Chicken And Mushrooms With Asparagus & Herbed Basmati Rice

While we are slowly but surely changing our eating habits as whole lifestyle change, I don’t necessarily go out looking for specifically ‘diet’ recipes. When I picked the main dish recipe I noticed the name, but figured it would be pretty good when I looked over the ingredient list. So we decided the Dukan Diet Chicken and Mushrooms with Asparagus was something we were game to try. The only substitutions that we made were due to the fact that we couldn’t find button mushrooms; so we made do with the regular white mushrooms quartered. Once all of the chopping was done (and there is a fair amount of chopping) it comes together super easy. We were a little concerned there was no ‘sauce’ other than the melded drippings created when you cook the mushrooms – it was perfect! It wasn’t greasy or bland and the tastes really came together in a comforting way that made our mouths smile!

We couldn’t quelch the desire to put this yummy little concoction along with a bed of rice (no surprise here, I seem to be on an infinite rice craving). This time I chose an Herbed Basmati Rice and it was a nice blend of herbs to complete the dinner into a meal that overall wasn’t at all hard to make and was completely satisfying. I started out with the chicken mixture and rice separate, but found when I mixed them together it was an amazing taste!

Just a few of the ingredients we used to make this meal. I was pleased by all the colors!

This was a really delicious meal and filling. For being a 'diet' main dish, we really didn't feel like we were missing anything!
