It should be deep enough to form a pocket the length of the chicken breast.

Salt and pepper the inside slits of the chicken..

Spoon the herb stuffing into the slit. Gently press the chicken breast together to close the slits.

Set a medium-size nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, and spray with olive oil. Brown the chicken breasts for 2 minutes on each side, seasoning each cooked side with salt and pepper.

Lower heat to medium, cover with a lid, and cook 6 more minutes..

Yogurt is not permitted during the weight loss phase of the Medifast plan. I believe it is due to carb content.

Save it for maintenence!..

Comment #1

Funny thing about yogurt: whole milk yogurt actually has fewer carbs than either lowfat or nonfat yogurt. Go figure!..

Comment #2

Thanks for the info I forgot you can not use it till maint. You do realize we are talking .5oz per serving which is equal to 8 cal, 1 carb and 0 fat..

Comment #3

That's actually the case with a lot of things. It's the reason that we're not supposed to worry about eating low fat salad dressings. Usually they have more carbs than the full fat ones...

Comment #4

Yes, but it's not a good habit to get into and it is an extra carb which for some folks can make a difference...

Comment #5

Janis, thanks for taking the time to put this recipe out here for all of us! I appreciate it..

Comment #6

Speaking of yogurt, Nutrisystem has recently approved a new yogurt as an Medifast snack. It's got I think 4 carbs per serving. I think Dannon makes it and it's low cal low carb something or other. I couldn't find it at Stop & Shop but maybe some of you will have better luck...

Ya' think this recipe would work if I used cottage cheese (processed until smooth) instead of the yogurt? 'Cause then it is totally Medifast legal (as long as I count the amount of cottage cheese used as part of my "lean," correct)?.

Or, I suppose I could spray the inside with cookie spray or use a drizzle of the allowed oil.

In any event, I am DEFINITELY gonna' play with this, since it sounds yummy! Thanks SO much for posting it! I am t.i.r.e.d. of plain chicken ....

Janis, it was on the Medifast "Nutrition Support" Board. I think it was LB1107 who posted this:.

Hello - My question is Dannon has come out with this wonderful product Cannon Light & Fit yogurt BUT they have a new sub product that is Carb and Sugar Control it is pre-portioned into 4ozs, sweetened with Splenda the whole serving is only 60calories and 3carbs is this legal as a snack or meal or anything!!! I hope so beause it rocks!.

Nutrition Support said it would count as 1 snack, just to be mindful of total calories/carbs in the day..
