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.

Chicken Alfredo (6 points)

This is a modified from the Campbell's Soup recipe book. My mother-in-law found it and we were so shocked that it was so low points and so filling.
Chicken Alfredo
(4 servings, 6pts each)

  • 1/2 package of linguine (8 oz uncooked)
  • 1 cup Fresh or frozen Broccoli floweretes (I like to make it more filling, I use 2 1/2 cups broccoli
  • 1- 8oz boneless skinless Chicken breast
  • 1 can- Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 1/2 cup milk (2% or healthier)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper
Prepare pasta according to directions on package. When there is only 4 minutes remaining, add the broccoli to the pasta and water. In a skillet, on med heat, cook up the chicken chopped into small bites. Make sure you spray the pan with a non cal cooking spray. Once chicken is browned, drain, add soup, milk, cheese, pepper. Melt and mix it all together.  Drain pasta and broccoli, then add to the skillet. Mix it all well and serve.

Ideas to cut more fat and points: Use Skim milk, use the light Cream of Mushroom Soup, use more broccoli and less meat. 
Sorry again for no picture. We've made it so many times now that I keep forgetting to take a picture. Maybe someday.
