Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
4 each chicken breast, no skin, no bone, R-T-C
4 slices Monterey jack cheese slice
1/3 cup Seasoned bread crumbs
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese -- grated
2 tablespoons fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 large egg white
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
lemon wedges -- garnish

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place a chicken breast, skinned-side down, on a cutting board. Keeping the blade of a sharp knife parallel to the board, make a horizontal slit along the thinner, long edge of the breast, cutting nearly through to the opposite side. Open the breast so it forms two flaps, hinged at the center. Place a slice of cheese on one flap, leaving a 1/2 inch border at the edge. Press remaining flap down firmly over the cheese and set aside. Repeat with the remaining breasts.
In a shallow dish, mix breadcrumbs, Parmesan, parsley, salt and pepper. In another bowl, lightly beat egg whites with a fork. Holding a stuffed breast together firmly, dip in the egg whites and then roll in the breadcrumbs. Repeat with the remaining breasts and set aside.
In a large ovenproof skillet, heat oil over high heat until almost smoking. Carefully add the chicken and cook until browned on one side, about 2 minutes. turn the breasts over and place the skillet in the oven. Bake until the Chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 20 minutes. Serve with lemon wedges. Makes 4 servings
