Kelly,
Thanks for posting this -- it sounds good!
By the way, I calculate 2 points per serving. Actually 1.56 points , but I would round to 2 points. I used excel, and the formula: calories/50 + fat/12 - fiber/5 = Points .
I ran it through MasterCook 4.0 and got 102.2 calories per serving instead of 92. That was the only difference. It gave me the same fat and fiber info. Wonder how that happened?

It is the different ingredients. I used all brand names and calories/fat/fiber can be different.

I always use my slide rule too. The formula with show a difference because it isn't "exact". And even with 102 cal it comes out right on the line.

You need to remember that everything in the recipe is a 0 point veggie or condiment other than the corn starch and chicken (it will have 6 ounces of cooked meat and 1 tablespoon of corn starch so divide that between 7 servings and you've only got 1 point).

Right.

Veges = 0
thanks

This is a good one. I'm always in search of good recipes for and with lots of vegetables.
