Butternut Squash and Chicken Stew

Here’s another super fast dish. I love butternut squash and I happened to have one sitting on the counter so I looked through a few recipes and modified one to make it a bit healthier. Butternut Squash and Chicken Stew, for 1 and 1/4 cup of stew with a 1/4 cup of rice it’s about 6 weight watcher points. It was a big hit with my hubby and he’s not a huge fan of squash. If your looking for something different i suggest this dish.
