Spinach , Basil, and Feta–Stuffed Chicken Rolls with Pignoli
From Dr. Jonny: Pignoli are another name for pine nuts, those small, white, oval-shaped nuts that are actually the edible seeds of pines and are in demand because of the popularity of pesto. Here they add just a touch of flavor, texture, and visual interest to these delicious fetastuffed chicken rolls, which boast a ton of nutrition from the spinach (iron, calcium, magnesium) and the kalamata olives (healthy plant chemicals called polyphenols). The lean chicken and feta cheese make this a high-protein dish. Fun fact: Kalamata olives are named after the city of Kalamata in Greece and are known for being jumbo size with a meaty taste. They enjoy PDO status (Protected Designation of Origin), which is a legal framework in the European Union designed to protect the names of regional foods.
- Olive oil cooking spray
- 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
- 8 ounces (225 g) feta cheese, crumbled
- 4 cups (120 g) chopped baby spinach
- 1⁄4 cup (10 g) chopped fresh basil
- 1⁄4 cup (25 g) finely chopped pitted kalamata olives
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon each salt and freshly ground pepper
- 1 can (14.5 ounces, or 406 g) diced tomatoes with garlic and basil, undrained
- 1⁄4 cup (34 g) toasted pine nuts
Lightly spray the insert of a slow cooker with olive oil and set aside.
Place each chicken breast between two sheets of waxed paper and use a meat mallet to pound them to about 1⁄4-inch (6 mm) thickness; lay them out flat. In a medium-size bowl, combine the feta, spinach, basil, olives, garlic, and olive oil and mix well.
Lightly and evenly sprinkle each chicken breast with salt and pepper. Dividing the spinach and feta mixture by 6, spoon an equal measure onto the wider end of each breast and roll it up. Lay the rolls close together, seam sides down, in the slow cooker insert and pour the diced tomatoes evenly over all. Cover and cook on high for about 4 hours, or on low for 5 to 6 hours, until the chicken is cooked through. Garnish with the pine nuts to serve.

BUY this volume. BUY his other volumes, especially "Living Low Carb" to get started. Go to his website jonnybowden.com to read and learn. This fellow is a phenomenon, and his work deserves far more attention. THANK YOU, THANK YOU Dr. Bowden !!
For those of you who do not understand the importance of eating organic, grass-fed beef, read about it here. Ditto for tons of information on what healthy food really is. (One comment: the authors advise to eat only 100% grass fed beef and there are exceptions. My local farm feeds their free-range grass fed cattle the by-product of hops used to make beer from another local establishment in winter when grass is in short supply. So, while the beef may not be 100% grass fed, the meat is nutritious and the cattle are 100% free-range.)
I am most impressed with the wonderful variety of stocks--beef, vegetable, fish, chicken and more. I cook with stock all the time and proudly make mine from scratch. Make your own stock and become a better cook overnight! You cannot beat homemade stock to elevate any recipe that calls for stock. Hands on time is minimal; you just have to be around to check on it occasionally.
Love the variety of recipes and the fact that they cook "from around the globe." Everything I have made so far impresses: the Moroccan braised lamb shanks in fresh tomatoes and red wine, loaded split pea sweat potato soup and the lemon apricot chicken.
As a former caterer and now everyday cook, I always enjoy healthy, flavorful recipes. These hit the mark.
