  • I have made this recipe several times from my Better Homes & Gardens New Dieters Cookbook. The nutritional info. listed here is different than in my cookbook. My recipe calls for four 3 oz breasts- My cookbook says that the calorie count should be 170 per serving (with non-stick spray). - 1/7/10
