Chicken with Cremini Cream Sauce

This is a South Beach Diet recipe and I really like it because it tastes like it would be a lot more fattening than it is.  It is creamy and rich, without really being rich.  Even bigger bonus, it is super easy.

Chicken with Cremini Cream Sauce 
From: South Beach Diet
Prep time: 5-10 min
Cook time: 10-15 min

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
3 tsp olive oil
8 oz small cremini mushrooms, quartered or sliced (I actually didn't use cremini)
3 scallions (I used a regular yellow onion)
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 Tbsp reduced fat cream cheese
1/4 tsp dried rosemary

1. Season the chicken with 1/2 tsp of salt and pepper.

2.  In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 tsp olive oil over medium heat.  Add the chicken and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side.  Transfer to plate and keep warm.

3.  Add the mushrooms, onion, and remaining tsp oil to the skillet.  Cook over medium heat, tossing frequently until the mushrooms have wilted, about 3 minutes.

4. Add broth, cream cheese, rosemary, and remaining 1/4 tsp salt.  Stir until the cream cheese melts, about 1 minute

5.  Return the chicken to the pan and bring to a simmer.  Cover and cook until the chicken is cooked through and still juicy, about 5 minutes.  Serve.
