Number of Servings: 8


    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


1. Preheat oven to 400F.
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 165F, 5 to 7 minutes.

    I love this recipe. I've made it several times and it's one of my go-to's when I don't know what to make for dinner - 9/18/10

    ok as written-- i generally skip the cream cheese and just put a slice of swiss cheese and ham on the chicken and then add the breadcrumb mixture - 6/18/21
