My Aunt Sally won $10,000 for this recipe, plus it is lowfat, simple, and delicious!

This is my slightly healthier spin on it as I use olive oil instead of butter, brown rice instead of white, and lowfat sour cream rather than full fat.


  • Rinse and trim fat off four boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • Marinate for at least 30 minutes (recipe below)
  • Heat skillet over medium high heat, then add 1-2 tablespoons olive or canola oil.
  • Sear chicken breasts on medium high heat for a few seconds on each side, and reduce heat to medium or medium low depending on your stove.
  • Add Marinade
  • Cook about 15 minutes on each side until chicken is tender and white on the inside.
  • Remove chicken and bring marinade to a boil for 60 secs.
  • Serve chicken and sauce over brown rice mixed with steamed broccoli or your veggie of choice.
  • Garnish with lowfat sour cream and a twist of lime.


  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup Grey Poupon
  • 1 cup salsa. For kids use the mild salsa.  
  • Half squeeze of lime. Save the other half for garnishing.
  • Combine ingredients and cover over chicken breasts, stirring occasionally.
  • Marinate at least 30 minutes.
  • The cliffnotes version of this recipe is 2 parts salsa to 1 part Grey Poupon (or less) and add a squeeze of lime.  If you want to moderate the recipe to your family’s needs.

I LOVE this recipe because it is healthy, and contains ingredients that are simple to keep readily on hand.
