Dijon-Dill Chicken & Noodle

7 comments

I found this delicious 4 point recipe on weightwatchers.com.  It’s the perfect 30-minute (even a bit less!) that serves two (or yourself twice!). 

Ingredients:014

  • 4 oz boneless skinless chicken breast cut into thin bite size strips (I used about 4 oz of boneless skinless chicken tenderloins cut into bite size pieces…same darn thing!)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion…again, I’m allergic to fresh onion so I have to use dehydrated
  • 1 can of Progresso Light Vegetable & Noodle Soup
  • 2 tbsp of Dijon Mustard
  • 1/8 tsp of dried dill weed
  • 1/2 cup uncooked wide egg noodles (1 1/2 oz)
  • 2 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 1 oz fat free cream cheese

Heat a medium sized non-stick skillet & add chicken & onion.  Cook for about 6 minutes until chicken is cooked through and onions are tender (or in my case, slightly browned).  Make sure to stir frequently

Next stir in the soup, dill weed, & mustard….increase the heat to high and bring to a boil

017

Once it has come to a boil (this doesn’t take long) add in your egg noodles and let it come to a boil again (once again this only took seconds).  Then turn your heat down to medium and cover, let it cook for about 6 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Now add the 2 cups of broccoli.  Keep stirring it frequently until broccoli is tender.  The recipe says about 3-4 minutes…I had in there for 6 and it was still not quite done.  I think next time I would cook the broccoli ahead of time, or maybe roast it and then add it in at the end.

Once the broccoli is cooked, remove from heat and add in the 1 oz of FF cream cheese & stir & WALLA….

You have a delicious & healthy meal for two!!  Each 1 1/2 cup serving is 4 points.  Even the boyfriend really liked this one!  Next time I think I might try to add some mushrooms to it as well.  Enjoy!!

Also, on Super Bowl Sunday, I made two other WW recipe’s that are their site.  Unfortunately due to my weekend activities, I could not find all the energy to photograph each one.  I made ‘chicken poppers’ & ‘Honey Mustard Chicken Bites’.  Both were very tasty…we probably would have eaten all of them if we didn't load up on junk before hand. :-/

This is how they turned out:

If anyone would like the recipes, just let me know!  Next I’m looking for a really good WW-friendly brownie recipe….anyone have any good suggestions??

  1. This one is not bad: http://www.womanvfood.com/2010/01/unbelievably-good-low-fat-brownies.html

    Or you could always add a can of pumpkin puree to a box mix of brownies!

    I've also heard of black bean brownies and there's a recipe on WW but I have yet to try it.

  2. Try No Pudge Fudge brownies. Most supermarkets have them, it's a mix in a pink box. They are made with yogurt.

  3. Suzie, if you have access to the WW eTools, there is a recipe for Black Bean Brownies that are 3 pts. I haven't tried them, but hear they are very good. Also, I just posted a 3 pt Banana Nut muffin recipe on my blog. These are really good and healthy!! Think bananas and whole wheat. Doesn't get much better than that. I am definately going to give that chicken dish a shot. It looks scrumptious
