Heat Advisory for Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana

IL, TN, IN, KT (AP) -- A heat advisory remains in effect until 7:00pm CDT Saturday.
Temperatures will continue their heat up through the 90s each afternoon over the next several afternoons as high pressure aloft builds into and across the nation's midsection.
These temperatures will combine with rather muggy conditions to produce afternoon heat index values from 100 to 105 several days in a row. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside.
When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening.
Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
Wear lightweight and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water.
Precautionary/preparedness actions: A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is expected. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun and check up on relatives and neighbors. Make sure outside pets have plenty of water.

Made by: Amanda B. Novy, Registered Dietitian, Springfield Clinic

•    1/3 cup walnut pieces
•    1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
•    6 Kalamata olives, pitted and chopped
•    4 sun dried tomatoes (in oil), diced
•    1 tbsp lemon juice                                              
•    1/2 tbsp oregano
•    1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
•    6 chicken breasts (4 ounces each)
•    1/2 cup of basil leaves
•    Pinch of salt and pepper
•    1 tsp extra virgin olive oil

Preheat oven to 400.

In a small bowl, combine walnuts, feta, olives, sun dried tomatoes, lemon juice, oregano, red pepper flakes and set aside.

Cut chicken breasts lengthwise and gently pound chicken with a mallet to flatten. Place 4-5 basil leaves on the flattened chicken breasts followed by 1/3 cup of the walnut and feta mixture. Spread evenly.

Begin rolling chicken from one end to the other forming a pinwheel shape. Brush with olive oil and season lightly with salt and pepper. Secure roll with butcher string or toothpicks to prevent the roll from unraveling.

Bake in oven on a greased baking pan for 25-30 minutes or until internal temperature is 165oF.
