What are the best ways to serve Them?

I love serving these chicken breasts with pasta or they are filling enough that you could even eat them alone with a big salad. Holiday entertaining is also around the corner, and this easy chicken dinner looks fancy enough that you could definitely serve it at a dinner party! Stuffed chicken always looks impressive and no one will ever know that it took you only minutes to prepare these!

What else can you put in the lasagna filling?

If I have any pesto in my fridge, I like to throw a tablespoon into the filling, but it’s definitely optional! Fresh basil works well too and adds a bright flavor to the filling! If you are short on time, use your favorite store bought marinara, or if you have half an hour, you can make my favorite easy marinara sauce!

I really recommend baking this in a cast iron enamel pan! You can take it straight from oven to table then and it looks beautiful! Plus, one less dish to wash!

Ingredients

For the chicken

  • 4 thin chicken breasts no thicker than 1/4 inch
  • 1 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups marinara sauce

For the lasagna filling

  • 1/2 cup shredded provolone or mozzarella cheese or a mixture of the two
  • 3/4 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp fresh chopped basil
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg beaten

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Pour sauce into the bottom of an oven proof skillet or casserole dish.
  • Set up a chicken dredging station, with one shallow bowl of egg and one of the parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs. Dredge chicken through egg, shaking off excess, then through the breadcrumb mixture, making sure to coat both sides equally. Set chicken aside.
  • Mix together lasagna filling ingredients in a small mixing bowl. Split filling evenly between the four chicken pieces. Place filling in the center of each chicken breast. Roll chicken over, tucking in one end under the other. 
  • Place seam side down in the sauce. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. If cheese runs out, push back in before it cools. It will set up as it cools. Let sit 5-10 minutes to allow ricotta mixture to set up.
