Lo Cal Stir Fry

I've decided that I am DONE with my extra weight. That is a great thing to "say" but it's a tough thing to start. This is the kind of recipe that helps you over the hungry days because the entire pan is 9 points. I only ate half for dinner and had lunch the next day.

The other beauty of stir fry is you can throw in whatever you have in the fridge. This is what I had.

1 large skinless Chicken Breast cut into pieces
3/4 C Salsa
1/4 C Water
1 Clove Garlic chopped
1 C Green Beans
1/2 sliced Mushrooms
1/2 small onion Sliced
2 handfuls fresh Spinach

Pan fry your chicken without any oil in a non stick pan. Season with salt and pepper. Add 1/2 C Salsa and 1/4 C water and scrape the bottom of your pan to get all the flavors from the bottom (the fancy word for this is deglazing). Toss in Green beans, mushrooms, garlic and onion. Saute for a couple of minutes. I like my green beans to have a crunch, if you don't...wrap in a wet paper towel and microwave for 1 minute before you toss in the pan.

If it starts to seem to dry, add a little more water. Add spinach and 1/4 C Salsa. Saute until wilted. Add 1 C cooked Brown Rice. Serve.

Pan fry your chicken, should only take a couple of minutes per side.

See all the yummy brown bits on the pan.

Add your salsa and water and deglaze your pan.

Add your vegetables and saute a few minutes.

Spinach and more salsa.

Cook until wilted. Add cooked rice.

Dinner is served.
