  • 1/4 cup, sliced Almonds
  • 4 serving Garlic & Fine Herbs Gournay Cheese
  • 1/3 cup, quartered or chopped Apple
  • 3 tbsp Parsley
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 28 oz raw Chicken Breast
  • 1 tbsp Light Olive Oil


  1. Toast almonds in a dry skillet turning once for 2-3 minutes or in a 350°F oven on a sheet pan.  Set aside to cool.  
  2. In a small bowl thoroughly mix the cheese (Boursin brand can be found in most supermarkets), chopped unpeeled apples, chopped parsley, almonds, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl.  
  3. Slice the chicken breasts lengthwise creating a pocket for the stuffing; generously salt and pepper on the inside and outside of each breast.  Divide the stuffing and fill each breast and secure with a tooth pick(s) on the open end.  
  4. Heat the skillet over medium high heat with oil.  Cook the chicken breasts for about 6 minutes each side until the juices run clear and they are no longer pink in the center.  Increase time if the breasts are thick. Serve immediately.

How we calculate the Net Atkins Count™

In the Atkins Nutritional Approach®, the Net Atkins Count™ is calculated by subtracting the number of grams of fiber and polyols (such as glycerin and sugar alcohols) from the total grams of carbohydrates in whole foods. This reflects the idea that fiber and polyols minimally impacts blood sugar levels at the doses present in the products.
