WW Recipe of the Day: Crock Pot Chicken with Creamy Corn
(300 calories | *6 WW SmartPoints)
This easy easy crock pot chicken thighs and creamy corn was a big hit with Rod. Born and raised in the midwest, he loves simple comfort food best.
And it doesn’t get much simpler or more comforting than crock pot chicken thighs and creamy corn.
With just a few ingredients it’s a snap to toss together too.
I got the idea from one of my favorite cookbooks of the moment, 365 Slow Cooker Suppers by Stephanie O’Dea. Unfortunately it doesn’t include nutritional information, a bummer for Weight Watchers.
The Skinny on Crock Pot Chicken Thighs with Creamy Corn
The original recipe called for frozen corn and cream cheese. I substituted with what I had in the pantry: canned corn and canned creamed corn, and skipped the cream cheese.
And I tried to bump up the flavor by adding basil and McCormick Grill Mates Montreal Chicken Seasoning . But use whatever seasoning you like best.
According to my calculations, each serving has 300 calories, *8 Weight Watchers PointsPlus, *6 WW Freestyle SmartPoints. Enjoy!
