An ovenproof skillet is the key to this easy recipe. Breaded stuffed chicken breasts are browned on one side on the top of the stove, carefully flipped and transferred--still in the pan--to the oven to finish cooking. This guarantees a nice brown crust and moist, tender chicken

Recipe Ingredients for Pampered Chicken

16 oz chicken breast halves, (about 1 pound), trimmed of fat
4 slices reduced fat provolone cheese, (2 ounces)
2 egg whites
1/3 cup seasoned (Italian-style) breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 Lemon wedges, for garnish

Recipe Directions for Pampered Chicken

  1. 1.Preheat oven to 400F. Place a chicken breast, skinned-side down, on a cutting board. Keeping the blade of a sharp knife parallel to the board, make a horizontal slit along the thinner, long edge of the breast, cutting nearly through to the opposite side. Open the breast so it forms two flaps, hinged at the center. Place a slice of cheese on one flap, leaving a 1/2-inch border at the edge. Press remaining flap down firmly over the cheese and set aside. Repeat with the remaining breasts.

  2. 2.Lightly beat egg whites with a fork in a medium bowl. Mix breadcrumbs, Parmesan, parsley, salt and pepper in a shallow dish. Holding a stuffed breast together firmly, dip it in the egg whites and then roll in the breadcrumbs. Repeat with the remaining breasts.

  3. 3.Heat oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the stuffed breasts and cook until browned on one side, about 2 minutes. Turn the breasts over and place the skillet in the oven.

  4. 4.Bake the chicken until no longer pink in the center, about 20 minutes. Serve with lemon wedges.
