_DSC0601 - Copy Chicken

This is from the Weight Watcher Cookbook Power Foods. The original recipe called for fresh basil. I only had fresh rosemary so I used that and it was wonderful. I also only had chicken tenderloins. Because they are only 2 points for 4 ounces of the tenderloins, when you use those the points plus value would be a little less. It was really good and nice not to be eating plain old chicken! The green beans were fresh picked from my garden this morning, so that was exciting!!

Blessings!
