Tonight I decided to make one of my quick dinner recipes, Chicken Stroganoff. It is so easy but yet so tasty. I make this for two but you could double or triple the recipe for more.
Here is what you will need to create this dish.
- one chicken breast
- 1 tsp of olive oil
- 1 tbsp of butter
- 4 to 5 cremini mushrooms
- one garlic clove
- 1 1/2 to 2 cups of chicken stock
- 4 oz cream cheese
- 1/2 tsp of All Season Salt
- Salt and pepper
- wide noodles
So lets get this going. You will be so excited on the taste but you even love that it is low in calories too.
I prepare the chicken buy cutting the chicken in to bite size pieces and then saute them in the olive oil.
While the chicken is cooking I slice the mushrooms and dice the garlic clove.
When chicken is cooked through add the mushrooms and cook them until softened. Add Garlic and let it saute for a few minutes.
While this is sauteing cook your noodles per directions on package. I use whole wheat noodles because of the calories but you can use whatever is your favorite.
Then add the chicken stock to pan and bring to a boil.
While this is coming up to a boil, cut the 4 oz’s of cream cheese into even pieces.
Add this to the chicken stock when it boils. I know it will look like it is not melting together but keep stirring it until the cheese has melted completely. Turn down to low and let it thicken. I add a tsp of All Season Salt because it just gives this dish a great flavor.
Your sauce should look like this.
Drain and the butter to the noodles. Top the noodles with the sauce and you then have created Chicken Stroganoff. You will not be disappointed. I figured the calories and it is about 375 calories a serving and so tasty.
I hope you try it. You can always add more veggies too. Green beans would be good and would not add that many calories.
