Ingredients

  • 3 — 8oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1-2 cups cooked broccoli, chopped
  • 3 wedges of Swiss Cheese (Slices work fine too)
  • 1/4 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs
  • 1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 egg whites
  • 6 toothpicks

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Wash and dry the chicken breasts. Slice the chicken breasts length wise into two equal sized cutlets. You should have 6 cutlets.
  3. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Place egg whites in a shallow dish and set aside.
  5. Mix Panko breadcrumbs, whole wheat bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper in a separate shallow dish and set aside.
  6. Open Cheese wedges and separate into 6 equal pieces. Spread one piece of Cheese onto chicken cutlet. Add the cooked broccoli on top of the cheese. Roll chicken cutlet as tight as possible. Secure with 1-2 toothpicks.
  7. Next, take the secured cutlet filled with cheese and broccoli and brush lightly with egg whites. Immediately, place chicken cutlet into bread crumb mixture to cover. Place secured chicken cutlet, seam-side down, onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
  8. Repeat steps with other chicken cutlets. Spray chicken cutlets lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
  9. Bake chicken cutlets for 20-25 minutes until done.
