  • 2 cups chopped cooked chicken
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella, provolone, jack, or cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup (6 ounces) softened lo-fat cream cheese

  • 1 small can chopped green chilies, drained
  • 2 cloves garlic, diced

Pour 1/2 cup bottled tomato pasta sauce or pureed red bell peppers into the bottom of a large baking pan .

Spoon 1/4 to 1/3 cup chicken filling onto 2 brown rice wrappers or 2 sections from a whole wheat filo sheet cut into quarters stacked on top of each other. Roll and place seam side down in the baking dish. Spoon pasta sauce in a stripe across each roll, sprinkle with more shredded cheese.

Bake uncovered for 30 minutes, until heated through and cheese is melted.

Variations:

Substitute one of the following for the red bell pepper and green chili:

  • broccolli
  • spinach
  • cauliflower
  • onion
  • canned tomato, drained
  • eggplant
  • zucchini

Substitute diced baked tofu for the chicken.

Use leftover filling to make Giant Chicken Poppers.

I've always abhorred the idea that the only way to lose weight is to starve yourself, eat foods that are foreign to you, or gulp down special weight loss potions. I've proved that it is not only possible, but it's easy and fun to lose weight The UnDiet way. The UnDiet is extremely flexible, allowing you to make deviations based on your personal taste, the choices confronting you at any given time, your mood, your cooking skills and the time you have available. A gourmet cook can be happy with The UnDiet as well as those who don't know or care what saute means. You can eat out at restaurants and parties and still not fall off The UnDiet. You can eat olive oil, butter, cream, meat, mayonnaise and still not fall off The UnDiet. You can eat until you're full and still lose weight, once you've mastered the basic principles of The UnDiet. So dig in to this blog, subscribe to the newsletter for lots of extras not published on the blog and get ready for the Kindle book coming soon.
