An ovenproof skillet is the key to this easy recipe. Breaded stuffed chicken breasts are browned on one side on the top of the stove, carefully flipped and transferred--still in the pan--to the oven to finish cooking. This guarantees a nice brown crust and moist, tender chicken.
4   boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 1 pound), trimmed of fat
4 slices  monterey jack cheese (2 ounces)
2   egg whites
1/3 cup  seasoned (Italian-style) breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons  freshly grated parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons  chopped fresh parsley
1/4 teaspoon  salt, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon  freshly ground pepper
2 teaspoons  extra-virgin olive oil
Lemon wedges  for garnish
Pampered Chicken Recipe at
Preheat oven to 400°F. Place a chicken breast, skinned-side down, on a cutting board. Keeping the blade of a sharp knife parallel to the board, make a horizontal slit along the thinner, long edge of the breast, cutting nearly through to the opposite side. Open the breast so it forms two flaps, hinged at the center. Place a slice of cheese on one flap, leaving a 1/2-inch border at the edge. Press remaining flap down firmly over the cheese and set aside. Repeat with the remaining breasts.

Lightly beat egg whites with a fork in a medium bowl. Mix breadcrumbs, Parmesan, parsley, salt and pepper in a shallow dish. Holding a stuffed breast together firmly, dip it in the egg whites and then roll in the breadcrumbs. Repeat with the remaining breasts.

Heat oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the stuffed breasts and cook until browned on one side, about 2 minutes. Turn the breasts over and place the skillet in the oven.

Bake the chicken until no longer pink in the center, about 20 minutes. Serve with lemon wedges.
