Garlic Chicken 'N' Gravy & Fabulous Feta Salad

Garlic Chicken n Gravy:
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 t salt
1/4 t pepper
5 cloves garlic, chopped
2 T I Can't Believe It's Not Butter
1/2 C chicken broth and another 1/2 C of broth or white wine
1/2 t dried basil
1/4 t dried oregano
1 T flour

Season chicken with s & p. In a large skillet, cook the chicken and garlic in the butter over medium high heat for 5 minutes (browned). Add broth and wine, basil, and oregano. Bring to a biol, reduce heat and cover. Simmer for 7-9 mins until the chicken is not pink. Remove chicken and keep warm. In a small bowl mix the flour and remaining broth until smooth. Stir into the pan juices and bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 1-2 mins until it thickens. Serve over chicken when ready.
This wound up being really tasty and I will make it again, but I had trouble thickening the sauce. Regardless it was good!



Fabulous Feta Salad: 
2.5 C uncooked bow tie pasta
4 C torn spinach leaves
1/2 C feta cheese
1/2 C fat free Italian salad dressing
Cook the pasta and drain in cool water. In a large bowl combine all of the ingredients. Drizzle with the dressing and toss to coat.
This was such an easy side to make! It was yummy and I will make it again if I am pressed for time or need  a quick dish to bring to a friends house for a party.*You can use 1 C of cooked chicken, but I did not. I also used spinach leaves instead of romaine. Makes 8 servings.
