Artichoke Stuffed Chicken (LOW CARB)

Ingredients:

8 ounces cream cheese (0 carbs)
1 cup mayonnaise (0 carbs)
1 cup sour cream (0 carbs)
1 cup parmesan cheese (0 carbs)
1 8.5 ounce can artichoke hearts sliced into small pieces (6 carbs)
Several pieces of celery, chopped

Directions:

Mix the above together in a medium bowl. This will be our filling.

You'll also need 4 to 6 average sized chicken breasts depending on how many people you are serving. Pound chicken breasts flat – about ¼ inch thick.
Spread the artichoke filling on top of the flattened chicken. Roll up and secure in place with a toothpick or skewer and put into baking dish. After all rolls are in place, sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Bake for 375 degrees F for 45 minutes until chicken juices run clear.

You will have likely left over filling; you can add this on top of the chicken or serve on the side at dinner time.

 

Feta Grill Patties (LOW CARB)

Ingredients:

1 pound ground chicken or turkey
6 ounces crumbled feta
2 tablespoons ground oregano

Grill or broil for about 5 to 7 minutes each side.  The feta cheese gives these a particularly wonderful and unique flavor.

If you're using an indoor grill you might need to spray it with a bit of nonstick spray because they to tend to stick a little.
