Yes, of course, this is another Pinterest find! It was so easy to make and was really delicious! Just roll up some chicken breast with some garlic, basil, and mozarella cheese, and you'll have a really impressive dinner. I served mine with a side of pasta, but a nice salad or green veggies would be great too!
- 4 boneless chicken breast halves
- Salt and pepper
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
- 4 small slices Mozzarella Cheese or 2 ounces shredded Mozzarella cheese
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes (I used fresh parsley from my garden. I definitely should have minced it finer than in these pictures)
Heat oven to 375°. Lightly oil or line a baking pan.
Wash chicken and pat dry. Put the chicken, one piece at a time, in a food storage bag and pound gently with a meat mallet or other heavy object until about 1/4 inch thick. (I wanted smaller portions so I actually sliced my chicken breasts in half to make them 1/4 inch thick). Repeat with all of the chicken breasts. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Saute the garlic in butter for about 1 minute, just to soften. Combine the garlic with basil leaves. Spread basil mixture over each chicken breast; top with a slice of Mozzarella cheese or a little of the shredded Mozzarella cheese. Roll the chicken up and secure with toothpicks.
Beat the egg in a shallow bowl.
In a wide bowl, combine the bread crumbs and parsley.
Carefully dip the rolled chicken breasts in the egg; turning to coat well, then coat with bread crumbs. Arrange the chicken breast rolls on the baking sheet. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked.
