Sauteed Chicken Breasts

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Paka

This is easy and quick. The sauce may be thickened and poured over each serving or served in bowls for a dipping sauce. The flavor is great!

Made this for the first time today - EXCELLENT RECIPE! I used 1 pound of chicken and even at a 4 ounce serving of chicken it's only 4 points per serving on Weight Watchers. Very tasty! Unfortunately I did not have thyme in the house (I am going to get some soon so I can make the actual recipe) so I added Tastefully Simple Rustic Seasoning instead. Very good! The sauce is tasty and my husband thought this was fabulous! Thanks so much for posting this recipe!
