      Hi! Yes, you can reduce this recipe for only one serving. However, this would be a great recipe to prepare and save the extras for future meals. It would be a great recipes to freeze!

  4. Janice  February 19, 2019

    I don’t see how you come up with 7 smartpoints. The only item with point value would be the olive oil and maybe the chicken broth??

    • Nichole Furlong  February 23, 2019

      Hi Janice, you are correct. This recipe should only be 2 points! I’ve edited the nutrition info with the correct points.
