Number of Servings: 4


    1 whole chicken breast, skin and bone removed
    1 cup chicken stock (fat free/low sodium)
    4 slices of low fat or fat free swiss cheese slices
    2 tablesponns of margarine
    1 tablespoon flour
    2 tablespoons dried oregano
    1 tablespoon ground black pepper
    1 teaspoon salt


Pound the chicken breast thin (layer it between two pieces of plastic wrap then pound with the flat side of a meat tenderizer, can of food, etc). Cut into four portions. Mix the flour, salt and pepper. Dredge the chicken in the mixture. Heat the margarine in a skillet - once melted, brown the chicken pieces in the butter - 2-4 minutes per side. Once the chicken is golden on both sides, pour in the chicken broth, add the oregano. Simmer for 8 minutes. Crumble two slices of the swiss cheese into the 'sauce' and stir to combine. Continue to cook another 2-5 minutes until chicken is cooked through. Top each chicken piece with half a slice of swiss cheese. Serve over rice or pasta.
