A delicious and healthy version of this traditional chicken dish! This has been one of my favorite chicken recipes for as long as I can remember. My mom got it from Diet Workshop when I was younger.
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 1⁄2 cup diced onion
- 2 tablespoons onion powder
- 1 -3 lb fryer, cut up (or boneless, skinless breasts)
- 1⁄2 cup reduced-calorie Italian dressing
- 12 ounces tomato juice (or 15 oz. tomato sauce)
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon paprika
- salt and pepper
- 1 cup plain low-fat yogurt
- In large skillet, combine water, diced onion, and onion powder; brown chicken in mixture.
- When chicken is brown, add Italian dressing, tomato juice, garlic, paprika, salt, and pepper.
- Cover and cook slowly until chicken is tender (30-40 minutes); remove chicken to plate.
- Add yogurt to sauce, mix well and simmer but DO NOT boil; spoon over chicken.
- This is great served over egg noodles!
This was a great dish. I really didn't know what to expect from this recipe at first but it was so tasty. I used those dehydrated onions, fat free dressing and as I didn't have any tomato juice I used paste and added a bit of water. I made this with skinless breasts which cut the cooking time to about 20 minutes. I served this with steamed cauliflower and broccoli and brown rice. Thanks I will make this again, It was so good!
Easy. I opted for the chicken breasts and used sour cream instead of the yogurt. If I were to make this again, I think I would add some mushrooms to the sauce. The dressing made the sauce a little vinegary for our tastes and the chicken was just a touch dry, but overall it was still okay. Definately worth a try.
This is really a keeper! Some minor changes on my part. I used some homemade chicken broth(sodium-free) in place of the water. Did not have any onion powder, so added a drop or two of onion juice. Used homemade V-8 juice for the tomato juice. With my changes there might have been a slight difference in taste but not much as the items were pretty much ones used already. Needed to clear the cooking range for other uses so I baked this dish. The smell alone brought people running! Served this with jasmine rice with mushrooms, tomato salad and lavash bread. Great meal.Will add to my "Make Again" cookbook.
