If you're looking for a comforting dish that is both delicious and low in Points, look no further than this chicken and mushroom stroganoff recipe! Made with ZeroPoint skinless chicken breast instead of beef, this dish is a healthier take on the classic stroganoff. The creamy sauce is made with a combination of mushrooms, garlic, and paprika, and is thickened with flour. Top it off with some wilted spinach and serve with brown rice for a filling and satisfying meal. And with the option to store leftovers in the fridge or freezer, you can enjoy this meal again and again!
