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 With Mushrooms & Spinach

Makes 4 Servings
1 Serving = 6 PointsPlus™

4 boneless/skinless chicken breasts (@5 oz each)
salt & pepper to taste
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes, drained
1 (5 oz) bag of baby spinach
2 cups thinly sliced mushrooms
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

- Season chicken with salt & pepper.
- Coat large non-stick skillet with spray and place over medium heat. When it's hot, add chicken and cook 5 - 10 minutes or until it's no longer pink and the juices run clear.
- Remove the chicken to a plate, cover to keep warm.
- Add the garlic to the skillet; cook 2 - 3 minutes or until garlic becomes fragrant. Add the tomatoes, spinach & mushrooms. Cook @3 minutes or until liquid is reduce by about half.
- Put chicken back in the skillet and stir the vegetables over/around the chicken. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over all.
- Serve.

MY SPIN: I didn't use any 'salt to taste'......I try to stay away from salt. I would also use more garlic.....love the flavor of fresh garlic!! The spray I used was the olive oil flavored spray. Also, the recipe originally called for the chicken to be cut into 1" pieces.....but I didn't feel like doing that!!!

Hope you enjoy this simple but tasty recipe!

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)!
