Laughing Cow Chicken



While Phillip & I were on our pre-Mexico diet (we're still on it, just on a smaller scale), I scoured all of the food blogs that I read for some healthy recipes. When I found this, I scored the healthy weeknight meal jackpot! It is so fast and easy that I make it almost every week. The star of this recipe is the Laughing Cow brand Light Cheese Wedges. I use the garlic & herb flavor, but you can use any flavor that you find. You can normally find the cheese in the specialty cheese case by the deli (I've beed told it can't be found in Rushville, you can also use any light cheese spread).

Ingredients:


4 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
4 Laughing Cow Light Cheese Wedges
Cooking spray
1/2 cup Breadcrumbs
dash of dried Parsley Flakes
dash of grated Parmesean Cheese

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400F.

Lay each chicken breast flat on a cutting board. Cut a horizontal slice to create a pocket in the side of the chicken breast. Stuff the pocket with the cheese, don't skimp, it's good! Pat the chicken breasts dry with paper towel, and spray with cooking spray. Combine the breadcrumbs, parsley and parmesean, and sprinkle over both sides of the chicken breast. Bake on a cookie sheet for 15-20 minutes, until done.

Serves: 4
