Healthy chicken parmigiana

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

Ingredients:

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.

Enjoy!
