Balsamic Chicken with Mushrooms

I'm going to be posting a lot of Weight Watchers recipes in the next couple months. I decided to go back on ww to lose that first year of marriage/vacation weight. This was one of the first ww recipes I tried, the first time around and it has been a regular on our menu. I love it because it is simple, delicious, and has a low point value. Usually I have most of the ingredients on hand, which makes it a great last minute meal. Serve with veggies for a perfect low calorie meal.


Ingredients:
2 tsp vegetable oil
3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tsp dijon mustard
1 large garlic clove, crushed
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts (four 4 oz pieces)
2 cups mushrooms, small, halved
1/3 cup canned chicken broth
1/4 tsp dried thyme

Directions:
Heat 1 tsp of oil in a nonstick skillet.

In a medium bowl, mix 2 tbsp vinegar, mustard, and garlic. Add chicken and turn to coat. Transfer chicken and marinade to skillet. Saute chicken until cooked through, about 3 minutes on each side. Transfer chicken to a platter and keep warm.

Heat remaining tsp of oil in the skillet. Saute mushrooms for one minute. Add broth, thyme, and remaining tbsp of vinegar. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are deep brown, about two minutes longer.

Serve chicken topped with mushrooms.

Servings: 4
Points Plus: 4

This looks delish. One question, it calls for 1/4 cup dried thyme. Is that correct? It seems like a lot of thyme. Thanks!

Sorry about that, I have fixed it. Should be 1/4 tsp.

Simple and looks delicious! I don't have the dijon mustard or this would be dinner tonight. I wonder if I could leave it out or make a substitution....hmmmmm. Thank you for posting this recipe! You have a great blog here. I'm going to look around some more. Have a great evening, Candace

I make a similar dish but my recipe does not have Dijon in it - I can't wait to make it again your way! (I like your square white plates too!)
