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.

BBQ Chicken Quesadilla – 9sp

Come a Sunday afternoon I often roast a nice big whole chicken that I can pull apart and use throughout the week for lunches and evening meals. It’s a great way to make sure you have fresh ingredients at hand and keep the cost down at the same time. As a result, I’m always looking for new ways to use up said chicken (as you will see by my last Lebanese Salad recipe).

Being a huge fun of pulled pork, I decided that I would give the whole pulled chicken a whirl but by speeding up the process a little. As a result I made a lovely and tasty chipotle BBQ sauce, poured it over the cooked chicken and voila!! The BBQ chicken in this form could be used in so many different ways (in a burger, a thin, with rice, with sweet potato or BNS fries…..) but I decided to try something new.

FAKEAWAY – KFC! – 5sp

Who doesn’t love a good KFC? I know I do but I never allow myself to have it anymore given how calorific it is. Not one to be told I can’t have anything, I decided to create my own. I’ve been experimenting with a few different versions of this recipe and this one is definitely my favourite! It’s really quick and easy and best of all, can just be bunged in the oven and left to sizzle.

Thai Chicken Panang Curry – 13sp including rice

I recently visited my first ever Thai restaurant (having avoided them as a Weight Watcher because of the whole full fat coconut milk danger) and was absolutely bamboozled by the menu. Not wanting to get something I’ve tried before I decided to go for the Panang Curry as it was described as a dryer curry than your regular Thai red curry (so I assumed less fatty coconut milk). What a revelation it was, it was truly amazing!! Full of gorgeous flavour, not too saucy and so moreish it was unbelievable. As soon as I finished I knew it has to go straight to the top of my list of recipes to make Weight Watchers friendly.

Rapid Coriander Chicken Curry – 8sp

This is a really delicious curry which is both really easy to make and doesn’t contain too many different spices/ingredients. The chicken really benefits from marinading in the fridge for a while however I only marinaded mine tonight for around 1 hour (I’m never organised enough to do it the day before) and it was lovely! This recipe requires hardly any preparation and it’s a lovely change to your usual Indian Curry. I served it mine with a small portion of rice and one of Morrison’s mini garlic and coriander pittas (for an extra 5sp, a weight watchers pitta would be great too) and a large dollop of fat free natural yoghurt on top.
