1) Protein Pancakes
1 cup cottage cheese
1/4 cup cooking oil (olive, vegetable, canola, etc.)
1/4 cup milk
3 tbsp flour
Mix all ingredients in a blender and then pour onto skillet like regular pancakes.These pancakes are to die for. The cottage cheese is flavorless and no one would ever guess its presence. In fact, I have never met anyone who has not liked these. They taste like crepes.
2) Barbecued Chicken Pizza
Taken from Weight Watchers’ Pizza, Pizza recipe book
4 whole-wheat English muffins, split
1 medium red onion, diced
1 bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup fat-free BBQ sauce
1 1/2 cups shredded chicken
2 tsp hot pepper sauce (any kind)
1/2 cup shredded cheese blend
1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro (you can find this in the fresh vegetable section)
1) Preheat oven to 435. Place the English muffins cut-side down and toast until golden. Turn the muffins over and set aside.
2) Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set over medium heat. Add the onion and bell pepper; cooking until the onion is browned. Remove the skillet from the heat. Pour BBQ sauce into the pan, leaving out 1 tbsp, and add the chicken, hot sauce and vegetables. Stir until thoroughly incorporated.
3) Spoon the mixture onto the English muffins. Sprinkle the cheese on top and bake until melted. Top it off with the remaining BBQ sauce and cilantro.
