Healthy Recipe: Easy Chicken Tetrazzini

Finally, here is a healthy recipe for this week. It's a good quick recipe and came from Weight Watchers a few years ago.

Easy Chicken Tetrazzini

1 tablespoon red.-cal. margarine
1/2 cup scallions, chopped (about 5 scallions)
8 oz. button mushrooms, sliced
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup fat-free chicken broth
1/2 cup skim milk
1/2 pound cooked, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
1/4 cup canned pimentos, drained and sliced (I never use these)
2 tablespoons sherry cooking wine
3-1/2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
8 oz. uncooked spaghetti, broken into thirds and cooked

1. Melt margarine in a large saucepan over med-high heat. Add scallions and mushrooms; cook until tender, stirring, about 5 minutes. Combine flour, garlic powder, pepper, broth, and milk in a small bowl; mix until well blended. Add flour mixture to saucepan; cook until mixture boils and thickens, stirring constantly, about 10 minutes.

2. Add chicken, pimentos and sherry; cook until thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally, about 2 minutes. Stir in cheese and add cooked spaghetti; toss gently. Yields about 1 cup per serving.

There it is - hope you enjoy. Comfort food recipes always come in handy.

Will be heading back home from my trip next week, so things should get back to "normal", I hope!
