Chicken Chili

3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
1 48 oz jar Northern Beans
1 48 oz jar Salsa (mild or med)
2 11 oz cans corn
1 to 2 tsp. chili powder, optional
1 to 2 tsp. cumin, optional

Spray large soup pot with nonstick cooking spray and brown chicken. Salt and pepper to taste. Dump in beans, salsa, corn and spices. (I don't drain the beans or corn) simmer for 30-45 minutes. (Add a little water if too thick) Enjoy topped with nonfat sour cream and/or lowfat shredded cheese. Makes about 16 cups.

Great way to use up your turkey & chicken leftovers. You can make half this recipe with great results.

Four 1 point flour fajitas
8 oz diced cooked chicken
2 C. fat free cheese
4 slices cooked turkey bacon
salsa
8 T sour cream
Lettuce
Tomato
Taco Sauce
Make the following layers:

flour fajita -
2 T cheese
2 oz chicken
1 slice crumbled bacon
Drizzle with salsa
2 T cheese
flour fajita

Do this for all four fajitas. Bake in a 350 oven for approx 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Slice each fajita quesadilla into four pieces and put on plate. Top with lettuce, tomato, sour cream and taco sauce. 4 servings at 8 points per serving

Serve with 1/2 C brown rice and 1/2 C refried beans for additional 3 points.

Tip - You can use less cheese. I didn't use that much but it's easier to count the points this way. Also, skip the turkey bacon if you don't want that point.

Enjoy!

Chicken Quesadillas

1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups chopped green bell pepper
1 cup minced purple onion
2 teaspoons cumin
2 cups cooked chicken breast
1 14.5 ounce can no salt added diced tomatoes -- drained
1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
8 8 inch fat-free flour tortillas
3/4 cup shredded reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese
butter flavored cooking spray
fresh cilantro sprigs -- optional

Place oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add chopped pepper and onion; cook 3 minutes, stirring often. Add cumin, and cook 1 minute, stirring often. Add chicken and tomato; cook 3 minutes, stirring often. Stir in minced cilantro, salt, and ground pepper.

Place about 1/2 cup chicken mixture on half of each tortilla. Sprinkle cheese evenly over turkey mixture on tortillas; fold tortillas in half. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; place over medium-high heat until hot. Add 2 filled tortillas; cook 30 seconds on each side or until lightly browned. Set aside, and keep warm. Repeat procedure with remaining 6 tortillas. Garnish with cilantro sprigs, if desired. Serve immediately.

Serves 8. 4 WW points per serving.

NOTES : I make this recipe using the George Foreman grill. I simply grill the folded tortillas on the grill until the cheese is melted and they are lightly browned.

If no grill, use a skillet.

I tried this dish as written in the cookbook and my family didn't like it at all. I thought it was OK but decided to alter it to suit my family's taste. They thought the bottom tortillas were too mushy and wanted bigger portions for their plates. This is what I came up with for the same point value:

Ginney's Chicken Enchilada Casserole
(A modified version of the recipe in WW Simply the Best)

6 servings at 5 points each

5 fat free corn tortillas
3 cups cooked chicken breast, diced
2 cups frozen corn kernels, thawed
4 cups cooked pinto beans (or 2 - 15 oz. cans, drained)
1 large onion, chopped
1/2 green pepper, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 - 15 oz. cans stewed tomatoes with green chiles
1 cup shredded reduced fat chedar cheese

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 13 x 9 baking pan with cooking spray.

Layer the chicken, corn, beans, onion, green pepper, garlic, and one can of tomatoes. Cover with the tortillas and pour the remaining can of tomatoes over the top.

Cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle with the cheese. Bake for 10 minutes, uncovered, or until the cheese is melted.

For a meatless version,just leave out the chicken breast. It still supplies complete protein with the combination of corn, beans, and cheese but drops to a mere 3 points per serving!

I don't have the ability to figure the changes in fiber, etc. but used the WW Supermarket Companion to refigure according to points. If I am wrong, please let me know. My two guys are much happier with this version, of course they add salsa, sour cream, and more cheese to it!

Angry Super Easy Chicken Tacos

1 pkg - Louis Rich Southwest Chicken Strips
2 Fat Free Tortillas
1/4 cup Kraft Fat Free Cheddar Cheese
Veggies - Green onion, tomato, lettuce, peppers (green, yellow, red), etc.

Take 3-4 strips of chicken and place them in the middle of a tortilla on a microwavable plate. Put 1/2 the cheese on top of that. Microwave 25-30 seconds or until cheese melts. Place veggies on top and eat as you would a taco or roll like a buritto. Do the same for the 2nd tortilla. I make mine one at a time so the meat stays hot. Very filling!

Pts depends on tortillas and fillings but mine came out to be 4.5 pts each.

Options - Can add black olives, fat free sour cream, fat free refried beans but adjust points.
