Here’s a good snacking recipe. I made these on the weekend and they were gone instantly. A nice combination of sweet and salty, its the perfect snack for any occasion. Half a cup is worth 2 weight watcher points
4 cups of low sodium pretzels
3 tablespoons of honey
2 teaspoon of low fat margarine
1.5 teaspoon of spice either cinnamon or curry.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place pretzels in a large bowl.
Mix next three ingredients in a microwave dish.
Place dish and microwave and melt.
Remove and pour mixture on the Pretzels.
Bake on a greased baking sheet and bake for 10 mins, flipping them at the half way mark.
So I had some chicken defrosting on the counter and really wanted to try something different. Turns out I had a ton of cabbage in the fridge because of the 0 point cabbage soup I have been making as of late. I thought to myself chicken with cabbage and onions should be a winning combination and it turned out to be true. It’s a whopping 4 weight watcher points for 2 cups. In case your wondering, I do follow the old point system. It worked for me 4 years ago when I started my journey and hasn’t failed me yet. Why mess with a good thing.
1 small onion sliced thinly (about two cups)
4 cups of cabbage
1 cup of cherry tomatoes sliced in half
8 ounces of chicken chopped into bite size pieces (we always use thighs)
3/4 cup of water
.5 tsp of extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp yellow mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds (or black mustard seeds)
2 tsp of garlic
.5 tsp of chilli flakes
Prepare all spices in a small bowl.
Cook chicken in a large pan. Once cooked remove chicken.
In the same pan use the natural oil from the chicken and add the half tsp spoon of oil to the centre of the pan. Let the oil heat up.
Add your bowl of spices and stir until it makes a paste.
Add onions and saute until they are a beautiful carmel color.
Add cabbage, tomatoes and water. Cover and steam cabbage for about 5 remove lid and let the water evaporate.
Once all the water is gone add the chicken just to heat it up. Serve and enjoy. Makes about 5 cups of cabbage.
