Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Chicken Marsala

Makes 3 servings
1 Serving using Marsala cooking wine = 6 PointsPlus™
1 Serving using low fat/sodium chicken broth = 5 PointsPlus™

1/2 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
3 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
2 TBSP olive oil
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped OR 2 tsp minced garlic
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley OR 1 TBSP parsley flakes
1/2 cup Marsala cooking wine OR 1/2 cup low fat/sodium chicken broth

1. Mix flour, salt and pepper together. Coat chicken; shake off excess flour mixture. Set aside.

2. Heat oil in 10" skillet over medium-high heat. Cook garlic, mushrooms & parsley in oil 5 minutes, stirring frequently.

3. Add chicken to skillet. Cook uncovered @8 minutes, turning once, until chicken is browned.

4. Add cooking wine (or chicken broth). Cook uncovered 8 - 10 minutes, turning once, until chicken is no longer pink in the center.

I used the minced garlic, parsley flakes and Marsala cooking wine......and this was delicious!

I served this (picture at the top) with roasted potatoes (recipe on my blog) and peas & carrots. 

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court! *The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark.*

Loving Life(time)!
