I love slow cooker recipes. Just put it all in a pot and walk away until dinner. Works well for those busy days. For me personally I like the extra time I get working out in the afternoons not having to worry about starting dinner. 1/2 cup is 3 weight watcher points (old) serve with half a weight watchers pita and side salad and you have a full balanced dinner. Just make sure to count you points.
1 1/2 lb. raw Boneless Lean Chicken Thighs or Breast (I personally like and used Thighs)
1 can Tomato Paste (I used Garlic and Herb)
1 1/4 cup of water
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tbsp. plus 2 tsp. brown sugar (not packed)
2 tbsp. plus 2 tsp. cider vinegar
2 tsp. garlic powder
Red pepper flakes
Place all ingredients except the chicken in the crock pot. Stir until mixed.
Add chicken and coat well with the sauce.
Cover and cook on high for 3 – 4 hours or on low for 7 – 8 hours, until chicken is fully cooked.
Remove all the chicken and place it in a bowl. Shred each piece using two forks.
Return the shredded chicken to the crock pot, and mix well with the sauce.
The creator of this recipe is my father in-law. On my very first camping trip with my hubby’s family, my father in law made this dish from the fish he caught in the lake. I am not a fisher so I just buy snapper to recreate it. This is a really simple dish with simple ingredients, which makes it perfect for the lake. The total point value for the foil package is 4 points. If your not using snapper then points may increase. You will have to know what fish is in the lake you are camping at and reference it to the Generic Weight Watcher points list to see the point value. Note one foil packet is one serving. If your fish is larger just accommodate the ingredients.
4oz Snapper Filet (or fish caught from the lake)
1/4 Red Pepper cut into cubes
1/2 Onion cut into cubes
1/4 Pineapple bits (canned or fresh, canned is easier while camping)
1 tsp Ketchup
1 tsp Garlic Minced
1/2 tbsp Sweet Chili Sauce
1 tsp Garlic Chili Sauce (Sriracha)
1/2 tbsp oyster sauce
2 tbsp of pineapple juice
MIx Ketchup, Garlic, Sweet Chili Sauce, and Pineapple juice.
Place all ingredients and sauce in a foil packet. It’s best if you place the fish on top of the vegetables.
Cook on an open flame for 15 mins. Until the fish is white and flakey when the packet is opened. You can also cook this dish in the oven for 15 mins.
Here’s a simple recipe that uses simple ingredients most of which can be found in your pantry. I was wondering what to make for dinner and really want meatballs so I looked through some cookbooks and got the idea to make these. They are 1 weight point per meatball and they are super yummy. Completely 100% hubby approved. Serve with a nice side of rice and mixed vegetables for a healthy dinner with the family.
1 large Egg White
1/2 cup of Rice Krispies
2 tablespoons of Ketchup
2 tsp of freshly minced Ginger or Ginger in a jar
1 tablespoon of finely chopped onion
1 tsp of Horseradish
1 tsp of Low Sodium Soy Sauce
1 tsp of Balsamic Vinegar
1/2 pound of Extra Lean Ground Beef
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix.
Roll mixture into ten 1 – 1.5 inch balls and place in a greased pan (I use my stoneware since I don’t need to grease it and it cooks evenly throughout).
