Tonight’s clean eats dinner is a cleaned-up version of an oldie but goodie: chicken stroganoff. While traditional stroganoff uses sour cream, this version subs nonfat plain Greek yogurt— reducing the fat but retaining the flavor! Check out the recipe:
Chicken Stroganoff (Serves 4)
1 pound of chicken breast (about 4 chicken breasts)
1 Can of cream of mushroom soup (a clean variety— I used Amy’s)
1 Cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
1/4 Cup chopped red onion
2 Chopped garlic cloves
1/2 Cup chicken broth
1 Cup chopped mushrooms
1/4 Cup whole wheat flour
Place chicken on the bottom of the slow cooker, then mix together the remaining ingredients, except for the whole wheat flour, and pour over the chicken. Cook on low for 5 hours. Then, add in the whole wheat flour, and cook on high for another hour. Once done, remove the chicken breasts, and blend the remaining liquid in a blender to remove any lumps. Serve the chicken stroganoff over veggies, whole wheat pasta, rice, couscous, or whatever else you’d like. Enjoy!
See? Simple as that. You can still have your favorite foods and eat clean!
