The recipe that started it all – GROUND ORANGE CHICKEN. This dish is high in protein and flavor, yet low in points. When I first started WW, I kid you not, I made this recipe (and stuffed peppers) every single day for weeks.. ha! All of my friends kept asking for this recipe which is how Allie Carte started. I love how versatile it is; it can really be paired with anything! Today I chose Taste of Thai rice noodles (for 6 additional points), but it is so good with spaghetti squash or rice. Try it out and let me know what you think!
As mentioned, this recipe only includes the meat. I added Taste of Thai noodles for an additional 6 points. Feel free to pair it with anything you would like. For a low point version, I HIGHLY suggest spaghetti squash. This recipe pairs so well with it.
Takeout fakeout recipes are one of my favorite dishes to make. I have so many that I absolutely love, and that are so popular by my followers. I left links for a bunch of them below this recipe, so definitely check it out.
This recipe is so easy to make. All you need to do is cook the chicken and add some sauce!
