(Serves 4)

 

Ingredients:

4 chicken breasts, malleted to a 1 cm thickness
1⁄2 tsp salt
1⁄2 tsp black pepper
1⁄2 cup golden delicious apple, peeled, cored, and coarsely chopped
3 tbs crumbed reduced fat feta cheese
1 tbs oat bran
1 tbs tub margarine
1⁄2 cup dry white wine
1⁄2 cup plus 2 tbs water
1 tbs cornstarch
1 tbs chopped fresh parsley, for garnish

 

Method:

Sprinkle cutlets with salt and pepper. Mix together apple, cheese, and oat bran in a small bowl. Divide apple mixture among chicken breasts, and roll up breasts around apple filling, jelly roll–style, starting at short end. Secure with toothpicks. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook chicken, turning once, until browned on both sides, 5 to 6 minutes total. Add wine and 1⁄2 cup water and simmer, covered, until chicken is cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer chicken to a serving platter. Stir together cornstarch and remaining 2  tbs water in a small bowl, then stir into skillet. Simmer, stirring constantly, until lightly thickened, about 1 minute. Pour sauce over chicken and garnish with parsley. *Adjusted from Allrecipes Magazine*

 

Note:

The cutlets can be stuffed and rolled early in the day, then covered and chilled.
