Spinach Stuffed Lemon Herb Chicken

Serving Size: 2

2   4-5oz. boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1/4 cup lemon juice

2 packets of Splenda® (personally, I hate Splenda and all that it stands for and I prefer a little bit of brown sugar as needed for taste, but you do what you want… you’re not feeding me)

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp dried parsley flakes

1 tsp snapped chives or 1/2 tsp dried chives

fresh spinach leaves (as many as you’d like to stuff in the chicken breast, I like a lot of spinach)

Place all ingredients except chicken and spinach in a plastic bag.  Cut a pocket in the thick side of the chicken, place in bag with the marinade.  Seal bag and squeeze to coat chicken.  Marinate for 30 minutes.  Preheat GT Xpress and spray with no-stick cooking spray.  Remove chicken from marinade, stuff pocket with spinach leaves and place in wells.   Close cover and bake 15 minutes or until chicken is done.
