Low-Fat Chicken Paprikash Recipe

Low-Fat Chicken Paprikash Recipe

You need carbohydrates and protein for optimum recovery after exercise. You'll get high-quality protein from the skinless chicken, and the tomato sauce has vitamin C and lycopene, two key antioxidants. Have rice or noodles and steamed veggies to replenish your glycogen stores.

Ingredients:

  • 2 teaspoon canola oil
  • 1 yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup fat-free, low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 8-ounce can no-salt-added tomato sauce
  • 1/3 cup reduced fat sour cream

Preparation: (Serves 4)

  1. In a large skillet over a medium high heat, saute onion in oil until softened. Sprinkle paprika and cayenne (if using) over onion and stir. Add chicken and cook 5 minutes on each side, until no longer pink.
  2. Add chicken broth and tomato sauce. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Stir in sour cream and cook for two minutes more. Serve over noodles or rice.
