Napa Chicken

21 Mar

This is inspired by the Napa Chicken at Applebees. It’s pretty tasty, and the whole meal (this and the roasted potatoes) together is less than 500 Calories.


– 12 oz of boneless chicken breasts (3 chicken breasts, 4 oz each)
– Salt, pepper, paprika to taste
– 1 large onion, sliced
– 3 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
– 1/2 cup red wine
– 1 tbsp butter


1. Season chicken with salt, pepper, and paprika on both sides. Grill chicken breasts on medium heat until cooked through. You could also bake them i the weather is bad, but I like them grilled.

2. While chicken is grilling, melt butter in a large skillet. Sautee onions until about halfway done. Add mushrooms and stir until mushrooms begin to soften. Add 1/2 cup red wine to skillet, and cook mixture, stirring occasionally, until wine has reduced to just a few tablespoons of liquid.

3. Divide onion and mushroom mixture evenly between 3 plates, and place a chicken breast on top of onions. Pour any remaining “sauce” in the pan over the chicken.

I serve this with roasted potatoes, just like Applebees does, and altogether the whole meal is less than 500 Calories. Enjoy.
