Simple can be delicious, try this no-salt chicken recipe

Finding new chicken recipes is an obsession of mine that began shortly after my 2012 angiopasty when I cut down on red meat and substituted more chicken and fish meals. So I’m always on the lookout for new chicken recipes.

Cooking Light recently sent me an e-newsletter with a top story entitled One-Dish Chicken Recipes, so I immediately dove in to see what it included. Of the three recipes, only one is suitable to become a no salt, no sugar no fat recipe which I’ll eventually list on my recipe page.

It’s called Sheet Pan Chicken with Roasted Baby Potatoes and involves chicken breasts and baby potatoes as the name implies. I’d substitute small red potatoes to cut sugar and also leave out the salt called for. The recipe also calls for honey, cut it to less if you worry about sugar.

Here’s the complete ingredient list with my comments:

Cooking spray
8 ounces small Yukon gold potatoes (about 1 inch)
1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard
1 tablespoon minced fresh tarragon
1 tablespoon dry white wine
1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme
1 teaspoon honey
2 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
1 teaspoon canola oil

For cooking directions click here. I know, someone left me an angry comment that I should put the directions in my post, but honestly cutting and pasting seems a waste of time to me when you can simply click through and read the full original post, so click here and enjoy.
