“I got this recipe from Weight Watchers magazine. It is one of Jennifer Hudson's, WW spokesperson, favorite recipes. After trying it, I can see why. The cornflake crumbs really give it that wonderful crunch. I made mine without the gravy and it was still delicious! I also used all chicken breasts. So good, you won't believe it is good for you. Points Plus Value is 8.”
