Cheesy Jalapeno Stuffed Chicken – WW Recipe

We eat a lot of chicken in our house. I am always trying to find new ways to make it. Both my husband and I like spicy foods so I decided to make a cheesy jalapeno stuffed chicken breast. Well…correction, my husband made it. I had knee surgery yesterday and totally forgot to cook the chicken before the surgery. So, being the good guy that he is, he not only made the chicken, BUT he also took pictures for me too!

Cheesy Jalapeno Stuffed Chicken Breast

Delicious recipe for a cheesy jalapeno stuffed chicken breast. WW friendly recipe at just 2 points!

Course Main Course
Keyword chicken, smartpoints, stuffed chicken, weight watchers
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
Servings 3 people

Ingredients

  • 3 Chicken Breasts pound slightly thinner
  • 3 small Jalapeno Peppers sliced in half; hollowed out
  • 3/8 cup Shredded Colby Jack Cheese divided
  • 6 Pepper Seasoning to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare your baking pan. I like to use this baking mat. It keeps the chicken up and gives it a nice crisp!

  2. Slightly pound your chicken a bit thinner and then slice the chicken open, leaving one side intact. 

  3. Slice your jalapeno peppers in half and hollow them out. Place half of the pepper in the chicken and cover with 1/8 cup shredded cheese. Set the other half of the pepper on top and close the chicken and secure with toothpicks (I use metal toothpicks. If you use wooden ones, soak in water first).

  4. Bake for about 40 minutes. Make sure you cook your chicken to an internal temp of 165 degrees.

I highly recommend that baking mat. The chicken cooks so much better on it and those little triangles keep the chicken up so that it’s not just sitting in it’s own juices while it cooks. The price for that mat is a really good one too!

As you can see from the picture, my husband easily closed the chicken with one metal toothpick. If I were making this, I would have flipped the chicken halfway through, but he didn’t and it tasted just fine! I didn’t eat more than a few bites last night since I figured a giant, spicy chicken breast, was probably not the best thing to eat right after surgery! But it was really delicious and I can’t wait to eat it tonight!

It’s WW Friendly!

We used regular shredded cheese. So in doing that, it made this chicken dish 2 points. If you like, you could try using low fat or fat free shredded cheese and the points may go down. I, personally, prefer the taste of regular cheese and plan to just account for that. It’s totally up to you with what you choose to do. Either way, this is a very low point WW recipe!

Fajita Ground Turkey Egg Muffins

One of the things I do every Sunday night, in order to be prepared for the week ahead, is pre-make some quick and easy foods. One of our favorites are the egg muffins. The spicy sausage egg muffins are a huge favorite in our house, however, since joining Weight Watchers, I wanted to make some that were less points. Today I decided to use ground turkey and make fajita ground turkey egg muffins! You guys, they are so good! Even better…they are low in points. I like that, just as much as I like how they taste! Gotta love low point Weight Watchers recipes!

Fajita Ground Turkey Egg Muffins

Super easy recipe, perfect to make ahead, fajita ground turkey egg muffins. Only 1 point on Weight Watchers per ground turkey egg muffin!

Course Breakfast
Keyword eggs, freezer recipe, keto, low carb, weight watchers
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 27 minutes
Total Time 37 minutes
Servings 12 people

Ingredients

  • 1/2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 lb Extra Lean Ground Turkey brown
  • 1/2 packet McCormick's Gluten Free Fajita Seasoning
  • 6 large Eggs
  • 1 cup Egg Whites
  • 1/2 medium Red Bell Pepper diced
  • 2/3 cup Shredded Colby and Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 tbsp Minced Onion

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare your muffin tin. I use a silicone muffin pan that I really like. 

  2. Brown your ground turkey. Sprinkle half of the packet of McCormick's Fajita Seasoning onto the ground turkey while you are browning it. I purchase the gluten free version, but if you don't need it, just purchase the regular one!

  3. While the ground turkey is browning, dice up your red bell pepper and set aside. Beat your eggs and egg whites and set aside.

  4. Once your ground turkey is browned, place a little bit of turkey in each muffin well. Next add your minced onion, red pepper, and cheese to each muffin well. Slowly pour the eggs over top of it all.

  5. Bake in the oven for 27 mins. Immediately remove the egg muffins from the muffin pan and allow to fully cool on a wire rack. Once cooled, store in an air-tight container in the fridge for 5-7 days.

If you are following Weight Watchers, these work out to just 1 point per ground turkey egg muffin! How cool is that?!? Simply reheat them in the microwave in 30 second increments until they are hot and you have a quick and easy breakfast for those days when you are running out the door. Since I’m up and out the door early to get my son to school (it’s about 40 minutes away), I’m starving and need something quick. These are perfect!

You can customize these fajita ground turkey egg muffins to your liking! Don’t like red bell peppers? Take them out! Add the veggies of your choosing! If you want to make a bunch at once and freeze them, you can! Just make sure you wrap them tightly and I would only store them for about three months. I plan on doing this right before my knee surgery I have scheduled for October 10th. This will help things out a lot in the mornings when I am laid up!


Spicy Sausage Egg Muffins

The Keto diet/lifestyle that I have been following for almost three years now, has been the best thing I have ever done for myself. With this diet, I eat a lot of eggs. So, as you can imagine, I am always looking for different ways to make and enjoy eggs. Especially since anytime I eat eggs, it keeps me full and content for hours! The one thing you want, when starting a new diet/lifestyle plan, is to be full and content! These spicy sausage egg muffins are the perfect thing to make at the start of your week to make your mornings easy.

Spicy Sausage Egg Muffins

The perfect Keto, low carb and gluten free recipe to help you get your day started!

Course Breakfast, Snack
Cuisine American
Keyword eggs, gluten free, keto, low carb
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 27 minutes
Total Time 37 minutes
Servings 12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Spicy Ground Sausage
  • 6 Eggs beaten
  • 1 cup Egg Whites beaten
  • 1 TBSP Minced Onion
  • 5 slices Bell Pepper
  • 1 Cup Colby Jack Shredded Cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Put your sausage in a frying pan and cook completely. Set aside.

  3. Put your 6 eggs in a pourable measuring cup like this one. Measure out your 1 cup of egg whites. Beat each separately and then mix together (trust me on this step. It makes things easier)!

  4. If you are using a metal muffin tin, lightly spray each muffin well (I like my Misto for this job). However, I have found that these silicone muffin molds work really well and nothing ever sticks!

  5. Divide your cooked sausage between each of the muffin wells. Next divide the minced onion, bell pepper and cheese.

  6. Pour the egg mixture over each muffin well. Pour slowly.

  7. Place in the oven and back for 25-27 minutes. Mine took 27 minutes.

These egg muffins are delicious! Be sure to eat them warm. However, like I mentioned earlier, these are super easy to make at the beginning of the week for quick and easy breakfast ideas! Be sure to let the spicy egg muffins completely cool before storing them in the refrigerator. Simply pull one out in the morning and reheat in the microwave. I heat mine in 25 second intervals.

Spicy Sausage Egg Muffins Macros

If you are following the Keto diet, you are probably wondering what the macros are. As always, I recommend you put the exact ingredients you purchase to get the most accurate macros. Also, look at all the options for sausage. The sausage I purchased had zero carbs. While most had zero carbs. Some did contain a few carbs.

The macros, according to the ingredients I purchased are:

  • 196 calories
  • 15.1g Fat
  • 10.9g Protein
  • 1.3g Carbs

The nice thing about these spicy sausage egg muffins, is that you can change up your ingredients (which will also change your macros). Next time I plan on making spinach and cheese egg muffins or even chorizo and cheddar (not sure what cheese goes with chorizo!) egg muffins!


Spicy Brussels Sprouts – Air Fryer Recipe

Brussels sprouts have always been that vegetable that I wanted to like, but I just couldn’t get past the smell. They just always seemed to smell like feet to me. Over the holidays, I had Brussels sprouts and they were delicious (and didn’t smell like feet). I started thinking about the different spices I could use to make them myself. While honey and balsamic vinegar make them delicious, they aren’t really on my Keto diet. However, this spicy Brussels sprouts recipe is totally on my diet!

When I originally made this, I did not cut them in half. While they were still very good, the spicy Brussels sprouts would be even better if you cut them in half. This way the yummy, spicy Brussels sprouts get even more of the spicy seasoning all over them! These Brussels sprouts are delicious! Even my daughter tried them!

If you don’t have an air fryer, get one! This has become my favorite appliance! Everything we’ve put in this air fryer has come out delicious! I cannot wait to make a steak in it!
