dish and microwave on high for 2 minutes, stir, cook longer if needed. Let stand for a minute. Serve chicken over 1/2 cup of rice.
Long way- Place marinated chicken in glass baking dish. Bake chicken at 350 for 20 minutes, or until fully cooked. Serve over 1/2 c of rice.
Suggestions- serve along side veggie. We did steamed zucchini with 1 tsp of Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top. Also to spice up the rice you could 1- use the remainder of mixture over the rice or 2- add 2 tbs of Crazens to the rice.
