Reduced-Fat Chicken Tetrazzini
From Cook's Country
Most people think of Chicken Tetrazzini as a leftover dish, but using already cooked chicken leaves you with dry, tough meat. We began by marinating raw chicken in soy sauce to infuse it with flavor. As for the fat and calorie-loaded creamy sauce, we shaved off nearly 200 calories by replacing heavy cream with a mixture of chicken broth, dry sherry, and pasta water for fluidity and a small amount of nutty Parmesan and cream cheese for flavor and body respectively. Traditional chicken tetrazzini has 440 calories, 25 grams of fat, and 16 grams of saturated fat. Our Reduced-Fat Chicken Tetrazzini has 280 calories, 7 grams of fat, and 4.5 grams of saturated fat per 1-cup serving.
You can substitute 2 cups of cooked chopped turkey for the chicken, omitting the marinade and the simmer in step 4.
