I served this chicken with an Italian Simmered Rice

1 cup spinach, chopped

1/2 cup parmesan cheese

Pour broth into sauce pan. Sprinkle in italian seasoning. Bring to boil. Add rice & spinach. Bring to boil. Cover & turn to low. Cook 20 minutes until rice is tender.

Serves 4. 4pts each.

This dinner was extremely filling & very satisfying. I will definitely make it again.
