Thai Chicken Pasta – 4 Freestyle Points

This is the perfect recipe to use up leftover chicken. It’s also great for those busy nights that you don’t feel like being in the kitchen forever. That sounds like a win-win to me!

The recipe itself is only 4 Freestyle points per serving. I garnished mine with cilantro, green onions and sesame seeds. It was delicious!
