Ingredients

  • oil to grease pan
  • 8 boneless skinless chicken breast halve
  • 8 oz cream cheese cut into thin strips
  • 8 oz cheddar cheese cut into 1/2 inch slices
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups Italian seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup romano cheese grated
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 3/4 cup butter melted
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp paprika (optional)

Instructions

  1. Slice each chicken breast in half horizontally through the center, cutting almost but not completely through. Place one slice of cheddar and one slice of cream cheese inside the center of each breast. Close and set aside.

  2. Combine breadcrumbs and Romano cheese in a shallow bowl. Pour milk into a separate bowl. Carefully dip each breast first in milk, then in the breadcrumb mixture, lightly patting crumbs to coat. Place chicken side by side in a shallow baking dish, coated with oil. Be sure to tuck open edges of chicken to seal.
  3. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt your butter. Stir in lemon juice and garlic. Drizzle evenly over chicken and, if desired, top with garlic salt and paprika.
  4. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Serve warm.
