Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    2 Tbsp olive oil

    1/2 cup chopped onion

    1 cup diced tomatoes

    1 tsp minced garlic

    1 (6 oz) bag baby spinach

    1 cup part-skim, shredded mozzarella cheese

    1/4 cup shredded, reduced-fat parmesan cheese

    4 boneless, skinless, medium chicken breast halves (about 1 1/2 lbs)

    2 tsp Italian seasoning blend

    1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth

    (You can play around with the calories a bit by using fat free cheeses)

Directions

Heat oil over medium heat in a nonstick skillet. Add onion and cook, stirring until onions are tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and garlic. Add spinach, cover and cook for about 3 minutes until spinach is soft. Remove from heat. Let mixture cool slightly; stir in mozzarella and parmesan.

Heat oven to 375°F. Beginning in the center of the thicker end of the breast, insert a small knife horizontally, stopping about 1 inch from opposite end. Open incision to create a 1-inch-wide pocket and pack 1/4 of the filling mixture into each breast.

Season chicken with Italian seasoning blend and place in 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish. Pour broth over chicken. Cover loosely with foil and bake for 40 minutes. Keep warm until served.
