Sundried Tomato and Basil Chicken Roll

I just went through a group of pictures I took and noticed that I have not been taking very pretty pictures of my food lately and I will have to start focusing on that here now that I am adjusted to being back home. Until the new photographer is discovered in myself I will have to post some beauties like the one above.

I am sure you can tell by the photo on this meal I got distracted and over steamed the broccoli which is why it has this olive green color and not the bright spring green color of perfect tender crisp broccoli, but that is how life is now isn't it.

This is one of the meals I had the first week on my weight watching diet. it is sun dried basil stuffed chicken breast with half a baked potato and broccoli. I will have to go back and look at how many zucchinis this added up to but it was not too many and it was a filling meal.

thin chicken breast at about 4 oz piece per person.
1 to 2 sun dried tomatoes per person, chopped
3 or 4 large basil leaves per person, cut into ribbons
a little cheese, about an ounce per person
salt and pepper

roll all inside the chicken sear all sides in hot pan and roast in 400F oven for 15 minutes or until done.

meal is 7 points with the overcooked broccoil

Love the overcooked broccoli! We need more real life in food blogging photos. I really want to get back in the game but don't have time to make things look nice or type up anything coherent. I'm going to start posting just whatever I can manage too!

I really love your Michigan photos in the previous post by the way.

very funny, i was so bummed that the broccoli got over cooked that day, but that is life. I almost didn't post this one but I have been skipping so many post the last few months that I have needed a recipe and didn't have it so I am trying not to skip new ones so much.

I think you are the only one left that reads my blog so I figured it was not a big food blog fopa
