What I ate for dinner: Comfort Food Edition

We all love our comfort foods, but lets face it we can't eat them everyday. Today I had a taste for something smothered in gravy, and decided I'd make chicken. I added steamed white rice and green beans to compliment on the side.

I used Perdue Fit and Easy 98% fat free thin cut boneless skinless chicken breast. I love the Perdue Fit and Easy, because 4 oz yields you only 100 calories, 2grams of fat, and 26 grams of protein. There is no animal by products, added hormones, or steroids in this chicken. One can of low sodium cream of mushroom soup and a cup of milk.

All the seasonings I used

I seasoned the chicken generously on both sides then sauteed them in extra virgin olive oil. I cooked them about 3 1/2 to 4 minutes on each side.  My chicken breast were quite thin and cooked very fast. Remember you will be adding the chicken breast to the gravy mixture at the end for a few minutes.

Take your chicken breast out and set it aside on a plate. Do not place the chicken on paper towels to drain, because we want all the juicy chicken flavor to remain on the chicken. Now in the same pan add your can of cream of mushroom soup and 1 cup of milk. Stir generously until it becomes smooth using a spoon or whisk. Let it come to a boil.

Next add the chicken breast back to the pan and simmer for about 3 minutes. Then your ready to serve.

Not pictured were some yummy sweet Hawaiian rolls! I sopped the remaining gravy on my plate with them! It was amazing! I had the taste of comfort sans the calories. This is definitely a quick and easy recipe for any cook. It only took 30 minutes to prepare and cook.
