Craving a dish that fits healthy resolutions but also tastes divine? Try today’s Health-e-Recipe for Mediterranean Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Spinach. It’s an easy way to sneak cancer-fighting veggies into an entrée that’s sinfully delicious.
Tender, lean chicken breasts are stuffed with spinach, a leafy green that contains vitamins C and K, antioxidant beta-carotene and the B vitamin folate, in addition to the phytochemical lutein that may help prevent cancer and preserve your sight.
Mixed with piquant sun-dried tomatoes, which contain the cancer-fighting compound lycopene, the spinach filling also gets a creamy texture from the low-fat goat cheese and cream cheese mixture.
Topped off with Italian herbs, another source of phytochemicals, this excellent dish can be served on a bed of steamed spinach to ramp up the benefits and accompanied with a half-cup of fiber-rich brown rice for each serving.
