The smells like heaven in the oven right now!
I had to improvise some because
A) I only had thin sliced chicken breast
B) I had no fresh tomatoes
So instead of slicing them in half and stuffing them I pounded the thin sliced breast even a little thinner, used some jarred sun dried tomatoes and rolled them instead of stuffing them. Also topped with an additional slice of mozzarella before baking. It was super easy and the girls loved it! Served over cauliflower rice, topped with a little sun-dried tomato bruschetta with Caesar Salad (no croutons for me).
I think the prep took less than 10 minutes and cooking less than 30. Highly recommend!
4 Skinless boneless chicken breasts about 1 1/2 lb.
1 Tsp Italian seasoning mix
1 Tsp Garlic Powder
1 Tsp Smoked Paprika
Sea salt and pepper
12 Asparagus stalks end trimmed (I used frozen)
1 oz Tomatoes chopped up
4 slices Mozzarella Cheese (I also like to use Swiss)
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
Preheat your oven to 400 F.
Place the chicken on a clean chopping board and sprinkle with Italian seasoning, garlic powder, paprika, salt, pepper.
Start cutting each one lengthwise to create the pockets. Be careful not to cut all the way through.
Add 3 sprigs of asparagus and a couple of pieces of tomatoes to a mozzarella slice, then roll it to hold them inside. Stuff the chicken breasts with it.
Close the pocket with a toothpick. Heat oil in skillet.
Add in the chicken and sear it until nicely golden brown, about 3-5 minutes per side. Bake the chicken for 15-20 minutes.
IMPORTANT NOTE: if you are new to Keto please remind
If you are in ketosis and eat outside of this food group not only could it take you out of ketosis, but it could spike your blood sugar! Which can make you sick.
I intermittent fast 5 times a week (after month 1) – nothing to eat that’s over 50 calories from 6:30PM – 12:30PM, NEXT DAY. I have my coffee with HWC and drink my water. You will find you are not hungry once you are in ketosis.
Signs of being in ketosis: THIS IS WHERE YOU WANT TO BE! Bad headache after 1st week – known as keto flu (see electrolyte suggestions above to get rid of it). Metal taste or bad taste in mouth.
