1 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs

¼ tsp salt

¼ tsp pepper

2 Tbsp butter, divided

1 (8-oz) pkg sliced mushrooms

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 Tbsp white wine (or use low-sodium chicken broth)

½ (8-oz) carton reduced-fat sour cream

¼ tsp salt, divided

1 (12-oz) pkg thin green beans


Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Melt 1 Tbsp butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add chicken, and cook 3 to 4 minutes per side or until done. Remove from skillet; cover and keep warm.

Melt 1 Tbsp butter in skillet. Add mushrooms and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes. Stir in wine, scraping skillet to loosen browned bits.

Add broth and thyme; bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes or until reduced by half. Serve sauce over chicken.

Cook potatoes according to package directions; reserve half of potatoes for a future meal. Stir sour cream and ⅛ tsp each salt and pepper into remaining potatoes.

Microwave green beans according to package directions; transfer to a bowl, and stir in ⅛ tsp each salt and pepper.
