Chicken Smothered in Spinach/Mushrooms, 269
Incredible! 5.0/5
(1 rating)

This was totally yummy. Next time I will make only 2 chicken breasts with only 1 slice of cheese and double the spinach, nuts, onions, and mushrooms using 2 TBS EVOO. If you can find it, use Rotisserie Chicken Seasoning without salt.

You can reduce calories to 243 each serving by using only 2 TBS pecans. It is good either way.

This is a tasty recipe to prepare on the grill on those 92 degree, too-hot-to-cook days. Each chicken breast/salsa mix is wrapped in its own packet. In addition to the ingredients, you need a gas grill and aluminum foil.

Changes for next time: Use 1 24-oz jar of tomato sauce and 1 cup Mozzarella. This will reduce calories to about 176 per serving, which is more in line with my diet of 300 cal per meal. Next time use a 2 quart, 7 x 9 inch casserole dish. WW=6.5

Adapted from Giada de Laurentis. Makes 30 meatballs using a 1-3/4 inch ice cream scoop.

When you substitute 99 % fat free ground Turkey instead of the beef, you will get 40 meatballs at 32 calories per meatball. The meatballs are formed the same way as the beef, but they are divided in half.

This smells heavenly and tastes good. There was not enough sauce with the veggies added. Next time, I will increase all the ingredients except the meat. Defintly needs more sauce. I served over rice. Rice not calculated in the calories.

I can of tomato paste is way over the top. Add the tomato paste in after all the veggies and add in a little at a time until it tastes good. Add the tomato paste and juice after veggies are soft because the tomato increases the time it takes to cook.

Makes 4 cups and serves 8 to 10 soft taco filling with small corn tortilla. This is a Chef Rick Bayless recipe. it is 213 calories for each taco, but 285 calories for a fajita size tortilla. I used a leaf of Romano lettuce instead of tortilla and did not include the calories of the tortilla in the calories.
