If you have them, you can also use the Medifast crackers (crushed of course) as a "breading" for the chicken. It uses your snack for the day, but it's good.....

Yum, I will make it without the turkey bacon though. That is a treat I have waiting for maintenance...

I was going to make something like this but using broccoli instead of turkey bacon. Then it morphed to using baby spinach instead of broccoli. In my preparations, everything became a mess. So now in the oven I have a sorta chicken spinach lasagna - I put a layer of thin-sliced chicken breast, topped with a layer of spinach and LC cheese goop, sprinkled with half the Parmesan, then repeated the layers..

Here's hoping it tastes as good as it smells!.

Great! I'm glad you liked it...I plan on making this for my extended family on an upcoming trip and wasn't sure how others (not on MF) would like it (I've never made it for my own family). Sometimes I think my husband just says Mmm-mmm when I try out a recipe on him b/c he's afraid of the "evil eye"..

My 7 year old daughter told me it was "Brilliant" haha.. They definitely enjoyed it...

I've been feeling guilty after some posts were made about turkey bacon, thinking I'd gone off plan and was a horrible person or something. LOL So anyway I decided to see what Nutrition Support had to say about it and thought I'd post an interesting link I found for others who might want to make the wonderful delicious recipe but aren't sure how to account for the ingredients.

When I made the recipe I just put one slice of turkey bacon per chicken breast, so I guess I'd be using 1 fat serving with the bacon..

1/2 fat serving for the Laughing Cow cheese (since I only used 1 slice of the LC light).

1 condiment for the Parmesan cheese.

Not exactly sure how to account for the egg beaters that you wet the chicken with.

So I guess the worst damage I might have done was going over on my healthy fat (1/2) for the day. I feel better now that I did some research. I was really feeling guilty thinking I'd just taken a nose dive "off-plan" for having a slice of turkey bacon..

Just wanted to post this here for others who are trying to decide how to count everything. If anyone knows more about how to count all the ingredients please feel free to let me know what I'm doing wrong, I'm still trying to figure it all out.

Btw: My daughter came home from the school the very next day hoping we were having your Cordon Bleu again! She wanted it two nights in a row! hahaha!..

Everyone loved this excellent meal..next time I would be happy with just one piece of turkey bacon...

Comment #16

I made it with a very thin slice of ham instead of the bacon. It was wonderful. Mine took longer to bake, but it may be my oven!.

Keep the recipes coming!.

Fantastic recipie! I made this tonight for my fiancee and my parents, it was absolutely delicious. I did tweak it a little. Felica suggested I chop up some green onion and sprinkle it over the cheese before rolling up the chicken breast. Very tasty, we all loved it...

Comment #18

I'll try this when I'm on transition or maintenance. I just read where Nutrisystem says the turkey bacon is too high in sodium and too low in calories to be OP, aside from the fact I don't believe it would count as a healthy fat, would it? Plus you use the eggbeaters, an additional lean? I do like the brocolli idea for now, though...

Comment #19

I just made this tonight and it was delicious. I was able to find an uncured turkey bacon that had the same nutritional break down as my laughing cow wedge. So I felt comfortable using one slice to make a total of 1 fat serving. I made some greens (collards,mustards, turnips) as a side and I was in heaven. Thanks ...
