Chicken Amandine - BCB Site

Serves 9
4 pts per serving (see note at bottom)

16 oz raw chicken, cut into bite sized cubes
1 package (6 oz) Stove Top chicken stuffing
1/2 tsp poultry seasoning
1 1/2 c water
1 can 98% ff cream of chicken soup
1/2 c milk
2 c frozen green beans
1/2 c rf shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 400. Place chicken in 13x9 baking dish. Sprinkle with seasoning. Combine stuffing mix with water. Mix soup and milk until combined. Stir in green beans. Spread over chicken and sprinkle with cheese. Top with stuffing mixture. Bake 30 mins or until chicken is heated through.

Recipe also calls for 1/4 c toasted sliced almonds. If using, sprinkle on top of stuffing before baking and adjust points. (if you use the almonds, 1/4 c sliced = 3.5 pts

Recipe also says this serves 6, but I always divide a 13x9 dish into 9 servings. Points for 6 servings are 6

9 servings w/out almonds = 4 pts
9 servings w/almonds = 4.5 pts
6 servings w/out almonds = 6 pts
6 servings w/almonds = 6.5

ok I am a dope because 2 of the 3 recipes I listed as meatless have ham in them...

I think you could go without the ham in the Navy Bean Soup and even add some of the "smoke" flavoring if they still make it but not sure about the Burrito one...but I suppose you could also use chicken or lean gr beef in it as well....hmmmm - so forget about meatless...

Roasted Red Pepper Tuna Salad - WW site

POINTS® Value: 2
Servings: 4
Preparation Time: 10 min
Cooking Time: 0 min
Level of Difficulty: Easy

1/4 cup fat-free mayonnaise
1 Tbsp fat-free sour cream
1 Tbsp dill, fresh, chopped
2 medium scallion(s), finely chopped
1/4 cup roasted red peppers, chopped (packed without oil)
12 oz water-packed tuna fish, drained

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl until well mixed. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours. Yields about 1/2 cup per serving.

I think this is CORE as written but if we changed the FF to LF mayonaise, it would add .5 per serving.

Balsamic Chicken with Pears

6 chicken breasts halves (3 to 4-ounce each), boneless and skinless
Salt & freshly ground black pepper
1 tbls EVOO
1 shallot (chopped)
2 medium pears, peeled, cored, & sliced
1 cup chicken broth or stock (all fat removed)
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tbls sugar
2 tsp cornstarch
1/4 cup dried tart cherries

* Pat chicken dry w/ paper towels. One at a time, place the chicken breast between two sheets of plastic wrap. Using a meat mallet, carefully pound the chicken breasts to a uniform thickness of approximately 1/2-inch. Season on both sides with salt and pepper.

*In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, add the olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the chicken &saute, turning once, for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Remove from heat and transfer to a platter, cover, and keep warm.

*To the same pan, add the shallot & saute over medium-high heat for 2 minutes or until soft; decrease heat to medium & add the pears. Continue sauteing, stirring occasionally for 3 to 4 minutes, until the pears are soft & golden brown.

*To prepare the sauce, combine chicken broth, balsamic vinegar, sugar, & cornstarch in a small bowl. Pour over the pear mixture; add the cherries. Increase heat to high & simmer, stirring frequently for 6 to 8 minutes or until the sauce thickens slightly. Return the chicken & any juices to the pan. Bring the mixture back to a simmer; decrease heat to medium. Cook for 10 minutes (or until a meat thermometer registers an internal temperature of 165 degrees). Remove chicken from heat.

*Place chicken on individual serving plates or on a large platter. Using a slotted spoon, mound the fruit over the top. Spoon the sauce over the fruit and around the chicken. Serve immediately.

Easy Chicken Pot Pie - WW site (Community Recipes)

I think the Great Value Brand is the Walmart brand so thinking any brand will do!

Servings | 8
Estimated POINTS® value per serving | 4
Course | Main Meals

2 cans Great Value brand Buttermilk Biscuits
2 cans Great Value brand Vegetable Medley
2 cans Great Value brand 98% FF Cream of Chicken Soup
2 can (12.5 oz each) Hormel Premium Chunk Breast of Chicken in water
2 teaspoons dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Drain vegetable medley and canned chicken. Mix vegetables, chicken, soup, and seasonings until well combined.

Spray 9 X 13 inch pan with non-stick cooking spray. Pour mixture into pan. Slightly flatten biscuits. Place biscuits on top of mixture.

Bake about 25 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown. Serve immediately

Patty's Note

It states 8 servings which is kind of strange for the 9X13 pan so I am thinking if the total points is 32, you could divide the pan up a few ways -

9 servings = 3.75 pts
6 servings = 5.5 pts

Very Veggie-tarian Chili Wraps - WW Site

POINTS® Value: 7
Servings: 4
Preparation Time: 25 min
Cooking Time: 60 min
Level of Difficulty: Moderate

Our homemade vegetarian chili is so tasty and easy, you'll want to make extra for nachos or fajitas later in the week.

1 tsp olive oil
1 small onion(s), chopped
1 medium garlic clove(s), chopped
1 1/4 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground red pepper
1 small carrot(s), coarsely chopped
1 small stalk celery, coarsely chopped
15 oz canned white beans, drained and rinsed (can also use kidney beans or black beans)
7 1/4 oz canned diced tomatoes, fire roasted tomatoes with green chiles preferred (or maybe Rotel?)
1/4 tsp table salt
4 large burrito-size wheat flour tortilla(s)
1/4 cup light sour cream
1/4 cup low-fat shredded cheddar cheese

In a medium pot, warm oil over moderate heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 7 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

Add chili powder, cumin, cinnamon and pepper to pot, stirring to combine. Add carrot, celery, beans and tomatoes; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 1 hour; stir in salt.

Heat tortillas in microwave according to package directions or in a nonstick skillet over medium heat until brown spots begin to form, turning once, about 1 minute.

Spread 3/4 cup of chili down the center of each tortilla, leaving 1/2-inch border at each end. Top each with 1 tablespoon each of sour cream and cheese. Tuck in ends of tortillas, roll and enjoy. Yields 1 wrap per serving.

Will have to try this one this week:

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 4 oz can diced smoked green chilis
1/2 onion, sliced thinly
carne asada seasoning

Take two sheets of foil, and place 1/4 of the onion and green chilis in the center. Place the chicken breasts on top, and sprinkle generously w/carne asada seasoning. Place the remaining onion and green chilis on top and form a pouch w/foil. Place on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 30-35 mins.

I just counted the points as you would for chicken breast 4 oz = 3 pts

Cheddar Cheese Soup - WW site

POINTS® Value: 4
Servings: 4
Preparation Time: 15 min
Cooking Time: 15 min
Level of Difficulty: Moderate

Cheese soup might sound off-limits, but simply substitute a few reduced-fat and fat-free ingredients for their full-fat counterparts and you can enjoy this rich, creamy smooth soup any time!

2 tsp olive oil
1/2 cup onion(s), yellow, chopped
3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
2 cup fat-free chicken broth
1 1/2 cup fat-free skim milk
7 oz low-fat cheddar or colby cheese, about 1 3/4 cups
1/8 tsp table salt, or to taste
1/8 tsp black pepper, or to taste
1 tsp paprika

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat; add onion and cook until soft, about 2 minutes. Add flour and stir to coat. Add chicken broth; bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until soup thickens, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add milk and return to a boil, stirring constantly.

Working in batches, puree soup in a blender until smooth; return puree to pan and reheat soup to boiling. Remove pan from heat and whisk in cheese; stir until melted (if cheese does not completely melt, cook over low heat for 1 minute, stirring constantly, until melted); season to taste with salt and pepper.

Ladle 1 1/4 cups of soup into each of 4 bowls and sprinkle each with 1/4 teaspoon of paprika.

2 cup cooked brown rice, regular or instant, kept hot
1/2 cup frozen green peas, thawed
3 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce

Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set pan over medium-high heat. Add egg whites and cook, until scrambled, stirring frequently, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.

Offheat, recoat skillet with cooking spray and place back over medium-high heat. Add scallions and garlic; sauté 2 minutes. Add chicken and carrots; sauté until chicken is golden brown and cooked through, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes.

Very Veggie-tarian Chili Wraps - WW Site

POINTS® Value: 7
Servings: 4
Preparation Time: 25 min
Cooking Time: 60 min
Level of Difficulty: Moderate

Our homemade vegetarian chili is so tasty and easy, you'll want to make extra for nachos or fajitas later in the week.

1 tsp olive oil
1 small onion(s), chopped
1 medium garlic clove(s), chopped
1 1/4 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground red pepper
1 small carrot(s), coarsely chopped
1 small stalk celery, coarsely chopped
15 oz canned white beans, drained and rinsed (can also use kidney beans or black beans)
7 1/4 oz canned diced tomatoes, fire roasted tomatoes with green chiles preferred - OR maybe Rotel tomatoes with green chiles?
1/4 tsp table salt
4 large burrito-size wheat flour tortilla(s)
1/4 cup light sour cream
1/4 cup low-fat shredded cheddar cheese

In a medium pot, warm oil over moderate heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 7 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

Add chili powder, cumin, cinnamon and pepper to pot, stirring to combine. Add carrot, celery, beans and tomatoes; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 1 hour; stir in salt.

Heat tortillas in microwave according to package directions or in a nonstick skillet over medium heat until brown spots begin to form, turning once, about 1 minute.

Spread 3/4 cup of chili down the center of each tortilla, leaving 1/2-inch border at each end. Top each with 1 tablespoon each of sour cream and cheese. Tuck in ends of tortillas, roll and enjoy. Yields 1 wrap per serving.

Patty note

I know for some of my tiny friends who have low daily points this may be high for dinner but the serving could be cut back or tortilla could be left out and just chili in a bowl.
