Stuffed Chicken #2. Another lo carb!

Safeway had this Chicken Breast already flattened out!

If you’ve been following me, you know that I am on a quest for good lo carb dishes.  The last one was stuffed chicken, and this is another version of that, but with different stuffing.  I’m learning that a little goes a long way with cream and cheeses.  They are higher in fat, but a a small amount of cream cheese added to about 1/2 cup chicken broth makes a delicious and not too heavy cream cheese sauce…..so, while it is lo carb, you might want to watch out for the high fat.  A little trick to get the flavor, not the calories!

Asparagus Stuffed Chicken

4 flattened chicken Breasts

Saute in olive oil: About 1/2 cup each:  mushrooms, onions,  asparagus, and another 2 big handfuls of chopped spinach (because it shrinks so much)

When its all softened, distribute the veggies evenly in the breasts, and add just a small glob of cream cheese (about 1 tbs.). I find this goes a long way, as it melts inside. Top with crushed parmesan crackers, (instead of bread crumbs).
