Artichoke Chicken

A great way to get the kids to eat veggies is to stuff them in things they already like!

Ingredients

Nonstick cooking spray
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
4 slices mozzarella cheese (about 3 ounces)
7 long stem artichokes or 1 can (14 ounces) artichoke hearts, drained and coarsely chopped
6 teaspoons grated Sunnyside Farms Parmesan Cheese
1 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
1-1/2 tablespoons lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon Sunny Select Salt
1/2 teaspoon Sunny Select Ground Black Pepper
4 teaspoons Sunny Select Olive Oil
Chopped fresh chives for garnish

Preparation

Prep: 10 minutes

Bake: 30 minutes • Serves: 4

1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray rimmed baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Slice chicken breast horizontally in half, but do not cut all the way through. Open chicken breasts and spread flat, cut side up. Cover each with 1 slice of mozzarella cheese, 1/4 cup artichokes and 1-1/2 teaspoons Parmesan cheese. Fold chicken breasts to enclose filling.

 

2. In medium bowl, combine breadcrumbs, 1 tablespoon lemon zest, salt and pepper. Rub outside of each chicken breast with 1 teaspoon oil. Dip chicken breasts into breadcrumb mixture to coat each side; place on prepared baking pan. Bake chicken 25 to 30 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165°.

 

3. In microwave-safe dish, heat remaining artichoke hearts in microwave oven on high 15 to 30 seconds or until heated through. Divide artichokes over each chicken breast. Serve garnished with remaining 1/2 tablespoon lemon zest and chives.
