This recipe for Skinny Broccoli and Cheese Stuffed Chicken combines two of my favorites…chicken and The Laughing Cow Cheese!  Since making this recipe, I have come up with so many other ingredient combinations for chicken that I will make sure to share in the coming weeks.  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.
