Layered Mexican Chicken

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Renita

This is a recipe I got on the weight watchers web site. It is SO GOOD and only 6 points for a hearty serving. Even if you aren't watching your weight, it is a great and filling dish.

This is delicious! I reduced the recipe down for two and used 1 chicken breast and a whole can of red kidney beans, as I'm not sure what black beans are. I also mixed the salsa in with the sour cream instead of serving it on the side and it was great. 30 minutes cooking time was perfect. Thanks, we really enjoyed this!
