I love coming up with different ways to cook chicken. It’s cheap and it’s low in calories. I have all kinds of different cuts of chicken in the fridge right now because Justin bought a whole chicken and cut it into pieces. (I will blog about how to do that later. It is a definite money saver, as long as you can get past the whole dealing with raw chicken thing).
Anyway, I’ve seen a couple recipes for stuffed chicken breast floating around lately and was inspired. I stuffed these with low fat cheddar cheese, spinach, and some spices and coated it with some panko seasoned bread crumbs. It turned out super juicy, full of flavor, and fairly low on the calorie end (383 calories for a large chicken breast).
This was easy and quick to prepare too. Pound the chicken, stuff the chicken, roll the chicken, bake the chicken, and eat the chicken! Easy as that.
It was so easy that I even had time to snap a few pictures of my adorable two year old while preparing it.
No, he didn’t eat this with us. That’s his dinner, a pop tart, on his face. Great parenting. I know!
That’s besides the point, Back to the chicken…
