    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    This is a versatile recipe using your favorite herb with cream cheese, sandwiched in a chicken breast half, then breaded and baked for 30 minutes. Presto, quick and delicious dinner! I like oregano; sage or basil are other possibilities. Try 'em all!

      In a shallow dish, combine the 1/2 teaspoons salt and pepper, paprika and flour.
    6. 6
      In another dish, pour the beaten egg mixture.
    7. 7
      In a third dish, combine bread crumbs, garlic powder and Parmesan cheese.

      Place chicken on a lightly greased baking sheet, drizzle about a tablespoon of melted butter on each breast and bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes or until cooked through and tender.

      Wow, was this good. I thought the prep and cook times were right on point, and the chicken came out super moist -- not dry at all. I followed the recipe, using fresh oregano as you suggested, with some minor changes: Do green onions count as an herb? I wasn't sure, so I didn't know if they were supposed to go in the chicken at step 3, but I threw them in there anyway. I also used toothpicks to hold the chicken breasts together once I folded them back up. They made it a lot easier to dip the chicken in all the different bowls without having it come apart/get really messy. I like a lot of garlic, so I used more than 1/4 teaspoon, probably about 1/2 or a little more. I also used Italian-flavor breadcrumbs, which I thought went really well with the oregano... all the flavors were just constantly present in all the different levels. This was very delicious, and when it's done, it looks and tastes like it was very difficult to prepare -- a good way to trick people! Thanks for a nice way to use up cream cheese!

      My family flipped over this chicken. Next time I will make another half of the recipe so we can have all we want. And there will be a next time!
