Here is a picture of my plate:
Here is the recipe from Hungry Girl for the chicken:
Rhapsody in Bleu
Warm chicken wrapped around melted cheese and juicy ham that won't break the calorie bank!?
- One 5-oz. raw boneless skinless lean chicken breast cutlet
- 1 wedge The Laughing Cow Light Original Swiss cheese, room temperature (I used the garlic and herb flavored.)
- 1 oz. (about 3 slices) 97 - 98% fat-free ham slices (I only had 3 slices in the house so I used one thin slice per chicken breast and that was enough!)
- salt and black pepper, to taste (I added garlic and onion powder too!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Put chicken in a large sealable plastic bag, squeeze out as much air as you can, and seal. Using a meat tenderizer or a can, carefully pound chicken through the bag until it is about 1/4-inch thick.
Remove chicken from the bag, and season to taste with salt and pepper on both sides.
Lay the chicken flat and spread the cheese wedge over it.
Evenly layer the ham slices on top of the cheese.
Starting with one of the longer sides (or any side, if it's square), tightly roll up the chicken breast cutlet, and secure with toothpicks.
Place chicken roll in a baking dish lined with foil and/or sprayed with nonstick spray, and then cover the baking dish with foil. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Carefully remove the foil covering the dish. Continue to bake (uncovered) for an additional 15 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Enjoy!

I served our new yummy chicken creation with some roasted cauliflower and broccoli (put light spray of olive oil pam and sprinkle w/ salt, pepper, garlic powder and put in hot oven until "toasted") and some fresh blanched asparagus that I picked in my flower bed right before dinner!
Oh and before I forget, when I posted the recipe for Mexican Lasagna, I got several questions about hominy. I hadn't thought to answer those questions until now when I watched Dr. Oz on Oprah today and there was Oprah grinding up some hominy (they just called it lye soaked corn) to make these tortillas and tamales. Good southerners love grits (ground up hominy) so when I mentioned it in my recipe, I didn't even think about it being more of a regional food. I say, if you have never tried it then get some and try it! I prefer Bush's hominy as they don't have any added fat in the can as some of the store brands appear to have.
So tell me, whatcha eating?
