Recommended Posts

I made this for dinner tonight - very tasty!

 

CROCKPOT BARBECUED TURKEY AND VEGETABLES

 

Servings: 4

Points per Serving: 8

 

Ingredients

 

1 cup(s) Kraft honey barbecue sauce

1/2 cup(s) water

1 lb(s) boneless, skinless turkey breast(s)

3 large potato(es) (cut into chunks)

6 medium carrot(s) (cut into short sticks)

 

Instructions

 

In medium bowl, blend barbecue sauce with 1/2 cup of hot water. Layer turkey, potatoes, and carrots in crockpot. Pour sauce mixture over top. Cover and cook on low setting for at least 9 hours. Remove turkey and vegetables with slotted spoon. Place on serving platter. Serving cooking juice over turkey and vegetables.

THANK YOU! This is EXACTLY what I came on board to look for. I'm a new crockpot user & wanted to find out if BBQ sauce could be used - I didn't know if it would 'gum' up being in the crockpot so long. I'm going to fix your recipe & use sweet potatoes instead of regular!! yum yum

Yeah, we really liked this one a lot too.

 

It was a recipe that I found posted somewhere else and the points seemed high to me too. I am an online WW member, so I ran it through their "recipe builder" function and it came up with these points......

 

Maybe it's something like this:

 

3 large potatoes (3)

6 large carrots (2)

1 cup barbecue sauce (8)

1 lb. boneless skinless turkey breast (13)

 

Total: I come up with 26

 

So according to my estimations that would make it 6.5 points per serving. I'm not sure if I'm missing something - 8 points is what WW gave to me.....?? :confused: :confused: :confused:

 

Anyone else have suggestions here?

Wouldn't 3 large potatoes be 9 points? I always count them as 3 points each (starting off with a 10 oz. raw weight potato...)

Yes, you're right - THANKS!

 

That would make the whole recipe 32. With 4 servings that would make it 8 points per serving........

 

Thanks for the clarification and help!!!!!

Thanks! I made this tonight and husband and kids liked it. That's a miracle! The turkey was nice and moist and had a nice flavor. And...it tastes totally different from the turkey we'll be having soon.
