    Hungry Balsalmic Chicken (WW)

    Advertisements
    This is a great recipe, we eat it every week and a half or so. It's pretty flexible.

    Ingredients:
    2T oil, divided (we use olive oil)
    4T balsalmic vinegar
    2T Dijon mustard
    2-3 cloves garlic, smooshed (more or less to taste)
    1# chicken breasts, flattened
    2C sliced shrooms (we usually use 3 or 4 cups )
    1/2C low sodium chicken broth
    1/4t thyme (we use more)

    Method:

    Marinate flattened chicken breasts in dijon, 3T vinegar and garlic for 2+ hours. (The longer the better)

    1) In nonstick skillet heat 1T oil. Add chicken & marinade. Saute until cooked through (usually about 10 minues, sometimes longer depending on thickness). Transfer to platter and keep warm.

    2) Heat remaining 1T oil in skillet. Add shrooms & saute. Add broth, thyme, & remaining vinegar (*I usually add more vinegar, and you might want to have a little extra broth handy incase you want to add it if the pan dries out ) Cook, stirring occaisionally until shrooms are deep brown.

    3) Return chicken to pan to reheat and allow flavors to mingle

    4 servings = 4pts each

    We usually serve this over jasmine rice, which is 1 point per 1/4C. This is one of our favorite chicken dishes, DH loves it, and chicken dishes are not something he usually likes

    It took me...probably 6 months until I got to the point that I had alot of stuff like what is in this recipe stocked. I didn't used to have balsalmic vinegar...as a matter of fact, before ww I didn't even know what it was (now I love it!!). I had to change my concept of what "staples" were needed in my kitchen!

    I started using vinegar when I went on the South Beach Diet a couple yrs ago. Before that it was just cooking oil.

    I like making BLT's and cooking green bell peppers in the balsamic vinegar and putting that and avacado on the BLT. DH thought it was weird but after he tried it he told me to make him one.
