Are you ready to do some stuffing.... Pun intended... This week delicious delight by Smarty Marty is Stuffed Chicken Breast with Quinoa & Brown Rice. So Before we get started we need the following ingredients:
4 skinless boneless chicken breast pounded to 1/2
4 slices of deli seasoned chicken breast
1 small onion diced fine
1/4 red, green and yellow bell pepper diced fine
1/2 cup fresh spinach chopped fine
1/2 cup mushroom chopped fine
2 garlic cloves chopped fine
1 8oz cream cheese softened
1/2 cup butter melted
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1 egg beaten
1/2 teaspoon Borgo de Medici mixed spices (optional)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
Place spinach, onion, garlic, mushrooms, bell pepper and softened cream cheese in a medium size bowl. Mix well adding the Borgo de Medici spices to mixture. Set aside.
Lay the pounded chicken breast out on a clean surface. Place the sliced deli chicken slices over the top of the chicken breast. Spoon some of the cream cheese vegetable mixture on to each one. Roll up chicken to enclose the cream cheese vegetable mixture. Secure with a toothpick.
Roll each chicken breast in flour, then roll in beaten egg. Finally roll in seasoned bread crumbs with Parmesan cheese added until well coated. Spoon remaining melted butter over the top of each chicken breast. Arrange in shallow baking dish.
Bake uncovered for 35 minutes in preheated oven, then increase heat to 500 degrees or use oven's broiler to cook for an additional 5 minutes or until golden brown on the top
