Southwest chicken frittata

June 17, 2018

With the Weight Watchers freestyle program I think it’s great that you can start of the day with a hearty filling breakfast and barely touch your daily point allowance. That was my goal when this southwest chicken frittata idea popped into my head.. yes that is my day in a nutshell, random recipe creations are always popping into my head haha 😉 This dish is full of flavor and so satisfying, best part is it is just 1 freestyle smart point per serving, and if you tweak it just a little bit you can make it zero points (*see note in directions) a great brunch to serve up or add it to your meal prep plans for breakfast for the week.

  3. Preheat oven to low broil
  4. Stir in your cooked chicken and diced tomatoes. Continue cooking 2-3 minutes.

    We plan to prepare this next weekend ..How can the directions be modified to use either an 8″ x 8″ or 9″ x 13″ pan rather than a skillet ?? Also if we make it in a larger baking dish would you suggest doubling the ingredients ?? thanks !!

      Hi Doris, Sorry I only know how I made it as far as portions etc go, all I can suggest is to try it and see, I think you will have way too much if you double it for the 9×13, my 10 inch skillet was right to the top

    I always want to print your recipes to remember to make them! When I hit the “print” button in the recipe (next to the “Save♥️”, a preview of the print appears for a second then I am returned with no option to print. How can I print your recipes?

      Hi are you trying to print from a tablet? Cause I know you can’t, but from desktop it should work fine

    Do you can make this and then freeze in portions? Wasn’t sure how it would taste. Looks amazing, can’t wait to try it either way. Thank you!

      Hi, in step 3 you will see pre heat oven to low broil , it does most of it’s cooking on the stove, the broil just finishes it off 🙂
