Smothered Chicken

I've been challenging myself to cook more often when I'm at my fiance's house. Lately, the cooking has been so-so until now. This recipe has been the BEST recipe I've made, and it's Weight Watchers friendly!!! I made this using the non-crockpot method, because we didn't want the meat too tender. My fiance requested rice with this dish, instead of pasta as well, which was a WONDERFUL combination :).

I was given this recipe from a knottie on my club board. It was a pdf form of Weight Watchers recipes, so I don't really know the original source, however, I will say this isn't mine. I did adapt it, though, for more flavor.

Smothered Chicken
adapted from Weight Watchers Crockpot recipe pdf (from a knottie)

4 whole boneless skinless chicken breasts
12 ounces Mushrooms -- fresh
1 can 98% fat-free Cream of mushroom soup
1 can 98% fat-free Cream of chicken soup
1 can French Onion Soup
1/2 onion (added)
1 clove garlic (added)

Cut chicken breasts into stew size chunks, and sauté while washing and cutting mushrooms in half. Then simply add all other ingredients to chicken and simmer about 1 hour (I did this for half an hour covered and half an hour uncovered). You can also do this in a crock pot and simmer all day 'til dinner. Serve over rice, noodles or potatoes.

This makes 6 servings.

Check out our new funky plates. They match our kitchen perfectly!

Here's a zoom-in of the yumminess!

Points* (without rice): 7

Since I had 1 cup of brown rice with mine, this dinner was 11 points. Yep, a little on the high side, but this was some SERIOUS comfort food. :) I will be making this again when the fall comes!!

That looks REALLY good. I'm all about the sauce and that looks like a nice, thick sauce. Yum!

Amy, this looks really good. I have a couple of old, plus some new, WW cookbooks as well as my Cooking Light cookbooks. Most recipes, no one would guess they were slimmed down. It's more about the portion size, which is why I cook just about anything, just eat less of it and make smart substitutions. I like your blog!! And, you look great!

Looks so saucy and delicious! I will have to try this, minus the mushrooms though! :)
