Ricotta-Stuffed Chicken Breasts
Stuffed chicken breasts, just oozing with cheese, are bound to be a hit with kids and adults alike.
—3/4 cup (83 g) shredded Swiss cheese
—1/2 cup (125 g) ricotta cheese
—1 tablespoon (2.4 g) chopped fresh thyme
—1/8 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
—6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
—2 teaspoons unsalted butter
In a small bowl, fold together the Swiss and ricotta cheeses, thyme, and black pepper. Place a chicken breast on a flat surface. Cut a 2 1/2-inch (6.4-cm) horizontal slit into the side of each chicken breast to form a pocket. Stuff each pocket with 2 tablespoons (30 g) of the cheese mixture. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 6 minutes. Turn; reduce the heat to medium and cook for 4-5 minutes longer, until the chicken is cooked through.

Awesome! Lots of low-sodium recipes that many in the family enjoy. Best of all I have a friend with a kidney condition and she has to watch her potassium intake - this is one of the few cookbooks that gives info. about Potassium and Phosphorus - please encourage others to add this overlooked info. to their recipes.
