Mmmm... Chicken done simple

I have had a few unfortunate incidents with my pictures recently and a few of the things I made for dinner this week did not end up being blog worthy because of it. But tonight was the night to get going again. I saw this recipe on my friend Alanna's blog, Artists in the Kitchen, and it definitely looked healthy enough for my WW lifestyle.

This meal was so easy to put together. It was ready in under 30 and will definitely be added to our rotation. Alanna was right with the flavor. I too thought it might be lacking in that department but it was great! And I used real butter. I didn't think that a recipe this simple needed less of anything. And it included wine! What's a better excuse to finish up the bottle you have in the fridge? I used a bottle I purchased for... brace yourselves... $2!! Yep. That's right. It was on sale for $5 and then I had a coupon for $3 off. YAY for saving money!

Chicken and Asparagus in White Wine Sauce
  • 2 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 pound asparagus spears, trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; pound to 1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet or small heavy skillet. Sprinkle chicken breasts evenly with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Place flour in a shallow dish. Dredge chicken in flour. Add chicken to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken from pan; keep warm. Add wine, broth, and garlic to pan, scraping pan to loosen browned bits; cook 2 minutes. Add asparagus; cover and cook 3 minutes or until asparagus is crisp-tender. Remove from heat; stir in parsley and juice. Serve asparagus and sauce with chicken.

2 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half, about 5 asparagus spears, and about 2 tablespoons sauce)

6 WW points a serving
