Makes 8 servings

INGREDIENTS:

4 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
1/2 Cup White Whole Wheat Flour
1 Tbsp Paprika
1-1/2 tsp Ground Turmeric
1/4 tsp Finely Ground Black Pepper
2 tsp Garlic Powder
1-1/2 tsp Onion Powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp Dried Oregano
2 tsp Dried Thyme

2 tsp dried rosemary
1 tsp Cayenne Pepper (optional)
2 Tbsp olive oil or Avocado Oil
3 Tbsp Vegan Butter
3 Cups sliced Mushroom Caps (cremini, shitake, baby bella)
3/4 Cup Marsala Wine
1 Cup Chicken Stock
Chopped Chives for Garnish

DIRECTIONS:
Butterfly chicken breast halves and pound thin. Cutting each Butterfly down the center to give you 2 thin chicken breasts.
In a shallow bowl or plate combine the flour and all seasoning spices and stir to combine thoroughly. Quickly dredge the chicken breast halves in the seasoned flour mixture, shaking to remove any excess flour.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until very hot but not smoking. Add 1 tablespoon of the margarine and cook the chicken breasts until golden brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and set aside. Add another Tbsp of the margarine to the pan and add the mushrooms. Cook, stirring frequently, until mushrooms are golden brown around the edges and have given off their liquid. Add the Marsala wine and bring to a boil, scraping to remove any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. When the wine has reduced by half, add the chicken stock and cook for 3 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened slightly. Lower the heat to medium and return the chicken breasts to the pan and continue to cook until they are cooked through and the sauce has thickened, about 5 to 6 minutes. Swirl in the remaining Tbsp of margarine. Garnish with chopped chives and serve with your favorite side. Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS:
6 Chicken Breasts, butterflied and pounded flat
2 Boxes Cremini Mushrooms (stems removed, cleaned and sliced)
1 Large Sweet Onion Chopped
10 Garlic Cloves, minced
2 tsp fresh thyme or 1 tsp dried thyme
2 tsp fresh rosemary, chopped or 1 tsp dried
Salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbsp Grapeseed Or Avocado Oil
4 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
Kitchen Twine

DIRECTIONS:
Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a large skillet over med-high heat. Once the oil is shimmering, add the mushrooms. Cook for 3-5 min and add the onions. Cook mixture until onions are soft, another 3 min or so. Add the garlic, thyme, and rosemary. Cook until the herbs and garlic are fragrant, about a min. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Remove from heat and allow to cool for a little while. Heat oven to 350F.

Meanwhile prepare the chicken breasts by butterflying, and pounding.

On your cutting board, place 2 pieces of kitchen twine down vertically. Place the prepared chicken breast on top of the kitchen twine so that there is a piece of twine at either end of the chicken breast ( the longest side of the chicken should be perpendicular to the kitchen twine). Spread some mustard evenly on the chicken breast then layer with mushroom stuffing mixture. Roll from left to right and secure with the twine. Trim the ends. Place rolls on a greased baking sheet. Spray rolls with cooking spray and sprinkle with Mrs. dash Chicken Spice and paprika. Bake for 30 min or until a meat thermometer registers 180F in the center. Remove from oven and cover with foil for 10 min. Snip off the twine before slicing. Guiltless Eating! ūüôā
