Healthy Stuffed Chicken

This is another recipe I got from Maria Menounos. Yeah, I'm a big fan of hers! Love her!! My husband said this recipe was a definite keeper and a "home run" (he associates everything with sports. Hahaha!)!! If he approves then it must be good!

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, flattened
3/4 lb low-fat feta cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup packed, chopped baby spinach
1/2 cup fresh chopped parsley
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp ground black pepper
one 14oz can tomato sauce
1 diced mango, peeled and seeded
1/4 tsp seeded and diced jalapeno pepper (I left this ingredient out)
salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Mix all the stuffing ingredients in a bowl. Spoon out half of the mix onto each flattened chicken breast. Wrap the chicken around the stuffing and place in a small greased baking pan. Bake for 40 minutes.

While the chicken is baking, prepare the sauce. Combine all the ingredients in a pot over medium heat. Bring just to a boil, then turn heat down to low and simmer, stirring off and on, for 15 minuted or until sauce becomes thick.

Spoon the sauce over cooked chicken and serve.

Yield: 2 (the stuffing makes a lot, so you could even get 3-4 stuffed chicken breasts)
