Balsamic Chicken with Mushrooms – I can’t believe it’s Weight Watchers

Jennifer and I are doing the Weight Watchers Program and when I saw this Balsamic Chicken with Mushrooms recipe, I knew it would be perfect for dinner. We have both had success with the program and are very proud of our accomplishments so far.  We will share more about our weight loss journey in a later post…stay tuned 🙂

Part of our success is cooking healthy meals. I really enjoy browsing through the Weight Watchers site for recipes. The recipes need to be  easy and quick and packed with flavor.

This balsamic chicken weight watchers recipe doesn't take many ingredients. It was also incredibly easy to make.

Last night it was time to try  another Weight Watchers recipe.  I love the Kitchen Companion App that is available to Weight Watchers members.  I just entered into the recipe search engine the food I had in the fridge that I thought would compliment each other – chicken, mushrooms and garlic. Voila – Balsamic Chicken with Mushrooms popped up.

Here’s what you need – not including the chicken:

 Weight Watchers Balsamic Chicken with Mushrooms ingredients. You need mushrooms, vegetable oil, chicken, thyme, garlic, dijon mustard, basil, and balsamic vinegar.
