Ingredients
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 c fresh spinach
  • 2 c fresh green beans, steamed
  • 4-4 oz boneless chicken breast, halved
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • cooking spray
  • 1 c grape tomatoes, sliced
Directions
  1. Place each chicken breast half between two sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; flatten to 1/4 inch thickness; using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Spoon 1 tbsp cheese onto each piece of chicken; fold in half. Secure in place with a toothpick.
