Jiffy Chicken Surprise

Jiffy Chicken Surprise
30 Min

We call this recipe our Jiffy Chicken Surprise because it's ready in a flash, and has surprisingly big flavors for a dish that's so easy to make! This Italian chicken recipe might just be the best baked chicken your family has ever tried; the creamy ricotta cheese, Italian red sauce, and juicy chicken make sure of that. 

What You'll Need

  • 3/4 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 (4-ounce) can mushroom stems and pieces, drained
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, pounded to 1/2-inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons Italian-flavored bread crumbs
  • Nonstick cooking spray

What to Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the ricotta cheese, mushrooms, Parmesan cheese, oil, garlic powder, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.
  3. Spread the mixture evenly over chicken breasts and roll up jelly-roll style. Place on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/8 teaspoon of each salt and pepper. Top with bread crumbs and lightly spray each roll-up with cooking spray. (This gives it an oven-fried  quality you'll love!)
  4. Roast for 25 to 30 minutes or until juices run clear and crust is golden.
