Healthy Chicken

Ok, this post has to be quick, I'm getting a facial in 20! YESSSSSS

But before I get started with this post, I want to say thank you so much for all of your kind words and support through my last struggle. Of course I'm not giving up, not yet anyway. I just needed to hear the reasons why I can't give up right now, because I'd forgotten them. Anyway...

I also wanted to post the recipe that my twitter friend, @ameliawoods and I will be making this weekend. We decided one day to both make the same recipe in the same evening, just for fun. It will be a healthy recipe, and we encourage anyone who wants to join us to join! Saturday night...are you ready??? We're doing an easy chicken's a weight watchers recipe for Lemon Glazed Chicken with Mushrooms. Here's the recipe:

Lemon Glazed Chicken with Mushrooms

Prep time: 2 minutes Cook time: 9 minutes
Points: 4

1 1/2 pounds chicken cutlets (about 8 cutlets)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, divided
Cooking Spray
1 (8 ounce) package sliced fresh mushrooms
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 tablespoon drained capers
Lemon wedges (optional)

1) Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper; drizzle with 2 tablespoons lemon juice
2) Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add chicken; cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until chicken is browned. Remove chicken from pan, and keep warm.
3) Add mushrooms and garlic to pan; saute 3 minutes or until mushrooms are tender. Add remaining 1 tablespoon lemon juice, chicken broth, parsley, and capers. Return chicken to apn. cook, uncovered, 2 to 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Garnish with lemon wedges, if desired.

Yields 4 servings

Let's make dinner on Saturday night! Let me know what you guys think of this recipe. And feel free to follow @ameliawoods and her blog! I will post her blog address shortly as soon as I get it, but I have to run right now or I will be late. So excited!



  1. Hahaha. Glad to see you rallied. Go facial and lemon chicken! Love ya, Diz! Deb

  2. Ooooh yum. I would but bf won't eat mushrooms (man he sucks). Count me in for the next one though, and let me know how it turns out, good luck!!

  3. sounds good, and i think i already have all thsoe ingredients! hope your facial is good!

  4. Lol, I hate mushrooms. But I will just leave those out. I don't know what capers are, but I will google it. But I'm excited about cooking together. I will keep Tweetdeck open while cooking so we can chat about anything.

  5. Ya got your spunk back, Girl! Good to hear it!

    The recipe sounds good; would prefer if Emeril or Wolfgang would stop by and whip it up for me, though.

    Capers are flower buds from a bush that are pickled in vinegar. Seriously! No calories. They are like tangy little olives, but firmer and no fat.
