So we survived our season of fall sports.
No more basketball and no more track, at least for now. We’re taking the next eight weeks off from anything, until after the holidays.
This means I don’t need to cook in my crock pot so many nights a week any longer.
On Monday night I made a new, non-crock pot chicken recipe. Everyone seemed to like it except Alex, because as she reminded me, chicken IS on her don’t like list. She had leftover soup. Chicken Soup.
This recipe is one I’d found on a site I use often: Skinnytaste.com, which has lots of lowfat recipes. It seemed similar to a Chicken Marsala, which we all like, but with slightly different flavors.
I’m glad I gave it a try. It was easy and tasty and I’d definitely do it again.
Here is the recipe as is seen on Skinnytaste.com. Be sure to visit their site and check out their other recipes too!

8 chicken tenderloins, 16 oz total
2 tsp butter
2 tsp olive oil
1/4 cup all purpose flour* (use rice flour if gluten free)
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
12 oz sliced mushrooms
1/4 cup white wine
1/3 cup fat free chicken broth
salt and fresh pepper to taste
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
Preheat oven to 200°. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Lightly dredge in flour.
Heat a large skillet on medium heat; when hot add 1 tsp butter and 1 tsp olive oil. Add chicken to the skillet and cook on medium heat for about 5 minutes on each side, or until chicken is no longer pink. Set aside in a warm oven.
Add additional oil and butter to the skillet, then garlic and cook a few seconds; add mushrooms, salt and pepper stirring occasionally until golden, about 5 minutes.
Add wine, chicken broth, parsley; stir the pan with a wooden spoon breaking up any brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Cook a few more minutes or until the liquid reduces by half. Top the chicken with the mushroom sauce and serve.
