Try this meal for a treat on a weeknight or make it for guests and everyone will be talking about what a fabulous kitchen magician you are! and it doesn’t have to cost a lot of Weight Watchers Points Plus or calories. Weighing in at just 7 points or 307 calories, it’s a great main dish that so many side dishes go with. I added egg to give it a bit of a Chicken Française touch. If you leave the egg out, subtract a point or count it as just 272 calories.
Keeping cubes of pesto on the freezer and adding a dollop of ricotta cheese to it before adding to a hot pot of pasta is a weeknight trick that you’ll want to keep in your back pocket. Roasting vegetables doesn’t take a lot of time and in just 15 minutes you can have this Chicken Piccata from stovetop to table.
Another trick for your kitchen repertoire is to have capers in your fridge. I pick mine up at Costco in a huge jar. It’s much less expensive than that little jar you find in your local grocery store and they’re packed in brine and have a half-life of about forever, so even though you don’t use them by the cup there’s no need to worry about them going bad before you use the jar.
