Garlic Lemon Double Stuffed Chicken~Robynne
I found this recipe on Allrecipes.com. It is delicious and even my husband who isn't fond of cream cheese loves it!
- boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
- 8 ounce package cream cheese, cut into 1/2 inch slices (i use less)
- 8 oz
- cheddar cheese, cut into 1/2 inch slices
- 1 c
- 1 1/2 c
- italian bread crumbs (i use 1/2 panko bc)
- 1/2 c
- romano cheese, grated
- 1 Tbsp
- minced garlic (i use more)
- 3/4 c
- butter, melted
- 2 Tbsp
- lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp
- garlic salt, or to taste
- 1/2 tsp
- paprika (optional)
1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly coat a large, shallow baking dish with oil.
2Butterfly each breast by slicing in half horizontally through the center, cutting almost but not completely through. Place one slice each of Cheddar and cream cheese in the center of each breast. Close again as if placing between the pages of a book, or roll up if you prefer. Set aside.
3Pour milk into a shallow bowl. In a separate bowl, combine breadcrumbs and Romano cheese. Carefully dip each breast first in milk, then in breadcrumb mixture, patting lightly to firmly coat. Place breasts side by side in a single layer in pre-oiled baking dish, tucking edges under to seal.
4Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in lemon juice and garlic, and drizzle evenly over chicken. Season breasts with garlic salt and paprika, if using.
5Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until no longer pink in center and juices run clear.
