'Low-in-Everything' Broccoli & Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Submitted by: NICOLETTEDIMON

Introduction

Seriously low in fat, calories, sodium - but extremely rich in Protein. Excellent with a side salad and of course, there are sooo many variations you can do with this! I have added Turkey Ham (low in fat too!) and have done without Breadcrumbs. See below for other variations/options. Seriously low in fat, calories, sodium - but extremely rich in Protein.

Ingredients

    * 3 Chicken Breasts (or 6 halves)
    * 2 cups Broccoli, chopped fine (more or less, depending on how much you like)
    * ~ 1/4 c. Breadcrumbs - more so eyeing this up
    * ~ 3 tbsp Parmesan Cheese (fresh is great!)
    * 1 egg white
    * 3 oz. 1/3 less fat cream cheese (FF is fine too, but a little fat won't hurt in this recipe!)
    * Salt & Pepper (optional/to taste)
    * Garlic Powder (optional/to taste)
    * .5 c Finely chopped Turkey Ham (not included in nutritional info, but does not add much) - and is completely optional!

Directions

Preheat oven to 400

* If chicken breast is not "halved", cut into halves. For ease (and no mess), put chicken in a bag, or wrap in saran wrap and pound to 1/4" thickness.

* Spread each breast with about .5 oz of cream cheese

* Add chopped broccoli to each breast

* If you wanted to add Turkey ham, do so as well

* Wrap tightly and hold together with a toothpick.

* Completely optional (this can be done without egg white, but I added it anyway - I usually don't use it though): Roll wrapped breast in egg white and place on sprayed cookie sheet

* Sprinkle on bread crumbs (1/4 c was an approximate - but I usually use a lot less by sprinkling rather than rolling)

Bake for 25-30 minutes (cook times vary!). For the last 5 minutes, sprinkle on freshly shredded parmesan cheese. Don't need a lot. Bake until cheese melted.

Again, excellent with a side salad or reduced fat crescent rolls (with this recipe, it won't hurt!).

Enjoy! :)

  • Instead of breading the chicken, I topped it with Ragu and baked it, then topped it with mozzarella for a parmesan chicken meal. I also used 2 oz cream cheese mixed with 3 oz ricotta cheese for the filling. This was great in the tomato sauce, and I'm looking forward to trying it breaded next time! - 2/8/11

  • Even my VERY picky 7 year old loved this chicken!! He usually won't eat anything green but he ate this up. Thanks! The only thing different I did was add Italian seasoning to the bread crumbs - 4/20/10

  • I made this tonight and it was very yummy! Even my picky toddler liked it. I didn't use the cheese on top because I didn't have any but next time I will try it and I bet it will be even better! - 10/25/09
