Low Calorie Parmesan Chicken With Tomato Cream Sauce

Low Calorie Parmesan Chicken With Tomato Cream Sauce created by Derf2440

low calorie version of a nomally high calorie dish(but tastes so good your tastebuds won't believe the calorie count!) I usually make a double batch of the sauce and freeze it, then the next time I make this I only have the chicken and pasta to prepare.Great recipe, even my finicky husband and child will eat this!

    Had this for dinner tonite and my son went crazy! He loved it! He really liked the chicken, which came out juicy and tasted great with the dijon mustard. Made the recipe exactly as written. Will definately make again.
