Caprese Chicken Recipe – A Heart Healthy Meal

Caprese Chicken Recipe – A Heart Healthy Meal

Ah, February. Heart Month! Not just for lovers!! February is also heart health month! Now, we should be concerned with our heart health every month… and while I think the majority of the recipes on my blog are healthy and good for your heart, here’s one especially for Heart Health Month: Caprese Chicken Recipe – perfect for a family or a romantic date night at home!

Caprese Chicken is lightly seasoned with quality olive oil, herbs, and good-for-you tomatoes. Fresh mozzarella cheese is low salt and fat, and you can modify how much you include to fit your diet needs. (If you’re dairy-free, you could even leave this part off and add some extra crushed garlic and onions to fill out the flavors).

Food is a primary way we can care for our heart year-round, but there’s other ways too. Exercise, fresh air, quitting unhealthy habits like smoking and drinking are others.
And… being sure to get annual checkups, especially as you age. Ask your primary care doctor what else you can do to support a healthy heart!

I have stuffed chicken breast before, with feta cheese and arugula or something like this. And my Family was indeed impressed 😉 The Caprese combo sounds pretty amazing!
