“This is from Everyday with Rachael Ray April 2008. It was under a special section of light foods so it should be healthier for you despite what Recipezaar may calculate. My recommendation for this recipe is instead of getting a whole chicken just get a package of mixed pieces of chicken or just drumsticks or whatever you prefer.”
8 pieces of chicken
