My four year old, that used to be an excellent eater, has recently decided she only likes a few foods. Luckily chicken and cheese are two things she finds acceptable, so this chicken is a winner.

LAUGHING COW CHICKEN INGREDIENTS

  • Chicken Breasts – You’ll want boneless, skinless chicken breasts for this recipe. You’ll also be butterflying them to stuff the cheese inside
  • Laughing Cow CheeseLaughing Cow Cheese comes in several different flavors (garlic herb, white cheddar, pepper jack, swiss, queso fresco chipotle, etc.) so you can easily switch this recipe up to suit your taste buds.
  • Italian Seasoning
  • Egg – you’ll whisk an egg and use it as the “glue” to hold the bread crumbs to the chicken.
  • Italian Bread Crumbs – again, depending on which flavor of cheese you use, you might want to use plain breadcrumbs or panko would be really good as well.

Butterfly your chicken breast (meaning, cut it almost all the way through, but not quite) and spread it open.

Spread a wedge of Laughing Cow cheese into the chicken & sprinkle with Italian seasoning.

You get crispy chicken without having to fry it. Win/win.

TOOLS TO HELP YOU:

  • Baking Sheet – I like nonstick pans with handles and a lip to prevent anything from sliding off (just me?)
  • Parchment Paper or a Silicone Baking Mat – Either will work – one is less wasteful and cheaper in the long run.
  • Santoku Knife – you’re going to be butterflying the chicken breasts so you want to make sure you have a good, sharp knife.
  • Whisk – You’ll need to whisk up the egg. I like that this whisk set comes with three different sizes for different tasks.
  • Tongs – I’ve recently started using tongs for more things in the kitchen and they really make things easier. Use them to dip the stuffed chicken into the egg then in the breadcrumbs to keep your fingers clean. You can also use a clean set for serving the cooked chicken.

  1. Made this on Sunday. Followed the recipe almost to the t. I added thawed frozen spinach and mixed it with the cheese and then stuffed the chicken. It came out creamy and the chicken was moist. Will definitely make again
