Weight Watchers Recipes with SmartPoints

Weight Watchers has its own program where instead of calorie counting, they use SmartPoints which are far smarter than the former. The SmartPoints are determined using calories, saturated fat, sugar, and protein. Foods that are higher in sugar and/or saturated fat are higher in SmartPoints values, and foods that are higher in lean protein are lower in SmartPoints values.

The good news is that most fruits and vegetables have a SmartPoints value of 0.

ZeroPoint foods are exactly what they sound like – foods that have zero SmartPoints value. Why? These nutritional powerhouses form the basis of a healthy eating pattern. You can eat ZeroPoint foods without measuring or tracking and still lose weight. This is because they’re less likely to be overeaten than other foods. There are some exceptions for starchy foods like peas, corn, potatoes, and avocados. It is also good to know that protein lowers the SP value. Furthermore, when it comes to calories, 100 calories worth of cookies doesn’t have the same nutritional value as 100 calories of turkey, tofu, or veggies. Two meals might contain the same number of calories, but have a very different SmartPoints value. But with all that said, having a high SmartPoints does not necessarily mean that a food is “bad”, since, in retrospect, no food is bad. It just means that we need to balance the food we consume so that the SmartPoints will be lowered.

But how many SmartPoints should you have? On Weight Watcher’s program, you will get a personalized amount of Daily SmartPoints, plus some extra Weekly SmartPoints for those days when you need a cushion. The amount of SmartPoints you get is based on your age, height, weight, and sex to ensure that you reach your weight-loss goals. But generally, the ideal and common SmartPoints is to not go over 30 SP a day.


Weight Watchers Chicken and Stuffing Crockpot Recipe

Are you looking for a super simple Weight Watchers chicken recipe? If you are, you will love this recipe. It’s quick and tasty!

I got this excellent, super easy Weight Watchers Chicken recipe with Stuffing for the crockpot aka a slow cooker from my mom. It’s comfort food without a million calories. My mom once lost 110 pounds on Weight Watchers, so needless to say I believe in the system after seeing the results first hand.

I have personally never done the program, but I do love many of the recipes. I did do a weight loss program last year, Optavia and ended up losing 36 pounds. For me this was massive. I had just hit the highest weight of my life and my now ex-husband had just walked out on us. I needed to make a change, I had to make a change.

I felt immensely proud of myself for losing that weight and still do. I enjoy the program so much I became an Optavia health coach. So, if you are looking for a program email me. The program is not for everyone, but for busy moms like me, it’s ideal.

My friend Renee, from Good Enough Mother, once asked me why I would work out and watch my eating week after week, only to blow it on a week for vacation or holiday eating. I realized what she meant and now even during the holidays we try to eat better.


280+ Weight Watchers Crock-Pot Recipes with SmartPoints

In December of 2017, Lady Heidi decided to officially join Weight Watchers and make the change to a healthier lifestyle and lose some weight. While we already had some Weight Watchers friendly recipes on the blog before this time (and they are included here), Heidi decided that she was going to make a concerted effort to add even more going forward.

We are currently in the process of updating the points on our recipes to the new FreeStyle plan that rolled out with Weight Watchers in early December of 2017 (it was the catalyst to motivate Heidi to join). The new FreeStyle plan now offers over 200 foods that are ZERO SmartPoints (just about all fruits and veggies, white meat chicken and turkey and seafood are now zero points!…how exciting is that!)

Below you will find the recipes on this site that we have ran through the Weight Watchers recipe builder and calculated the SmartPoints on. Because sometimes the exact ingredients we use in a recipe are slightly different than the ingredients you use in a recipe we do however suggest that you run the recipe through the Recipe Builder on your own using the exact ingredient you use when cooking.

And of course, we are not nutritionists or dietitians or doctors and cannot give medical advice on Weight Loss. Not all of our recipes here at Crock-Pot Ladies are Weight Watchers friendly. In fact we are only listing here the recipes that come out at 10 SmartPoints or under.

We welcome you to explore these recipes and bookmark or Pin this page on Pinterest to save it for later because as we add new Weight Watchers recipes to the site they will automatically be added to this page so that this page will become an invaluable resource for Weight Watchers Crock-Pot Recipes for those of you who are looking to lose weight but still want easy slow cooker recipes.

We also have some low point spice mixes included in this list too. These are not Crock-Pot recipes, but they are seasonings we make and use often in our recipes because we like to make our own spices and seasoning mixes whenever we can so that we can control the ingredients and what is in them.

I don’t know that the alterations that I made to the recipe had any significant difference in the outcome but mine was delicious! I did it on the stovetop and the S&S sauce thickened up very nicely. I made it with the Cauliflower Fried Rice and I’ll be making it again.

The sauce was so watery that there was literally zero flavor. I had to add more sauce at the end which I’m sure added more points. Waste of chicken.

Made this today and it was really good! After reading the reviews I decided to leave the chicken breasts whole and cut them right before serving and had no problems with dry chicken. I also added 2T low sodium soy sauce because I love the flavor. It was great, thanks for the recipe!

After reading some of the comments, I did one thing a bit different to make sure it wasn’t overcooked. I throughly cooked the chicken in the crockpot first (frozen chicken tenders are what I had… took about 2 hours on high). Then I took pieces out cut them into bite size pieces. I put chicken and all but frozen veggies into crockpot and let that get throughly hot on high, added the bag of stirfry veggies and let cook on high until done (30-45 minutes) and ate it over brown rice. YUMMY!

If this is old WW points… Can anybody tell me what the points+ value would be?

Same review as Sarah… it was just terrible! The sauce was watery/soupy… the chicken dry and flavorless. what a shame, it smelled so good when it started cooking :-(

You can try adding a bit or cornstarch to the sauce to thicken it up….a small amount shouldn't change the Points value.

I made this recipe tonight and as it was cooking, I noticed all the negative responses and got really nervous…lol. Anyway-it turned out really, really good! My 14 year old son, 10 year old daughter and my husband had seconds. I used Kikomon dipping sweet and sour sauce and only cooked it for 3 hours. I added thr veggies after that and it turned out flavorful and sweet. I also added extra brown sugar. I put it over Basmati rice that I sauted with onions and garlic. I am sure the point value changed, but it was still very, very good. Thanks

I made it. It wasn't amazing, but it wasn't terrible either. It just needed a little more flavor and the chicken got a little dried out, but that was my fault. Next time I might add a little more sweet and sour sauce or something to give it more flavor.

OH NO…I have this ready to cook tomorrow and have people coming over…I didn't read the reviews first, so I'm concerned. Does anyone have anything good to say about it. Help!

I live in Singapore and tried this recipe last weekend. For some reason, it was awful. The sauce was incredibly runny, and the meal was basically flavorless. We ate our portions as not to waste, but we added quite a bit of chili sauce for taste and had to throw the rest of it away.

I couldn't find Kikkoman Sweet & Sour Sauce here, so I substituted a local brand. Do you think this could have been the problem?

I've tried some of your other recipes, and they all turn out so well! Maybe I'll try this one again with a different S&S sauce…

I tried this recipe, adding the ingredients to a "T" and setting the timer on low for 6 hours, and sadly it was completely inedible. My husband didn't mind it too much but I honestly couldn't even eat it. I don't know where it went wrong but it seemed like there wasn't enough sauce or something and the chicken was done cooking after only maybe a couple hours so by the end it was like jerkey and the sauce was an off consistacy. So I tried to add the rest of the Kikkoman's sauce to it but it just wasn't fixable. Any thoughts as to how it ended up like this? It sounds and looks wonderful by this recipe, I LOVE chinese and was just heartbroken! Thanks anyway, I'm anxious to try some other of your recipes :)

Crock pots can vary significantly on how high their internal temperatures are for each setting. Simply put, some crock pots just cook faster than others. Try cutting your cooking time down to 3hrs and see how it looks then. If it's ready, go ahead and serve it and if the chicken isn't done cooking yet, let it go a bit longer. Hope that helps! Good luck :)
