Today’s Menu: Chicken Tenders w/ Rice, Sweet Peppers, Mushrooms, and Garlic Bread

 
Beautiful day out today, about 45 degrees and sunny! tried another new one for dinner tonight, ChickenTenders w/ Rice, Sweet Chicken and Sweet Peppers 003Peppers, Mushrooms, and Garlic Bread. New recipe and some new ingredients.

 

 

 

Chicken Tenders w/ Rice, Sweet Peppers, Mushrooms, and Garlic Bread tonight for dinner. As I said I tried a couple of new ingredients to prepare dinner tonight. The Chicken Tenders were Weight Watchers Chicken Tenders. I purchased them at Walmart and haven’t seen them elsewhere yet. They come frozen and preweighed at 2 oz. Each tender is 99% fat-free and only 60 calories and 0 carbs. You can bake them or prepare them by stove top, which is how I made them. To prepare them I seasoned the chicken with sea salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heated 1 tablespoons of the oil. Then sautéed the chicken over medium-high heat, turning once, until gold on both sides, about 8 minutes total. Transferred the Chicken to a plate.

 

Now to prepare the rest of meal I needed 1 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 2 cups thinly sliced mixed Red, Yellow, Orange and/or Green Bell Peppers, Small Package of Baby Bella Sliced Mushrooms, 1 large garlic cloves, finely chopped, 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil, 1 tablespoons high-quality Balsamic Vinegar, and 1 Serving of Rice A Roni (Chicken Flavor).

 

Using the same skillet as the Chicken was fried in add the remaining 1 tablespoons of oil to the skillet and reduce the heat to medium. Cook the bell peppers, stirring often, until just softened, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute, Stir in about half of the basil and the vinegar. Return the chicken and any accumulated juices to the skillet. Reduce the heat to medium-low, add the sliced mushrooms. Simmer until the chicken is cooked through, about 3 minutes. Stir in the remaining basil and season with salt and pepper. As this was finishing I prepared the Rice A Roni, microwaved for 3 1/2 minutes and served. I also baked some Walmart Bakery Garlic Knot Bread. This makes one delicious chicken dish! The sweet peppers and Balsamic Vinegar are a great pairing with the chicken. For dessert/snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn.
