Ingredients & method:
1.Weight watchers bread or pepperidge farms light bread with 50 calories per slice and weight watchers bread does not use high fructose corn syrup.
2.Sliced mushrooms sauteed in a non stick pan with 1 tsp of olive oil and very little salt some basil & some chopped garlic and thinly sliced onions and chilli flakes with some crushed peppercorn.
3.Chicken breast cut into thin strips,boiled and drained( save the chicken stock & use it later) and then sauteed with the mushrooms in the same pan after the mushrooms have been sauteed for 3-4 minutes and still have a crunch to them. make sure there is some moisture in the pan from cooking the mushrooms when you add the chicken strips. This way they will blend well and not stick to the pan and get hard & chewy.
4. Some pesto, I take 1 tsp of pesto and 2 tsp of Greek non fat yogurt with some red chilli flakes and mix it to use it as a spread for the sandwich.
5. Now take the 2 bread slices and put them in the toaster,just to warm them a little. When they pop out,spread some spread.
6. Arrange the chicken and mushrooms on one of the slices and cover it with the other slice and press it with your hand .
Please note: This sandwich is high in proteins and it would be a good idea to have it for breakfast or brunch as the protein intake will jump start the metabolism and aid in burning calories faster also keeps you feeling full for long.
Mushroom is a low calorie food and most appropriate for low calorie dieting. Again a good source of protein.
Fage 's( pronounced fa-yeh!) is all natural non fat yogurt with 20 gms protein per serving (227 gms)
So what are you waiting for,enjoy this yummy sandwich with fewer calories and more protein :)
