Olive Garden Stuffed Chicken Parmigiana

Olive Garden Stuffed Chicken Parmigiana created by Bonnie G 2

Need I say more? Olive Garden, great, tasty Italian food for the whole family. My family loves this super easy and Delish recipe. COOKS NOTES: Leftover cheese filling may be kept in refrigerator for 2 weeks or frozen up to 3 months. Also makes good filling for manicotti. If using flat cookie sheet...be sure to form a "rim" so that melted shortening doesn't run off. Using foil helps with clean up:)NOTE: This is an adopted recipe and now that I have tried it myself I can only say: full credit to the previous owner for a wonderful recipe, I am lucky indeed to have become Mama to this one. Enjoy :)

ingredients

directions

  • Wash chicken breasts, do not dry, and slit lengthwise, almost through -- to make a pocket.
  • Combine ricotta, Romano, Parmesan, basil, thyme and oregano in mixing bowl. It will be crumbly.
  • Stuff into pocket of chicken, leaving a small "edge" to seal. Using egg white, rub around edge and pinch to seal. Or may use toothpicks, but be sure to remove before serving.
  • Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and melt butter and Crisco in oven at 350 degrees -- about 5 minutes.
  • Dredge wet chicken in breadcrumbs, coating well, and place on baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.
  • Turn chicken and bake another 15 to 20 minutes.
  • While baking, heat pasta sauce until hot. Remove chicken from oven and spoon hot pasta sauce over each.
  • Before serving, top with grated, fresh Parmesan cheese, if desired.

    So good and very easy, only thing I did different was cut the recipe back to serve 2, and about 5 minutes before removing from oven covered chicken with sauce and mozzarella cheese to allow it to heat up and the cheese to melt. So good, loved the cheese stuffing and flavors and impressive presentation with little actual work

    This was def a winner at my house. I was feeding a crowd so I ended up making 10 breast and had perfect amount of cheese filling. I also had no shortening so I used all margarine. I used two pans, one lined with foil and the other was an oven proof skillet. The ones in the skillet really got crispy but the ones on the foil didn't so I put them in a skillet on the stove for a minute to crisp them up. Serve with rotini pasta and Ragu Traditional sauce and boy was this dinner ever a hit! Thanks for sharing!!!!!
