Number of Servings: 3

Ingredients

    3 Chicken Breast, no skin,
    1 cup Cottage Cheese, 1% Milkfat,
    1.5 cups Spinach, fresh
    1 medium Onion
    12 jumbo Black Olives
    1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    1Tbsp basil and oregano balsamic vinegar
    1/2 cup Water
    3 cloves chopped Garlic,
    Knorr Pesto Mix package

Directions

Pound Chicken Breast with Mallet
Pesto Marinade:
Knorr Pesto Mix, 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar, 1/2 cup water, 1 tbsp crushed garlic. Mix together. Add chicken to a Gallon size baggie and add your marinade. Either overnight or for at least an hour.

Heat oven to 375F. Spray pan

Chop onions, black olives, and spinach.
In a pan, saute' onions, 1 clove of garlic, and black olives. I use water when I saute' to cut down on fat. Saute' until onions are translucent and soft.
Salt and pepper to taste so it is not bland.

Mix cottage cheese and chopped spinach in a small bowl. Add onion, garlic, and black olive mixture to bowl. Mix together. Taste the mixture to make sure it is seasoned enough. You may need to add a little more salt and pepper so it is not bland. If you have any remaining pesto - you could add it to this mixture.

Stuff each Marinaded chicken breast with Spinach mixture and fasten with a toothpick.

Bake in 400 oven for 40 minutes. Depending on your oven. Of course, make sure the juices run clear.

I serve with a veggie and a light lemon pepper angel hair pasta.

Serving Size: 1 whole chicken breasts
