Yeah so okay it's been like a year since I have bothered with this site and I thought maybe I should add some stuff. Just so you all know I have totally gathered, saved and written lots of stuff, I just never bothered to actually add it to this blog. Now, please understand that I am not stating that updates are going to be more frequent (mostly because I am lazy) what I am stating is that I will totally think about trying harder to actually post to this blog. You're welcome!
SKINNI(ER) CHICKEN CORDON BLEU
Preparation time: 15 mintues
Cooking time: 30 minutes
Weight Watchers Points Plus Value: 8 (per serving)
4 Foster Farms Thin-Sliced Boneless Skinless Breast fillets
4 slices Kraft Singles (2% milk) Swiss Cheese
4 slices Oscar Meyer Deli sliced Ham
1/2 Cup Progresso Panko (Italian Style) Bread Crumbs
1/2 Cup Sunnyside Real Egg Product
4 Tsp salted butter
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
Pound chicken to 1/4 inch (or less) pieces. Assemble ingredients to make a production line...Chicken, cheese , ham, toothpicks, egg wash, bread crumbs.
Place 1 slice of ham and one slice of cheese in center of chicken breast and jellyroll the chicken. Secure ends with toothpicks. Using one hand coat chicken with the egg wash. Using your other(clean dry hand) sprinkle panko crumbs onto breast to lightly coat. Do not roll directly in crumbs as you will likely use too much on the first few pieces leaving nothing for the rest of the chicken pieces.
Place assembled chicken onto baking sheet. Lightly spray the chicken with cooking spray (I use an olive oil spray, but any type will do) and bake for 30 to 40 minutes depending on your oven. Chicken should be white and juices should run clear. You can always use a meat thermometer to test doneness.
Remove chicken from oven. Use a microwave to melt 4 tsp of butter. Drizzle 1 tsp over each piece of chicken and serve warm with salad, fruit or veggies for a lovely and satisfying skinni(er) meal.
And Nancy don't make any snarkey comments about my plates...I was totally channeling Beyonce Chicken.
