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.20861821_1894623697215237_2280183038530307763_o20818909_1894617567215850_4499555024924395799_o

2 cups chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
2 celery ribs, chopped
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 1⁄2 tablespoons plain fat-free yogurt (regular or Greek)
salt and pepper
1 tablespoon chives, chopped

Combine chicken, celery and chives in a medium bowl. I use bone-in, skin-on chicken breast that I season with salt, pepper and garlic and roast at 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Discard the skin and bones and cut into cubes.
Add mayo and yogurt and stir to combine.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve on a whole wheat bun or scoop onto a bed of lettuce.
