Ultimate Chicken Cookbook
While losing weight isn’t only about what you eat, Weight Watchers realizes the critical role it plays in your success and overall good health. That’s why our philosophy is to offer great-tasting, easy recipes that are nutritious as well as delicious. We make every attempt to use wholesome ingredients and to ensure that our recipes fall within the recommendations of the U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans for a diet that promotes health and reduces the risk for disease. If you have special dietary needs, consult with your health-care professional for advice on a diet that is best for you, then adapt these recipes to meet your specific nutritional needs.
To achieve these good-health goals and get the maximum satisfaction from the foods you eat, we suggest you keep the following information in mind while preparing our recipes:
Weight Watchers 360° and Good Nutrition
• Recipes in this book have been developed for Weight Watchers members who are following Weight Watchers 360°, as well as anyone else interested in smart weight loss. PointsPlus® values are given for each recipe. They’re assigned based on the amount of protein, carbohydrates, fat, and fiber contained in a single serving of a recipe.
• Recipes include approximate nutritional information: they are analyzed for Calories (Cal), Total Fat, Saturated Fat (Sat Fat), Trans Fat, Cholesterol (Chol), Sodium (Sod), Carbohydrates (Carb), Dietary Fiber (Fib), Protein (Prot), and Calcium (Calc). The nutritional values are calculated by registered dietitians, using nutrition analysis software.
• Substitutions made to the ingredients will alter the per-serving nutritional information and may affect the
Our recipes meet Weight Watchers Good Health Guidelines for eating lean proteins and fiber-rich whole grains and for having at least five servings of vegetables and fruits and two servings of low-fat or fat-free dairy products a day, while limiting your intake of saturated fat, sugar, and sodium.
• Health agencies recommend limiting sodium intake. To stay in line with this recommendation, we keep sodium levels in our recipes reasonably low; to boost flavor, we often include fresh herbs or a squeeze of citrus instead of salt. If you don’t have to restrict your sodium, feel free to add a touch more salt as desired.

Calculations Not What You Expected?
• You might expect some of the PointsPlus values in this book to be lower when some of the foods they’re made from, such as fruits and vegetables, have no PointsPlus values. Fruit and veggies have no PointsPlus values when served as a snack or part of a meal, like a cup of berries with a sandwich. But if these foods are part of a recipe, their fiber and nutrient content are incorporated into the recipe calculations. These nutrients can affect the PointsPlus value.
• Alcohol is included in our PointsPlus calculations. Because alcohol information is generally not included on nutrition labels, it’s not an option to include when using the hand calculator or the online calculator. But since we include alcohol information that we get from our nutritionists, you might notice discrepancies between the PointsPlus values you see in our recipes, and the values you get using the calculator. The PointsPlus values listed for our recipes are the most accurate values.
