Sounds really good but isn't there a step missing? Do you have to pound the breast so that you can stuff and roll them?

Do you know how many points this is for Weight Watchers??

I'd say it's more like 6 (since you can subtract 10 calories for every gram of fiber), and you could get it down lower using lower fat cheese or less cheese. I'd be inclined to replace cheese with bacon bits - lots of flavor, not that much calories.

I skipped the cauliflower and put tomatoes in instead, added some fresh basil and used fat free mozzerella instead of the feta and it was delicious! great recipe that can easily be used with a variety of veggies/cheeses!

I made this last night and I thought it was very tasty! I used all broccoli because I needed to get rid of it and for the dressing I used Cheese Fantastico Light. It has almost no calories and it taste really good. Instead of feta I used ricotta because the creamy consistency made it easy to blend with the vegetables. Also, I couldn't find non-fat mozzarella as per another suggestion so ricotta was a low calorie choice. You may have to add some salt though because ricotta is a fairly bland cheese. I also added bacon bits to the stuffing. This was a great suggestion! The other thing that I added was cayenne pepper when making the chicken. This made a huge difference! It added a lot of flavor and the perfect amount of kick.
