Skinny Chicken Kiev

This is a healthier, simplified version of chicken kiev, based on a recipe from Diabetes UK.  Now you can enjoy this tasty dish without feeling guilty, by leaving butter out and baking instead of frying. It's also really quick and easy to make, of course!

Ingredients (3 servings) :

3 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
1 cup soft cheese, grated (I used mozzarella)
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tablespoons garlic & herb powder
1 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 egg, beaten
1 cup flour, seasoned
1 cup breadcrumbs
3 teaspoons olive oil


1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF / 200ºC.
2. Make a slit along one side of each of the chicken breasts, to form a pocket, making sure you don't cut all the way through.
3. Mix together the cheese, parsley, garlic, and garlic & herb powder and divide between the chicken pockets. Close the chicken pockets and secure with a cocktail stick.
4. Dip each chicken piece in flour, then egg, then breadcrumbs.
5. Drizzle over the oil and place on a non-stick baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the filling is beginning to ooze out.

Serve with potatoes, vegetables or salad. Om nom nom!
