Ingredients

  • 1 lb thin chicken breasts
  • 5 oz goat cheese
  • 1 apple - peeled cored & diced small
  • 1/4 cup chopped spinach
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, mix together the apple, spinach and goat cheese.
  2. Lay out your thin chicken breasts. Divide the cheese mixture between the chicken, spreading it on just one 1/2 of each piece. Fold the other 1/2 of each piece of chicken over and use a toothpick {spray with non-stick cooking spray first} to keep the chicken together.
  3. Get out 2 other small bowls - put the whisked egg in one and the breadcrumbs in the other.
  4. Dip the chicken in the egg and then into the breadcrumbs, coating the chicken in a thin layer.
  5. In a large skillet, heat about 1-2 tbsp of olive oil until hot. Place the chicken into the oil and cook until a nice golden brown and the juices run clear (about 8-10 minutes on each side). Always check to make sure your chicken is thoroughly cooked! NOTE: If you ever find the oil is too hot and cooking the outside of the chicken too fast, you can always put the chicken in the oven to finish cooking at 350 degree F.
