Phase 3 – Chicken with Herbed Cheese

4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves

1/2 cup low-fat ricotta cheese

1 egg beaten

2 tbsp minced parsley and chives or other herbs as desired

1 tsp crushed garlic

1 tsp minced onion

3 tbsp melted butter

sea salt

freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Cut a pocket in each chicken breast. 

In a small bowl combine the cheese with the egg and mix thoroughly.  Stir in herbs, garlic and onion.

Stuff each breast with several tablespoons of the cheese mixture.  Fasten with toothpicks if necessary.  Season both sides with salt and pepper and arrange in a single layer in an oiled shallow roasting pan.  Pour melted butter over the breasts.  Back for 25 minutes until chicken is no longer pink.  Turn over once when halfway done to brown both sides.  Let chicken rest 5 minutes before serving.
