Ingredients

  • 4 whole boneless, skinless chicken breasts, (not chicken breast halves)
  • Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray
  • 1/4 teaspoon chopped green onion
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 (1 oz.) slices Swiss Cheese
  • 1/4 cup Pillsbury BEST® All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cup seasoned fine dry bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 large eggs, slightly beaten

Preparation Directions

  • PLACE each whole chicken breast between two sheets of plastic wrap. Pound to 1/4-inch thickness. Freeze 15 to 20 minutes for easier handling.
  • HEAT oven to 375ºF. Spray a 9 x 9 x 2-inch pan with no-stick cooking spray.
  • COMBINE green onion, parsley flakes, salt, pepper and garlic powder in small bowl. Set aside.
  • PLACE one piece of cheese in center of each chicken breast. Top with 1/4 onion mixture. Starting at narrow edge, roll each breast tightly, tucking in sides to enclose cheese and onion mixture. Dredge with flour.
  • COMBINE bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper in small bowl. Dip each rolled breast in beaten egg, then in crumb mixture to coat.
  • SPRAY each of coated breasts generously with no-stick cooking spray; arrange in prepared pan.
  • BAKE 30 to 35 minutes, or until golden brown.
