Weight Watchers Chicken and Mushroom Tetrazzini


  • 6 ounces whole wheat spaghetti
  • ½ pound ground skinless chicken breast
  • 8 ounces mixed mushrooms, such as cremini, oyster, and white, sliced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1½ tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1¼ cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • ¼ cup dry white wine or dry vermouth
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ? teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 6 tablespoons fat-free sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Cook the spaghetti according to the package directions omitting the salt, if desired. Drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 375°F. Spray a 1-quart baking dish with nonstick spray.
  3. Spray a large nonstick skillet with nonstick spray and set over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until browned, about 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the chicken to a medium bowl. Wipe out the skillet.
  4. Spray the skillet with nonstick spray. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring, until they give off their liquid and it has reduced by half, about 4 minutes. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Return the chicken to the skillet; sprinkle with the flour. Cook, stirring constantly, just until the flour is no longer visible, about 30 seconds.
  5. Stir in the broth, wine, thyme, salt, pepper, and nutmeg; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the sauce has thickened slightly, about 1 minute. Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the sour cream and parsley. Add the pasta and cheese and toss until mixed well.
  6. Transfer the chicken-pasta mixture to the baking dish. Bake until the top is lightly browned and the filling is heated through, about 20 minutes. Let stand for about 5 minutes before serving.
