Bistro Chicken

A nice warm dinner for the crisp nights we have been having here in North Texas. I served this over a bed of whole wheat angel hair pasta and added a tossed salad and sour dough rolls to complete the meal. One of the best parts about it was that it took less than thirty minutes from start to finish! Very little prep went into it..but I think next time I’ll add some fresh zucchini or squash for an added healthy kick and color pop.

Also, I changed the ingredients & shaved about 20% of the calories and half the fat!!

  5. You had me at the 30 minutes from start to finish. That quickly grabbed my attention! And with the temps dropping around here… this does look very much like a "warm and fuzzy" kind of dinner.
