This Chicken Quesadilla Pie is only 3 Freestyle points per serving! Plus it is a quick and easy recipe, perfect for those crazy weeknights.
This is actually a recipe I used to make when I was low carb dieting, but I’ve made some changes.
The “pie crust” is actually a quesadilla. I used one Ole Xtreme high fiber tortilla wrap. It’s only 1 Freestyle point.
The filling for the Chicken Quesadilla Pie is boneless, skinless chicken breast, cilantro, red onion and reduced fat cheddar cheese.
I used to use regular cheddar cheese but changed it to reduced fat since it is fewer points.
If you are not a fan of cilantro you can omit it. If you don’t like red onions you can substitute it with green or white onions.
There are so many recipes that I make changes to because I’m a picky eater. It’s all about making food how you will enjoy it.
This is what I love about Weight Watchers. You can still eat whatever you want, sometimes you just have to make a few simple changes. I don’t feel like I’m missing out on anything.
I used a rotisserie chicken for this recipe. It’s something I do quite often to save time.
Although I only use the chicken breasts (with skin removed) the rest of the chicken doesn’t go to waste. My kids always want a chicken leg!
The thighs I usually save as treats for my cat and dog.
