Number of Servings: 2


    1/4 cup Fiber One Original bran cereal
    1/8 tsp. garlic powder
    1/8 tsp. onion powder
    Dash cayenne pepper
    One 8-oz. raw boneless skinless lean chicken breast cutlet, pounded to 1/2-inch thickness
    Dash each salt and black pepper
    1 wedge The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese
    1 1/2 tbsp. chopped jarred jalapeņo slices (about 6 slices)
    1 tbsp. fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking pan with nonstick spray and set aside.

Place cereal in a sealable plastic bag and, removing as much air as possible, seal. Using a meat mallet (or other heavy utensil), carefully crush cereal to a breadcrumb-like consistency through the bag. Add garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne pepper, and shake to mix. Set aside.

Place chicken cutlet flat on a clean and dry surface; season with salt and black pepper. Spread the upward-facing side with cheese and evenly top with chopped jalapeņo. Carefully roll up the cutlet over the filling. If needed, secure with toothpicks. Lightly cover all exposed areas of the chicken with egg substitute. Using your fingers or a spoon, evenly coat with breadcrumb mixture.

Place chicken roll in the baking pan. Cover the pan with foil, and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.

Carefully remove foil and return pan to the oven, uncovered, to bake until chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes.

Let cool slightly, remove toothpicks (if using), and dig in!

Serving Size:  2 - 4 oz pieces of chicken

Number of Servings: 2
