½ teaspoon onion powder

½ teaspoon garlic powder

1 cup fat free half and half

1 cup fat free ricotta cheese

  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper.  Heat a large skillet on medium high heat and coat with cooking spray.  Add chicken and sauté for 7 – 10 minutes until chicken is cooked through.
