Ingredients

Stuffed Chicken Breasts

4
boneless skinless chicken breasts (1 lb)
12
slices turkey pepperoni
1/2
cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (2 oz)
Cooking spray
1/4
cup Progresso™ Italian style panko crispy bread crumbs

Mixed Greens Salad

2
cups mixed salad greens
1/4
cup light balsamic dressing

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Line cookie sheet with foil. Place chicken breasts flat on cutting surface. With knife parallel to cutting surface, cut lengthwise slit in each chicken breast, forming a pocket, keeping other 3 sides intact. Stuff each chicken breast with pepperoni and mozzarella cheese, pressing edges of each chicken breast to seal.
  • 2 Place chicken breasts on cookie sheet. Spray tops of chicken with cooking spray. Sprinkle bread crumbs evenly over chicken breasts. Spray with cooking spray.
  • 3 Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165°F). Serve chicken with salad greens tossed with dressing.
Tips  

Prepare chicken breasts up to a day ahead. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate. Bake just before serving.

Add extra veggies to your salad, like chopped red or green bell pepper, sliced tomato or thinly sliced red onion.
