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!!!

Peppered Chicken in Mushroom Marsala Sauce

Makes 3 Servings
1 Serving = 4 PointsPlus™

3 boneless/skinless chicken breast (halves, 3 ounces each)
1 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp coarsely ground black pepper
1/8 tsp salt
1 cup fresh sliced mushrooms
1 TBSP I Can't Believe It's Not Butter
1 1/2 TBSP all-purpose flour
1/8 tsp salt
3/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 TBSP Marsala cooking wine

Preheat oven to 425º.

Brush chicken with olive oil and sprinkle with pepper and 1/8 tsp salt. Arrange in a baking dish. Bake uncovered 35 - 40 minutes or until no longer pink.

Meanwhile, for sauce, in a medium saucepan, cook mushrooms in hot I Can't Believe It's Not Butter until tender. Stir in flour and 1/8 tsp salt. Add broth and Marsala. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly.

Place chicken on plates. Spoon/pour mushroom sauce over chicken.


*Remember.....if your pieces of chicken are more than 3 ounces you MUST add more PPs to the value!! Also.....I think the mushroom sauce would be really yummy over pasta or even on a baked potato or turkey cutlets.

And here's a website that Rhonda (hot dog!!!!) turned me onto that I think you might enjoy: www.exercise4weightloss.com.

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)!
