Can someone say AMAZING and then say DELISH!!!! Fabulous and easy meal that will impress dinner guest.

Grocery List:

-Skinless Boneless Chicken Breast
-Laughing Cow Low fat Swiss Spreadable Cheese Wheel (1 per ckn breast)
-John Morrell Off the Bone Home style Carved Honey Ham
-Plastic Wrap
-Wax Paper


-Preheat oven to 350 degrees

-Place a piece of plastic wrap on counter, place chicken on plastic wrap & place another piece of plastic wrap on top of chicken. Using a meat hammer, flatten chicken breast to about 1/4 inch thick by pounding slowly.

-Remove top layer of plastic, season top of flattened chicken breast with salt & pepper, now spread one laughing cow spreadable cheese wedge on top of flattened chicken breast.

-Put one to two slices of Ham on top of flattened chicken breast, roll chicken breast, insert toothpick to hold together.

-Place a piece of wax paper on baking sheet, place chicken on baking sheet. Repeat until done.

-Cover Chicken with foil

-Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, remove foil, bake an additional 15 minutes to allow chicken to brown.

Now ENJOY!!! Again, this low fat dish is only 235 calories/9 grams of fat. This is a Hungry-Girl recipe that I found on a 2 minute demonstration on YouTube. The demonstration looked so easy and guess what, it really was. It was a nice twist and alternative to the same ol same ol chicken for dinner. Now get ready for this, the kiddos loved it!

I served the chicken with steamed carrots topped with parsley & smart squeeze non fat margarine spread along with steamed green beans. Our dinner was only 335 calories with 9.35 grams of fat... even the kiddos were amazed by those numbers.
