One of my resolutions this year was to have more friends in for dinner. J and I have decided that we want to have people in every 4-6 weeks for a meal. This was our second meal with friends in as many months. Once again, we had friends in with kids. So really there were 2 meals: This chicken for those of us over 10, and plain chicken for those of us not so much.
I present to you now an easy, elegant chicken that was enjoyed by all: Parmesan-Crusted Stuffed Chicken:
Ingredients:4 small boneless skinless chicken breasts8 fresh asparagus spears, trimmed1/2 c 4 Cheese Italiano Blend Shredded Cheese1/4 c Grated Parmesan Cheese
1. Heat oven to 400F.
2. Make a cut in one long side of each chicken breast, being careful to not cut through to opposite side. Fill pockets with asparagus and shredded cheese.
3. Place on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray; top with Parmesan.
4. Bake 20 min. or until chicken is done.From Kraft Canada
I think that the Kraft powdered parmesan probably crusts better, but the flavour in this was good. I'm also currently in love with the 4 cheese Italiano shredded cheese blend. It needed the oomph provided by the blend of flavours.
I roasted potatoes and steamed broccoli as sides. They were good too.
