How do you make chicken even better? Stuff it with delicious guilt-free items, THAT's how! Here are two brand-new recipes for your chewing pleasure...

 
 
Creamy Mushroom Stuffed Chicken

1/2 of recipe (1 stuffed chicken breast): 210 calories, 3.5g fat, 450mg sodium, 4.5g carbs, 0.5g fiber, 3g sugars, 36g protein -- PointsPlus® value 5*

This delicious dish is full of comfort-food goodness... Just like something Mom would make, and completely guilt-free!

Ingredients:
1 cup chopped mushrooms
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
2 wedges The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese
Two 5-oz. raw boneless skinless chicken breast cutlets, pounded to 1/2-inch thickness
1/8 tsp. each salt and black pepper

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8" X 8" baking pan with nonstick spray.

Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Cook and stir mushrooms and onion until softened and lightly browned, about 6 minutes.

Transfer cooked veggies to a medium bowl, and blot away excess moisture. Add onion powder, garlic powder, and cheese wedges, breaking the wedges into pieces as you add them. Stir until cheese has melted and coated the veggies.

Season chicken cutlets with salt and pepper. Evenly divide veggie mixture between the centers of the cutlets.

Roll up each cutlet over the mixture. If needed, secure with toothpicks. Place in the baking pan.

Cover pan with foil, and bake for 20 minutes.

Remove foil and bake until chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes. Eat up!
