Notes

This is a recipe I came up with for my nutrition class last quarter. I had to come up with a 3 course menu that was 1000 calories or under which must include appetizer, entree and dessert. This chicken is from the entree portion. I also made cous cous with green, yellow and red peppers, shallots and garlic to go along with chicken. It was a hit my instructor loved it.
