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 Shallots

Makes 4 Servings
1 Serving = 6 PointsPlus™

2 TBSP light butter, divided
1 TBSP Olive Oil
4 (4 oz each) boneless/skinless chicken breasts, pounded thin
salt & pepper to taste
2 shallots, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/3 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup fat-free/low-sodium chicken broth

Melt 1 TBSP of the butter and heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Season chicken with salt & pepper and brown on both sides in the skillet. Cover and continue cooking @10 minutes or until juices run clear. Remove from skillet, set aside and keep warm.

Mix shallots and garlic into skillet over medium heat and cook until tender. Stir in wine and cook until heated through. Stir in broth and continue cooking for 5 minutes or until reduced and slightly thickened. Mix in remaining butter until melted.

Plate the chicken and serve with the sauce over the chicken.

MY SPIN: The only thing I would do differently if I was making this for just me and my husband would be to add more garlic.....but we love garlic.

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)!
