So Costco has this awesome Kirkland chunk chicken in an 8 oz can. Of course you get like 6 of them when you buy them, so I wanted to get some different recipes.
This is one of my favorites! You can either do it as a “scramble” like shown in my picture, or you can make patties out of it. When I’m in a hurry I just do three scoops (I use my ice cream scooper which is 1/4 cup) with a table spoon of oil, crisp it up, and it’s all good!
I use Joseph brand flat bread which is out of this world! I get it from Walmart, and it is by the deli counter. 2 points each and worth it!
This is my go to dish when I have nothing in the house. I try to make it up a head of time so it’s ready to cook. It is so filling. I mean I am STUFFED when I eat this and it’s so mouth-wateringly flavorful that I am completely satisfied when I eat it!
Opa! Chicken Sandwich – 5-6 points
1 8 oz can Kirkland Chunk Chicken
1 Green Pepper (diced)
1 Small White Onion (diced)
1/2 cup Panko Bread Crumbs
1 Tablespoon Wildtree Opa! Seasoning (or Greek seasoning found at your grocery store)
Grapeseed Oil (I use garlic infused)
1 Cup Greek Yogurt (Plain, Non-Fat)
1/2 cucumber (seeded and grated)
1 Tablespoon Wildtree Tzatziki Seasoning (or brand found at your grocery store)
1 Joseph Whole Wheat Flat Bread
Combined all the ingredients for the Tzatziki dip and put in a container. Let the dip sit at least an hour in the refrigerator before serving.
Saute onions and peppers for 3 minutes. Set aside to cool.
Break up canned chicken with a fork, and mix in Opa! seasoning, egg, bread crumbs, and the cooled peppers. Let sit in the refrigerator for at least a half an hour.
If you make patties out of this mixture they are one point each. Heat pan with 1 tablespoon of oil. Form 9 patties from mixture, cooking 3-4 minutes on each side to make sure they are cooked through. Each patty is one point. They aren’t near as good reheated, so I do mine the scrambled way most of the time.
If going for the scramble, heat one teaspoon of oil and add the amount of chicken you would like – 3/4 cup is perfect for the Joseph wrap. Crisp it up until cooked through and add to your flatbread with your choice of garnishes.
The Tzatziki dip is free for 2 tablespoons or 1 point for 3. I love it so I usually take the hit and have 3 tablespoons!
Sometimes I use Wildtree seasonings in my recipes. I always try to put a substitute for them, but if you would like to try Wildtree check out my Wildtree site!
