Oh yum! I loved this! A super easy, low cal, low fat supper. Great for nights you need to make supper ahead of time as well. I served bean burritos to the rest of the family to go with their salad. They would have looked at me like I had lost my mind if I only served them salad for supper. ;-)

Edited to add - The second time I made this, I only used 1 tablespoon of oil. And in place of the chicken, I used a can of black beans. Still yummy! Currently, one of my very favorite healthy treats. :-)
