Tuesday Treats: Chicken-Parmesan Bundles

Mid-September means states fairs, cooler temps, and a return to favorite foods. I’ve always been a fan of Chicken Parmesan and I an even bigger fan of “combination foods” where I get my veggies delivered in a yummy way with my need to eat like carnivore. So, from the recipe people at Kraft comes this delicious recipe for Chicken Parmesan Bundles. Their cheesy center will be the highlight of dinnertime!

Prep Time: 35 min.
Total Time: 1 hr. 5 min.
Servings: 6 servings (in my family, this would be 3 servings because we’d each eat two. Just sayin’… 😉 )

What You Need
4 oz. (1/2 of 8-oz. pkg.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, thawed, well drained
1-1/4 cups KRAFT Shredded Low-Moisture Part-Skim Mozzarella Cheese, divided
6 Tbsp. KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese, divided
6 small boneless skinless chicken breasts (1-1/2 lb.), pounded to 1/4-inch thickness
1 egg
10 RITZ Crackers, crushed (about 1/2 cup)
1-1/2 cups CLASSICO FAMILY FAVORITES Traditional Pasta Sauce, warmed

Make It
Heat oven to 375ºF.

Mix cream cheese, spinach, 1 cup mozzarella and 3 Tbsp. Parmesan until blended; spread onto chicken. Starting at one short end of each breast, roll up chicken tightly. Secure with wooden toothpicks, if desired.

Whisk egg in shallow dish until blended. Combine cracker crumbs and remaining Parmesan in separate shallow dish. Dip chicken in egg, then roll in crumb mixture until evenly coated. Place, seam sides down, in 13×9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.

Bake 30 min. or until chicken is done (165ºF). Remove and discard toothpicks. Serve chicken topped with pasta sauce and remaining mozzarella.

While she might be a little kick-ass, Lennox Morgan from ASSASSIN’S MOON knows her way around the kitchen. She’s a fan of Italian food and has even convinced her Wolf hero, Griffith Caine, that chicken can be just as tasty as rare beef. Or at least Griff lets her think that. 😉

  1. Ooo, sounds yummy! And if I weren’t totally lazy, I’d be making a ton of these.

    LOL, and I can totally see Len making these and Griff eating them (by the pile while pining for some real meat). ;o)
