Week 3 recipes

Well, I'm three weeks into my new kitchen and the recipes keep tumbling out of my brain. Here's what I've been up to:

 3 whole chicken breasts
6 thin slices Swiss cheese
6 thin slices cooked ham
1 Cup Flour mixed with seasoning for chicken

1 Clove Garlic, minced
1 Onion, minced
1 Cup Fresh Mushrooms, sliced
1 Low Sodium Chicken bouillon cube
1 Tbls Butter or Margerine
1 Tbls Flour
1 Cup boiling water
 *Pinch of Thyme
*Dash of Worcestershire sauce
*Dash of pepper


Remove skin and bone from chicken, then cut each breast in half. Place 1 chicken piece between two pieces of plastic wrap and pound to about 3mm thickness. Repeat with remaining chicken. Top each piece with a slice of cheese and a slice of ham. Roll up and secure with a wooden pick. Coat with seasoned flour. Cover. Chill thoroughly 20 minutes.

To bake place on ungreased baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees F or (210 degrees C) for 20 minutes or until chicken is tender.

To make sauce - brown mushrooms in butter and stir. Dissolve chicken bouillon in water then add, with remaining ingredients to onions. Cook and stir until mixture thickens. The sauce may be thinned with a little water or dry white wine if necessary.

Serves 6.

6 medium sized Tomatoes
5 oz shredded, part-skim Mozzarella Cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1 Clove Garlic, minced
salt and pepper

Heat oven to 400°F.
Cut tomatoes in half lengthwise. Using a melon baller or spoon, scoop out insides of each tomato, roughly chop pulp. Combine pulp, mozzarella cheese, garlic, basil, and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Place tomato shells cut side up on a baking sheet that has been coated with cooking spray. Spoon tomato-pulp mix into shells.
Bake 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and lightly browned. Serve warm.
