• Broccoli & Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts

    I LOVE chicken prepared this way* and the best part is that it is perfectly legal for a low-carber such as I! If you can, ask your butcher from your local grocery to pound the chicken for you.

    I sprinkled my piece with cayenne pepper. It's delicious, and it helps make the meat more alkaline.

    Ingredients

    Chicken Breasts, pounded to about 1/4 inch (I cooked 5.)
    8 Ounces Cream Cheese
    1/4 Cup Grated Mozzarella
    Fresh Herbs, I used oregano and parsley, to taste.
    Minced Onion, to taste
    1 1/2 Cup Broccoli, chopped finely
    Garlic Salt, etc. to taste
    I Beaten Egg

    Preparation

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    1. Soak chicken in salt water for several hours if time permits. Dry on paper towels.

    2. Mix all other ingredients until combined very well.

    3. Scoop mixture onto chicken breasts and roll up. Pin with toothpick if necessary.

    4. Brush with beaten egg.

    5. Bake. The time needed will be according to the size of your chicken breasts.

    The chicken breasts I used this time were actually way too large, but they were what I could get.  Instead of pounding them, my butcher ran them through the tenderizer, which will work, but not as well as pounding.

    After folding the chicken over on itself, I used extra long toothpicks to hold it together, "pinning" them on all sides.

    If I happen to be in the mood for a sweet stuffing, I sometimes use my favorite jam or jelly mixed with cream cheese and no herbs.
