“I tried (and loved) CropperSteph's recipe (#250808), but needed to find a way to lighten it. I substituted the non-fat or low-fat version of a few of the ingredients and used chicken breasts instead of thights. My family thought it was just as good, but then again, they prefer chicken breast to thighs anyway...either way, it's a good recipe!”
