Stuff it

I ate one real meal when I was in NY. It was a Stuffed Chicken Breast with Broccoli and Cheese. This is my first attempt at recreating it. It's not exactly there yet (seasonings are slightly different) but it still turned out a yummy keeper. Hope you enjoy it.

If you like the concept but aren't into broccoli try my other stuffed chicken breast dish Chicken Roulades.

Shelly's Broccoli and Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast

4 boneless skinless Chicken Breasts, pounded thin
1/2 yellow Onion, diced
2 green Onions, diced
1 cup Broccoli, cooked chopped
Kosher Salt and freshly ground Pepper, to taste
1/2 teaspoon Greek Seasoning
4- 1 oz chunks of Swiss Cheese
1 Egg, beaten
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
Olive oil

Pound chicken breasts to about 1/3" thick. Saute onions in oil/butter. Add to cooked broccoli. Add seasonings. Mix. Place spoon of broccoli mixture on chicken and top with a chunk of swiss cheese. Roll up; securing with a toothpick. Dip each breast-roll in beaten egg. Roll in Parmesan cheese and place in a pyrex baking dish. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes covered, 10 minutes uncovered or until slightly browned and cooked through.
