Chicken... Again!

Let me start out by saying that I have wanted to try this recipe for so long! I've had it in my list of to-do recipes for about a month now. I finally had the ingredients and nothing else planned (I know, it's amazing!) so I jumped right in. I have to say that this is one tasty meal. I was blown away by how fast and simple yet juicy and satisfying it was. It could definitely make it into Rachel Ray's 30-Minute Meals.

Italian Stuffed Chicken Breasts

  • 2 7 oz. Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • 1/8 tsp. Salt
  • 3/4 tsp. Dried Basil
  • 1/4 tsp. Crushed Red Pepper
  • 2 (3/4 oz) Part-Skim Mozzarella Cheese Sticks
  • 10 sprays Wishbone Balsamic Spray Dressing (5 each)
  • 1/8 tsp. Paprika - I used 1 tsp
  • 1/8 cup Dry Breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • Olive Oil Cooking Spray
Pound chicken to 1/4” thickness. Sprinkle with salt, 1/4 tsp basil, and crushed red pepper, and garlic powder. Sprinkle each breast with 1 Tbsp. minced bell pepper. Place 1 cheese stick lengthwise down the center; roll up jelly roll fashion.

Spray rolls with Balsamic Dressing. Combine paprika and breadcrumbs, and a dash of oregano and basil; sprinkle chicken with mixture, coating all the way around.

Place on a baking sheet coated with non-stick cooking spray – seam side down. Lightly coat with non-stick spray; sprinkle with remaining basil. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes or until done. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
