Healthy chicken parmigiana

Here’s a simple and healthy version of chicken parmigiana that I am sure you will love!


Chicken breast, trimmed of sinew and excess meat
Spinach (fresh, frozen or baby)
Grated light tasty cheese
Tinned tomatoes, drained and rinsed
Italian dried herbs (or whatever you like – fresh parsley or oregano would be nice!)

Preheat oven to 200 degrees (190 fan forced).

Make a pocket in the chicken breast and hollow out with a sharp knife. Stuff the chicken with a few spoonfuls of spinach and cheese. Seal the pocket shut with a couple of toothpicks.

Tear off a square of aluminium foil. Place the chicken on the foil and top with a couple of spoonfuls of tomato. Sprinkle herbs on top. Fold the foil over and seal the edges by rolling them.

Place in oven for 25 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink.

You could even add olives, capers and artichokes! Just place them on top of the tomatoes before sealing the foil.

Serve with vegetables or salad or slice the chicken and serve on top of rice or pasta.



Strike me down!

What I thought was just innocent yet annoying hayfever has turned into a nasty cold. Woe is me. I hate being sick but then again, no one particularly enjoys it, do they?

Went to a lovely wedding on the weekend! It was held in the chapel my husband and I were married in so that brought back many happy memories. And also memories of sheer and utter terror! No no, I kid. 😉

The bad thing about weddings is that there is always so much to eat and drink! I paced myself though and alternated each drink with a glass of water. And that nights dinner was light cheese on multigrain toast. 😉

Sunday was spent watching telly and sniffling on the couch. I must admit though – I had a few chips and half a chicken roll but got right back on the healthy (yet boring) path of snacking on some grapes and nuts and had grilled pork and veggies for dinner.

Today consisted of more couch sitting. No nasty food though (oh wait… oops, I had a mint pattie! But I severely needed a choccie hit!). I did manage a venture to Coles though. God life is drab when a trip to Coles is the highlight of your day!

Hopefully am well enough for training in the morning! Wish me luck!
