  • Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in large non-stick skillet and set over medium heat. Add chicken, and cook until browned on each side (about 4 min) Transfer chicken onto plate and set aside.
  • heat the remaining 1 teaspoon of oil in the same skillet. Add onion and garlic , cook, and stirring occasionally until tender. add bell peppers, mushrooms, celery, oregano and cayenne.  Cook, stirring occasionally until tender.

    • I made this dish with 2 sides (you can find both of these in my recipe index, or click on links below):

Roasted Asparagus with Lemon and Chives (WW)
Creamy Garlic Mashed Potatoes (WW)

All together (with both sides = 8 points for Weight Watchers)

For just Chicken:
SERVES 8     WW points 4    PER SERVING 1 piece of chicken, 1/2 cup of veggies with sauce.

(Note: I took this out of a Weight watchers cookbook, I did not make this recipe up on my own…. besides recipes are meant to be shared 🙂 )
