Laughing Cow Chicken

I have seen this cheese stuff on one of my favorite recipe swap websites, Hungry Girl, many times, and she has suggested tons of things to do with it. I remembered this one in particular and finally tried it tonight! This recipe has been popping up lots of places, so I decided we better finally give it a spin. If you haven't ever used Laughing Cow, buy the light in whatever flavor near the cream cheese and prepackaged Gorgonzola type stuff. 1 Weight Watchers Point per wedge, and you can do lots of things with it--make a light alfredo sauce, spread it on some bread and broil it, stir it in some pasta by itself...all for good swiss flavor.

This recipe comes together in about 10 minutes, then you can clean up while it bakes! We had it with green beans and mushrooms and toasted french bread. It was a really great meal!

Laughing Cow Chicken
(aka Mad Cow Chicken:)

2 chicken breasts, butterflied (cut almost in half horizontally, so that you can stuff them)
2 Laughing Cow cheese wedges
1 1/2 t Italian seasoning
3 T Italian or regular bread crumbs
2 T grated parmesan cheese
cooking spray

Mix cheese and Italian seasonings together in small dish.

Combine bread crumbs and parmesan cheese in shallow dish.

Preheat oven to 375 F.

Spread half of the cheese mixture on the inside of each chicken breast. Close the chicken breast so it looks like it's never been opened.

Spray each breast with a small amount of cooking spray and then dip both sides in the bread crumb mixture.

Bake for about 35 minutes, depending on the size of the chicken.
