  • Yield: Makes 4 servings
  • Cook time:10 Minutes
  • Prep time:15 Minutes
  • Bake:20 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 (6-ounce) skinned and boned chicken breasts
  • 1 (8-ounce) container light buttery-garlic-and-herb spreadable cheese
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/4 cup nonfat buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

Preparation

Place chicken between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap, and flatten to a 1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet or rolling pin.

Spread cheese evenly over 1 side of each chicken breast. Fold short ends of each chicken breast over center, covering cheese, and secure with wooden picks.

Whisk together egg whites and buttermilk in a small bowl. Combine breadcrumbs and next 3 ingredients in a shallow dish. Dip chicken in egg white mixture, and dredge in breadcrumb mixture.

Cook chicken breasts in hot oil in a large nonstick skillet 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until chicken breasts are browned. Place chicken on a wire rack, and place the wire rack in a jelly-roll pan.

Bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest portion of chicken breast registers 170°.

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Alouette Light Garlic & Herbs Spreadable Cheese, and Neva Betta Whole Wheat Crackers.
