Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup chopped dry-packed sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic, divided
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup fat-free milk
  • Hot cooked pasta, optional

Directions

  • Bring 1/2 cup broth to a boil; remove from the heat. Stir in sun-dried tomatoes; let stand for 10 minutes. In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, saute the mushrooms, onion and 1 teaspoon garlic for 1 minute. Stir in the remaining broth; cook 2 minutes longer or until mushrooms are tender. Remove mushroom mixture and set aside.
  • Rub chicken with remaining garlic. In the same skillet, brown chicken in oil for 3 minutes on each side. Stir in tomato mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-12 minutes or until chicken juices run clear. Remove chicken; slice and keep warm.
  • In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch, basil, salt and pepper. Stir in milk until smooth; add to tomato mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in mushroom mixture. Spoon over chicken. Serve with pasta if desired.
