Weight Watcher Wednesday


Due to the fact that I have many comments and emails asking me if I do any Weight Watcher's recipes....I decided to dedicate each Wednesday to a WW recipe. I hope you all will enjoy these recipes and put them to good use! If you are not a point counter for weight watchers you can still make these drumsticks and feel good about eating a healthy meal without all the fat of regular buffalo chicken! :)

Farmchick's Lighter Buffalo Chicken Drumsticks

12 skinless, drumsticks
1/2 cup Franks Hot Sauce plus 2 tablespoons
1/4 cup white vinegar
2 tablespoon oregano
4 teaspoons paprika
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon chili powder
salt and cracked pepper
celery, in strips
blue cheese dressing
Light sour cream
-----------------------------
to make the dressing I use 4 tablespoons blue cheese dressing mixed with
1/2 cup light sour cream. Much lighter but you still get the blue cheese taste!
-----------------------------

Remove skin from drumsticks. Marinate drumsticks in 2 tablespoons hot sauce, vinegar, paprika, garlic powder, chili powder, salt and pepper. Let marinate for at least 30 minutes.

Bake chicken at 350 degrees until juices run clear. Serve with 1 tablespoon dressing.

Now add the remaining hot sauce to chicken, toss to coat and heat in oven for 10 minutes.

One drumstick with one tablespoon sauce = 2 weight watchers points! Yummy!

Oh and don't forget to eat your celery!! :)

This is my first time stopping by your blog. Love it! Love the recipes, the pictures, the Ben Franklin quote. I'm praying for the family of the 9-year-old who passed away. What a tragedy for that family. Praying that God will meet them where they are and bring them great peace and comfort in the midst of such sadness.

The Wife said...

Just dropped by to say what a lovely blog, all the way from England! I love American food, it seems so much more imaginative than ours. We have fish and chips! Can you tell me what a yam is? I'd love to know!
Drop by my blog some time, you'll be very welcome.

Hey ladybug, what a good idea! I love wings, so this may come in awful handy for me. The plus side is, I don't need the dressing!! Hope you are doing well. Come see me!!

I'll be looking forward to your wednesday posts! I lost 36 pounds, but still want to lose about 34 more!
I might try this with boneless chicken breasts. not a big fan of the drumstick! sounds really good though.
