PREVENTING CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING
• Service all heating systems and all gas-, oil- or coal-burning appliances by a technician annually.
• Install a battery-operated and electric-powered carbon monoxide detector in your home and check or replace the battery when you change the time on your clocks each spring and fall. If the detector sounds, leave your home immediately and call 911.
• Contact a doctor if you believe you have carbon monoxide poisoning.
• Do not use gas-powered devices such as a generator, grill or stove inside your home, basement or near a near a window or door. Generators should be operated more than 15 feet from the home.
• Do not run any gas-powered motor inside a closed structure, such as a garage.
3 large cloves garlic, pressed 2 tablespoons low fat mayonnaise
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place chicken breast halves in a 9x13 baking dish; bake, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; saute mushrooms, onion and garlic until mushrooms begin to turn brown, about 8-10 minutes. Remove from heat. Add mustard, capers, vinegar, hot sauce and mayonnaise to skillet. Mix together and spread the mixture over the chicken. Continue to bake until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 20-25 minutes longer.
