This was one of the best dishes I have made in a long time! I may try to reduce the amount of olive oil in it next time so it isn’t so high in weight watcher points.

Original recipe from http://www.thecafesucrefarine.com

Recipe makes 8 servings
1 serving = 1/2 chicken breast, 1/2 cup bean & tomato mixture, & 2 tbsp greek yogurt sauce = 10 weight watchers points+
