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
