This is a great dish because it's simple, doesn't cause too much of a mess, and really healthy for you!
I usually buy a package of thin-sliced, boneless chicken breasts at the grocery store for this recipe - the chicken is already cut thin so you can use it "as is" which is really nice.
I also like to add a lot of seasoning - the garlic, salt and pepper is nice (and it's worth the time to chop up the fresh garlic), but I like to add onion powder and seasoned salt instead of regular salt. And of course, since the secret to cooking with wine is to use something marginally drinkable I usually use Barefoot chardonnay.
What I love about this recipe:
- It's simple - you can come home from a long day at work and have dinner ready in less than half an hour
- It's super-healthy for you and a great diet recipe at approx. 250 calories per serving
- You can make it in one dish - yay!
- You can substitute/add almost any veggies that you already have on hand. I love making this dish with red pepper slices, sweet onion and portabella mushrooms!
However if I'm trying to eat healthy - like now, try it paired with:
- Summer squash (best in season), steamed, with a tsp. margarine and lightly seasoned with salt and pepper
- A nice organic baby romaine salad, and a baked potato with some plain yogurt if you insist on having a starch. A side note on the salad, Price Chopper brand light bleu cheese dressing is awesome, cheap and pretty decent as far as calories and fat go!
