Baked Broccoli & Cheddar Chicken Rollintini
Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • 2 lbs chicken breasts
  • 2 broccoli crowns, cut into small florets
  • sharp white cheddar cheese, sliced or shredded
  • 1 egg
  • Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • olive oil spray
  • toothpicks
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Boil the broccoli until fork tender, drain well. Chop into smaller pieces {this helps everything stay in place} and set aside to cool off.
  3. Slice the chicken breasts in half creating a thinner breast {on a cutting board, one hand flat on top of the breast, then carefully slice parallel to the cutting board}.
  4. Place the pieces between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound until thin.
  5. Lay each piece of chicken flat and place a piece of cheddar and some of the cooled broccoli.
  6. Roll the chicken up starting with the narrower side of the breast. Secure closed with two or three toothpicks.
  7. In a bowl whisk together the egg and a Tbsp of water to loosen it a bit.
  8. Roll the chicken in the egg and then into the breadcrumbs to coat well.
  9. Place onto a lined baking sheet. Repeat with all the chicken. Spray the chicken well with the olive oil, enough to moisten the breadcrumb.
  10. Bake the chicken for approx 18 minutes or until golden and cooked through.
