Recipe of the week – Skinny Chicken Stroganoff

Recipe of the week – Skinny Chicken Stroganoff
My recipe this week, ”Skinny” Chicken Stroganoff with Sweet potato mash is inspired by Liezl Clause, as she has quite a good eating plan (not a diet, more of a life style change).  The nice thing about this eating plan is that there are still some of the “nicer” indulgences that you are allowed, in moderation of course, so I have gone through all of these things and come up with this lovely “skinny chicken stroganoff” recipe.

Difficulty:  Easy
Prep Time:  10 Minutes
Cooking time:  20 Minutes
Serves:  2

250g Skinless, boneless chicken breast
250g Mushrooms, cubed
1 small onion, roughly cubed
2 sprigs oregano
2 sprigs of thyme
1 clove garlic, finely sliced
1 TBSP tomato paste
1 gherkin, finely diced
1 leek, sliced
½ cup low fat cream cheese
½ cup fat free yoghurt
½ cup water
2 tsp paprika
1 tot whisky
Salt and pepper to taste
1 TBSP Olive oil
2 medium sized sweet potatoes, peeled and finely sliced (this allows them to cook in 15 minutes)
1 TBSP Cream
Salt and pepper to taste
Cook the sweet potatoes until soft, add salt, pepper and cream and mash as to make mashed potatoes.
Heat a sautéed pan, start to fry off the chicken, when it starts to colour, add in the onions and garlic, continue to stir almost continually, as there is not much oil it will tend to stick quite quickly. Now add in the paprika, salt, pepper, leeks, tomato paste and herbs and continue to sauté for another 2 minutes.
Add in the rest of the ingredients and let it simmer for about 5 to 8 minutes, taste and adjust seasoning if needed.
