  1. Totally delicious recipe! I halved and pounded 2 breasts, making four servings (3 oz each). Works great with WW Points Plus…. added the chopped sundried tomato, basil pesto and then used half fat free mozzarella and half regular to lower the fat a little. Rolled up with tooth picks, and then seasoned. BAM! this dish has F L A V O R. I love this, and my husband did too. Each portion was 4 points. FOUR delicious, can’t wait to make it again points. Thanks!
