Reuben Stuffed Chicken Breast - a Light Recipe

“As I am trying to uncover new recipes that are healthy, flavorful and dinner party worthy, I pieced a few things together to come up with this one. It turns out quite tasty and moist. Great for your family or for company. I made this with some swiss laughing cow wedges and thinly slices peppered dried sausage and the result was OUTSTANDING! I think I'll use the substitute from now on.”

  2. Rinse sauerkraut to your taste.
  3. Cover chicken breasts in plastic wrap and pund pretty thin.
  4. Lay chicken breast flat.
  5. For each breast:
  6. Spread Dijon mustard on one side (the side facing up) evenly.
  7. Add 2-3 pieces of ham, 1 - 2 pieces of cheese (Depending on the size of the breast - You want good ham and cheese coverage on the chicken.).
  8. Top with sauerkraut, evenly.
  9. Carefully roll each breast; secure with a toothpick if necessary and transfer to a baking dish.
  10. Lightly coat each breast with olive oil or olive oil spray.
  11. Salt & Pepper to taste.
  12. Bake for 45 minutes or until the chicken is cooked and juices run clear.
  13. To serve, let stand in baking dish for 5 minutes. Then, transfer to warm plates and top with some of the chicken juice from baking dish.
  14. Note: Even if sauerkraut is not your favorite, you may find if you rinse it very well (my personal preference), it takes on a really mild flavor in this dish and just gives it a little texture and saltiness.
