Farmhouse Chicken Dinner
Mix flour and pepper in shallow dish. Add chicken; turn to coat both sides of each piece. Gently shake off excess flour. Heat dressing in large nonstick skillet on medium heat. Add chicken, meat-sides down; cook 5 to 6 min. or until golden brown. Turn chicken. Add carrots, onions and 1 cup broth; cover. Simmer on medium-low 20 min. or until chicken is done (165 degrees F).Advertisement
Meanwhile, cook rice as directed on package; spoon onto serving platter. Use slotted spoon to remove chicken and vegetables from skillet; place over rice. Cover to keep warm.
Add Neufchatel and remaining broth to skillet; cook on high heat until Neufchatel is melted and sauce is well blended, stirring constantly. Simmer on medium-low heat 3 to 5 min. or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. Spoon over chicken and vegetables; top with parsley.
We've taken a family favorite and made a few changes that will result in a savings of both fat and calories. We browned the chicken in KRAFT Light Zesty Italian Dressing instead of oil; used PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese instead of whipping cream; and didn't dip the chicken in eggs before coating it with flour. All these changes will save you 50 calories and 19 g of fat per serving.
Substitute 8 bone-in chicken thighs with skin removed for the chicken breasts.
