Skinny Chicken Stroganoff Stuffed Potato

 chicken-stroganoff-potato_sk
This comfort food favorite is really delicious! It’s made with similar ingredients to classic stroganoff but I used fat-free sour cream. It’s a wonderful substitute for regular sour cream. Plus, I cooked the mushrooms and onions in the microwave to soften instead of sautéed in a pan with oil. Each very satisfying serving, including a baked potato has 406 calories, 4 grams of fat and 6 Blue WW Freestyle SmartPoints and 6 Green.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 18 minutes


Ingredients

2 cups onions, chopped

4 cups mushrooms, sliced (10 oz bag)

4 cups (1-pound) cooked chicken, diced, see prep tip below

1 cup fat-free sour cream or Non-fat plain Greek yogurt

½ cup white wine

½ tablespoon cornstarch

1 teaspoon paprika

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon fresh ground pepper

5 baking potatoes (5 ounces each)

Scallions or chives, chopped, for topping (optional)


Instructions

1. Scrub and pat dry potatoes. Pierce with a fork. Cook each one at a time in the microwave for about 6-8 minutes, turn over once during cooking.  Or, bake in 400 degree oven for about an hour. 

2. Place onions and mushrooms in a microwave safe bowl and cook in microwave for 3-4 minutes or until soft. Drain liquid.

3. In large, nonstick pan, add the cooked onions and mushrooms, cooked chicken, sour cream, wine, cornstarch, paprika, salt and pepper. Mix well and be sure the cornstarch is dissolved. Bring to a boil. Turn heat down to simmer. Cook uncovered for 10 minutes. Stir often.

4. To serve: Place 1 potato on each dinner plate. Slice each potato open and mash well, using a fork. Top each with 1¼ cup of stroganoff.  If desired, sprinkle each with a little scallions or chives. 

Serves 5 (each serving, 1 baked potato and about 1¼ cup Stroganoff)
