Last night, I had the pleasure of cooking for my Grandma again, and I made for her this delicious and cheesy stuffed chicken parmesan. I do admit though that the preparation of this dish was little messy lol, but I still had a blast. One of the things I love about this recipe is that after the chicken is finished cooking, you have all this yummy melted cheese inside each chicken. I love cheese!  

Stuffed Chicken Parmesan 

INGREDIENTS

Three or four chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
1/8 tsp salt
1 C. mozzarella cheese 
2 C. flour
6 eggs, beaten
2 C.  Italian seasoning Progresso bread crumbs
1 C olive oil, for frying
3 C tomato sauce
½ C parmesan cheese
2 Tbsps basil

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking dish with foil, grease it with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.

Directions 

1. Slice a hole into each chicken breast. Next, fill the pockets evenly with the mozzarella cheese. Press the ends of the chicken together to close the hole. Divide the flour, eggs, and breadcrumbs into three separate shallow bowls.

2. Being careful to keep the chicken from opening, dip the stuffed chicken in the flour, shaking off the extra. Dip the floured chicken into the egg, then into the breadcrumbs, coating it evenly. Heat the oil in a large pan over medium heat. Cook the chicken until golden brown on both sides. 

3. Place ⅔ of the tomato sauce evenly on the bottom of a baking dish. Place the chicken on top. Top with the remaining of the tomato sauce, then sprinkle the parmesan and basil on top. Bake for twenty-thirty five minutes. Enjoy! 

 

Yesterday I went to my all-time favorite bookstore Barnes & Noble and bought two new cookbooks. Book one has crockpot recipes and book two has pressure cooker recipes. I cannot wait to begin sharing new recipes with you real soon.
