5 stars from this family! VERY good. I wasn't worried about the low-fat deal - have a growing daughter, so I used a little olive oil for the chicken and used regular Swanson's broth. The fresh plum tomatoes at my store looked nasty, so I used a can of petite diced tomatoes.Loved the flavor,and topped it with Parmesan. Definitely a keeper, and I think it would make a great summer dish - won't heat up the kitchen too much. Thanks!
This was a very nice low fat meal! I thought it was very satisfying. I agree that it needed something. I added some seasoning to the chicken, but everyone said it needed more so feel free to add more seasoning because I agree there.
I made this a couple weeks ago, and it made a ton! My b/f ate a bunch and then I froze half of it. It was good, but I still felt like it was missing something. I did love the rosemary! I used canned tomatoes and added some onion, but still, a little bland. I'll make it again, just try and think of something else to add.
