Ingredients

  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary, chopped
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 3 wedges low-fat Laughing Cow cheese
  • 3 oz fire roasted red peppers, drained
  • 1-2 cups arugula
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp fresh ground papper

Directions

  1. Combine oil, rosemary and lemon zest in a shallow dish. Place chicken breasts in the dish, turning to coat each one. Marinate in the fridge for 2 hours.
  2. Preheat grill. Season both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper, and grill until just cooked through, approximately 5-7 minutes each side. If baking (not grilling), preheat oven to 350. Put 1/8 inch water in bottom of pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes, depending on thickness of chicken breasts.
  3. Slice each chicken breast in half; don’t cut all the way through. Spread the cheese inside each breast and stuff with roasted peppers and arugula. Serve with brown rice or quinoa or a colorful salad.
