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!

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degres F.
  2. Flatten open chicken breasts; spread 1 tablespoon of cream cheese on one half of each breast (resist the temptation to use more-- a little cream cheese goes a looooooong way!).
  3. Evenly distribute the fresh herbs on top of that and season with salt and pepper.
  4. "Fold"the chicken breasts back up and press tightly, tucking in cream cheese a bit.
  5. In a shallow dish, combine the 1/2 teaspoons salt and pepper, paprika and flour.
  6. In another dish, pour the beaten egg mixture.
  7. In a third dish, combine bread crumbs, garlic powder and Parmesan cheese.
  8. First dip chicken breasts in flour mixture, then beaten egg mixture, then bread crumb mixture.
  9. 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.
