I love the flavor of sundried tomatoes. They are tart and sweet at the same time. I prefer to cook with the ones that are in oil. The others are too dry and brittle. The flavor gets lost. Here is a delicious, low fat recipe that will fill your mouth with flavor!

Here’s How to Do it:

Make the stuffing first. Add some of the oil from the tomatoes to about 2 tablespoons of olive oil and heat the pan.

Lightly sauté the mushrooms until they are starting to brown. Remove from the pan.

Cut up the tomatoes.

Add the spinach and cook until it’s fully wilted.

When the spinach cools, cut it into smaller pieces and add to a bowl with the mushrooms, sundried tomatoes, bread crumbs

and salt and pepper to taste. I like to use fresh ground sea salt and peppercorn mix. Mix well.

Cut the breasts in half vertically.

Add some salt and fresh cracked pepper to both sides.

Using a meat tenderizer, gently pound the breast meat to flatten it out a little.

Place 1/4 of the stuffing mixture on the top of each breast half.

Carefully roll the meat around the stuffing and place in a deep baking dish.

Next, mix the mushroom soup and shredded shredded cheese in a bowl. If there is any stuffing left, stir that in too.

Mix well, then add the smoked paprika and cream. Again, add some salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste.

Spoon the mixture over the chicken and

bake at 350° for about 40 to 45 minutes, until the chicken is no longer pink anywhere.
