Putting here for safe keeping. Serve with a salad or with steamed spinach. Enjoy! Serving: 1 chicken thigh with about 1 cup of bean mixture (6 points per serving) For some reason the amount stock will not save it is 3/4 c but I use more.
- 4 (5 ounce) skinless bone-in chicken thighs
- 1 (15 ounce) can cannellini or 1 (15 ounce) can navy beans, drained and rinsed

- 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 2 teaspoons olive oil

- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes

- 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
- Sprinkle chicken with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Heat oil in Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, turning once, until browned, about 6 minutes. Transfer to plate.
- Add remaining 1 tsp oil to Dutch oven. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened about 5 minutes.

This was a really nice recipe. I used rosemary instead of the sage, just personal preference. I also cut the lemon zest in half, as it is really strong and I didn't want to overpower the dish. I added 1/4 c of minced, fresh parsley with the zest at the end for some additional freshness and color. Really nice, complex flavors. I will make this again, perhaps adding a small amount of Italian sausage as a complement.
