WHAT’S THAT SPELL??
Wednesday night is Zumba night so my crock pot is a lifesaver or Husband would be eating PB&J sandwiches for dinner every Wednesday night. (No, I’m not joking. That’s the only thing he knows how to make.) Needless to say he loves Crock Pot night too.
Since I’m still feeling kinda blah about my last weigh-in, I knew I needed to gather my thoughts and not get complacent. That’s my usual MO when I diet. I wasn’t about to fall in that trap again. So I put the take out menu back that had somehow appeared in my hands and started browsing crock pot recipes…
SIDE NOTE: Does anyone else give themselves mini pep talks about food? *crickets* Ok so just me then… lol
PS- Don’t forget to take the toothpicks out BEFORE you eat it. Just trust me.
Crock Pot Chicken Cordon Bleu
Recipe from WW boards
Makes 4 servings
CB’s change in red= 10 WW+/serving*
1-1/2 to 2 lbs chicken breast, pounded thin (I used 4 frozen chicken breasts, thawed)
4 pieces of ham (I used 8 pieces Canadian bacon**)
4 slices of Swiss or mozzarella cheese (I used LF swiss)
1 can any cream soup (I used cream of mushroom)
1/4 cup milk (I used 2% milk)
* The points per serving may be lower since you aren’t eating all the cream of mushroom sauce. At least I didn’t.
** Check the nutritional information if you choose to use Canadian bacon. Depending on how thin/thick it is cut, it will be different points from mine.
1. Layer ham and cheese on each chicken breast. Roll up and secure with toothpicks.
2. Place chicken in the crockpot.
3. Mix soup with the milk; pour over top of chicken.
4. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours or until chicken is no longer pink.
5. Serve over noodles or rice with the sauce it makes. (Points do not include noodles or rice.)
I served with green bean and brown rice.
Husband rating: A+
He raved about this one and called dibs on the leftovers for lunch tomorrow. He also mentioned that this needs to go in the dinner rotation. I call that a winner.
Wifey rating: A
If you are craving a cordon bleu this will satisfy your craving without the extra calories BUT I will admit I missed the bread crumbs and I REALLY wanted more cheese. Then again, that’s not the point (no pun intended) right? lol
