HG's Jumpin Jack Chicken with Mashies Platter













The Full Monty...

No time for chit-chat. We're making over an entire meal with a fraction of the fat & calories of the restaurant version. It's our Jumpin' Jack Chicken with Mashies Platter!

Ingredients:

For Sides
3 oz. cubed red potato (1 - 2 small potatoes), not peeled
1 1/2 cups chopped cauliflower
1 1/2 tbsp. fat-free sour cream
1 tbsp. fat-free nondairy liquid creamer (like Coffee-mate's)
Dash salt, or more to taste
1 1/2 cups frozen broccoli florets
1 tsp. dry country-style/white gravy mix (like McCormick's)
Dash black pepper, or more to taste
Optional: reduced-fat Parmesan-style grated topping

For Chicken
1 strip center-cut or turkey bacon
6 oz. raw boneless skinless lean chicken breast, pounded to 1/2-inch thickness
Dash each salt & black pepper, or more to taste
1 tbsp. BBQ sauce (about 45 calories per 2-tbsp. serving)
2 tbsp. shredded reduced-fat cheddar & Monterey Jack cheese (or 4-cheese blend)
1 tbsp. diced tomato
1 tbsp. chopped scallions

Directions:
In a covered microwave-safe bowl, nuke potatoes & cauliflower with 2 tbsp. water for 6 minutes, until very tender. Drain any excess water. Add sour cream, creamer, & salt. Mash well. If you like, add more salt. Cover to keep warm. Nuke broccoli in a covered microwave-safe bowl with 2 tbsp. water for 4 minutes, until thawed & hot. Drain excess water. Cover to keep warm.

Cook bacon per package directions (without added fat). Halve & set aside. Season chicken with salt & pepper. Bring a pan sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Cook chicken for 5 minutes per side, until cooked through. Turn heat off, but keep chicken in the pan on the stove. Top with BBQ sauce, bacon, & cheese. Cover and let cheese melt.

Combine dry gravy mix with 1/3 cup water in a microwave-safe bowl. Nuke for 2 minutes. Stir well. Nuke for 1 - 2 more minutes, until thickened. Season with pepper, stir well, and set aside. Plate mashies & veggies, reheating if needed. Spoon gravy over mashies. If you like, sprinkle veggies with Parm-style topping, salt, and/or pepper. Plate chicken, and top with tomatoes & scallions. Eat!

HG Alternative! Worried the rest of that liquid creamer will expire before you use it all? Go for powdered creamer (prepared) instead -- it's got a longer shelf life. Yay!
