South Beach Diet Smothered Chicken

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Amanda Beth

This is kind of like the Smothered Chicken they used to have at Cracker Barrel, but SBD friendly. Hubby likes his with salsa on top. I like mine plain. Hope you like it too!

Chicken was dry and relatively unappetizing. I am not sure how to modify the recipe to make hte chicken more moist.
