Feta-Stuffed Chicken

August 11, 2020

This is a light version of fried chicken that even the kids will enjoy. It comes together  quickly too, making for a quick, delicious weeknight dinner. The skinless, boneless chicken breast baked in panko breadcrumbs keeps the chicken lighter and  crispier creating a distinct texture that resists the absorption of oil. The chicken can be served over salad for lunch or with your favorite side vegetable for dinner.

Tip: Panko is a Japanese breadcrumb that results in a flake that is lighter, crispier, and airier than regular breacrumbs.
