1 1/2 c Low sodium chicken broth

This is from my Weight Watchers cookbook and VERY good!
1. In a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, warm the oil.
Sprinkle both sides of the chicken with the paprika. Add the chicken
to the skillet and cook until golden on both sides., 7 to 8 minutes.
Remove the chiekn to a dish and cover loosely to keep warm.
2. Add the rice and the scallions to the skillet. Cook, stirring
frequently, until the rice is golden and translucent, 2 to 3 minutes.
3. Stir in the borth, tomatoes with liquid, parsley, saffron, and
pepper, crushing the tomatoes with a spoon. Bring the liquid to a
boil. Return the chicken (and any juices that have accumulated in the
dish) to the skillet. Cover, reduce the heat to low, and simmer for
15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
4. Stir in the green beans and pimento. Cover and cook until the
beans are just tender, about 15 minutes.

Note: I serve this with a large tossed salad with mushrooms,
broccoslaw, green pepper and cauliflower accented by a fat free sun
dried tomato vinagrette. YUMMY!
