Chicken with Honey Beer Sauce

I'm on the constant lookout for good recipes that aren't loaded with fat and calories.  Started my weight-loss journey. Again.

There are many great sites with wonderful, low-cal, recipes.  And they taste great, so please don't tell Maintenance Man that he, too, is on a diet. Shh!!  Mum's the Word.

First, of hopefully many, post is Chicken with honey beer sauce that I found on Cooking Light.  It had good flavor, and it will be wonderful in a salad.  I plugged the nutritional facts into the Weight Watcher calculator, and it is worth 6 Points+! 

Chicken with Honey Beer Sauce


2 Tsp Canola oil
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup beer
2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon whole grain Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon honey


Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.  Add chicken to pan and saute for around 6 minutes, or until done.  Remove chicken from pan but keep warm. Combine beer and next three ingredients and whisk together.  Add to pan and bring to a boil.  Continue to cook for about 3 minutes or until it has reduced down to half.  Return chicken to pan, turn to coat with sauce.  Serve.  


 Hope you try it!
