Italian Chicken Marinara Skillet

This is similar to the "pizza chick" recipe I posted, but I thought it would be a good one to fight boredom on the diet.

This recipe is better suited for the OWL plan but can be tweaked for the Simeon's plan as well.

-3.5oz chicken breast boiled with italian seasoning and black pepper.  Once cooled off shred chicken with two forks
-1 tsp no sodium tomato paste
-1-2 tbsp no sodium tomato sauce
-1-2oz chopped, sauteed onions or shallots
-1 tsp Ms. Dash Tomato Basil seasoning
-1/4 cup fat free shredded mozzarella (optional)
-1 tsp fresh basil

Sautee onions until translucent, add tomato sauce, paste, and seasonings.  Simmer on Med-High heat until combined.  If sauce too thick add 1/8 cup water.   Add chicken.  stir and let cook together for a few minutes.  Last step is add the shredded cheese.  Transfer to plate and serve. Garnish with fresh chopped basil.

For Simeons compliant plan: Omit onions (remember-don't mix veggies) and cheese. Sub fresh tomato for the canned sauce/paste.  Sautee' tomatoes with seasoning and some water to create a thin sauce.  Can thicken if preferred with a tsp of cornstarch.  Follow remaining instructions. 

*can serve either with a portion of miracle (shirataki) noodles.
