This is a great recipe I found in the San Antonio Express-News. It would be easy to vary it with different vegetables. I like to add fresh spinach just before it's done cooking (just long enough to wilt the spinach). I also season the chicken with Italian seasoning in addition to salt before cooking. We serve it with pasta and love it! Approximately 4 Weight Watchers points per serving.
