Skinny Chicken Stroganoff

This Skinny Chicken Stroganoff came to my mind when I wanted two of my favorite things to come together. Chicken and anything creamy. I usually steer clear of creamy dishes because of the high fat content that usually comes from it because of the cream. You can check out my Healthier Parmesan Noodles or Skinny Fettuccine Alfredo and Peas for other ways to make cream lighter. My secret are usually Fat Free Greek Yogurt or Greek Yogurt Cream Cheese. This time I put the cream cheese to use and it was amazing! It gave it the perfect creaminess and the greek yogurt is lower in fat than low fat cream cheese!! I added celery and carrots to this to add more veggies to it. Another great tip is add some red pepper flakes to kick it up a notch. This is one of those recipes that tastes even better the next day.
