Weightwatchers Chicken in a Creamy Tarragon Sauce
This is another WeightWatchers recipe and is low fat but tastes really indulgent with a creamy sauce that even uses white wine. Leeks are in season in autumn and winter so it's a great recipe to make at this time of year.
According to WeightWatchers this has 6 points per serving.
To serve 4, you need:
2 leeks, washed and sliced
2 cloves garlic, sliced
1/2 a chicken stock cube
150ml WeightWatchers Fruity white wine (you can use any white wine but that will change the WW Points if you are counting them)
400g skinless boneless chicken breasts
100g very low fat fromage frais
100g half-fat crème fraiche
2 tsp wholegrain mustard
1/2 bunch fresh tarragon
800g floury potatoes, peeled and chopped
4 tsp low fat spread
4 tbsp. skimmed milk
Bring a pan of water to the boil then summer the potatoes.
Meanwhile put the sliced leeks and garlic in a deep frying pan with a lid. Mix the chicken stock cube with a splash of boiling water and pour into the pan. Cover and steam over a low to medium heat for 10-15 mins until the leeks are tender. Add the wine, bring to the boil and simmer for 1 minute.
Cut the chicken breasts into 12 pieces and add to the pan. Turn down the heat, cover and cook for 10-15 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.
Drain the potatoes and mash with the low fat spread and milk.
Stir in the fromage frais, crème fraiche, mustard and tarragon and heat through. Season to taste. Serve with the mashed potatoes and green veg.
Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo of the finished dish but taste is more important than looks anyway!
