Artichoke-Stuffed Chicken Breast Recipe
6 4 oz chicken breasts
1 clove garlic
1 1/2 cup frozen or canned artichoke
1 hearts, rinsed and drained
1 egg yolk
2 tbsp heavy cream
1 cup fresh bread crumbs
1 dash nutmeg
1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley,
1/4 cup chicken broth
Heat the oven to 425 degrees. Grease a baking pan.
Salt and pepper the chicken breasts. With a very sharp small knife,
cut a pocket horizontally into each breast. Do not cut in half. Set
aside while you make the stuffing.
In a food processor, place the garlic, artichoke hearts, egg yolk,
cream, bread crumbs, nutmeg and about 1/4 cup of parsley. Process to
mix, but do not puree.
Place 2 to 3 tablespoons of stuffing in each breast pocket. Do not
close the pocket-the stuffing will puff up and out a bit.
Place the stuffed breasts in the baking dish. Pour the chicken broth
over the chicken. Sprinkle with paprika. Bake 12 to 15 minutes. Place
the breasts on a platter, spoon the pan juices over and sprinkle with
reserved 2 tablespoons parsley.

Food Tips of the Week
A few tips on healthy eating
In planning a diet, the important thing is to also endeavour to restrict your ingestion of refined carbohydrates, salt and fats.
Some low carb diet guidlines:
* You can make delicious smoothies using reduced carb yogurt.
Admittedly, you can't really describe it as cooking, but if you must have smoothies you can make them with reduced carbohydrate yogurt and fruit. Of course, you will need to make sure you use fruit that is low in carbs and use the whole fruit as the fiber is important too.
* Understand the food labels
Watch out for the food label that proclaims 'low carb' - check the actual nutritional information on the reverse of the tin or package. A good number of are only marginally decreased and in some instances still higher than a competitors standard brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' does not always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are identically the same.
Lycopene super foods
(includes apricot, red bell peppers & rosehip)
The nutrient lypcopene is a naturally occurring chemical compound and a member of the same group of phytochemicals as carotene. Lycopene is accountable for the red color of quite a few natural foods.
Usefully, unlike most other nutritional compounds, this useful phytochemical does not degrade if cooked, but is noticeably increased in efficacy by cooking.
Lycoprene's most valuable health contribution is that it is an antioxidant and appears to be an asset in the battle to lower the risks of developing cancer.
This useful phytochemical is the most potent fighter of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It's also believed to slow down the growth of atherosclerosis.
