This may be good, but 427 calories and "45 grams of fat!!!!" oh my. Way too high. This is a diet site, lets stick to lower calorie/fat foods pleeeeese.

This sounds wonderful...I don't think The Next Number realizes this site is for all diets and this fits Atkins nicely! I can't wait to try it!
I made this but used fajita chicken - it was so good we had it 2 nights in a row!

as per the Nutrition facts ...isnt this mostly fat?!

Is there a misprint in the ingredients for this? It says to use 1 chicken breast, but that it makes 5 servings. Also, a cup of EVOO seems a tad excessive for just one breast. I was thinking I would make it with 3-5 breasts, and keep the amounts of the other ingredients as written. Wondering what others have done???
