Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast
I love cheese to a fault, so I am not keen on giving it up for dieting. Luckily, Weight Watchers offers a reduced fat string cheese which is used in this recipe.
The reduction in fat doesn't effect flavor, but it does make the cheese less meltable... a fact that I took full advantage of in this recipe for Grilled Stuffed Chicken Italiano (and also the reason I am leaving this blatant instruction before even getting to the recipe).
