Creamy Mushroom Chicken

Anytime I see anything described as creamy and it's low calorie, I know I have to try it.  This is veggies & chicken with a creamy coating.  It is so delicious and pretty quick for a weeknight dinner.

Also, a note, I went to pull my camera out to photograph the finished product only to find that my camera was dead so, unfortunately, I dont have a photo to share.  Sorry about that!

Recipe is from BHG.
Yields 4 servings.
