Antipasto Stuffed Chicken Breasts...No more boring chicken breasts!  251 calories and 6 Weight Watcher PP | cookincanuck.com #recipe #healthy #glutenfree

Every year when I was a kid, we went to our friends’ Christmas Eve party. My friend and I spent the evening sneaking between the downstairs playroom and her room, dodging the adults in the kitchen as we check on the status of the best ever sticky chicken wings.

While we waited for the star of the show, we snacked on what I would now describe as antipasti, but as a kid I just knew it as plates and plates of cheese, salami and olives. In Italian, “antipasto” means “before the meal” and traditionally includes cured meats, cheeses (such as Provolone), artichoke hearts, olives, mushrooms and other savory morsels. Quite honestly, I could eat like that for every meal…little bits and bites of different tastes.
