This Weight Watchers Garlic Chicken Recipe is a favorite for my whole family! Finding meals that the whole family will love can be hard. This falls in line with a low-point dinner on the Weight Watchers plan.
Now, as a mom, I love how easy this is; basically, no prep work and the taste is amazing!!! We have crazy nights with soccer and the kid’s schedule; it is amazing how some nights we manage to get dinner on the table. I must say we will make this again with fried rice! The garlic chicken tastes Chinese cuisine and would have been to go with fried rice!!! The recipe for this I followed came from Food.com.
WHAT IS Weight Watchers?
New to Weight Watchers?? Also known as WW, a weight loss program uses points assigned to food to track and lose weight. When you sign up, you take an assessment that will assign you a point value to eat daily and a weekly allowance. You can carry over 4 points from the day into your weekly allowance, which is handy when you need more points.
I have been on Weight Watchers since 2011. They have had Points Plus Value, WW Smartpoints, blue plan, green plan, purple plan, WW Personal Points, and now Weight Watchers Points. The new plan launched in November 2022 is similar to WW Smartpoints, with some color plans.
No matter the WW plan, they work to help you learn healthy eating habits. I have hit lifetime a couple of times but stopped working the plan and tracking, so the weight does creep back on.
Weight Watchers Garlic Chicken With Brown Sugar Ingredients:
- Chicken Breasts– You could use boneless chicken thighs, but this will give the chicken more calories and higher points on Weight Watchers.
- Minced Garlic
- Brown Sugar
- Olive Oil
- Nonstick Spray
How To Make Weight Watchers Garlic Chicken:
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
Spray a 9X13 pan or sheet pan with non-stick spray, then cover the 9X13 pan or sheet pan with foil and then nonstick spray the foil.
Now funny story with this I didn’t read through all the comments when I first made this to see the tin foil warning. The brown sugar and the juices burned and ruined my pan completely. Trust me, tinfoil and spray under the tin foil, too the foil and sugar can stick as well. See what happened the first time I made this with no foil?
Next, lay your chicken breasts in your baking pan on top of the sprayed tinfoil.
In a small frying pan, warm up your olive oil and add in the minced garlic on med-high heat.
Once the oil-garlic mixture is warm, add the brown sugar and cooking into a thick gooey mixture.
Pour the garlic mixture over the chicken, and use a basting brush to cover the chicken breast completely.
Bake in the oven for about 20-30 minutes until it temps at 160 degrees and is done.
Use a meat thermometer to verify it is 160 degrees for each breast.
Serve with rice or a side salad!!
This chicken is also so good that I eat it just by itself, and the cold chicken is amazing on salads as well!!
On the Weight Watchers plan, my chicken worked to 2 points for a serving. This could be less, depending on how big of a serving you do.
Now you will need to replug with what you deem a serving size and how much your chicken weighs too.
