Never make another boring chicken recipe.
Here’s 27 weight watchers chicken recipes guaranteed to turn your ho-hum chicken dinner into something spectacular.
These are 27 of the best weight watchers chicken recipes from my favorite healthy food bloggers.
Chicken is a wonderful healthy protein to make the star of any main meal.
According to Healthline, “Chicken is highly nutritious and a good source of protein. Adding chicken to your diet may help support weight loss, muscle growth, and bone health.”
Weight Watchers recognizes the value of chicken as a part of a healthy diet.
Is chicken a zero point food on weight watchers?
Skinless boneless chicken breast is a zero point food. It doesn’t matter if the chicken breast is whole or ground. If it is off the bone and skinless it counts as a zero point food.
If you marinate the chicken breast or if you cook it in oil, the oil or the marinade will cost you points, but the chicken breast still counts for zero.
Extra lean ground chicken that is at least 98% fat free is also a zero point food.
If you use other parts of the chicken, or use the chicken skin, then chicken will cost you points. (But typically not very many, that’s why chicken is the key ingredient in so many low point foods).
The easiest way to find out the latest weight watchers points is just plug it into your WW app.
I hope you enjoy trying these amazing ww chicken recipes as much as I did.

You’ll finish by removing from heat and stirring in shredded cheddar cheese.
Hungry yet? This taco mac is so hearty and satisfying, while keeping points in mind.
