Oven Roasted Stuffed Chicken Breasts
This recipe always impresses! Chicken breasts are stuffed with a ricotta cheese and walnut in the dressing mixture.
What you need:
1 cup part skim milk ricotta cheese
3/4 cup finely chopped walnuts
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon parsley
2 cloves diced garlic
a little pepper to your liking
just a dash of salt(I really use hardly any salt)
6 boneless chicken breast halves(skinless for me)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a large baking dish.
In a bowl, mix the ricotta cheese, walnuts, Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, and spices
Split the chicken breasts to form a pocket, and stuff with the ricotta cheese dressing mixture. Arrange the chicken breasts in a single layer in the prepared baking dish, and brush with oil. I put extra dressing on top of chicken too.
Bake 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.
