Chicken has become a staple in our household. Our BBQ Chicken Strips are another creation that we would like to share with you. We meal prep our chicken in the Instant Pot to make our meals easier to put together later in the week. No grill needed for this wonderful meal, you can prepare it right in your kitchen! BBQ Chicken Strips is another Weight Watchers friendly freezer meal we stock up on.
BBQ Chicken Breast
BLUE PLAN: 4 points
GREEN PLAN: 5 points
PURPLE PLAN: 2 Points
To make our BBQ chicken strips, we took two large breasts out of the freezer that had been meal prepped on Sunday. We thawed and cut them up, then threw them in the skillet to brown. In the meantime, we made our zero point BBQ sauce. Serving this on a bed of rice is a great choice if you're following the Weight Watchers Freestyle Plan (1/2 cup of rice is 3 points). Add an ear of corn (zero points!) for a delicious finish, making it 4 points for the entire meal – and you have room for dessert! Once we finished eating, we didn't have room in our bellies for dessert, but our points bank had plenty.
Quick Chicken Meals
Our mission is to provide low point, quick and easy meals that are delicious. We want to see everyone succeed on the Weight Watchers plan, and we will continue to give you our best meals and ideas. Meal prepping ahead of time helps make it easy to track points and portions. One of the best things we have done to ensure we stay on track is to meal prep.
When we meal prep and freeze the meals on Sundays, it makes it so much easier on us throughout the week. Our meals are truly, grab, reheat, and go.
4 points per serving
I estimated this based on rice being 6 points per cup and the BBQ sauce depending on how you make it. I have suggestions for making the sauce 0 points. Smiley's Famous BBQ sauce
If you use cauliflower rice the entire meal is 0 points
