Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Costco frozen chicken breasts, butterflied. Hopefully you can see what I mean by butterflied.. because I don't know if that's really the real cooking term, it's an Emily term.

Stuff them full of awesomeness.
Bacon, broccoli, onion, mozzarella cheese, garlic, salt/pepper, spinach...the combinations are endless. My favorite combo is cheese, broccoli and bacon. The points really depend on how big your chicken breast is. I would say mine is usually about 8 points for the chicken. The 1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese is 1 point and the bacon is about a point per slice. You can easily make these with no extra points. I like to lightly coat the chicken with olive oil or spray. The olive oil does cost you points, but you don't end up using much.
Fold it over on top of itself to cook. I usually use my Cuisinart grill or the BBQ. Cook until you have good grill marks and then flip it over. Cook time really depends on how thick your chicken is.

 I used to tell everyone I was a terrible cook. A few years back I made it my new years resolution to follow directions, especially in cooking/baking. It was crazy what a big difference that made, just to read the instructions before I started.  Goals are good and working on improving yourself is awesome. I am officially retracting that statement about being a terrible cook, I didn't say I was the world's best cook....but I am not a terrible cook anymore. So if you're in the terrible cook club too, don't give up all it takes is the desire to want to be better.
