Have you ever looked at what is in foods these days? Have you ever wondered why life has gotten so crazy that we all rely on processed "quick" foods and fast foods? Well I have had my eyes opened recently when we started to realize our oldest child could be ADD. I decided to clean up our diets and turn out lives around. I am a woman, married to a wonderful man who supports everything I do. We have 3 wonderful children who keep us on our toes and every day when I pick them up from school the first things out of their mouths is "mommy what's for dinner" so here it is...

Chicken & Mushroom in a White Wine Sauce

So tonight's dinner was one that everyone loved, cleaned their plate and asked for more...that sounds like a seal of approval to me!

Chicken & Mushroom in 
a White Wine Sauce
Serves 5

1 1/2 lbs chicken breast (cut into strips)
3 tsp butter
3 tsp olive oil
3-4 cloves of garlic, minced (or is you are like me just a scoop)
12 oz sliced mushrooms
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp white wine
1/2 cup organic fat free chicken broth
Chopped fresh parsley (I actually use the freeze dried stuff)

Season Chicken to your own liking...heat a large pan and add in 1/2 of the butter and 1/2 of the olive oil.  Add sliced chicken breast and cook until no longer pink. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.

Add remaining butter and olive oil to pan and add garlic.  Cook a few minutes till the garlic is cooked.  Add in mushrooms & S&P and cook for about 5 minutes. Add in white wine & chicken broth and simmer until the mushrooms are cooked and broth is reduced.

Add back in chicken and heat a few more minutes...sprinkle with parsley and serve while hot.

VERDICT: like I said everyone loved the chicken and even asked for 2nds...I will be doing this again.  I served this with high fiber butter noodles & steamed broccoli & cauliflower for a dinner that was worth a total of 7 points...can't beat that now can you.
