Tuscan Chicken Breast (lower carb)
Tuscan Chicken Breast
Easy, delicious and light this recipe will not disappoint you with the spring and summer months to come!
You will need:
1 pkg of Chicken breast (organic if possible) about 1.5 lbs
1 jar of Roasted Red peppers
1 container of fresh basil leaf ( I found at Walmart by the salads)
1 pkg of sliced provolone cheese
1 jar of pesto of choice
You will need to clean and flatten out your chicken breast a little. I usually rinse off with water then place on counter with sarane wrap over the top of one breast at a time and use my kitchen “hammer” and pound it out just a bit to make it wider and flatter.
Coat your baking sheet with cooking spray (or you could grill these). Lay your chicken breast out and top each one with
1 tsp of pesto
A few slices of your pepper
1 basil leaf
½ slice of the provolone cheese
Now, you could roll these up and hold them with a toothpick for of a more “stuffed” chicken breast or just bake them flat if easier.
I baked on 350 for 20 minutes or less until golden brown.
Serve over a bag of cauliflower rice for a complete meal of health and perfection!
