Betty Crocker's Diabetes Cookbook shares a recipe! Dijon and mushrooms turn boring chicken into tasty chicken that can be on your dinner table in less than 30 minutes.

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 lb)
  • 1/4 cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive or canola oil
  • 1/2 cup roasted garlic-seasoned chicken broth (from 14-oz can)
  • 1 jar (4.5 oz) sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • Chopped fresh thyme, if desired

Directions

  • 1
    Between pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper, place each chicken breast smooth side down; gently pound with flat side of meat or rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thick. In shallow pan, stir together flour, salt and pepper.
  • 2
    In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Coat both sides of chicken with flour mixture. Cook chicken in hot oil 6 to 8 minutes, turning once, until chicken is no longer pink in center. Remove chicken to serving plate; cover to keep warm.
  • 3
    Stir broth into skillet. Heat to boiling over medium-high heat. Stir in mushrooms and mustard. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until slightly thickened. Spoon sauce over chicken. Sprinkle with thyme.

  • For a meal that's sure to satisfy, serve this saucy chicken dish with a small baked potato, cooked green beans and 1/2 cup cut-up fresh fruit. Add a slice of bread, and you're still at only 3 Carbohydrate Choices.
  • Try this recipe with pork tenderloin. Cut the tenderloin into 1-inch slices, and flatten as directed in step 1. Continue as directed, cooking until pork is no longer pink in center.
