Big Bites Little Bites – Herb Crusted Pot Roasted and Parmesan Potatoes

Janet made it- we found the recipe here for the roast and the potatoes here

So it tasted awesome- but Janet would say there was a problem with the roast recipe.
She said the recipe called for adding herb crusting after the internal temp hit 110- which meant you need to remove the roast while it is steaming hot- how do you possibly hand rub on a herb batter on something that hot.

well, she did her best and it came out awesome.

Meal pictured is worth 12 points.

Crock Pot Chicken Santa Fe – BigBitesLittleBites Review

So, here is another recipe from SkinnyTaste. We are madly in-love with her recipes- each one is getting better and better.

Since on Wednesday nights we go to church (click here to check out Emmorton Baptist Church) we need something easy to make and crock pot recipes are typically perfect.

Janet threw it in the crock early this morning and we cooked the rice once I got home. The final plate looked like this.

The chicken part is only 4pts and a full serving a rice is 5pts.

This was an incredibly hardy meal that the entire family enjoyed. My 6 years old had 3 servings.

What you do not see in the photo is cheddar and sour cream, we forgot about it until later, but I was too hungry to get up and grab my phone.

Big Bites Little Bites Chicken Parm Burger Night

Here is what we had for tonight. Janet had a ladies event at our church, so I was the king and lone cook of the home. I came across this recipe over at SkinnyTaste go check it out.

This was super easy to prepare. Go to your local grocery and get chicken patties, thaw  and toss them on your griddle.

After letting them cook, toss on some mozzarella cheese and place it under the broiler. Remove from the pan and toss it on a roll. Then pour on a little sauce on top and here is what you get.

In theory this could be a Weight Watchers meal, but the way I made it- I would simply say this meal ended somewhere around 15points.

An awesome 15 points may i add.

Both the girls that were home each had a half and loved every bite- especially the cheese. Boy, do my girls love cheese.
