Hungry Girl Today: 05.12.11
WEEKLY WEIGH-IN
Lean chicken cutlets ROCK, and they're even more fun when they're stuffed. (You know it's true.) Check out these new chicken recipes. We turned the volume up to 11 on the flavor dial!



HG Pop-Up Tip! To pound a chicken cutlet (as called for in these recipes), lay it between two pieces of plastic wrap on a clean and dry flat surface -- or place it in a sealable bag, squeeze out the air, and seal. Using a meat mallet, pound the cutlet until it's uniform in thickness. Start with the thickest point, and then even out the rest. Tada!

Our faux-fried stuffed peppers are amazing, but a meal they are not. If it's dinner you need, but poppers you CRAVE, make this...




Ingredients:
1/4 cup Fiber One Original bran cereal
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. onion powder
Dash cayenne pepper
One 5-oz. raw boneless skinless lean chicken breast cutlet, pounded to 1/2-inch thickness
Dash each salt and black pepper
1 wedge The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese
1 1/2 tbsp. chopped jarred jalapeño slices (about 6 slices)
1 tbsp. fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking pan with nonstick spray and set aside.

Place cereal in a sealable plastic bag and, removing as much air as possible, seal. Using a meat mallet (or other heavy utensil), carefully crush cereal to a breadcrumb-like consistency through the bag. Add garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne pepper, and shake to mix. Set aside.

Place chicken cutlet flat on a clean and dry surface; season with salt and black pepper. Spread the upward-facing side with cheese and evenly top with chopped jalapeño. Carefully roll up the cutlet over the filling. If needed, secure with toothpicks. Lightly cover all exposed areas of the chicken with egg substitute. Using your fingers or a spoon, evenly coat with breadcrumb mixture.

Place chicken roll in the baking pan. Cover the pan with foil, and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.

Carefully remove foil and return pan to the oven, uncovered, to bake until chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes.

Let cool slightly, remove toothpicks (if using), and dig in!

How do you make guilt-free chicken Parmesan even MORE fun? Roll it up, baby!




Ingredients:
1/4 cup Fiber One Original bran cereal
1 tbsp. reduced-fat Parmesan-style grated topping, divided
1/4 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. onion powder
1 stick light string cheese
One 5-oz. raw boneless skinless lean chicken breast cutlet, pounded to 1/2-inch thickness
Dash each salt and black pepper, or more to taste
1/4 cup canned stewed tomatoes with Italian seasoning (about 3 pieces), patted dry
1 tbsp. fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
Optional dip: low-fat marinara sauce

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking pan with nonstick spray and set aside.

Place cereal in a sealable plastic bag and, removing as much air as possible, seal. Using a meat mallet (or other heavy utensil), carefully crush cereal to a breadcrumb-like consistency through the bag. Add 1/2 tbsp. Parm-style topping, as well as the Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and onion powder. Shake to mix, and set aside.

Break string cheese into thirds and place in a blender or food processor -- blend at high speed until shredded/grated. (Or tear into pieces and roughly chop.) Set aside.

Place chicken cutlet flat on a clean and dry surface; season with salt and black pepper. Evenly place stewed tomatoes in the center of the cutlet and sprinkle with string cheese shreds and remaining 1/2 tbsp. Parmesan topping. Carefully roll up cutlet over the filling. (It will be STUFFED! Don't worry if it doesn't look perfect.) If needed, secure with toothpicks. Lightly cover all exposed areas of the chicken with egg substitute. Using your fingers or a spoon, coat with breadcrumb mixture.

Place chicken roll in the baking pan. Cover with foil, and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.

Carefully remove foil and return pan to the oven, uncovered, to bake until chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes.
