Cooking Light MARCH 2002

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 potato and 1/2 cup chicken mixture)

Ingredients

  • 4 baking potatoes (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken thighs (about 12 ounces), cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped onion
  • 1 (8-ounce) package presliced mushrooms
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Preparation

Pierce potatoes with a fork; arrange in a circle on paper towels in microwave oven. Microwave at high 16 minutes or until done, rearranging potatoes after 8 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes.

Combine chicken, flour, paprika, salt, and pepper in a large zip-top plastic bag; seal and shake to coat.

Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken mixture, onion, mushrooms, and garlic; saute 5 minutes. Add broth; bring to a boil. Cook 6 minutes or until chicken is done and the sauce thickens, stirring frequently. Remove from heat; stir in sour cream.

Split potatoes open with fork; fluff pulp. Divide chicken mixture evenly over potatoes; sprinkle with parsley.
