Monterey Mushroom Chicken

March 5, 2012

6 skinless boneless chicken breasts

1/2 cup egg substitute

1  1/2 cups crushed reduced-fat Ritz crackers

1/2 tsp. seasoned salt or to taste

1/2 tsp. garlic powder or to taste

1/2 tsp. onion powder or to taste

1 – 1  1/2 pounds fresh mushrooms, sliced

4 T. Brummel and Brown butter, divided (not shown in pictures)

12 slices Deli Select ham

1 cup reduced fat mozzarella cheese, grated 

Place one chicken breast at a time, in a zip lock bag.  Pound with the smooth side of a meat mallet.  Flatten chicken to 1/4 inch thickness.

Pour egg susbtitute into bowl.  Set aside.

Put crackers in a small zip lock bag and crush.  Add seasonings to the bag and shake to mix.  Pour crumbs on a plate.

Dip chicken in egg and then in crumbs – set aside.

Saute mushrooms in 2 T. butter until tender – remove and set aside.

Melt remaining butter.  Add chicken and cook over medium heat for about 5-6 minutes on each side.

Place chicken on foil-lined cookie sheet, top with ham, mushrooms and cheese. (This is just two chicken breasts – pounded down.  Big serving for one meal or split it in two for half the points!)

Broil for 3-4 minutes until the cheese is melted.

Weight Watchers:  8 PointsPlus per serving – Because the chicken is flattened to 1/4 inch thick, one chicken breast makes a big serving, or two smaller servings.  I ate one for dinner and one for lunch the next day.
