Tyson boneless, skinless chicken breast, 8 pieces
Pepper, 1 tsp
Salt, 1/2 tsp
Swiss Cheese, 2/3 cup, shredded
Philadelphia Light cream cheese, 4 tbsp
Bread crumbs, dry, grated, plain, 1/2 cup
Thyme, ground, 2 tbsp
Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 3 tbsp
Ham, extra lean, (5% fat), 1/2 cup, diced
2. Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 teaspoon pepper and salt. Combine cheese and cream cheese in a bowl. Combine the remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper with breadcrumbs, parsley (or thyme) and 2 teaspoons oil in another bowl.
3. Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a large, ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook the chicken until browned on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Move the chicken to the center so all pieces are touching. Spread with the cheese mixture, sprinkle with ham, then top with the breadcrumb mixture.
4. Bake until the chicken is no longer pink in the center and an instant-read thermometer registers 165°F, 5 to 7 minutes.
Number of Servings: 8
