This recipe for Skinny Broccoli and Cheese Stuffed Chicken combines two of our favorites…chicken and The Laughing Cow® Cheese wedges!  The trick to making this recipe work is to make the chicken cutlets as thin as possible, making the chicken easier to roll up. You will also need a few toothpicks to keep the cutlets tightly rolled during cook time in the oven.

 

Skinny Broccoli and Cheese Stuffed Chicken

Cooking time: 20-25 minutes

Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 — 8oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1-2 cups cooked broccoli, chopped
  • 3 wedges of The Laughing Cow® Original Swiss Cheese
  • ¼ cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • ¼ cup whole wheat breadcrumbs
  • 1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 egg whites
  • 6 toothpicks

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Wash and dry the chicken breasts. Slice the chicken breasts length wise into two equal sized cutlets. You should have 6 cutlets.
  3. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Place egg whites in a shallow dish and set aside.
  5. Mix Panko breadcrumbs, whole wheat bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper in a separate shallow dish and set aside.
  6. Open The Laughing Cow® Cheese wedges and separate into 6 equal pieces. Spread one piece of The Laughing Cow® Cheese onto chicken cutlet. Add the cooked broccoli on top of the cheese. Roll chicken cutlet as tight as possible. Secure with 1-2 toothpicks.
  7. Next, take the secured cutlet filled with cheese and broccoli and brush lightly with egg whites. Immediately, place chicken cutlet into bread crumb mixture to cover. Place secured chicken cutlet, seam-side down, onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
  8. Repeat steps with other chicken cutlets. Spray chicken cutlets lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
  9. Bake chicken cutlets for 20-25 minutes until done.
