Grapefruit-Mint Chicken

READY IN: 36mins
Top Review by Linda FromSonoma

A friend made this recipe for me last night and it was delicious. It has an intriguing mix of flavors, but is not at all heavy. A great summer entree. And for the Weight Watchers out there, a serving is only 4 pts! Give it a try.
