Balsamic Chicken Recipe

Originally I was going to call this aggression chicken because you get to beat up the chicken with a hammer or meat mallet. 
But then I was inspired in the last few minutes of cooking this chicken to add some Balsamic Vinegar and the rest is history! 
Chicken Breast
Cherry Tomatoes
Fresh Spinach
1 Wedge of Laughing Cow Cheese
Balsamic Vinegar
Low-Fat Shredded Cheese
I started out by fileting my chicken and then hammering it out to be thinner between to sheets of saran wrap.
I then divided the wedge in half and spread one half on each half of the chicken. I sprinkled a little garlic seasoning on there for some flavor. I then put spinach on one half, and halved cherry tomatoes on the other. 
I put both halves together and fastened them with toothpicks. 
I baked it in the oven at 350 for thirty minutes, at that time I took it out of the oven and added balsamic vinegar to the top of it. There is no exact measurement on this, I just poured until it looked adequately soaked with the balsamic vinegar. 
Then I sprinkled on some of the shredded cheese and let it bake an additional 15 minutes until the cheese was melted and the chicken was cooked through. 
It was seriously so good! 
I'm looking forward to making it again. 
If you are on take shape for life, 
1 Wedge of Laughing Cow Cheese is a healthy fat. 
Beware of the weight of your chicken breast, you don't want to add extra cheese to the top if you are at your allotted ounces.
