A Twist on Chicken

Want to create a meal that is delicious, healthy and will impress your family? Try stuffed chicken! It's super simple to prepare and with the addition of a couple yummy sides, is a complete meal. It's easy enough to throw together during the week so there's no excuse not to have a fantastic dinner ready in no time! This recipe is really more of a suggestion because let me tell you, there are endless ways to try this dish. Start out with boneless, skinless chicken breasts and slice them about half way, leaving a little pocket to stuff with your favorite ingredients. Next, fill the chicken with your favorite cheese and veggie or other item. I chose ricotta with red peppers. You can have so much fun with this and make everyone their favorite combos, even enlisting the kids to help come up with new flavors: ham and swiss, eggplant with parmesan or mozzarella and pepperoni! Just get filling! You can close the open side with a toothpick but I found that was unnecessary. Once your chicken is ready, saute in a hot pan for about five minutes on each side, being careful not to move the chicken around too much. I served mine with some steam-in-bag green beans and homemade mashed potatoes. This is a great meal because you can throw it together in a snap and make it as simple or as gourmet as you want. You can have a lovely, nutritious meal on the table in just a half hour!
What flavors will you try??
