Weight Watchers Chicken Marsala

The past few weeks have not been good to healthy eating.  But I am back on the healthy eating train.  I decided to come back to healthy eating with a few new recipes.  The first one I tried was the Weight Watcher Chicken Marsala.  

For this recipe, you will need:

2 tsp olive oil   
3 cup(s) fresh mushroom(s), fresh, sliced    1 pound(s) uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast(s)
1 tsp dried thyme
 1/2 tsp table salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup(s) table wine, Marsala variety  
1 1/4 cup(s) canned beef broth, reduced-sodium, divided
1 1/2 Tbsp cornstarch   


  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and sauté until tender and releasing liquid, about 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, place chicken on a plate and season both sides with thyme, salt and pepper. Move mushrooms to outer edge of skillet once cooked. Place chicken in center of skillet and cook until golden, about 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  • Add wine to skillet; simmer 1 minute. Add 3/4 cup of broth and simmer, uncovered, until chicken is tender and cooked through, about 8 minutes.
  • Dissolve cornstarch in remaining 1/2 cup of broth in a small bowl; add to skillet. Simmer until sauce thickens, stirring constantly and incorporating mushrooms into the liquid, about 1 minute. Serve chicken with mushroom sauce spooned over top. 
I served the one chicken breast with 1/3 cup of sauce over a 1/2 cup of wheat pasta.  The chicken Marsala is 5 points without the pasta and with pasta 8 points.  The recipe was delicious.  The chicken stayed moist.  I definitely will be making this again.
