1. Parmesan Chicken Tenders  

These three-point tendies are a Weight Watchers win. You only need seven ingredients, plus a touch of salt and pepper to taste, to get them on your plate. Panko crumbs and freshly grated parmesan cheese make them sing, and a light dash of garlic powder and Italian seasoning provides a great depth of flavor. I make these when I want quick comfort food that won’t derail my diet.

2. Buffalo Chicken Baked Potato

This Buffalo Chicken Baked Potato is an indulgence at seven points, but not an over-the-top one. Plus, it hits all of those carby, cheesy, and salty notes that most of us crave after a long day at work. Six humble ingredients are all that you need, including shredded chicken (I love to use leftover rotisserie chicken for this), low-fat cream cheese, light Ranch, and some grated cheese. Pack it all into a potato and drizzle on the Franks hot sauce for those classic Buffalo flavors.

3. Pull Apart Pizza Bread

Pull Apart Pizza Bread is a slimmer, healthier alternative to Dominos at roughly five Weight Watchers points per serving. You’ll get those satisfying pizza flavors without the residual guilt and food coma that comes from scarfing down a pie. Plus, it’s super simple to make with five ingredients you probably already have on hand. Pillsbury biscuits are the base, string cheese, turkey pepperoni, and some shredded cheese round off those pizza flavors, and you can even dip it all in marinara sauce without racking up too many points.
