This week Food idea from Smarty Marty is Veggie Stuffed Chicken Breast
Healthy Choice and creative idea to include in a boneless chicken breast dish.
Veggie Stuffed Chicken Breast
4 boneless skinless chicken breast
8 oz. Feta cheese sliced
6 oz. mozzarella cheese
1 medium white onion
3 or 4 large garlic gloves
1/2 red bell pepper
2 cups of fresh chopped spinach
1 cup of chopped mushrooms
1/2 teaspoon of flaked pepper
2 tablespoons of olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Slice the chicken breast in half not going all the way through and spread open, lightly tap down flat with mallet.
Salt and pepper breast on both sides to taste
Heat olive oil in a frying pan and add onion, pepper, 3 garlic cloves, mushrooms and sauté until mushrooms and onions soften.
Now add spinach until spinach softens
Remove combination from frying pan and place in a bowl to add the feta cheese, the last garlic clove, salt and pepper to taste; add flaked red pepper mix completely.
Place equal amounts of mixture on the breast and roll the breast. Secure with toothpick or string.
Lightly spray a large rimmed sheet pan with olive oil (any pan will do) lined with foil or parchment paper and place in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until stuffing reaches internal temperature of 160 degrees F. Top chicken breast with mozzarella cheese and bake a additional 3 to 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Today’s Foodie Tuesday is Smarty Marty’s take on a classic Shrimp Boil!
Getting all your ingredients together
- 2 lemons, halved, plus wedges for serving
- 1/2 cup Old Bay Seasoning
- 8 cloves garlic, smashed
- 1 large red onion, quartered
- 6 sprigs fresh thyme
- 1 pound baby red potatoes
- 4 ears corn, husked and snapped in half
- 1 1/4 pounds large shrimp, unpeeled
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- Hot sauce, for serving (optional)
Fill a large pot with 4 quarts of water. Squeeze the lemon juice into the water and add the squeezed lemon halves. Add the Old Bay, garlic, and onion. Tie the thyme sprigs together with kitchen twine and add to the pot. Cover and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook about 5 minutes.
Add the potatoes to the pot and cook until just tender, about 10 minutes. Add the corn and cook 5 more minutes.
Meanwhile, slice along the back of each shrimp through the shells; remove the veins and rinse the shrimp. Add to the pot, cover and cook until the shrimp curl and are just opaque, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer the shrimp and vegetables with a slotted spoon or skimmer to a large bowl. Add the butter and about 1 cup broth to the bowl and toss until the butter is melted. Transfer the shrimp and vegetables to a platter. Serve with the remaining broth, lemon wedges and hot sauce, if desired.
