    Recipe looks great. I see that 2T of evoo is listed in the ingredients but I don’t see it added in the directions. I am sure it is when you cook the chicken and veggies but maybe confusing to people just learning to cook.
    Love that you are into healthy and show the nutritional values of a recipe. So many recipes say low calorie or healthy but with no nutritional values listed. What they think is healthy or low calorie may not be what I think. So thanks again.
