I really need to lose some weight, but I love delicious food and love to cook! In the new iteration of Weight Watchers, chicken breast has zero points. So I combined aspects of traditional chicken cacciatore and came up with this. We enjoyed it, hope you will, too! (Using real olive oil and red wine, one half of recipe = 5 points as of 2018)
