Cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened. Add reserved chicken; simmer, basting chicken frequently with sauce, 5-10 min, until chicken is cooked through.
- Chicken thighs = 6 points per serving (1 thigh + 1/2 cup sauce).
- Chicken breasts = 5 points per serving (1 breast + 1/2 cup sauce).
This definitely has some different flavors in it. I'm not a big fan of green olives (which I had read as green onions) stupid me. Anyway DH loves them so I just picked them out of my serving. Did have some problems with the ingredient list and the directions. Have z-mailed mariposa13. I did make it using chicken breast. Served it with steamed broccoli and Stuffed Baked Potatoes with Horseradish Cream. Thanks for posting.
