Hi there folks! I am doing my due diligence trying to stay on track this holiday season on Weight Watchers. Some days I do better than others. You can relate, I’m sure! Today I am sharing Weight Watchers Sweet and Sour Chicken in the Instant Pot. This recipe from start to finish was about 25 minutes total.

I jumped on Facebook live to share the first half of the step-by-step process. You can still see the recording here.

You don’t need a whole lot of ingredients either. Chicken breast, sweet and sour sauce (found in your International section of the grocery store), canned pineapple chunks, fresh broccoli  Tri colored onions, peppers, red, green, and yellow. I bought a frozen bag. Now with the Weight Watchers System, this meal was almost guiltless. Chicken, broccoli, peppers, and pineapple chunks are all ZERO points. Crazy, I tell ya! I can dig it though! YUMMY.

Weight Watchers Sweet and Sour Chicken 

I apologize my photos are a bit darker and have a funny hue to them. Now that it gets dark earlier, at dinner time I am missing my good photo opportunities. It’s all about the meal and recipe anyhow so you will certainly get that takeaway.

It definitely is a pretty array of colors. It most definitely has a packed full of delicious flavor. I still can’t believe it is not that many points. The rice for one cup is 4 points. I don’t think I even had a full cup of it. The sauce is 3 points per serving. Making this a total of  7 smart points.

I could have had seconds minus the rice and only added a drizzle of sauce making it one extra point. I wasn’t hungry though after this full plate of deliciousness.
