Braised Sage and Rosemary Chicken

Seasoned with the delicious rosemary and sage, this braised chicken is a perfect low calorie dinner idea to help keep you on track with your Weight Watchers goals. Juicy and flavorful, the chicken goes wonderfully over polenta, roasted vegetables or pasta.


  • 24 oz skinless, boneless chicken breasts (I used 6 4oz breasts)
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 2 cups fat free chicken broth
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp fresh rosemary, minced
  • 2 tsp fresh sage, minced
  • 4 whole cloves  of garlic
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
  2. Spray a large, deep, nonstick skillet with nonfat cooking spray and set over medium high heat.
  3. Cook chicken until browned on both sides, about 4 minutes per side. Remove chicken from pan and set aside.
  4. Deglaze the pan with about 1 tbsp of the wine, and then add in the onion and garlic and sauté until tender and fragrant, about 2-3 minutes.
  5. Add in salt & pepper, sage, rosemary and cloves, and sauté for another 2-3 minutes.
  6. Add in tomato paste and wine, and bring to a boil while stirring up the browned bits.
  7. Return the chicken to the pan, and add in the broth. Bring to a simmer and then reduce heat to medium low and cook until chicken is cooked through, about 20-25 minutes. Make sure to keep spooning the liquid over the chicken while cooking. Let cool about 5 minutes before serving.
