Recipe: Chicken Breasts Baked in Wine

December 11, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Tonight we had a delicious dinner of chicken breasts that were baked in wine, plus glazed carrots.  I would say this meal is pretty South Beach Diet-worthy, probably Phase 2 because of the carrots.  There is also the Splenda brown sugar blend in both, but for the chicken I’m not sure how much really gets absorbed by the chicken and how much just stays in the dish.  So use your own judgement.  Regardless, it was super tasty!  According to my calculations, the whole meal came in at under 400 calories.  It might be neat to have this with a little brown rice sometime as well.  The original recipe is posted here and below it is tweaked for 3 people with some modifications to make it even more healthy than it already was.

Ingredients:

  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 3/4 cup dry white wine
  • 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup less sodium soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. water
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. Splenda brown sugar blend
  • 1/2 tsp. oregano

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine all ingredients in a deep dish.  Bake for 1.5 hours.

Ease: Prep is way easy, but the long baking time for me makes it a weekend dinner.  However, the juicy chicken is well worth it in the end!

Whole-Family Appeal: 3 of 3 thumbs up – we all loved it!

Wouldeatitagain Factor: For sure.  The breasts we had were about 6 oz. each so we saved part to have for lunch over salads this week.
