Chicken Stuffed with Ham, Broccoli, and Mozzarella

What you’ll need:

  • 4 thin-sliced chicken breasts
  • 4 slices of mozzarella cheese
  • 4 slices of Black Forest ham
  • 3/4 cup of broccoli florets, cut small
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tablespoon water
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs (I used regular, but wheat or panko works too)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • garlic powder
  • dried parsley
  • crushed red pepper (optional)
  • toothpicks
  • cooking spray or olive oil

How to make it:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. First, let’s blanch the broccoli. Blanching means to boil something for a few seconds or minutes, and then immediately stop the cooking by placing in cold water. This helps keep your veggies nice and brightly colored, and maintains a nice crispness. Bring a pot of salted water (enough to fully cover the broccoli) to a boil. Drop the broccoli in boiling, salted water for 2-3 minutes, and then immediately cool in cold water. Set aside.
  3. Season the chicken well with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  4. Start assembling. Place one slice of mozzarella cheese, followed by a slice and ham, and finally a few pieces of broccoli on top of each piece of chicken. Make sure not to overstuff! If any ham and/or cheese is hanging off the edge of the chicken, fold it in over the broccoli, and the roll up the entire chicken and secure with a toothpick. If there any excess ham or cheese hanging out the sides, you can remove some of it if you’d like.
  5. Add the breadcrumbs to a bowl, and season well with salt, pepper, garlic powder, dried parsley, and crushed red pepper.
  6. In a separate bowl, add the egg and 1/2 tablespoon water and whisk together.
  7. Take each chicken rollup and coat in the egg wash, then in the breadcrumbs. Be delicate to avoid loosing all your contents! Place on a baking sheet toothpick side down, covered with aluminum foil that’s been greased with cooking space or olive oil (for easy cleanup and prevents the chicken from sticking).
  8. Repeat until all 4 rollups are breaded and place in the oven for 25–30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through, and the cheese is melted.

Serves 4.

Bacon Wrapped Barbecue Chicken Tenders

What you’ll need:

  • 1 chicken breast
  • 1/2C barbecue sauce
  • 5-6 slices of bacon, cut in half

How to make it:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cover a baking sheet with tin foil, set aside.

Slice chicken breast into thin strips (roughly 3″x1″ and 1/4-1/2″ thick). If they’re too thick, they will take longer to cook and your bacon could burn.

Add barbecue sauce to a small bowl, coat chicken strips in sauce one at a time. After coating in sauce, wrap with a 1/2 piece of bacon as tight as you can. Use a toothpick to secure, if desired. Place on prepared baking sheet. Repeat process with remaining chicken strips and bacon slices.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, flipping half way through. *Barbecue sauce may begin to burn to your foil, that’s okay… just be prepared for it to happen.

Remove from the oven and enjoy hot. Serve with additional barbecue sauce or other dipping sauces if desired.

Serves 2, more if just snacking.

Chicken Piccata

What you’ll need:

  • 2-3 boneless chicken breasts, skin removed
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4-5 Tbsps. olive oil
  • 3/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice (from 1-2 lemons)
  • 1/4 cup capers
  • 2 Tbsp. Italian flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter

How to make it:

Wash and dry the chicken breasts in cold water. Take each breast and butterfly it, meaning hold the knife parallel to the cutting board and slice along its width. I cut all the way through to make two thinner pieces of meat, but feel free to keep the breast intact if you like bigger portions, opening up the two sides which are now held together by a meaty hinge.

Season breasts with salt and pepper, and dredge with flour. Shake off excess.

Heat 3 Tbsp. olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. In two batches, cook the chicken breasts until brown, about 3 minutes. Flip and cook until the other side is brown, 2-3 minutes. Remove to a plate. Add more oil to the pan as needed for the second batch.

To the empty pan, add the stock, lemon juice, and capers. Bring to a boil, scraping up the browned bits stuck to the bottom of the pan. Add the chicken breasts and their juices to the pan and simmer uncovered on low until sauce has reduced and chicken is heated through, 4-5 minutes. Remove chicken and whisk butter and parsley into sauce. Serve chicken over pasta and spoon sauce over the top.
