Introduction

This is a recipe I've tweaked a little from www.southbeachdiet.com. I use chicken thighs instead of breasts, regular mushrooms if I don't have cremini, and garlic. It's almost too delicious to be a Phase I recipe! This is a recipe I've tweaked a little from www.southbeachdiet.com.

  • I made it as written, but subbed thyme for the rosemary. It was definitely good, but it could be better. I would agree that it needs some garlic. I'm also thinking next time I'll add a couple tablespoons of chopped fresh parsley at the end. - 8/23/15
