6. In a large non-stick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil, carefully pick up the stuffed breasts with both hands, and place them into the skillet.

NOTE: Here is where you can sprinkle over them with some of the remaining bread crumbs/cheese mixture. Then cover with a lid.

Q & A…

1. How many servings does this recipe yield? This recipe will yield 3 servings, but you can easily double the ingredients to make additional.

2. Can we “stuff” with other kinds of cheeses? Yes, you can. Try Swiss, Gruyere, or Fontina, they will work well.

3. Can we make them gluten-free? Yes, try GF “corn” bread crumbs.

4. Is it OK if we add some white wine? We never say no to wine! Yes, you may add some white wine, but do it at the end of the cooking. This will make them juicy, and of course less crispy, but that’s ok because the wine will always add an additional note to our already savory stuffed chicken.

Options for sides to serve them with…
