Mar 23, 2019
Many beginners usually find cooking an intimidating task, and so are reluctant to try their hand at it. To help you guys out, here are some easy dinner recipes, that are not only simple, but delicious too.
Nowadays, due to our hectic and busy lifestyles, cooking has taken a back step. Where we normally think of spending time with family and friends, going for a movie or just simply relaxing at home in our spare time, cooking comes nowhere close to our list of 'dos'.
As a result, most of the time, we rely on fast or junk food, which do help us in such situations, but are definitely not very healthy for our body. Don't lose heart, as here comes some ideas that are yummy and won't require much of time or effort.
Ham & Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
¼ cup grated Swiss, Monterey Jack or part-skim mozzarella cheese
½ cup plain dry breadcrumbs
2 tbsp chopped ham
2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 egg white
2 tsp Dijon mustard
Freshly ground pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 400°F, and slightly coat the baking sheet with cooking spray.
Take a bowl and mix cheese, ham, mustard, and pepper.
Cut a horizontal slit along the thin, long edge of a chicken breast half and stuff ¼ of the filling in the center.
Fill the remaining chicken breast pieces in similar manner.
Lightly beat egg white in a bowl and put the breadcrumbs in a shallow glass dish.
Carefully hold the chicken breast half together, dip in the egg white, and then dredge in the breadcrumbs
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, put the chicken pieces.
Cook until golden brown from both the sides.
Now keep the chicken, browned-side up, on the prepared baking sheet, bake for 20 - 25 minutes, and serve hot.
