Healthy Poultry Recipe

Skinless, white-meat turkey and chicken are good choices, advises the Pritikin Eating Plan, because they're high in protein yet fairly low in saturated fat and cholesterol. The chefs in the Pritikin Cooking School have created many delectable poultry recipes, like this one.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, toss tomatoes with balsamic, oregano, and Splenda.
  3. In a nonstick baking pan, bake tomatoes, cut side up, until they are reduced to half their size, about 2 hours.
  4. Remove. Let cool. (This first step can be done up to 3 days ahead of time.)
  5. In a large hot nonstick skillet, saute mushrooms till brown, about 3 minutes.
  6. Add garlic, shallots, and rosemary. Cook for 2 more minutes.
  7. Remove from heat and add spinach. Mix well. Let mushroom mixture cool completely.
  8. When cool, dice tomatoes. In a large bowl, mix tomatoes with mushrooms/spinach mixture, egg whites, breadcrumbs, basil, and parsley.
  9. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On a large cutting board, pound the chicken breasts to thin them out.
  10. Spread tomato/mushroom/spinach mixture on top of each breast and roll.
  11. Season rolls with paprika. Place rolls in a nonstick baking sheet and bake in 350-degree oven till chicken is cooked, about 15 to 20 minutes.
