Ingredients
  

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 4 Tbsp parmesan cheese
  • 2 tsp oil
  • 4 Tbsp tomato pasta sauce
  • 1/2 cup light ricotta cheese
  • 1/3 cup reduced fat shredded cheese *I used a 3 cheese blend
  • 1 tsp italian herb

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375F and line a baking sheet with some parchment paper
  • Mix together the bread crumbs with 2 Tbsp parmesan cheese (set other 3 Tbsp aside)
  • Lay the crumb mixture out on a flat plate, and also sprinkle flour out on a separate flat plate.
  • Whisk egg and a little water, place in a bowl large enough to dip the chicken into
  • In a separate bowl mix together ricotta, shredded cheese, remaining 2 Tbsp parmesan cheese and italian seasoning.
  • Heat a large frying pan over medium heat on the stove and add oil
  • Cut open the chicken breast but not in half, just so you can stuff the breast.
  • Add 1 Tbsp tomato sauce and 1/4 ricotta mixture into each chicken breast, close the breast and then roll in the flour, dip in the egg then finish off with the bread crumb/parmesan mixture
  • Sear each breast in the frying pan for approximately 3 minutes each side then transfer to the baking sheet.
  • Bake chicken in the oven for 25 minutes.
  • Serve immediately, chicken will freeze well.
