Recipe Ingredients for Cream Cheese Pesto Stuffed Chicken

4 chicken breast, boneless, skinless
1 egg white
1/2 c breadcrumbs
2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
2 tbsp cream cheese, reduced fat
1 tbsp pesto

Recipe Directions for Cream Cheese Pesto Stuffed Chicken

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.

  2. Combine cream cheese, pesto and pepper in a small bowl with a fork.

  3. Cut a horizontal slit along the thin, long edge of a chicken breast half, nearly through to the opposite side. Open up each breast and place one-fourth of the filling in the center. Close the breast over the filling, pressing the edges firmly together to seal. Repeat with the remaining chicken breasts and filling.

  4. Lightly beat egg white with a fork in a medium bowl. Place breadcrumbs in a shallow glass dish. Hold each chicken breast half together and dip in the egg white, then dredge in the breadcrumbs. (Discard leftovers.)

  5. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken breasts; cook until browned on one side, about 2 minutes. Place the chicken, browned-side up, on the prepared baking sheet. Bake until the chicken is no longer pink in the center or until an instant-read thermometer registers 170F, about 20 minutes.
