If you love Rachael’s show and often rely on her tasty recipes, you’ll definitely want to check out this next one and consider using it as a healthy holiday treat!

Chicken breasts and veggies have never looked so fancy and tasted so great, that’s for sure!

But here, if you’ve missed that particular show, don’t make the same mistake twice!2

Check out the recipe below and make it a part of your holiday menu:

Ingredients:

4 whole boneless, skinless chicken breasts2

Salt and ground black pepper

48 green beans or enough to fill your chicken bundles

2 large red bell peppers, cut into about 30 strips the size of the green beans

2 tablespoons EVOO – Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 cup of chicken stock

1/4 teaspoon saffron threads

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1/3 cup cream

Instructions:

For this recipe, arrange 4 cutlets pounded to 1/8 of an inch thick on work surface.

Season the cutlets with salt and pepper on one side then lay about 6 or 7 green beans and 4 or 5 red pepper strips in the center, with the ends sticking out.2

Fold the bottom half of the chicken up around the bundle then roll the two ends around so it looks like a little package with green beans and red pepper sticking out.

Season the outside of the chicken with salt and ground black pepper.

In a large, nonstick skillet with two turns of the pan of EVOO over medium-high heat, cook the stuffed cutlets seam side-down.

Cook about 7-8 minutes, then turn to brown the other side.2

Remove the cooked chicken to a plate and reserve.

To the pan, add the saffron and ginger then pour in the chicken stock and bring up to a bubble.2

Stir in the cream and heat through.

Serve the chicken blooms topped with some of the cream sauce and Brown Rice Pilaf alongside.
