CAN I OMIT CREAM?


Yes! For those who do not want dairy, or want to make this pasta dish a bit healthier, skip the cream and use chicken broth instead. All you need to do is let the broth cook down a bit more.

Instructions

  • PREPARING CHICKEN BREASTS: Make sure to cut chicken breasts horizontally to make them thin. Paper towel dry the chicken.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, black pepper, garlic powder and Italian seasoning. Stir well to blend. Using a fork or tongs, coat the chicken breasts in the flour mixture by pressing into the mixture with tongs and then flipping the chicken over to coat the other side. Set aside.
  • COOKING CHICKEN BREASTS: Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the skillet is hot, place flour coated chicken breasts in the skillet and cook for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, until golden brown on both sides and cooked through, turning once between cooking, about 8-10 minutes. Remove chicken from pan and set aside.
  • SAUCE: Add butter, diced yellow onion and minced garlic cloves to pan. Cook on medium high until onions and garlic are translucent, about 2 minutes. Next add chopped scallions and tomatoes. Add 1 tablespoon flour to pan and whisk to combine.
  • Now add heavy cream, wine, Italian Seasoning, salt and red pepper flakes. Bring mixture to a simmering point and then add ½ cup of shredded Parmesan cheese. Use a whisk or a wooden spoon and mix it in until you have a smooth mixture.
  • COOKING PASTA according to your package instructions in salty water. I like pasta that is neither too hard nor too soft, so I always cook it Al Dente. Drain, but do not rinse.
  • FINAL ASSEMBLY: Add cooked pasta to the skillet with the sauce and stir to combine on low heat for 2-4 minutes. Taste and add salt, if needed. Return chicken to skillet on top of the pasta and allow it to warm up for an additional 5 minutes.
  • SERVE chicken either on top or next to pasta and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, if desired.

Have you ever had one of those days? You know the ones, they push you to the edge of your rope and then want you to go further? Today was like that for me. My blender leaked my thick smoothie all over the counter right when I needed to run out the door, I went running and my son locked my keys in the van, ugh, the day seemed like it was never going to end. I finally put the kids to bed and what am I craving? Chocolate. Luscious, smooth, divine chocolate. It never lets me down and always seems to help take the stress away. That is why I was thrilled to be able to whip out the new Skinny Cow Divine Filled Chocolates and melt away stress without blasting away my diet.

I know you have all probably heard of the Skinny Cow ice cream treats, but did you know that Skinny Cow now makes chocolates? Divine Filled Chocolates in peanut butter and caramel at that! They are only 130 calories per pack and come with three large pieces of chocolate each! So much better than a small fun sized candy bar with about the same amount of calories and so smooth.

{What Do I Think?}



I have tried the Skinny Cow Divine Filled Chocolates in both peanut butter and caramel and they are both equally good. When I say this is good chocolate, you can take my word for it. It just melts away in your mouth and the soft filled centers just keep on giving the love. Nothing melts my stress away faster than a good piece of chocolate. However, since I have been trying to lose weight, I needed a treat that wasn’t going to undo the hard work I put in all day. With only 130 calories, the packs are large enough to satisfy my cravings without making me remorseful for having eaten them.
