Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Oooooh, yummy!! Welcome to Tasty Tuesday!! If you're not sure what Tasty Tuesday is then please hop over to FTLOB for details and lots more tasty recipes. Some of them are healthy, some are most definitely not.... but they're ALL delicious! If you just try the recipes from one Tasty Tuesday you won't have to reach for a recipe book in a looooooong time. Just make sure you come back here once you've had a look over there!

Now, are you back? Did you like those recipes?? Mmmmm..... yum.

We've been trying recipes from several different recipe books, class leaflets, online resources and also ones that we just made up. However, there is one particular book which constantly seems to provide tasty recipes that are quick and easy to prepare. This one! (Click on the picture to check it out on Amazon). I got this book in Tesco. It was an impulse buy and totally random. I don't know if I even looked at the recipes before I put it in the trolley. I just know that it had those two magic words.... "WeightWatchers" and "Easy"! What a gem of a purchase it was too! So here's another recipe that we tried from this particular book recently:

50g Smoked Ham, diced
2 teaspoons snipped chives
100g low fat soft cheese
4 x 165g skineless, boneless chicken breasts
low fat cooking spray
salt and freshly ground black pepper

  1. Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 6/200C/fan oven 180C
  2. Mix the ham, chives and seasoning into the low fat soft cheese
  3. Using a small sharp knife, make a pocket along the length of each chicken breast, taking care not to cut right through. Fill with the stuffing then place the chicken breasts in a small roasting time and spray with a little cooking spray.
  4. Roast for 15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through; the juices should run clear when the thickest part of the chicken is pierced.

Don't forget to count the ProPoints for your potatoes/rice and any other sides you might have! 


We first tried this recipe a few weeks ago and it's been done at least 3 times since then. I was absolutely amazed to see two little girls who absolutely wolfed it down and then asked for seconds!! Now, those of you who've been reading my Tasty Tuesday submissions for a bit will know how fussy my kids are. Not many of these recipes have gone down well with them and yet, here is one that they can't get enough of. Yay!! Happy Mum! This is quickly becoming a family favourite and will stay in the repertoire long after Himself and I have lost the weight and become super-skinny.

I hope you liked today's recipe! I'm really enjoying doing the Tasty Tuesday submissions and we're enjoying trying out new recipes as a family. It's a real bonus when the kids enjoy them as much as we do!! I have yet to pluck up the courage to try them on the Spinach Lasagne yet. I might serve this one a few more times before I try feeding that one to the world's fussiest children!!

Thanks for dropping by and leaving me a comment!

PS. I've suddenly realised that I didn't do a Weight loss update for April! I have the photo's ready and waiting so I'll put that post up tomorrow.


  1. I've been on and off again with weight watchers, I've borrowed some of their books from the library, but I've never used this one, looks yummy.

  2. *Droool* I don't eat late at night but I could easily eat what's on that plate NOW! *Ü* TFS. ~Glen~

  3. Looks great, I find recipe books can be so hit and miss so it's great when you find a good one! Becky x

  4. Mmm. Looks DELICIOUS! Absolutely lovin' those potatoes. And, you take some great pictures!
