Buffalo Chicken Taquitos – 12sp

A Taquito is something I had never tasted or even heard of before I went visited Mexico and since it has been a whole year since we jetted off, I thought it was time to come up with another recipe inspired by my time there.

A Taquito is simply a rolled up, stuffed tortilla. Usually fried, these lovely creations are rolled tighter and so are thinner than an enchilada, and the top is not covered in sauce in the same way an enchilada would be.

Pick ‘n’ Mix Chimichurri Pork and Prawn Tacos, Chimichurri Avocado Dip, Spicy Rice and Salsa – 12sp

One of my lovely friends got me a bottle of Chimichurri dressing for Christmas and, knowing how nice it was in a steak recipe I previously created, I decided to try and create something new. After asking my OH what meat he fancied, his response was ‘pork, or prawns, or both’ so I decided to give both a whirl. If you are making this at home, feel free to make one or the other. I’ve posted the points for both so you can decide which fits in best with your day – a bit of a pick and mix! If you have the points left you might even fancy both.

Chicken, Bacon and Leek Pasta – 12sp

I don’t use leeks as often as I would like so this week when I picked some up, I decided to pop together a new recipe to try and get me cooking them more often. Leek paired with chicken and bacon is a classic combo often found in a chicken pie. The combination here with pasta is delicious. It is both lovely and silky and creamy whilst not being too naughty. The introduction of pesto really lifts the flavour too. If you fancy you could use the sauce below as a pie mixture. Simply let it cool and then pop into individual pie dishes, top with the pastry of your choice and then bake. I like it as a pasta though as its quick and oh so satisfying.

Chicken, Mushroom and Spinach Risotto – 12sp

After the success of my last of my last experiment with Heck Chicken Sausages I decided to give them another go and come up with another recipe. This time I decided to go for a risotto and I have to say, these sausages are becoming one of my new favourites! If you can’t get a hold of the sausages in this recipe, you could replace it with diced chicken breast (around 360g) and fry this first instead of the sausages.

Sticky Chicken Wings – 12sp

Whenever we go out to eat, my other half always chooses chicken wings if they are on the menu so when he decided to make a valentines meal on Friday, he thought he would try and make his own from a recipe he saw online. Since then I’ve adapted the recipe further to suit my own tastes and Weight Watching needs and it is just as delicious (and much nicer than any wings I’ve had in a restaurant)!
