Chicken Scallopini (My version)

My Chicken Scallopini Recipe
4 Tbsps lemon juice = 10 calories
1 cup vegetable stock = 20 calories
1/4 cup chardonnay = 45 calories
1 Tbsps margarine = 50 calories
4 tsps Capers = 2 calories
16 oz chicken breast = 440 calories
16 oz cooked wheat noodles - 400 calories
1 Tbsp garlic powder = 0 calories
1 Tbsp onion powder = 0 calories
1 Tbsp Italian seasoning = 0 calories
Cooking spray = 0 calories

Pound chicken breasts to 1/4 inch thick.  Warm pan with cooking spray, add 1/2 cup vegetable stock, lemon juice, garlic and onion powder, Italian seasoning, and salt and pepper to taste.  Place chicken breasts in the pan and cook for 3 minutes on each side or until cooked through.  Remove chicken and keep warm (covered).  Add 1/2 cup vegetable stock, chardonnay, margarine, and capers and cook 1-2 minutes or until gently boiling, stirring often.

Place 8 oz noodles (200 calories) and 8 oz of chicken (220 calories) in a bowl, add 5 Tbsps of sauce (25.4 calories) and toss gently until well coated.
Calories per serving: 446 (It was brought to my attention that I messed up my math when I posted this last night.  I checked my count for the day on and it was on so I only messed up the count here.  My apologies).

Note: This was bland!  After dinner I added sliced bella mushrooms and canned artichoke hearts to what was left of the sauce along with another Tbsp of lemon and garlic.  I haven't tried it yet but will for lunch tomorrow. This increases sauce serving to approx 69 calories per cup (not much of an increase really).

4 glasses of water

1 Newton's fruit crisp
1 banana
1 can hearts of palm
8 oz chicken (boiled in veg stock)

  1. Sounds good but just so you know your calorie count is off by quite a bit! You may just want to refigure that...

  2. I have to agree with Renea. Sorry it wasn't too flavorful. :/

  3. Hi Trisha,

    I already fixed the calorie count early this morning. I had originally listed 307 but the noodles and chicken alone were 420. 446 is the correct count for 8 oz noodles, 8 oz chicken, and 5 tbsps sauce.

  4. You have an award over at my blog.. So come pick it up!
