Caprese Stuffed Chicken

Hi everyone!

We are now in our 4th week of cardio block and my life pretty much consists of study all day every day. Our whole class took a hit on our last Pathology exam – it was so hard. The entire class morale is pretty down in the dumps. I often find it hard not to get beaten down by med school. Here I’m surround by some of the smartest and hardest working people and it’s tough to see us all feel so defeated and low. I suppose this is part of the “right of passage” that all medical students go through but it’s still tough. Next time you go to your doc thank them for working their butt of in med school to help take great care of you! 😉 

Onto a yummy recipe I threw together in between my run and heading back to the library yesterday. 

Caprese Stuffed Chicken

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • Fresh mozzarella 
  • Fresh tomatoes 
  • Fresh basil
  • Olive oil 
  • Salt + Pepper

The first thing I did was pound the chicken breast each into thin strips, I cut them each in half so I had four. Then I cut the tomatoes into strips and the fresh mozzarella into chunks. I stuffed each breast with basil, tomatoe, mozzarella, and rolled them up into little chicken “roll ups”. I put them on tin foil and drizzled them with olive oil! I cooked them for 25 minutes at  375, or until the chicken reaches 160 degrees. I served it with some pasta. Enjoy!
