- 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
- 1 ½ cups breadcrumbs
- 1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
- 1 tsp pepper (or to taste)
- Feta cheese (any cheese may be substituted)
- Cooking spray
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine breadcrumbs, salt and pepper on a plate. Set aside.
Place chicken breasts, one at a time, in a gallon plastic bag and seal well. Using a flat meat mallet, pound the chicken until it is approximately ¼ inch thick.
Dredge one side of the chicken breast in the breadcrumb mixture and place the chicken breast, crumb side down, on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Repeat for each breast.
Place cheese on half of the chicken breast and fold the other half over the cheese to seal it in. Spray the chicken lightly with cooking spray and bake for 20-25 minutes. Check internal temperature with meat thermometer. It should be at least 175 degrees.
Serve over fresh spinach or greens with warm crusty bread. Easy enough for a weeknight, elegant enough to serve guests.
