Cooking Video: Italian Chicken in White Wine Mushroom Sauce

1 pkg Chicken
Zesty Italian dressing
herbs/spices of choice
2 Tbs olive oil
Baby bella mushrooms
1 cup white wine/chardonnay

Marinate chicken in dressing & herbs/spices. Cook chicken in 2 Tbs of olive oil. Add mushrooms just before chicken is done. Remove fully cooked chicken & cover to keep warm. Add 1 cup of white wine/chardonnay to mushrooms & heat for a few mins. Poor wine mixture over chicken & enjoy.

Approximately 230 calories for 3 servings. You could get 4 servings out of this which would make it even lower in calories.

Just a few questions, what size package of chicken and is that chicken breasts?
You say 230 calories for 3 servings. Is that 3 servings 230 calories each?
I have no white wine, guess I should use chicken stock, that would make it even less calories for me.
Good recipe although I don't have any ready made spices, I would have to use my own mixture.
I will give this a try tonight.

Yeah the 230 calories was per serving & that was a total guess because I accidentally threw out the package before writing down how many calories were in the package of chicken.

I used a regular sized package of the chicken fillets but breasts would work too.

I'm sure the broth would be just as tasty too. I may have to try that sometime too.

As for herbs/spices, I rarely ever buy pre-made mixtures. They usually have way too much sodium in them. I actually used oregano, basil, parsley, sage, thyme, marjoram, & some garlic (I think).

I hope you enjoy it. Let me know if you try it & what you think of it.
