boneless skinless chicken breasts
gruyere, or, Swiss cheese
reduced-fat cream cheese
whole wheat breadcrumbs
fresh parsley, chopped
extra virgin olive oil, divided
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- Sprinkle chicken with 1/4 t pepper and salt. Combine cheeses in a bowl. And the remaining 1/4 t pepper, breadcrumbs, parsley and 2 t oil in another bowl.
- Heat the remaining oil in a large ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook the chicken until browned on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Move the chicken to the center so all pieces are touching. Spread with cheese mixture, sprinkle with ham, then top with breadcrumb mixture.
- Bake until the chicken is no longer pink and registers 165F internally, 5-7 minutes.
