Just doubled the ingredients and took out most of the seeds and membranes so it wasn’t to spicy. I probably used close to a full cup. Add half of the chicken and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

Made this last night and OMG!!!!!!!! I used half panko and half baked tortilla chips that I crushed in the food processor. My points turned out to be 7 points per piece, but having one piece paired with the fiesta rice and a big serving of veggies is more than enough! My picky mom and husband both loved it. THANK YOU!
