A Healthy Weight Watchers Recipe
Plus a Giveaway for:
Wooden Stand with Nine Holy Lama Spice Drops
Welcome to my second Weight Watchers recipe of the New Year, as well as a fabulous giveaway. Today’s recipe for Baked Lemon Chicken with Saffron is low in calories, healthy and very exotic with the amazing taste of saffron, lemon and pomegranate. It’s only 7 smart points, for those counting points in the latest Weight Watchers diet and is 350 calories for those of you who are following the 5:2 diet, meaning that you can have this as a main meal on a fast day. It’s also a wonderful dinner party dish, and who would know it was a healthy option if served as part of an Asian inspired meal with naan bread, sambals and chutney…….and, the colour of the saffron makes it look very regal. You CAN use saffron threads in this recipe, but I used some amazing Holy Lama Spice Drops, which are VERY easy to use – the oil being extracted from fresh spices (and herbs).

I have been using Spice Drops for over a year now and my favourites are saffron, as used in today’s recipe, lovage (of course!) and mulled wine, which I used extensively over Christmas. Apart from the fact that they are easy to use, and last longer than conventional ground spices (up to three years shelf life), I am very keen to support a company that ethically sources and ethically produces their products, which Holy Lama Spice Drops does. They are also very economical, one drop equals one teaspoon and the flavours are authentic and subtle. For the prize today, I am pleased to include SIX of the Great Taste Award winners, including two of my favourites, Cardamom, Cinnamon, Rose, Saffron, Lemongrass and Mulled Wine. The spice drops come in a handy wooden stand, and the prize is worth £39:50.
The saffron drops that I added to my recipe for Baked Lemon Chicken with Saffron made the dish shine – the colour was vibrant and yet not garish, and the taste was exotic and yet subtle, with the saffron adding an extra layer to the flavours. I served the chicken dish with a scattering of jewel-like pomegranate seeds and some freshly chopped parsley for an elegant and dazzlingly delicious tasty mid-week meal. The recipe is shared below, as well as the giveaway – DO have a go at making this recipe and DO try some of these easy to use spice drops too, you can get them via Ocado.com and these outlets here: Stockists.
