Cuisine: Italian
Yield: 4
Ingredients
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 4 (3x1") slices Monterrey Jack Cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp Better Than Chicken Bouillon (or 1 tsp Chicken Bouillon Granules)
  • ¼ cup flour
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 cup bread crumbs or Panko
  • ¼ cup grated or flaked Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp. snipped parsley
  • 4 tbsp. olive oil
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375
  2. Rinse the chicken breasts. In thickest part of each chicken piece, cut a pocket just large enough for the cheese slice (I use Kitchen Shears - its so much easier than using a knife). Place a cheese slice in each pocket and close the pocket with a wooden toothpick.
  3. Seasoned Flour: stir together flour, season with salt and pepper in a shallow bowl or plate.
  4. Egg Wash: Whisk together the eggs and bouillon in one large, flat bowl. Better than Chicken Bouillon is perfect for this and tastes fabulous - even though it's vegetarian.
  5. Breading: Mix Parmesan cheese, parsley, and Panko bread crumbs in third shallow dish.
  6. Coat chicken on both sides with the seasoned flour, next dip in egg mixture; finally dredge both sides in the crumb/cheese mix patting to help it adhere to the egg & flour.
  7. Brown in hot oil 2-3 minutes on each side. Transfer to lightly oiled baking dish.
  8. Bake in 375 degree oven 20 minutes.
