I purchased a pack of Jack Daniels Beef Brisket at Target when it was on sale. I had seen this particular product time and time again but had yet to purchase. On the look out for something new, I decided to grab a pack and have it for lunch one day.
I heated the pack up per the directions – piercing the bag and placing into the microwave. When done I weighed out my serving – 151 grams.I paired it up with a baked potato and some canned carrots. The carrots and potato were delicious but the brisket was mediocre. It was alright but not something I was a huge fan of.It was passable as a meal, but not enjoyable and I like to enjoy my food. The brisket was fatty so I spent a majority of the time cutting the fat off the meat and feeding it to my dogs. They enjoyed it.
I’ve tried a few of the Jack Daniels line items and while I do enjoy the pulled chicken, it is very sweet. The glaze used on the beef brisket is also sweet, but not sickeningly so. A 151 gram serving was 5 points plus.Worth it?Eh, I don’t know if I’d say it was but it was a meal…
Have you tried any of the Jack Daniels heat and eat meals?
I made my boyfriend and I BBQ Pulled Chicken Pizzas for dinner the other day because I was feeling inspired and I really wanted something different to eat that was new and somewhat exciting.I had picked the items up, unrelated to one another and decided to whip them together. I was quite pleased with how it turned out because I have purchased the Jack Daniels Pulled Chicken in the past to pair with salads – but my boyfriend wasn’t too keen on it because it’s a sweeter BBQ sauce and not a tangy one.If you’re wondering why there is a pizza with cheese on it and one without – my boyfriend isn’t necessarily a self proclaimed fan of cheese (as I am) so his pizza was made simply sans cheese.
To create these I used the original multi-grain flavored Flat Out bread, 5.3 ounces of Jack Daniels Pulled Chicken and on mine 1/3 cup shredded fat free mozzarella.I baked them off in a 350 degree oven for 8-10 minutes (really until the cheese was melted and the chicken was heated through). I enjoyed mine with a side salad … yummers!
Weight Watchers PointsPlus Value wise – this was 8 PointsPlus for the whole pizza (including cheese), 7 PointsPlus without it.
Have you ever made a healthier pizza alternative at home?
