Eat– for Good Health

Would you like my light version of the Malibu Chicken recipe?  I promise it is just as delicious.  I’m doubling the recipe and bringing a dinner down to Dana Point.  My son is having a hernia repair operation.  I’m also making Roasted Tomato and wild rice, polenta, and a California salad with greens and fruit.

Malibu Chicken Bundles Recipe


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  •   1/2 cup honey Dijon mustard, divided
  •   4 thin slices deli ham
  • 4 slices reduced-fat Swiss cheese
  •   1 can (8 ounces) unsweetened crushed pineapple, well drained
  •   1-1/2 cups panko (Japanese) bread crumbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  •   1/4 teaspoon pepper
  •   SAUCE:
  •   1 can (10-3/4 ounces) reduced-fat reduced-sodium condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  •   1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream

    1/8 teaspoon dried tarragon


    1. Flatten chicken breasts to 1/4-in. thickness. Spread 1 tablespoon mustard over each; layer with ham, cheese and pineapple. Fold chicken over pineapple; secure with toothpicks. Brush bundles with remaining mustard.
    2. In a shallow bowl, combine the bread crumbs, salt and pepper. Roll bundles in bread crumb mixture; place in an 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 170°. Discard toothpicks.
    3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the sauce ingredients. Cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through. Serve with chicken. Yield: 4 servings.

    Hi Mary Alice, Janessa, and Reba– Yup, I was sick with the flu after my flu shot. It only lasted a day. It is still worth getting the shot, my nurse sons tell me.

    Hey Jill. My son Ted came down from L.A. and was surprised I had a temperature of 101, but you, Ted, and Johnny were right– I felt terrific again after just a day.
